Let the royal wedding festivities continue!
The newly minted Duke and Duchess of Sussex captured the world's attention during an epic royal wedding ceremony inside St. George's Chapal in Windsor Castle. Every detail put into the nuptials gave us a modern day fairy tale wedding that dreams are made of.
After walking down the aisle and attending a more formal lunchtime reception with Queen Elizabeth II, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry changed out of their bridal attire into black tie ensembles to party the night away at their second, more intimate reception with family and friends.
The former "Suits" actress slipped out of her simple, yet classically gorgeous bridal gown created by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy gown into a stunning bespoke Stella McCartney high neck lily white gown in silk crepe, serving up Hollywood glamour. She paired the dress with Aquazurra heels painted with a baby blue sole for her “something blue." She used a different hair stylist, George Norwood, for her evening look.
Prince Harry escorted his beautiful bride out of Windsor Castle to head out for a reception hosted by his father Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, at Frogmore House.
The happy couple hopped into a silver blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero. And Prince Harry made sure to help his wife get her dress into the vehicle. This car was originally manufactured in 1968, and has since been converted to electric power, according to Kensington Palace.
The car featured a special touch too. The license plate reads "E190518," which is today's date. Aww!
See that rock?
For another tribute to Princess Diana, Meghan wore an aquamarine ring that once belonged to Harry's mother, Princess Diana, to the reception. About 200 of Meghan and Harry's closest family members and friends were in attendance.
Watch the couple take off below:

The couple joined 200 of their closest family and friends at Frogmore House for the real post-wedding turn up. It's reported the couple chose Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" as the opening track to kick off the reception.
Guests were treated to a sit-down dinner as Meghan and Harry danced to a slow song for their first dance together as husband and wife. It's reported songs from 1960s R&B to the dance hits of the 1980s were played throughout the night. And guess who hopped in the DJ booth?
Idris Elba! Of course.
The night featured fireworks to celebrate the new union and a special drink inspired by the couple. Guests enjoyed "When Harry Met Meghan" cockstails, which featured ginger and rum, an apparent tribute to Harry's red hair. Cute.
Prince Harry stood before their loved ones and gave a speech where he said he and his wife make a "great team" and expressed how happy he is that he found her.
“I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you," he said to Meghan.
With all of the drama surrounding her dad not being able to walk her down the aisle, Prince Harry praised Meghan for “navigating everything with such grace."
It's also reported Meghan gave a speech as well, thanking the Royal Family for "welcoming" her.
During the first reception, Elton John gave a toast to the couple, performing four songs inside St. George's Hall.
As we all saw, Prince Harry's face lit up when he first saw Meghan in her Givenchy wedding gown. During the lunchtime reception, Prince Harry found designer Clare Waight Keller to thank her for creating such a stunning gown.
“He came straight up to me and said, ‘Oh my God, thank you. She looks absolutely stunning,’ ” Waight Keller told reporters Sunday in Windsor. “I think everybody saw on television he was just absolutely in awe. I think she looked incredible.”
As for some of the guests celebrating the married couple's royal love...
Meghan's friend Serena Williams returned for more fierce, sophisticated style. After wowing in a blush Versace dress, the tennis superstar changed into a floral Valentino gown paired with a bold BVLGARI necklace. Her hubby Alexis Ohanian was still right by her side.
Another stunna on the scene....
Meghan's good friend Priyanka Chopra also stepped out for the post-royal wedding festivities, looking drop dead gorgeous in Dior. Perfection.
Congrats again to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!
