Some 300 close family and friends were lucky enough to enjoy the lavish party last night at Buckingham Palace.
Highlights of the evening included the vocal stylings of charter-topper Ellie Goulding with her rendition of “Your Song” – written by Sir Elton John. The sing-songwriter told The Daily Mail, “It was an amazing honor to be asked by Kate and William to perform at their party. The atmosphere was incredible and it is a night I will never forget.”
The black-tie reception began with dinner in Buckingham’s ballroom. We’re guessing the food was OK.
One of the bigger events of the night was Prince Harry’s best man speech. And, while we’re still waiting for details on exactly what Hot Ginge said, we do know that his impending speech was the source of some consternation throughout the day for the Queen and Prince Phillip, who maybe don’t approve of his court jester antics.
Known for his bad jokes, the Queen and Prince Philip stayed away from Buckingham Palace during the late night party, afraid of what Harry might do or say.
Probably overkill, Liz. We haven’t heard reports of any scandalous jabs or lecherous broom closet rendezvous, but we’ll let you know if we do.
Seems the worst dig Harry got in was some quips about his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, being dwarfed by Kate Middleton, who probably stood around 6-foot + in her three-inch heels last night.
The Mail states that Pippa seemed unamused by Harry’s jokes throughout the night, but that sounds like hype to us. She was probably just trying her hardest not to flirt. Wouldn’t you?
After slicing into the delicious, but creepily phallic-looking wedding cake, the geezers started leaving around 11PM. Dancing into the small hours ensued – we’re guessing Pip and Kate didn’t get low to the likes of “Apple Bottom Jeans” but we can’t be sure. This party was on lock-down. (What do you want from us?)
Prince Harry left the party in a coach, while his guest Chelsy Davy left in a royal car with Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. (Yes, there was room for Chelsy in the backseat, just beyond the reach of Beatrice’s encroaching fascinator.)
A brief fireworks display marked the end of the whirlwind day of celebrations, around 3 AM.
The Middletons and their guests stayed at the Goring Hotel near the palace last night, where there appeared to be a bit of an after-after party. Guests who stayed at the Goring reportedly were stumbling back to their rooms as late as 5 AM, and looked worse for the wear this morning…except for Pip and Carole who looked well put together this morning. Way to not over-do it, ladies!
The new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge helicoptered away from the palace today and will spend the weekend in an unknown UK location. Apparently, Wills needs to go back to work on Tuesday, so the couple will delay their honeymoon a bit. Lame.
That’s all the details we have at the moment, readers. Stay glued to UKate for breaking news on the honeymoon location and much more!
