Royal Wedding: Dinner Dance Details Revealed

Chris Jackson/Getty Images(LONDON) -- More details have surfaced regarding the post-royal wedding dinner dance.

After walking down the aisle at Westminster Abbey before 1,900 guests, the pageantry broadcast worldwide for millions of viewers April 29, William and Kate will let loose and boogie down to a 1980s-themed reception with close family and friends, London newspaper The Sun reports.

Special requests for '80s-tastic jams include hits from Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran and Culture Club. Princess Diana was a known admirer of Abba, and Kate has followed her lead by requesting the Swedish band's classic wedding-reception dance staples.

Prince Harry will set the tone for the party with his best man speech. Though the boys are incredibly close, Prince Harry plans to goad his big brother a bit. Harry has nearly completed his flight training on Apache gunships, a much faster plane than the Sea King search-and-rescue helicopter William co-pilots. Planning to use this difference in their military aviation careers, Harry will compare the brothers to the fable of the tortoise and the hare.

The next morning, the newlyweds will depart on a two-week honeymoon. But not before a night spent laughing, dancing and celebrating their love at the £75,000 ($88,000) bash thrown by Prince Charles.
