And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

5:1 Moses and Aaron went in. It is significant that Moses was able to gain immediate access to Pharaoh and that Pharaoh called him by name (Exodus 5:4). Moses was well known at court, not only by having been raised in part by the Egyptian princess but also because (according to Josephus) he had previously served with great distinction as an officer in the Egyptian army.
