The most hilarious royal wedding memes to have graced the Internet
Millions of royal fans from across the globe tuned in to watch Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot on May 19 but they weren’t necessarily enthralled by the romantic vows.
In true millennial fashion, eagle-eyed viewers took to social media in a bid to outdo one and other with the wittiest memes.
From Prince George’s newfound love of My Chemical Romance to Sarah Ferguson’s major comeback, these were the best royal wedding memes to grace the Internet over the weekend.
When you invite your ex to the wedding
It was to be expected that the Internet would thrive on the fact that Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, was in attendance.
In the most meme-worthy fashion, live coverage caught her off-guard with social media users quick off the mark to call out her ‘saltiness’.

When Prince George was over the wedding five minutes in
Ever since Princess Charlotte’s adorable wave at St Mary’s Hospital last month, Prince George has been in his sister’s shadow. But it turns out, he couldn’t care less.

There was obviously a ‘Suits’ reference…
It couldn’t be Meghan’s wedding without a ‘Suits’ reference and former co-star, Rick Hoffman, took it for the team. The actor – famed for playing Louis Litt on the hit series – was mocked for his strange facial expressions throughout the ceremony.
To put rumours to rest, he took to Twitter to explain: “To answer any questions about the weird face that was made at the wedding. Imagine sitting next to people to your right and not knowing which person it was that has halitosis.”

The Queen’s green screen aesthetic
The Queen is renowned for her penchant for co-ords but didn’t quite avoid the memes this time around.
Look, if The Queen didn’t want this to happen then maybe she shouldn’t have come to the #RoyalWedding dressed as a green screen pic.twitter.com/efTrxkfh7S

When Amal Clooney brought Curious George to the wedding
We initially believed that the A-list couple delivered on the fashion front but one user made a ‘Curious George’ reference and now there’s no going back.

Pippa Middleton’s Arizona Green Tea-inspired dress
Pippa Middleton isn’t one to make a fashion faux-pas but the Internet was quick to note that her £495 dress by The Fold resembled a can of Arizona Iced Tea. Cue the shade…

When Fergie made the ultimate comeback
Sarah Ferguson was famously snubbed at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s 2011 nuptials so it was only fair that she stole the spotlight at Harry and Meghan’s big day, right?
