Since everyone across the globe has been eagerly anticipating this weekend’s royal nuptials, it was no surprise to see social media GLUED to the movie. They were so invested, in fact, that one Twitter user admitted that the drama that unfolded in the movie had her emotionally eating!
Another tweeted, “Half the time I’m yelling at the TV, the other half I’m like, ‘this is so spot on.’”
