Prince Harry gave Glastonbury the royal seal of approval by partying until the early hours of the morning, festival organiser Michael Eavis said today.
The prince was spotted backstage watching The Rolling Stones headline the Pyramid Stage last night and also enjoyed music at the Park and John Peel stages in yesterday's sunshine with girlfriend Cressida Bonas.
"I recommended that he should go on into the night, because the nightlife is what Glastonbury is all about," said Eavis.
"At three o'clock in the afternoon, you don't get it.
"I told him to get his taxi driver to come back at five o'clock in the morning and do you know what? He lasted until four in the morning."
Glastonbury's founder has said this year's festival was "without a shadow of a doubt" the best yet. Here are the highlights in pictures.
