All The Juicy Details From The Royal Wedding Reception
- Only 200-guests were invited to the Frogmore reception which began promptly at 7pm. The Clooneys, Elton John and Serena Williams, are said to have been chauffeured to the reception in Land Rovers however Pippa Middelton and Meghan’s “Suits” castmates weren’t invited, neither were Harry’s old Army friends and his ex Chelsy Davy didn’t snag an invite either.
- James Corden at one point led a “dance-off” with Harry, Wills, and even Prince Charles, while Clooney danced with both Meghan and Kate. Clooney also began pouring the drinks at the tequila bar.
- Conflicting reports claim Harry and Meghan danced their first dance to Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” but “Daily Mail” reports they actually first danced to the soul classic “Land of A Thousand Dances” by Wilson Pickett.
- Most of the older guests left by 10:30pm and that’s about the time the real party started, complete with beer pong led and won by Serena Williams who "played like it was tennis."
- Harry’s friend Tom “Skippy” Inskip also gave a speech, but he was actually under censorship from the palace to not reveal too much about a 2012 boy’s trip to Vegas where Harry made tabloids for his partying ways.
- The no phones allowed party played up a sort of carnival theme with “dirty burgers” and cotton candy.
- Idris Elba ended up DJing for a bit while James Corden acted as MC and Prince Harry, “furiously” danced all night long.
- The party went on into the wee hours of the night with guests being charted off close to 3:30am. Last to leave the dance floor? None other than George Clooney.
- Before night’s end, Meghan didn’t want her guests leaving empty handed, so she gifted her closest friends $604 friendship bracelets as thanks for supporting her.
The palace also released the official wedding photos, check them out below!
