“SNL” went behind the closed doors of the reception of Saturday’s royal wedding between Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle, finding the members of the British royal family expressing, perhaps, their more problematic leanings, especially in the case of host Tina Fey’s Duchess of Devonshire.
“What’s up?! It’s your boy, Harry Windsor, aka Ron Sleazely,” said Prince Harry, played in the sketch by Mikey Day. “Official wedding video 2018. It’s 2 a.m. Royal reception still going strong. Meghan’s in the hallway, trying to stop some of her white relatives from getting in because they’re mental.”
Harry moved through the reception, interacting with guests along the way.

“Sister-in-law, Kate Middleton,” he said to a stumbling Kate, played by Cecily Strong. “You look a little tipsy.”
“For the last six years I’ve been pregnant the whole time,” Strong’s Kate replied. “I’m going hard tonight.”
“I can tell,” Harry replied. “How much have you had to drink?”
“One glass of champagne! Whoo!” she told him.
Before long, Harry came across his brother, Prince William, played by Alex Moffat.
“Oh, hello, William,” Harry said. “Sorry to hear your hair couldn’t make it.”
With William toting his newborn baby in a sling across his chest, Harry convinced him to dance, twerking for the camera. The brothers were having a good time until they realized their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, played by Kate McKinnon, was watching.
Harry moved on to what he called “the cheap seats,” talking to friends of Meghan and relatives he didn’t recognize. After a few more interactions, he found a relative played by Tina Fey, the host of the Season 43 finale.
“I’m the Duchess of Devonshire,” Fey said, explaining in a thick accent who she was. “Your father’s uncle once removed married my mum, who is his cousin. I am both your aunt and your niece.”
“Love it,” Harry replied.
“Last I saw you, you were a wee boy,” Fey continued. “Just after a polo match — I was kicked in the face by a horse.”
“Oh, Aunty Creepy!” Harry exclaimed. “Dad used to say if we were bad we’d have to come live with you.”
“Right he was, because I’m a monster and a bit of a pedophile,” Fey told him.
