    How we would love to have been a fly on the wall at Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall’s wedding.

    According to reports, Prince William rocked the royal wedding reception at the Palace of Holyrood House on Saturday evening, taking centre stage for a spot of karaoke. His song of choice? Bon Jovi’s living on a prayer.


    Onlookers say the future King ‘really let his hair down,’ during the soft rock classic, and had the rest of the party on their feet in no time, with Kate Middleton clapping along at the front. 

    William really let his hair down – he was the life and soul of the party, even compared to Mike’s rugby mates,’ one insider told the Mirror. 

    ‘It’s pretty daunting to get up in front of all those people but he was really in the mood, posing with the microphone and dancing as he sang.

    ‘He had the personality to carry it off. Kate stood a few yards away grinning, cheering, and clapping along.’

    After a sit down meal of delicious venison, seafood and champagne in the Scottish palace’s pretty quadrangle it’s thought the Queen and Prince Phillip made their exit, leaving Zara and her new hubby to get the party started with an Abba medley.

    Many other guests at the rocking royal wedding party – which included – Prince Harry, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and a host of Mike’s rugby teammates – also took a turn on the stage.

    And it seems guests partied away well into the night, with the royal newlyweds making it right through until dawn.

    ‘Zara and Mike didn’t even make it to bed,’ the insider added. ‘They seemed to be enjoying themselves too much to notice how late it had got.’

    Pictures of the smiling pair emerging after the almighty wedding party surfaced yesterday, with royal guests filing out to make their way home.
