Watch the royal family looking uncomfortable during Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding

It's been five years since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married in front of the royal family, with the rest of the world watching on, but did you notice this slightly awkward moment?

You may recall that Bishop Michael Curry gave an enthusiastic sermon lasting 14 minutes, and a hilarious video shared by fan account @fifi_loves_the_walesesshows the look on everyone's faces as the address stretched on.

Prince William had a smile on his face, while the then-Prince Charles decided to look down during the chat. Princess Kate held it together with a pursed smile and Zara Tindall was left open-mouthed during the moment.

"The pastor was going to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime moment. All of them have heavy eyelids. Charles couldn't hang on," commented on fans on the clip. Another added: "It’s Zara Tindal’s face that gets me." A third joked: "I'm surprise Prince Philip didn't cut it short," as he was known for his no-nonsense attitude.

The couple tied the knot at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle on Saturday 19 May 2018 and their evening wedding reception was held at Frogmore House.

The bride changed from her Givenchy dress which boasted a bateau neckline and three-quarter sleeves into a slinky halterneck gown by Stella McCartney.

Oprah Winfrey wrote about her experience of the royal wedding in a piece in O, The Oprah Magazine.

She penned: "I was unprepared for the depth of emotion I felt stepping onto the grounds of Windsor Castle. It literally took my breath away. I exclaimed out loud to no-one in particular: 'Whoa! This right here is a whole 'nother level!'
