Harry and Meghan tied the knot on a television service on May 19, 2018 in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. Then the couple left for a more private reception where they shared their first dance.
Intimate details of the evening reception after their lavish wedding in Windsor in 2018 have been revealed in the new royal biography.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were married at St George’s Chapel – with the ceremony being broadcast around the world.
The couple then left for their private party at nearby Frogmore House.
According to Harper’s Bazaar UK, the book revealed the couple were completely ‘happy on the big day’ and shared their first dance song to Wilson Pickett’s ‘I’m in Love’.
American soul singer and songwriter Wilson Pickett is also known for his acclaimed hits “In The Midnight Hour” and “Mustang Sally”.
The excerpt added: “Meghan also raised her own toast at the reception.”

Elton John also performed a few songs live that day.
For their wedding ceremony, Meghan and Harry hired the Kingdom Gospel Choir to perform Ben E. King’s classic “Stand by Me” and Etta James “This Little Light of Mine” as they walked down the aisle after their wedding.
The book also claimed that the couple struggled with palace aides before the wedding.
The book says Prince Harry was even criticized by the Queen for his offensive language.
The ‘revelation’ came after the prince got upset when the Queen’s dresser and confidante Angela Kelly was unable to respond to Meghan’s sudden request to visit Buckingham Palace.
The sudden trip came as Meghan was looking to travel to the palace with her hairdresser to try on a tiara the couple had chosen for their wedding.
However, it has been pointed out that protocol dictates that an appointment must be made to access the Queen’s jewelry.
Hearing this news, Harry allegedly used offensive language about Ms Kelly as he pressured courtiers to persuade her to come to London.
In doing so, the Duke wanted the staff to unlock the cupboard where the tiara was kept.
The Queen learned of the explosion through Ms Kelly and called her grandson to a private meeting.
A royal source said: “He has been put firmly in his place. ”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry said they did not contribute or give interviews for the book.
