More than six million people tweeted about the big day – more than three times the number during William and Kate’s wedding, social media monitoring firm Visibrain said.
Between 10pm on Friday and 11pm on Saturday, 6,604,498 tweets were posted worldwide on the royal nuptials, of which 5.2 million bore the hashtag #RoyalWedding.
That compared with 1,821,669 tweets across a similar timeframe for Prince William when he married Kate Middleton back on April 29, 2011.
The most picked up post was by Lucy Sempey and was retweeted nearly 105,000 times. It was a photograph of Meghan outside Buckingham Palace as a teen with the message: ‘One day you’re 15 and posing outside Buckingham palace and 22 years later you’re marrying the Prince. Unreal.’

Fashion-minded Twitter users were quick to poke fun at the outfits of the royal wedding guests, starting with Pippa Middleton who sported a light green frock covered in blossoms that was eerily similar to an Arizona tea bottle.
