The wedding of Prince Harry to Megan Markle was a beautiful spectacle. One that actually looked a lot more fun than the previously televised wedding of Prince William to Duchess Kate.
But who had the most fun?
Perhaps the BBC. The sub-channel, BBC Three, spent that resplendent morning live-tweeting the wedding festivities, but paused for a moment to take the spotlight off Harry and Meghan Markle and shine it across the Atlantic toward… Donald Trump.
This, no doubt, would have pleased the president. He’s loved the spotlight since well before he became a reality star. But he may not have loved that, as huge crowds gathered along the route to Windsor Castle to celebrate the royal wedding, the online channel tweet side-by-side pictures of the still-gathering crowd lining the streets near Windsor Castle and Trump’s notoriously skimpy inauguration.
The caption reads, “Just saying.”

BBC Three’s twitter is historically much funnier than the primary BBC twitter account. Still, it’s nice that they took a moment to remind Donald Trump how he failed to MIGA (Make Inaugurations Great Again).
Further, Prince Harry is not direct heir to the throne and Windsor Castle was a quaint venue compared to, say, Westminster Abbey. So not only was Trump’s presidential inauguration attendance bested by a wedding — it was a wedding of a prince who is sixth in order of succession to the British throne.
It’s quite fortunate that Trump wasn’t invited to the wedding. Remember when he watched Bastille Day and then went on to demand a military parade?
Just imagine how gauche Donald and Melania’s televised “renewal of vows” would be.
