Wills does Bon Jovi at Zara's wedding

London - Britain's Prince William delighted guests at cousin Zara Phillips' wedding on Saturday by doing an impression of Jon Bon Jovi.

The future king was on fine form as he attended the nuptials of Zara and rugby player Mike Tindall at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh, Scotland over the weekend and really let his hair down at the reception at the nearby Palace of Holyroodhouse by singing classics by the rocker.

Fellow guest and Bath rugby player David Flatman, tweeted: "Can't say too much about the real royal wedding but I will reveal that Prince William does an uncanny Bon Jovi impression."

The reception, organised by "party planner to the stars" Peregrine Armstrong-Jones, was thought to run until 2am and was fuelled by champagne and vodka shots from a self-service machine.

Partying mood

Holyroodhouse – Queen Elizabeth's Scottish home - had been turned into a temporary nightclub with flashing lights for the party and the newlyweds were joined on the dance floor by lots of members of the royal family, although the queen and Prince Philip had gone home early.

An insider revealed to The Sun newspaper: "There was lots of booze on offer and guests were in a mood to party.

"The DJ and band kept saying, 'Make some noise' and guests responded with cheers.

"It wasn't your typical royal wedding reception. There was the rugby set and the horsey set. Both know how to enjoy themselves."

During the ceremony, William and his brother Prince Harry stood up and gave a reading to the congregation – an extract from classic children's book, The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams.
