The royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton wasn’t merely a sensation for the eyes (The dress! Those hats! Pippa!), it was also a Twitter affair.

When crude hash tags referring to doing the nasty with a prince or queen are trending worldwide, it’s safe to say the monarchy has reached new heights. (Though if either of those ‘I’d like to’ acronyms had been applied to Prince Charles or Queen Elizabeth II -- well, that’s just disturbing.)

Tweets poured in with people chiming in on just about every detail. And we lowly citizens weren’t the only ones hammering out our thoughts on the lavish affair in 140 characters or less. Even the stars got up in the wee hours (for some) to indulge in the modern-day fairy tale.

From Stephen Colbert and Miley Cyrus to Kelly Rippa and wedding guest Victoria Beckham, all had something to say about the nuptials.
