This would seem like the most fun thing to do! Did you know? James Corden set up an impromptu dance-off between Prince Harry, Prince William, and Prince Charles at the royal wedding reception. It must have been royal treat indeed!
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said their 'I dos' in the morning at the St George's Chapel in Windsor and then in the evening headed off to their wedding reception. The couple's first dance was to 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' which set the evening in the right tone before other guests started to join in. 39-year-old Corden has accompanied Prince Harry on several night outs to party and drink and provided the entertainment at the party at Frogmore.
He decided to referee an unexpected and delightfully surprising dance-off between Prince Harry, Prince William, and Prince Charles. The new Duchess of Sussex and her mother, Doria Ragland, as reported by The Sun.
A source shared with The Sun, "James Corden did his best to entertain and it went down an absolute treat. He even compered a dance-off between Harry, Charles, and William. Everyone was laughing because it’s something no one expected. Meghan and her mum also joined in. Then everyone danced, which really kicked off the party."
The bride's American heritage was kept intact with a super fun game of beer pong, where players are required to throw table tennis balls into cups of beer and then consume it. The source continued, "Serena Williams played beer pong like it was tennis. Everyone had so much fun with it, there were even fireworks."
Prince Charles and Princess Camilla left the party at the Frogmore House by 11 pm before things started to get too wild. "Prince Charles and Camilla headed off at about 10.30pm, leaving the younger ones to party. It started to close down at about midnight to 1 am — then people headed off to London, although some stayed," the source continued.
George Clooney had the pleasure of dancing with Meghan Markle and even Kate Middleton. That must have been something! And actor Idris Alba also took to the DJ decks for some rounds of great music.
The guests feasted on Pork Belly and Pol Roger champagne. There was also festival-themed food with mini burgers and bespoke cocktails. The source added, "There was a glass marquee for the dinner, festival-themed stalls and bars outside, with different themed drinks."
"There were burger bar stalls, whiskey bars, candy floss, games to play, acts performing and a DJ with a dance floor. There was a gin vermouth cocktail created for Charles and Camilla, who are both massive gin fans apparently," the source continued.
The cars were supplied by Jaguar Land Rover and there were also VIP buses on call with tinted windows to help guests get around. The Sun also went on to share that guests were also offered a special cocktail which was titled 'When Harry met Meghan'. The cocktail is a rum-based drink with a touch of ginger ale.
The source shared, "That also went down a storm. Everyone found it hilarious." The black-tie evening party was a sit-down dinner with 200 people for which Meghan and Prince Harry had hired Clare Smyth, Britain’s top chef and the first woman to hold three Michelin stars.
Meghan gave a speech where she thanked Prince Charles for walking down the aisle and for such a "warm welcome". Harry also gave a speech and said he looked forward to "spending the rest of my life" with Meghan. Best man Prince William, made references to their late mother, Diana, who Harry has said would have adored his new wife.
