Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married today (19 May) and LGBTI celebrities can’t handle it.

Held in St George’s Chapel in Windsor, the ceremony featured a pro-LGBTI American bishop who gave an inspiring speech about love and social justice.

Markle stunned in a Givenchy dress, with all members of the British royal family in attendance, except for baby Prince Louis.

Also in attendance was Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish, George and Amal Clooney, David and Victoria Beckham, Oprah and Serena Williams.

But it seems this very British spectacle caught the eye of some American fans.

Michelle Visage: ‘OMG I’M LIVING’

Openly gay CNN political commentator Keith Boykin tweeted his praise for Bishop Michael Curry.

He wrote: ‘Bishop Michael Curry quoting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the Royal W: “We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will make of this old world a new world.”‘

Gay American civil rights activist DeRay Mckesson also tweeted his support for Bishop Curry: ‘Preach.’

Drag Race host Michelle Visage couldn’t contain her excitement over the Royal Wedding, posting several tweets during the live commentary.

On the attendance of The Kingdom gospel choir led by Karen Gibson, Visage tweeted: ‘SING IT CHOIR!!!! OMG I’M LIVING.’

Season nine and 10 star of Drag Race, Eureka O’Hara, also tweeted: ‘I’m in the U.K. and the energy around the Royal Family Wedding is amazing. So inspirational!’

Glee star Chris Colfer tweeted a photo of himself with the British flag and a coffee mug with Harry and Meghan’s face on it.

Drag Race host Ross Mathews commented the event for ET Canada and also posted an excited photo.

Gay American actor Wilson Cruz tweeted: ‘Congratulations to Harry and Meghan, our CALIFORNIA GIRL, The Duchess of Sussex.’

RuPaul tweeted: ‘Had a good proper cry this morning while reading coverage of the t symbolizes where I’d hoped humanity would be in 2018.’

MNEK said: ‘The culture in this wedding is SWEETING me.’
