While Meghan was noticably absent from Saturday's church service for Pippa Middleton and James Matthews, the Suits star was in attendance for the evening bash.

According to a report in The Sun, Prince Harry drove to London after the church nuptials to pick up Markle and drive her to the Middleton's family home in Berkshire for the evening celebrations.

However, according to The Telegraph, the pair were not sat together. An insider told the paper that Middleton had organised a strict seating plan which involved all couples being sat separately.

While it may sound unusual, it's becoming increasingly common for modern brides to mix up couples and encourage mingling between guests. We'd love to have been a fly on the wall on Meghan's table..

According to the report, Markle arrived arm in arm with her Royal boyfriend at the black tie 'do wearing a backless maroon gown.

The evening event took place in a 140ft glass marquee on the private Englefield estate. Middleton changed into her second dress of the day for the occasion- a floor-length v-neck gown with sparkle details - and the dancing went on into the early hours. Guests were treated to a saxophonist and DJ, a single malt whisky bar, photo booths and a light show that saw footage of the bride and groom beamed onto the back of ­Bucklebury Manor.

While the church ceremony was highly photographed, the couple were insitent that no pictures emerged of the evening party. Security was at an all time high and each guest had to send in photographs and produce a password before gaining entry.
