Royal Wedding 2018: Everyone Thinks The Queen Looked Like Dipsy As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Got Hitched
A lot happened at today's royal wedding, which saw Prince Harry marry American actress Meghan Markle in a ceremony that turned out to be slightly less traditional than we thought it'd be.
For starters, Bishop Michael Curry came in and blew the roof off St George's Chapel in Windsor with a passionate and energetic speech. Yeah, two words you wouldn't normally associate with a royal wedding in Britain. Absolute hero.
Then the gospel choir were rolled out to sing 'Stand By Me', which also helped stir up all the emotions that the British public never knew they had.
But it wasn't just our Stateside pals bringing the entertainment - our very own Queen Elizabeth also provided a bit of a spectacle, dressed head to toe in lime green.
Which reminds ALL Brits of one very iconic Teletubbies character:

Someone else on Twitter likened her to a popular sweet, writing: "Pastor went on a mad one and the Queen looked like a green skittle."
Another person referred to it as 'margarita green', while another said the shade was actually 'Tennis ball green'.
I mean, it was a very bright shade of green - but I guess when you're the Queen you can literally do whatever you want.
According to Time, there's a perfectly good (and fairly obvious) reason for her choice of attire, and that's that she simply needs to stand out from the masses.
In the documentary, The Queen at 90, her daughter-in-law, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, explained: "She needs to stand out for people to be able to say 'I saw the Queen'.
"Don't forget that when she turns up somewhere, the crowds are two, three, four, 10, 15 deep, and someone wants to be able to say they saw a bit of the Queen's hat as she went past."
If only Phil had dusted off his bright orange suit, then they could've rocked up as a pair of Tic Tacs. If only, eh?
