Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding ceremony yesterday was a gorgeous, sweet, and public affair, with the events at St. George's Chapel televised for the entire world to watch-their evening reception, on the other hand, was a much more private and secretive todo.

Following the ceremony and a lunchtime reception (where Elton John reportedly performed a rendition of "Circle of Life" from The Lion King, which, incredible), Harry and Meghan changed into party attire-a tux for him, a tremendous bespoke Stella McCartney gown for her-and headed to their nighttime party in a fancy Jaguar.

Here, the best details, news, and gossip from the party:

Prince William Gave a "Naughty" Best Man Speech

When he was asked how he felt about his brother choosing him to be best man, Prince William stated, "It feels great, a real delight ... revenge is sweet," so, it was to be expected that there'd be some good old fashioned brotherly jabs in Will's toast. (Harry also joked to reporters that he'd got down on one knee to ask his brother to be best man, so...)

There Was an After-After Party

According to The Daily Mail, many guests traveled back to London after the Windsor festivities ended last night to continue the party at one of Harry's favorite spots, Chiltern Firehouse in Marylebone.

James Corden Played MC

James Corden apparently didn't take a break from his late-night hosting duties last night and took on the role of entertainer and host for the evening at Frogmore House.

Prince Harry Gave a Cheesy Intro for Sir Elton John

"Can anyone play the piano?" Harry reportedly quipped before Sir Elton John performed a few of his hits. "Your Song," "Tiny Dancer," "Circle Of Life," and "I'm Still Standing," were reportedly all among the songs the royal wedding guests were treated to yesterday.
