Here comes the bride, ladies and gentlemen ...

... for the second time in just a few hours!

Royal Party Time

Early Saturday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married and proceeded to embark around London in a horse and carriage.

Then it was time for a second, equally-anticipated Saturday evening event, a special reception in the newlyweds' honor.

It was hosted by his father, Prince Charles, and cameras caught the lovebirds as they arrived for a wild night of celebration.

Harry looked perfectly handsome in his tuxedo, of course.

But all eyes were on Markle, who changed out of her Givenchy wedding dress and into a smoking hot and sleek white gown.

After You, Wife

This one was designed by Stella McCartney and it featured a bespoke, lily white high neck and was made of silk crepe.

Markle also donned matching white pumps from Aquazurra made in silky satin, with nude mesh and baby blue soles.

She looked simply gorgeous.

Back in 2011, both Prince William and Kate Middleton also changed outfits for the night-time portion of their big day.

Elsewhere, keen eyes spotted a somewhat subtle tribute to Princess Diana, Harry's mother, as part of Markle's look:

She actually wore Princess Diana’s aquamarine ring on her right hand for this evening, a fact that photographers and fans didn't miss.

It was visible while she waved at everyone in the passenger's seat of the silver-blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero Harry was driving.

Diana famously wore the emerald cut Aquamarine beauty to an auction of her own clothes at Christie’s in 1997, the same year she passed away.

You can see the accessory pretty clearly in the image above.

For those who missed the Royal Wedding, Kensington Palace made official Harry and his wife's new titles via the following statement:

Royal Bride and Groom

"The Queen has today been pleased to confer a Dukedom on Prince Henry of Wales."

"His titles will be Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel."

"Prince Harry thus becomes His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, and Ms. Meghan Markle on marriage will become Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex."

The couple also kissed for the first time as husband and wife on the chapel steps, following a ceremony that lasted approximately one hour.

As for who attended and what everyone wore, see the gallery below!

And as for the vows that were uttered, they were traditional and moving, and we have them both for you below:

MARKLE: I Meghan, take you, Harry, to be my husband, to have and to hold from this day forward.

For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God's holy law.

In the presence of God I make this vow.

HARRYI Harry, take you, Meghan, to be my wife, to have and to hold from this day forward.
