...vodka ice luges included.
You can take the man out of the party, but you can’t take the party out of the man — even if that man happens to be Prince Harry.
Prince Harry may be planning a very high-class royal wedding with his future wife Meghan Markle, but, according to reports, the one-time party prince is also planning an after-party to end all after-parties.
According to the Mirror, Prince Harry is planning a “carnival and festival-themed” wedding after-party that will come complete with a steel drum band, vodka-filled ice luges, chilled beers, South African Wagyu beef, and frozen tropical cocktails.
“Both Harry and Meghan love a party and have a wild side – and the reception will be no different,” a source told the Daily Star. “Safaris and festival fever are the themes being enveloped into their day – embracing everything the pair love. Both of them are music and festival lovers, so they said they wanted a festival and carnival vibe at the evening do. It might be a royal wedding, but neither Harry or Meghan are stuffy people and the last thing they want is their nuptials to be."
Though this alleged party plan is not incredibly surprising – considering Prince Harry has a long history with wild celebrations – what is a bit perplexing is the fact that Prince Charles is reportedly footing the bill for the bash.
The Mirror claims Prince Charles will play host for the private evening event at Frogmore House, which sits on the grounds of Windsor Castle. The party will reportedly only be for Harry and Meghan’s “inner circle."
The after-party will mark the couple’s second reception of the day, with the first formal reception being hosted by the Queen.
At the cooler, younger bash, Harry’s friends will reportedly be behind the bar serving drinks to guests. Those drinks, the Mirror said, will include “apache shooters” and “frozen strawberry sparkles.”
This event is where the Spice Girls are expected to perform. However, one insider told the Mirror the likes of Coldplay and Ed Sheeran could also perform a song or two.
Look, we love the Queen, but this second party is certainly where all the fun seems to be going down. Hopefully someone will sneak in a phone and snap an Instagram photo or two so we can live vicariously through their fun.
