How Oprah, Ava DuVernay and Reese Witherspoon Celebrate the Royal Wedding

Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle were married Saturday morning at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, Berkshire and though the wedding included attendees from Hollywood, even more took to social media to express their congratulations to the couple and delight at the nuptials.

Ava DuVernay acknowledged Oprah Winfrey’s presence at the ceremony, writing, “Queens recognize Queens.”

Leslie Jones kept it short and appreciative: “Yaaaas!!”

Soccer star David Beckham, who was present at the ceremony, posted to Instagram that “watching Harry as happy as he was makes us all proud of the man and person he has always been.”

Markle’s “Suits” co-star Patrick Adams joked on Instagram that “she might not actually be out getting milk” alongside an image of headlines about the wedding.

Mark Hamill posted some photos from his meeting with the royal brothers Prince Harry and William with his apologies for not attending the wedding — his invitation was “mistakenly mixed in w/fan mail.”

Ellen DeGeneres jokingly asked if she missed anything this morning, but then added “Just Kidding. I had a wonderful morning.”

Reese Witherspoon posted that she loves weddings and wrote, “This moment is everything.”

Shiri Appleby tuned into the Royal Wedding and said she’d been “parked on her couch” since 3 a.m.

“Suits” creator and executive producer Aaron Korsch released a statement wishing Markle and Prince Harry well:

I never imagined I would attend an event of this magnitude in my lifetime. It was beautiful, moving, historic, magical and a thousand other words that elude me at the moment. I’m so happy Meghan and Harry found each other and found love and that I was able to share in their relationship in a small way along with my wife and our Suits family.

Meghan and Harry I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, I wish you both a lifetime of happiness. And I believe the world is going to be a much brighter place for the two of you having found each other.

Love, Aaron

I love this picture. ❤️ congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex! ❤️
