The BBC is using the royal wedding to mock Donald Trump

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally tied the knot today. Hurrah!

The marriage of the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex was watched by millions around the world and cheered on by the thousands who flocked to Windsor to see the ceremony.

Images of the public stretched on for miles on the road that led up to Windsor castle and it was quite a sight to behold.

When looking at that image, some clever person running the BBC Three Twitter noticed something familiar about that image.

Yes, that is an image of the crowds at Donald Trump's infamous inauguration in January 2017, which was apparently the "largest audience ever to witness an inauguration".

We can't be entirely sure but we're confident that there were more people at Harry and Meghan's wedding. Just a hunch.

This tweet from BBC Three has since gone viral and a lot of people are enjoying the subtle shade they are throwing on the president.

Even the dictionary took the opportunity to mock the POTUS.

And JK Rowling.

And Batman! (Kevin Conroy voiced Batman in the 90s animated series).

Not everyone was that impressed though.

Incidentally, in January Donald Trump confirmed that he had not been invited to the royal wedding.

It's unclear whether he was annoyed at this or not but you can guarantee that he won't be impressed should he see this tweet.
