The royal lunch reception was hosted by Queen Elizabeth II at St. George’s Hall at Windsor Castle. The newlywed and their guest feasted, and laughed, and cried.
According to People, Prince of Wales, gave a heartfelt speech. And apparently because of it, Prince Harry got very emotional. His father, Prince Charles talked about “how proud” he was of the man his son had “grown into.”
“He ended it calling him, ‘My darling old Harry, I’m so happy for you,’ which was very sweet,” and added, “how he’s really happy for them both.”
Also Prince Harry, the groom, gave a speech and thanked everyone for coming. “He did all the ‘Thank you’s,’” before getting lots of cheers by saying, “my wife and I.” OMG, MY WIFE!!!
