Yesterday, the world watched (some of us very, very early) as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made things official in Windsor, England. The ceremony was beautiful, of course, but afterwards, the cameras stopped rolling and the royals and their lucky guests got a chance to celebrate in private. The most exclusive event of the day was the evening reception at Frogmore House, hosted by Prince Charles.

Since we commoners weren't allowed in, the people at Saturday Night Live took it upon themselves to give us a peek inside. In the clip, Prince Harry (played by Mikey Day) speaks directly to the camera, hosting a tour of the reception for the wedding video.

Several members of the "royal family" make appearances-an austere Prince Charles, a drunk-off-one-glass-of-champagne Kate Middleton, and Prince William, leaning hard into the role of dorky new dad. The best family moment comes when Harry approaches his grandma, Queen Elizabeth (Kate McKinnon, in queenly lime green), who is having an uncomfortable conversation with one of Meghan Markle's relatives (played by Kenan Thompson).

“She has got to start watching The Crown because they make her look like a b*tch on that show!” Thompson exclaims to a mortified Elizabeth.

In the "rando" room, Harry stops to talk to celebrities like Russell Brand (inexplicably), Elton John (obviously), and Leslie Jones, hilariously playing herself.

"I started tweeting about the wedding two days ago and then I got invited," she explains. "Just like the Olympics. That's my thing."

If only. Watch the entire sketch below:
