The royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was a magnificent affair, but so was the reception thereafter.

Guests were able to rest and change before the start of the evening celebrations following the lunchtime reception in the castle’s medieval St George’s Hall hosted by the Queen. The closest friends of the newlyweds were among those in attendance including Canadian stylist Jessica Mulroney and other confidantes such as Benita Litt and designer Misha Nonoo.

The 17th century royal residence stands about half a mile south of Windsor Castle in Windsor Home Park. It offers the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex the privacy to celebrate their marriage away for the cameras.

The name Frogmore is derived from the frogs which have always lived in the low lying marshy area. It was built in around 1680 by Charles II’s architect and in 1923, the Queen’s parents – the future George VI and Queen Elizabeth – spent part of their honeymoon there. It is only open for people to view on three ticketed charity open days a year, as well to pre-booked groups in August.
