Prince Harry and Meghan Markle headed to their evening reception in an icy blue vintage Jaguar.

As was expected, both the bride and the groom changed for the party. Prince Harry is now wearing a tuxedo, and Meghan has chosen a second bridal gown, this one by designer Stella McCartney.

"The Bride's evening dress is designed by Stella McCartney and is a bespoke lily white high neck gown made of silk crepe," reads a statement from Kensington Palace. "The Bride is wearing shoes from Aquazurra made in silky satin, with nude mesh, with soles painted in baby blue.”

Her hair, an up-do, was styled by George Northwood.

The choice of Stella McCartney is significant, of course, because not only is she a British designer, but her mother, the late Linda McCartney was also American.

Markle's dress was also reminiscent of a gown Princess Diana wore.

That may not have been intentional—but another nod to Diana certainly was. Meghan was wearing the Princess of Wales's aquamarine ring, thought to be a gift from Prince Harry.

While all 600 guests who attended this morning's wedding ceremony were invited to the afternoon reception, which was hosted by the Queen at Windsor Castle, a more select group of Prince Harry and Meghan's 200 closest friends will attend the evening reception.

The event, which will take place at Frogmore House in Home Park, was hosted by the Prince of Wales, and was expected to be a much less formal affair. But don't get your hopes up for photos of the newlyweds out on the dance floor.

Guests reportedly received the directive to turn over their cell phones and cameras before entering the reception.

"All guests will be asked to surrender mobile telephones… and any devices used for image capture," reads "critical guidance" guests received, according to the Mail on Sunday.
