The world stopped early on Saturday morning. Well, at least for those of us who were awake. Harry and Meghan got married and became the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, although everyone will continue to call them the Prince and Princess, just because that’s more fun.

Harlow has been very interested in the Royal Wedding. She asked me lots of questions, recorded a special edition of Harlow’s News (see bottom of this post) and even put on a headband to wear to school today that is strikingly similar to one of those fascinators that all the fancy Brits were sporting.

The wedding was beautiful and well-done and made most of the world shed a few happy tears. There really wasn’t much to make fun… but as always, the internet found a way. I hopped on the bandwagon too, because when you can’t make fun of the childless newly married couple fresh out of the gate, you can always make fun of the seasoned parents who are dragging their kids along and praying nobody wipes their cocktail sauce covered fingers on their party clothes. I’m talking to you— Will and Kate!

Here are a few of my favorite Royal Wedding tweets and memes about the kids involved and the parents who needed them on their absolute best behavior:

Thank you, Harry and Meghan! With everything that was going on in the world, it was a gift to have a bit of distraction for a day.
