The brand new Duchess of Sussex headed for an evening wedding reception in a vintage Jaguar, and a stunning new gown. 

After a lunch reception for 600 guests at St. George’s Hall of Windsor Castle, newlyweds Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan hopped in a silver-blue 1968 Jaguar E-type (with the license plate “E180519” to commemorate the wedding date) and drove off to a more intimate sitdown dinner for 200.

Meghan wore what designer Stella McCartney described as a high-neck lily-white silk crepe gown, as the couple exited the castle and climbed into the vintage car. They headed to the evening event, hosted by Prince Charles at Frogmore House on the estate.

According to the palace, approximately 7,500 servings of food were prepared for the lunch by a team of 25 led by Royal Chef Mark Flanagan. John performed three songs at the request of Prince Harry. “It was a very, very touching reception,” Prince Harry’s friend Dominic Reid told CNN. “Very private affair. Really nice speech by the Prince of Wales.”

Prince Charles ended his emotional remarks by telling his son, “My darling old Harry, I’m so happy for you,” one guest told People, while another informed the magazine that attendees cheered when Prince Harry referred to the couple as “my wife and I” during a “very off-the-cuff” and “lovely” speech. “He promised that all the Americans wouldn’t steal the swords and said, ‘Please, when you leave, be quiet as you don’t want to wake the neighbors,’ which was quite fun.” (Duchess Meghan will make her speech at the evening function.)

The visitors on the Queen’s reception had quite a lot of tasty victuals to nosh on, beginning with an abundance of canapes:

  • Scottish langoustines wrapped in smoked salmon with citrus crème fraiche 
  • Grilled English asparagus wrapped in Cumbrian ham 
  • Lawn pea panna cotta with quail eggs and lemon verbena 
  • Heritage tomato and basil tartare with balsamic pearls 
  • Poached free-range rooster sure in a flippantly spiced yogurt with roasted apricot 
  • Croquette of confit Windsor lamb, roasted greens and shallot jam 
  • Heat asparagus spears with mozzarella and sun-blush tomatoes 

For individuals who most popular their canapes at the sweeter facet:

  • Champagne and pistachio macarons 
  • Orange crème brûlée tartlets 
  • Miniature rhubarb disintegrate tartlets
