The Royal Wedding Has Been A Hot Topic Among WWE Superstars & Fans
The WWE and the Royal Wedding surprisingly share a fanbase
Taking place today, May 19th, in the United Kingdom, the world has its eyes on the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The couple has been public about their relationship since November 2016 -- and rumored to be together since June 2016 -- with its engagement announcement following one year in November 2017. Ultimately, this marriage means the former Suits actress to be the second American (and first person of mixed race heritage) to become part of the British royal family.
While professional wrestling -- or "sports entertainment," as the WWE has been known to call it -- is not generally thought of in the same thought as England's Royal Family, the two topics have seen plenty of shared real estate in social media this week. Below are some of the highlights of recent WWE-related postings related to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who Sportskeeda sends its best wishes to.
