Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s sixth anniversary weekend was marked with a double date dinner.

On May 18, just one day before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated six years of marriage, the couple was spotted dining out, Tatler reports. They headed to Lucky’s, a steakhouse in Montecito, the coastal California town where Meghan, 42, and Harry, 39, relocated in 2020 after stepping back as working members of the royal family. The local restaurant, famous for its steak and seafood, is a go-to for the couple, who have also been spotted there with Katharine McPhee and David Foster.

Joining them for the night out were Tracy and Brian Robbins, according to the outlet. Earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex posed with Brian, the CEO of Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon, and Tracy, a fashion designer, on the red carpet at the premiere of Bob Marley: One Love in Jamaica.

Tracy was also one of the early recipients of the first product from Meghan’s new lifestyle brand, American Riviera Orchard. The designer shared photos on social media of a gift basket featuring a jar of strawberry jam with a numbered label of out 50.

Tracy said on Instagram, “Thank you for the delicious basket! I absolutely love this jam so not sure I’m sharing with anyone 🙂 @americanrivieraorchard Thank you M! 🤍 #montecitogoodness #americanrivieraorchard.”

While Prince Harry and Meghan tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle in a televised royal wedding on May 19, 2018, the Duchess of Sussex revealed during their 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey that they secretly exchanged vows three days earlier.

“Three days before our wedding, we got married — no one knows that — but we called the Archbishop and said, ‘This thing, this spectacle is for the world, but we want our union between us,” Meghan said. “So the vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our backyard with the Archbishop of Canterbury.”

“I’ve thought about this a lot because it was like having an out-of-body experience I was very present for,” she added. “That’s the only way I can describe it because the night before I slept through the night entirely, which in and of itself is a bit of a miracle. And then woke up and started listening to that song ‘Going to the Chapel.’ And just tried to make it fun and light and remind ourselves that this was our day. But I think we were both really aware, even in advance of that just, this wasn’t our day. This was the day that was planned for the world.”

In past years, Meghan and Prince Harry — who are now parents to 5-year-old son Prince Archie and 2-year-old daughter Princess Lilibet — marked their wedding anniversary by exchanging traditional gifts.

“They love to do their own take on traditional wedding gifts,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “The first anniversary was paper, and Meghan wrote out the wedding speech and had it framed for him.”

On their second anniversary in 2020, “They both gave each other gifts based on ‘cotton.’ Undoubtedly, it was a very creative and romantic gesture as all their gifts are to one another.”

According to The Knot, gifts of iron are traditionally exchanged on the sixth anniversary.

Meghan and Prince Harry recently returned home to California after a three-day trip to Nigeria, where they championed their Archewell Foundation’s mental health initiatives and promoted Harry’s Invictus Games.

“I’m so happy with the growth of Invictus and to include Nigeria,” the Duke of Sussex tells PEOPLE. “You know what Africa means to me over the years. It is a very, very special place, and to be able to include Nigeria now [in Invictus], I’m very happy.”
