Cameras may have stopped rolling after St George's Chapel closed its doors on Saturday, but the Royal Wedding celebrations continued late into the night.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle hosted a private reception for 200 of their closest friends and family.

After their nuptials, carriage procession and lunchtime reception, the newlyweds then drove through the Windsor estate in a Jaguar E-type as they made their way to Frogmore House, where they had their first dance as a married couple.

But what song did they choose?

According to The Telegraph, Harry and Markle chose Whitney Houston's 1987 classic 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)' for the  big moment.

The pop anthem had been rumoured to be the song of choice for a few weeks.

Speaking to Lifestyle Magazine in 2016, Meghan referred to it as her "happy song".

Meanwhile, Sir Elton John also performed a couple of his classic hits for the royal couple and 600 guests at St George's Hall.

Meghan changed into a Stella McCartney-designed dress for the evening reception, and she also wore Princess Diana's Asprey Aquamarine ring.

At 11pm, fireworks went off over the 17th century country house, while the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex partied with their guests.
