Officials anticipated a crowd of around 100,000 would gather for the royal wedding — and by the looks of it, the actual numbers are yuge.
People from all around the world descended on Windsor on Saturday to celebrate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s nuptials. While a lucky few members of the public actually scored an invitation to St. George’s Chapel, most stood behind barricades set up along a walkway known as the Long Walk. The street is approximately 2.6 miles long, running from the castle’s gates to the edge of the grounds, and royal fans lined up waiting to catch a glimpse of the bride and groom.
When aerial shots of the road were released, Twitter couldn’t help but compare how many individuals showed up to watch a wedding, with the crowd at President Trump’s inauguration.
@BBCThree was seemingly the first to crack the joke, when the handle tweeted out two shots comparing the crowds.
