A Cartoonist Captures Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Very Royal Wedding

If you were watching the royal wedding on Saturday, you weren’t alone—funnily enough, millions of others around the world were also watching. Isn’t it amazing what cameras and TV and the Internet can do?

Will McPhail, a cartoonist for The New Yorker, was using some of the aforementioned technologies to watch, too, and all the while live-drawing wonderful scenes from the whole affair.

Now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been married, the only thing standing between them and global domination is a really awesome honeymoon. Some have suggested that they might go to a remote tropical island, completely isolated from the rest of the world. How romantic! Others think that they might choose to go on an underwater trip to the lost city of Atlantis, which is a real place, but one where only royal people can go. Personally, we think that they might just choose to have a chilled-out week streaming some prestige dramas on TV, and ordering takeout from some new restaurants in the neighborhood they’ve been meaning to try.

Interestingly, royal law states that they can only travel to their honeymoon destination using a horse-drawn carriage. Hopefully they don’t mind a slow, romantic trundle through the countryside! Given the legal constraints, they’ll most likely be taking the M4 toward London, passing Heathrow, and then going on through Brentford and Chiswick into Central London, where they’ll hang out at Buckingham Palace for a bit. McPhail might be drawing the honeymoon trip, too, assuming that the carriage ride is televised twenty-four hours a day, or that he can tail the carriage in his car.

Whether he can draw while driving on the highway is something that we’re not sure of yet, but we wish him all the best.
