Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, made the most of their reception this past weekend. The event saw them letting their hair down as they danced to classic songs.


The couple’s first dance was to a Whitney Houston classic that the Duchess was fond off. They even had actor-turned-DJ, Idris Elba, playing at their event according to The Telegraph.

Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles, hosted the wedding reception at Frogmore House on Saturday. The state is about a mile away from Windsor Castle.

There the couple had 200 hundred guests which included family members and close friends. At the event for their first dance, Harry and Meghan chose livelier tunes, from 1960s R&B to the dance hits of the 1980s.


Their opening song was I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston. Guests were treated to a dinner after a long day in front of the cameras at Windsor Castle.

The private evening reception saw guests let down their hair with the alcohol flowing. They were welcomed into a glass marquee in the grounds where they had their sit-down meal, listened to emotional speeches, and a wide range of music.

Younger members of the Royal Family were able to mix with Hollywood’s finest. Everyone was banned from taking their mobile phones to keep the event discreet.

Some family members who were invited included Princess Beatrice, Eugenie and the Earl and Countess of Wessex. Celebrities in attendance were George and Amal Clooney, Tom Hardy, and Idris Elba, who took to spinning on the DJ decks.

James Corden, Figueras, Priyanka Chopra, and Serena Williams also received invitations. Late into the evening, the skies lit up from a firework display that could be seen over the house.


During the reception, Meghan made a speech were she complimented her new husband and expressing her joy at being welcomed into his family. It was reported that earlier Harry had moved some guests to tears with his own speech.


There he described his new bride as having "navigated everything with such grace." He added that they made a great team.

The groom and his brother, best man Prince William, both made touching references to their late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.

Older guests, including Prince Charles, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, Duke of York and Doria Ragland, the bride’s mother, were able to retire earlier if they wished. The rest of the group finally left the event at around 2 am.

They went back to their hotels or stayed nearby.
