People are comparing the turnout for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding to that of Trump’s inauguration – and the pictures say a lot.

Over 100,000 people are estimated to have lined the procession route on Saturday, May 19 in Windsor, England, where the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot at St George’s Chapel.

Here’s what the crowd looked like at its fullest as Markle approached:

BBC Three shared a tweet comparing the crowd to that of Donald Trump’s inauguration as US President on January 20, 2017.

There appears to be a pretty stark difference.

However, estimates suggest that around 160,000 people were at the National Mall and surrounding area in the hour leading to Trump’s speech.

While exact figures are unknown for both events, the crowd certainly appeared to be bigger outside of St George’s Chapel.

Thousands of people have responded to the tweet in support of the couple’s union.

J.K. Rowling tweeted the photo with the caption “Love > Hate.”

Other users are posting photos of other crowds that appear to have been bigger than the inauguration, including the Rolling Stones in Brazil…
