Referring to when King Edward and an American Wallis Simpson got together, and the United Kingdom was launched into a constitutional crisis, journalist Sinead Ryan tweeted:

The last American divorcee to marry into the Royal family didn't end well. This one should be fine! Hopefully.#harryandmeghan

And then of course there was the Irish who spotted an opening for future Irish at Buckingham Palace!

And, of course, those Meghan Markle fans who are just a little bit gutted by this Disney fairytale ending.

So Meghan has made her choice?. I've told her, "Don't come running back to me if it all goes pear-shaped". #PrinceHarry #MeghanMarkle
