We got to see every little second of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding ceremony, with everything from the bride’s arrival to that special first kiss caught on camera.
But after their carriage ride around the town the newlyweds and their friends and family got to enjoy a far more private afternoon of celebrations.
The couple’s first reception was a lunchtime do organised by the Queen at St George’s Hall and after a quick outfit change, everyone headed over to Prince Charles’s evening party.
The carnival-themed event was very different to the rest of the day, and the invitations were very different to the official ones for the ceremony.
Prince Harry’s pal Nacho Figueras shared a photo of the invitation on his Instagram account.
The professional polo-player has since deleted the photo, which also shows his outfit for the evening celebrations.
The white or cream invitation says: "M & H. Saturday, May 19 2018 Frogmore House.
"Information for the evening ceremony."
There’s also a sweet sketch of Frogmore House.
The invitation is very different to the formal invite send to people attending the ceremony at St George’s Chapel earlier in the day.
He also shared a photo of the couple on their wedding day with the caption: "My dear friend, I am so happy for you.
"You deserve nothing but the best and I wish you both the happiest of lives.
"Thank you for making us part of this very special day. Best part yet to come!"
Harry and Meghan invited more than 200 family and friends to the evening reception, which was organised and paid for by Prince Charles.
They drove to the event in a blue E-type Jaguar Concept Zero with the registration plate E190518 – their wedding date.
The new Duchess of Sussex changed into a bespoke lily white high neck gown made of silk crepe, designed by Stella McCartney.
Prince Harry gave an emotional speech at the evening reception, in which he praised his new wife and paid tribute to her mum. You can read more about his speech here .
