William reportedly stopped the dance early so Goulding could perform her upbeat single "Starry Eyed" off her album "Lights," a favorite of the royal couple's.

The DJ played a mix of classic rock and popular music throughout the night that included Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" and Alicia Keys' "Empire State of Mind." Kings of Leon's "Sex on Fire" was the last dance of the night.

According to London's News of the World, William's brother, Prince Harry, gave a toast later in the evening, during which he moved his brother's new bride to tears by saying he loved and cherished her as a sister.
