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.”

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?
Fergie turning up like “It’s Britney, bitch.”

Tom Hardy’s facial expression
Having shaved his head for his latest film role as Al Capone, Tom Hardy looked like the ultimate gangster wedding guest and Twitter took full advantage.
