Royal wedding woos Twitter: Best social media moments from Prince Harry’s and Meghan Markle’s ceremony


As Meghan Markle and Prince Harry exchanged vows and rings during the royal wedding, Twitter celebrated the best social media moments.

#RoyalWedding trended on Twitter even before Meghan Markle and Prince Harry entered the chapel for their ceremony. For those who feel that unless Twitter acknowledges it, it didn’t really happen, the social media platform did justice to the royal bride and groom, celebrating everything from Meghan’s and Harry’s kiss to their carriage ride. Read on for some of the best social media moments from Markle’s and her prince’s royal wedding.

Twitter went wild for Meghan’s royal wedding dress. The Givenchy gown earned praise from social media fashion watchers such as “stunning elegance” and “a masterpiece!”

When Prince Harry pulled back Meghan Markle’s veil at the altar

Really? You had to get us crying so early in the ceremony? One of the sweetest moments took place when Prince Harry very gently and very carefully lifted Meghan’s veil from her face. Can we put a video of this next to “Romance” in a virtual dictionary? Twitter went wild with “likes” for the sweet scene.

Leading up to the wedding, expectations clashed as to whether Harry and Meghan would kiss in front of the TV cameras and onlookers. The BBC snagged the answer, sharing the vision with Twitter.

“THE KISS!” summed up the usually restrained network on social media.

Prince Harry’s romantic gesture just melted our hearts

You know the theory that the bride and her family are the ones who see to all the romantic gestures before, during, and after a wedding? It turns out that Prince Harry was so determined to contribute in every way to the ceremony that he (wait for it…) carefully picked flowers from a garden that he’s growing with Meghan, putting those flowers into her bridal bouquet. Heart. Melting. Moment.
