Inside Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Royal Wedding Reception

New, and incredible, details about the party at Frogmore House


Anyone else dream about the royal wedding all weekend? We can't stop thinking about the moment Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said "I will," and every detail of the beyond-gorgeous day. But right now we're dying to know more about the exclusive evening reception Prince Charles hosted for the couple at Frogmore House, and we've got even more royal wedding reception details.

After saying their vows inside St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, and the wonderful carriage ride around town that gave us so many sweet newlywed moments, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made quick wardrobe changes (the Duchess into a sleek Stella McCartney gown that gave us major Carolyn Bessette Kennedy vibes and Aquazzura heels, and the Duke into a classic black tuxedo) and took off for their reception at Frogmore House. Details of the party are just starting to come out, and it sounds like quite the bash. From Prince William's "cheeky" speech, to the fireworks display and more music from Elton John after his performance at the wedding breakfast, we're loving every detail about the royal wedding reception.

The party, which began sharply at 7 p.m., is said to have gone on into the wee hours, with guests being treated to midnight snacks (that's an American custom!), custom cocktails, and beer pong. According to the Daily Mail, the star-studded event, hosted by Prince Charles, was an amazing party. Prince William's best man speech is said to have shown off his sense of humor, while Meghan Markle gave a speech thanking the royal family for welcoming her into their fold, and James Corden (carpool karaoke!) gave a surprise speech.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's guests are rumored to have been treated to another performance by Elton John—who this time played four of his hits: "Your Song," "Tiny Dancer," "Circle of Life," and "I'm Still Standing." One of Prince Harry's favorite DJs, DJ Sam Totolee, had the newlyweds and their guests dancing all night. As far as food and drinks go, the royal guests were treated to a bar of candy-floss (known in America as cotton candy), dirty burgers for a midnight snack, and a signature cocktail named "When Harry Met Meghan." And the couple's first dance song is beyond relatable—let's get real, we all love Whitney Houston! Meghan and Harry had their first dance as husband and wife to Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" according to The Telegraph. Love. It.

George Clooney apparently hit the dance floor with both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, swoon. And James Corden is said to have refereed a "dance off" between Princes Harry, William, and Charles. While Idris Elba DJ'd, and Serena Williams won big at beer pong. Of course.

The night concluded with an amazing display of fireworks over Windsor Castle. Sounds like the party of the decade!
