It didn’t matter that it was early Saturday morning, and it surely didn’t matter what people’s occupations were. If your Twitter timeline on Saturday wasn’t filled with commentary about Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle—aka as the #RoyalWedding—you clearly don’t follow enough people on the social media site.

Sports writers weighed in on the moment. Comedians made jokes. Professional athletes had their say.

It apparently didn’t matter that America was still mourning the Santa Fe shooting or that Donald Trump is still feuding with the FBI or that the LGBTQ community still is facing harassment every day. For a few hours on Saturday morning, the world stopped and watched Harry marry Megan.

And they made their feelings known on Twitter. Here are the 17 best Twitter reactions we found.

And people adored these subversive headlines.

As well as this subtweet.

In the end, it was two people getting married, and hundreds of millions of people watched. No matter whether you think the massive coverage of the event was ridiculous or whether the nuptials were the most romantic moment ever, there’s little doubt that there’s nothing finer than a spring wedding to make all your worries disappear for a few hours.
