While Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, remained in Montecito with her two children, Lilibet and Archie, some eagle-eyed Twitter users were convinced she had made it to Westminster Abbey.
Speculating that the duchess might have snuck into today’s service in a large white wig and glasses, one tweet joked that she ‘wasn’t fooling’ anyone.
But it turns out the hairdo was not an elaborate disguise – instead, the man pictured was legendary composer Sir Karl Jenkins, whose ‘haunting, very Welsh’ work Tros y Garreg was played during the ceremony.
Others joked online about the misunderstanding, saying it was ‘Tilda Swinton deep in character’ or ‘Just wait until the polyjuice [a transforming potion from Harry Potter] wears off’.
Many agreed that the off-the-cuff remark was one of the best jokes made about the day, which saw King Charles III crowded at Westminster Abbey alongside his wife, Queen Camilla.
