SNL's Season 43 finale put a hilarious spin on the royal wedding reception and brings back Tina Fey's Palin
The show's Prince Harry was full of quips, taking the audience on an introductory tour of his family, while Tina Fey made fans swoon with her impeccable Palin impression
It's been almost two days, but clearly, no one is over the hangover that was the Royal wedding on May 19. It's clear with Saturday Night Live's season finale putting their own spin on the event and staging a post-wedding reception skit, just hours after the original ceremony.
The 'exclusive' look inside the reception showcased Mikey Day as Prince Harry, taking his wedding videographer around the party, introducing them to his family members - like Meghan Markle's side of the family was played by Chris Redd and Kenan Thompson; while Prince Charles was played by Beck Bennett; there's also Harry's "Aunt Creepy," played by Tina Fey, who hosted the episode. Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, was played by Alex Moffat; and Kate McKinnon played the Queen.
SNL's Harry was full of quips like, "So sorry to hear that your hair could not make it tonight," aimed at his brother William. There were jokes on William's age too and eventually there was an attempt to get him twerking. Sadly there was no on-screen Markle, as Day's Harry said Meghan was "out in the hallway trying to keep her white relatives out because they're mental."
Pretty hilarious, but that wasn't all. SNL alum Tina Fey decided to make a comeback, reprising one of her most iconic roles - the 2008 rendition of Sarah Palin. Palin herself showed up in the final half hour of the show too!
Fey's sketch of the vice-presidential hope, said, “It’s me, the ghost of Sarah Palin" - as if speaking to her fans, before she quickly claimed she was kidding. “I’m still alive,” she added. “But you had to think about it, didn’t ya? One minute you’re on top, and then you’re gone in the blink of a Scaramucci.”
Another marvelous surprise the sketch offered was John Goodman, who portrayed an impression of Trump’s former secretary of state, Rex Tillerson. “I’m the only man ever to go into a situation scathed and come out unscathed,” he quipped. “Trump was the biggest mess I’ve ever dealt with, and I worked for Exxon Mobil.”
