Afterwards the wedding party were to enjoy a feast of traditional Rajasthani delicacies at the impressive Meherangarh Fort overlooking the city.

On the eve of the Hindu marriage, the couple held a "sangeet", a traditional night of music, at the Nagaur Fort 90 miles outside the city where Elizabeth had her hands and feet decorated with intricate henna designs.
