Prince William and Kate -- a.k.a. the just-married Duke and Duchess of Cambridge -- definitely got their party on at Buckingham Palace (hosted by his father Prince Charles) on Friday night.

Just 300 close friends and family of the newly-titled Duke, 28, and Duchess, 29, scored an invite to the intimate bash, where both the royal bride and her Maid of Honor Pippa Middleton stunned in gowns by Sarah Burton and Alice Temperley, respectively.

"The speeches were very emotional," one female guest told Us. Man of Honor Prince Harry's speech for this big brother was a highlight. According to another guest, frequent jokester Harry, 26, took pains not to embarrass his big brother. After thanking his father Prince Charles, stepmother Duchess Camilla and grandmother Queen Elizabeth, Harry paid touching tribute to their late mother, Princess Diana, who passed away at age 36 in 1997.

When the bash was officially over at 2 a.m., departing guests were given two chocolate cupcakes (housed in a plastic box) featuring Mario Testino's iconic shot of the happy couple on top. (The cupcakes were custom-made by James Middleton's Cake Kit Company.), Before boarding carriages off the palace grounds, the revelers enjoyed a spectacular fireworks display.

"We had a fantastic time!" one guest told Us. Click link below for more details.
