Inside Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding reception as pair celebrate second anniversary
After months of anticipation, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot at Windsor Castle on 19 May, 2018.
While the groom expressed how nervous he was throughout the ceremony in a hilarious whisper to his new wife, the bride looked cool and calm as she swanned down the aisle in her custom Givenchy gown.
Royal Wedding guests, meanwhile, looked like they were enjoying themselves throughout the ceremony, from Harry's royal family members to Meghan's Suits co-stars.
But what happened behind the scenes? Here's what you need to know about the Royal Wedding reception as the royals got personal and celebrities partied the night away.
Prince Harry's tribute to Meghan
Once away from the cameras, Prince William's little brother gave a touching speech about his bride, according to reports.
Charity boss Suhani Jalota revealed: "Some people were even crying. I think it was just a really nice atmosphere to be in where everybody felt loved."
"He was talking about his wife and, you know, everybody was clapping because it was the first time he was using that term for Meghan. It was really nice."
Prince Charles' speech
The father of the groom, who also walked Meghan down the aisle, gave a speech too.
A wedding guest detailed how Prince Charles left the room in tears after giving a speech to his "darling old Harry."
One guest explained how, after joking about changing his nappy as a child, the first in line to the throne said how happy he was to walk his new daughter-in-law down the aisle.
James Corden's key role
There were many guests arriving the Royal Wedding that had viewers guessing their link to the royal couple.
James Corden and his wife, famous both in the UK and the USA thanks to his chat show, was one of the guests at the ceremony.
But as it turns out, he had a special role at the reception, too.
Comedian James' job was to act as compère – introducing speeches and so on – throughout the evening, according to the Mirror Online.
Elton John's performance
Elton John, who famously sang a take on classic Candle In The Wind at Princess Diana's funeral, performed again for the royals at her youngest son's wedding.
The old family friend sang romantic tune Your Song for the bride and groom, according to reports by the Daily Star.
Guest Suhani noted: "It became like a mini concert in the reception area. It was great."
But what about once all the formalities were over with? Of course, it was then time to party.
Guests were even provided with slippers so they could fling off their heels before heading to the dance floor.
Pretty Little Liars actress Troian Bellisario – and wife of Meghan’s former Suits co-star, Patrick J Adams – took to Instagram to share a snap off the cosy slippers after taking off her heels.
With celebrity DJ Sam Totolee providing the tracks, we're sure the guests partied the night away.
