Harry and Meghan's reception

Tennis ace Serena Williams smashed her fellow Royal Wedding guests at beer pong in Harry and Meghan's outrageous reception.

The world number one tennis ace helped educate the British wedding guests on the boozy American game - while Idris Elba turned DJ, getting everyone dancing with 80s soul hits.

Chat-show superstar James Corden — who was compering the event — instigated an extraordinary dance-off which featured Prince Charles, Prince William and Harry.

The big names let their hair down on Saturday night, dressed to the nines for the reception to celebrate newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after they tied the knot at Windsor on Saturday.

The bride’s US heritage was marked with the boozy American university drinking game beer pong, where players throw table tennis balls into cups of beers which their opponents then have to neck.

The reception insider said: “Sere­na Williams played beer pong like it was tennis. Everyone had so much fun with it, there were even fireworks.”

And actor Idris Elba made sure everyone was out of their chairs with a playlist filled with soul classics, 1960s R&B and 1980s dance hits.

The royal couple chose I Wanna Dance With Somebody as their first dance at the fun-filled, early-hours wedding bash.

Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36 — now the Duke and ­Duchess of Sussex — let their hair down to the hit by Whitney Houston at Frogmore House, Windsor, where telly’s Corden hosted dinner and fireworks for 200 guests.

Our source revealed: “James ­Corden did his best to entertain and it went down an absolute treat.

"He even compered a dance-off between Harry, Charles and William.

“Everyone was laughing because it’s something no one expected.

"Meghan and her mum also joined in. Then everyone danced, which really kicked off the party.”

Charles and wife Camilla are thought to have left the party at Windsor’s Frogmore House before the celebrations became really wild.

The source said: “Prince Charles and Camilla headed off at about 10.30pm, leaving the younger ones to party.

"It started to close down at about midnight to 1am — then people headed off to London, although some stayed.”

Hollywood superstar George Clooney, 57, whisked Meghan away for a dance and also took Kate Middleton for a twirl, it was claimed.

Pork belly and Pol Roger champagne was served. There was festival-themed food, with burger nibbles and bespoke cocktails.

The source added: “There was a glass marquee for the dinner, festival-themed stalls and bars outside, with different themed drinks.

“There were burger bar stalls, whiskey bars, candy floss, games to play, acts performing and a DJ with a dance floor.

"There was a gin vermouth cocktail created for Charles and Camilla, who are both massive gin fans apparently.”
