Black Twitter's Reactions to the Royal Wedding are Priceless
"When you're about to throw some seasoning on the proceedings."
The Royal Wedding happened this morning at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in England, where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle solidified their union with a grand ceremony surrounded by friends, family and loved ones.
Around 600 guests were in attendance for the affair, including Oprah Winfrey, Idris Elba and Serena Williams just to name a few.
Markle is now the first melanin-possessing person to become part of the British royal family, as her official title is now Duchess of Sussex.
The entire event was streamed live on Twitter, and of course the internet had quite a lot to say about it.
Folks have been sharing their commentary all morning, with many on Twitter highlighting some of the ceremony's "blackest" moments, and sharing funny quips about pretending not to care about the wedding, but watching anyway.
Read on to see some of the funniest, cutest and most outrageous reactions to the Royal Wedding that we've come across so far from Black twitter:
