Royal Wedding 2018: The Queen Doesn't Join In With The National Anthem, For Obvious Reasons

Royal Wedding 2018: The Queen Doesn't Join In With The National Anthem, For Obvious Reasons

It's highly likely that you're already aware there was a royal wedding earlier today.

Prince Harry (who is actually called Henry, by the way) married US actress Meghan Markle at St George's Chapel, Windsor earlier today in a mega ceremony that was watched by millions. Following the exchanging of vows, the whole congregation stood to sing the national anthem - you know, the British national anthem, 'God Save the Queen'.

Everyone joined in, everyone except the Queen, because it turns out that when the song is about you, you don't have to. It's a bit like how you wouldn't sing 'Happy Birthday' to yourself, I guess.

It did not go unnoticed on Twitter:

Others pointed out that after 65 long years, she must be bloody sick of the song by now, which is a very fair point.

The ceremony was broadcast live around the globe, but showing that nothing is sacred, people have already been taking the piss out of it on social media.

We've had Harry's ex Chelsy Davy turned into a meme, Harry 'telling his bride-to-be he's 'shitting it' and Her Majesty the Queen compared to Dipsy from the Teletubbies. Ah, it's good to be British, isn't it?

Now the formal part is over, the royals and their guests are off to go and celebrate the union.

I can't help but think that after a few dry sherries Her Maj will be belting out 'God save the meeee' at the top of her voice until Prince Philip manages to drag her off home.

Either that or she'll be getting on the karaoke and screaming out the Sex Pistols' version at 3am. Do us proud, Liz.
