In case you missed it (we’re not sure how), there was a royal wedding over the weekend. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot in a momentous ceremony at St. George’s Chapel on Saturday, May 19. From Meghan walking herself part-way down the aisle, to the flavor of their wedding cake, the newlyweds broke from tradition on a number of occasions on their big day. And that didn’t stop at their reception, either.
Harry and Meg reportedly decided to ditch the traditional slow song for their first dance and instead opted for an upbeat '80s pop hit. According to The Telegraph, the happy couple kicked things off with the late Whitney Houston’s anthem "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," which is an absolutely amazing choice for a first dance in our opinion. It’s also been said that the mega fit and possibly the coolest guy on this earth Idris Elba took to the decks to DJ later in the evening.
Despite the lively choice of music, emotions were reportedly still running high thanks to a series of heartfelt speeches from the likes of Prince Charles, Prince William, and even the bride. According to the Express, Meghan thanked the royals for welcoming her into their family and reportedly ended her short but "emotional" speech, saying, "I have found my prince." Suhani Jalota, a guest at the reception and founder of Myna Mahila charity, told the paper, "Some people were even crying. I think it was just a very, really nice atmosphere to be in where everybody felt really loved."
