will "never" forget performing at the royal wedding reception.

The "Starry Eyed" hitmaker was asked by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to sing at their post-wedding party at Buckingham Palace on Friday, April 29 and after serenading the 300 guests with a selection of her hits and clovers of classic tracks - including 's "Your Song", which was the couple's first dance - she admits she was "honored" to have been involved.

She said, "It was an amazing honour to be asked by Kate and William to perform at their party. The atmosphere was incredible and it is a night I'll never forget!"

While members of the royal family, including Queen Elizabeth and William's father Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, left before midnight, the celebrations continued until 2am for younger revelers at an afterparty thrown by best man Prince Harry.

According to reports, the final song played was 's "Sex on Fire", after Prince Harry promised partygoers one final song before they had to leave.

Introducing the song, he told guests, "This has been a great night but please respect the family and those upstairs when you leave. And don't wake up the neighbors.

"OK, here's one more song but promise you will leave after. This one is dedicated to my brother."

Guests at Harry's afterparty were treated to potent Crack Baby cocktails, which contain vodka, passion fruit, raspberry liqueur and champagne, and tucked into snacks including popcorn and Haribo sweets.

Earlier in the day, guests at the more formal wedding reception - who were seated at tables named after towns and cities close to the hearts of the bride and groom - were served a three-course meal cooked by Prince Charles' favorite chef Anton Mossiman.

He served crab layered with fresh langoustine, followed by herb-stuffed lamb, then a trio of desserts, chocolate mousse, honeycomb ice cream and sherry trifle.
