Millions watched as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle officially married Saturday morning. It was a big day for the British royal family and England alike. And when the official ceremony was over, tens of thousands of people lined up to see the newly married couple in their horse drawn carriage.

That's where the BBC comes in. One of the news organization's now-defunct television channels live-tweeted the entire wedding. One tweet, in particular, has garnered viral attention because it mocks President Donald Trump.

What happened?

The tweet compares the crowd for the after-wedding procession of the new royal couple with a distorted image of the crowd at Trump's inauguration.

The tweet's caption � "just saying ¯\_(�)_/¯" � is an implied jab at Trump, who was very concerned with reports of the crowd size at his inauguration. So much so that he had his first press secretary, Sean Spicer, defend the crowd size during his first press briefing in the West Wing.

What was the reaction?

Most on Twitter found the tweet and mockery pleasing, especially Americans:

Others didn't agree.
