The London-born actor, known under his DJ name, “DJ Big Driis” (also, “Big Driis the Londoner”), kept the 200 attendees at Frogmore House reception dancing the night away with a playlist of R&B hits and '80s classics.

It is being reported that the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex opted to have the late Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” as their opening number.

According to Us Weekly, a source confirmed that the new Dutchess Meghan hit the dance floor with her girlfriends dancing to Luther Vandross “Never Too Much.”

After hours of dancing and dinner, the big day had a fairytale ending with fireworks.

Congratulations to the adorable couple!
