The Royal Wedding celebrations continued with newlywed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle changing for the evening reception with the bride choosing Stella McCartney custom gown and Princess Diana’s ring.
The happy couple were snapped leaving for Frogmore house with the new Duchess of Sussex wearing a bespoke high-neck lily-white dress made of silk crepe by Stella McCartney and shoes by Aquazurra with the soles painted in baby blue. The large blue cocktail ring, that belonged to her late mother-in-law, stood out on Meghan’s finger as the pair waved at the crowds of people from their blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero.
Around 200 guests were awaiting to continue the celebration at 17th century mansion on the grounds of Windsor castle hosted by Prince Charles. Among the guests were members of the Royal family such as Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and the Countess of Wessex. Celebrities attending the evening do included Serena Williams and Priyanka Chopra in Dior who wrote on her Instagram account:
“Every once in a while there is a moment when time stands still.. that happened today.. You my friend.. were the epitome of grace, love and beauty. Every choice made at this wedding by you both will go down in history, not just because it was your wedding but because this incredible wedding stood for change and hope. Both things that the world needs desperately. Thank you for being the perfect picture of all things good.. seeing your union and love blessed in front of my eyes Made me so happy.. and tear up! I wish you both love happiness and togetherness always.”
We are yet to learn of exact details of speeches from the evening, but Kensington Palace did confirm earlier that Meghan Markle will break Royal protocol and address guests. What we know for sure is that the wedding cake served at the reception was designed by Claire Ptak and featured elderflower syrup made at The Queen’s residence in Sandringham from the estate’s own elderflower trees, as well as a light sponge cake uniquely formulated for the couple.
According to the Telegraph, which reported that the couple chose Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)” as the song for their first dance. The evening event also included a performance from Sir Elton John and was rounded off with an impressive display of fireworks over Windsor Castle grounds.
We can’t wait to see the official photographs from the wedding which were captured by Alexi Lubomirski, who also took Meghan and Prince Harry’s engagement photos.
