This weekend, across the globe, millions of people tuned in to watch Prince Harry marry Meghan Markle, but most of those watching probably missed one secret detail.
Did you notice it? Well if you missed it, don’t worry, this royal easter egg was pretty well concealed.
Apparently, the secret was on the E-type Jaguar, which took Harry and Meghan to their posh evening do at Frogmore House, following the ceremony.
Specifically, it was hidden in the registration, 190518, which eagle-eyed readers will immediately notice was the date and therefore Harry and Meghan’s wedding anniversary.
Apparently, the after party was ‘festival themed’ and Harry asked for the bar to be Tiki themed with a steel band welcoming guests as they arrived, reports the Mirror.
Guests were reportedly offered South African wagyu beef, iced beers, champagne, and there was even an ice luge filled with vodka, in the style of Mahiki – the groom’s favourite London nightclub. I’m sure the Queen approved!
The event was compered by lovable funnyman, James Corden and the groom’s father, Prince Charles, made a speech about his ‘darling old Harry’ which apparently reduced the room to tears.
Only 200 of the 600 guests who were invited to the ceremony were invited to the evening do, with the likes of Pippa Middleton and Duchess Sarah Ferguson failing to make the cut.
Guests were also barred from making jokes about Harry’s playboy reputation, which makes sense considering some of the things the young prince has got up to in the past.
Dressing as a Nazi, stripping off with girls in Las Vegas and falling out of every club in London – it’s fair to say Harry’s lived an eventful life – but that’s all changed in recent years.
The sixth in line for the throne, has matured over the years, serving in Afghanistan and launching the Invictus Games.
He’s even given patronage to several charities including the HALO Trust, the London Marathon Charitable Trust, and Walking With The Wounded.
Harry’s antics have made him popular with the public but his new maturity has cemented his place in the British public’s heart and made him one of the more relatable members of the Royal Family.
Harry and Meghan were pronounced husband and wife at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle in front of family and friends including the Beckhams, the Clooneys and the cast of Suits.
Dean of Windsor, David Conner, officiated the ceremony, and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, performed the vows.
Viewers were also treated to a rousing sermon from the Reverend Michael Curry, of the Episcopal Church in the United States, who gave a moving speech about love.
After the ceremony, Prince Harry and Meghan shared their first public kiss as husband and wife on the steps of St. George’s Chapel.

More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
