Meghan Markle debuted the dress earlier today when she arrived at St. George’s Chapel for her wedding ceremony to Prince Harry. But that’s not the only gown Markle is wearing for the day. She just showed her second evening dress—Stella McCartney this time—as she left for Frogmore House to attend the more intimate, nighttime reception that Prince Charles is throwing for the couple.

The Palace announced the dress details: “The Bride’s evening dress is designed by Stella McCartney and is a bespoke lily white high neck gown made of silk crepe. The Bride is wearing shoes from Aquazurra made in silky satin, with nude mesh, with soles painted in baby blue.”

Prince Harry and Ms Markle are being met with a wall of cheering and flag-waving as the procession makes its way through the streets of Windsor.

The pair smiled and waved to well-wishers during the journey in the lunchtime sunshine.

Frogmore House is itself situated in the Frogmore Estate, 33 acres of private gardens within in the grounds of Windsor Castle, Berkshire.

The country house is a royal retreat and belongs to the monarchy.

The new Duke and Duchess of Sussex are enjoying a menu fit for a king — or at least a really big fan of cake and canapes — and listening to the tunes of Sir Elton John.

About 600 guests are attending the royal lunch reception hosted by Queen Elizabeth II at St. George’s Hall at Windsor Castle for the wedding of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan. According to the palace, approximately 7,500 servings of food have been prepared by a team of 25 led by Royal Chef Mark Flanagan.

A more intimate sit-down dinner for 200 will be hosted by Prince Charles at Frogmore House on the Windsor Castle estate Saturday evening.

 John performed three songs at the lunch reception 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.)

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

For those who prefer their canapes on the sweeter side:

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

The extensive reception menu features hors d’oeuvres and appetizers passed by footmen and under butlers and served in small bowls for ease of eating while mingling:

  • Fricassee of free-range chicken with morel mushrooms and young leeks
  • Pea and mint risotto with pea shoots, truffle oil and Parmesan crisps
  • Ten-hour slow-roasted Windsor pork belly with apple compote and crackling

The cake, designed by Claire Ptak, was served at the lunch reception at St George’s Hall – the largest room at Windsor Castle – hosted by Queen Elizabeth II. The dessert features elderflower syrup made at the Queen’s home in Sandringham from the estate’s own elderflower trees, as well as a sponge cake created for the newlyweds.

The cake is filled with elderflower buttercream and Amalfi lemon curd, and topped with Swiss meringue buttercream and 150 fresh flowers, including peonies and roses.

The 600 guests invited to St George’s Chapel for the wedding were invited to the luncheon, which included the cast of Suits, Priyanka Chopra, Amal and George Clooney and Victoria and David Beckham. During the luncheon, Prince Charles, who escorted his 36-year-old daughter-in-law down the aisle, and Harry, 33, gave speeches.

While they do have some tastes in common, Harry “loves ribs and barbecue” and Meghan “is coming with healthy eating (views), so there could be a clash there,” McGrady says. However, he notes Harry lost about 10 pounds before the wedding, thanks to a diet under his bride’s guidance.

Also on tap: the cutting of the wedding cake, designed by Claire Ptak. The cake features elderflower syrup made at the Queen’s residence in Sandringham, as well as a light sponge cake, Amalfi lemon curd filling and elderflower buttercream.

Drinks being served include Pol Roger Brut Réserve Non-Vintage Champagne and a selection of wines and soft drinks. One specialty: an apple and elderflower mocktail, made with the same elderflower syrup that’s used in the cake, plus Sandringham Cox’s apple juice.
