‘SNL’ spoofs the Royal Wedding reception, and it’s majestically hilarious


With the world still recovering from the majesty of the Royal Wedding, Saturday Night Live took us behind the scenes of the wedding reception hosted by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to show us exactly what we missed.

As one would expect from a royal family, party Kool & the Gang’s “Celebration” was bumping in the background, as Prince Harry, played by Mikey Day, encounters a tipsy Princess Kate, a boring Prince Charles, and a speechless Queen Elizabeth II, who’s being told by Meghan’s great uncle that she must watch Netflix’s The Crown.

Said Meghan Markle’s relative: “They make her look like a bitch on that show. Girl, they’ve done you dirty.”

Prince Harry also makes fun of Prince William’s baldness before the older brother shows off his twerking skills, and Prince Harry runs into Elton John singing some of his biggest hits. It’s enough to make you wish you had scored a reception invite yourself.
