May 20 (UPI) -- The cast of Saturday Night Live -- and guest host Tina Fey -- performed a parody of Prince Harry and U.S. actress Meghan Markle's wedding reception.

Mikey Day played an enthusiastic Harry, who wore a military uniform as he spoke to the television camera, introducing tipsy guests such as Elton John, played by Aidy Bryant, and Kate Middleton, played by Cecily Strong.

Kate McKinnon, dressed in a smiliar yellow-green suit and hat Queen Elizabeth II wore to Saturday's wedding, played the monarch trapped by the bride's uncle, played by Kenan Thompson, who tells her she should be watching The Crown, the celebrated, but unflattering, Netflix drama about her and her family.

In the SNL sketch, Alex Moffat played Harry's brother Prince William -- a real-life father of three -- who had an infant baby carrier strapped to his chest and was drinking a "virgin hot toddy," which is just tea, before taking to the dance floor.

Also seen were Beck Bennett as Harry's father Prince Charles and Fey as his Auntie Creepy. Leslie Jones played herself, explaining she tweeted about the wedding a few days before the event and got invited. She was last seen trying to find fellow celebrity guest Oprah Winfrey.
