With the royal wedding edging ever closer, more and more is being revealed about what we can expect from the big day. We know that 2.640 members of the public have been invited to watch the ceremony, where they’re having their mini-moon and that Meghan's dress will most likely cost less than Kate's. While we will eventually find out the all-important answer to who is designing her dress on May 19th, we won’t be privy to the entire day’s events. More specifically, we won’t get to watch the best part of any wedding, where everyone gets drunk, one of the best men makes a terrible toast and someone inevitably makes a fool of themselves on the dancefloor, aka the reception, which is being held at Frogmore House, just half a mile from Windsor Castle.
While we won’t get to see it ourselves, that hasn't stopped insiders from teasing out information about what exactly we should expect from the big royal party. One all-important revelation is that the Queen may be skipping part of the reception. According to royal expert Katie Nicholl, while the queen I set to be a very important part of the day, of course, she won’t be on the dance floor.
Nicholl revealed all to Entertainment Tonight, where she explained that despite speculation the Queen was very forceful in the wedding plans, she’s actually quite laidback. Nicholl said:
‘I'm told from my sources at Windsor Castle that [Queen Elizabeth] is being very, very accommodating. She has said to the couple, “This is your wedding, this is your day. Plan it as you want it.” [This] is very generous because, don't forget, the queen is opening up her home.’

Apparently, it’s all thanks to her and Harry’s very close relationship. She continued:
‘Don't forget she's hugely close to her grandson. They have a very special relationship. She is thrilled to be seeing Harry settle down and finally marry,
‘She's going to want to be a very important part of that day and indeed she will.’
However, important as she may be, she won’t be dancing away when the party starts, with Nicholl making a particular dig at the Spice Girls performance. She finished:
‘But I think when it comes to the evening reception and certainly the party, if the Spice Girls are performing then, I don't think the queen's going to be on the dance floor,’
The Spice Girls were rumoured to be performing after Mel B told The Real that they were all invited, and when asked if they were performing went suspiciously quiet.
However, Mel C has since denied that they’re performing, claiming she hasn’t received an invite. So, maybe the Queen will end up on the dancefloor? After all, she does love having a boogie to ABBA.
