Inside Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Royal Wedding

British comedian calls Meghan Markle's new royal family "some of the most repressed people on Earth."

John Oliver has always been vocal about his distaste for the royal family, and he doubled down on that notion in the wake of Saturday's widely publicized nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

On Sunday's "Last Week Tonight," Oliver dove straight into tearing apart the biggest wedding of the year, shaming both England's first family as well as crazed Americans in the process.

"Yesterday saw a royal wedding, as you probably knew if you were anywhere within earshot of CBS' Gayle King," Oliver said before playing a montage of the "CBS This Morning" co-host losing her mind during the network's royal wedding coverage.

King made it a point to say she never understood the hype surrounding the "big bottom" of Kate Middleton's sister, Pippa Middleton, who sent the media into a frenzy during Kate and Prince William's royal wedding back in 2011.

"You know what? That's fair, Gayle. That is actually fair," Oliver said. "We British people are not exactly known for our taste in butts. The actual Sir Mix-a-Lot was a 16th-century nobleman that was so inbred, that when a girl walked in with an itty-bitty waist and a round thing in his face, he just sneezed out of his elbow and died."

"Now, perhaps the most notable part of the service was Bishop Michael Curry, who delivered an impassioned ode to love, which led to some pretty awkward reaction shots," Oliver added.

As Bishop Curry took all of us viewers at home to church with a lively sermon invoking the words of Martin Luther King Jr. and lessons on slavery, cameras panned over to Queen Elizabeth II as she fidgeted uncomfortably in her seat.

"Oh, that is the wrong room there, buddy! Believe me, those are some of the most repressed people on Earth!" Oliver said. "Talking to the queen about love is like talking to her about the transformative power of the Taco Bell $5 Chalupa Cravings Box."

Oliver then imitated the queen while imagining her reaction to downing some TB: "'Don't tell me about this. I'm not interested. It sounds disgusting, and if I ever experienced it, I'd break out in hives. Good day to you, sir. I said good day to you now!'"

Back in November, Oliver told Seth Meyers, "I don't care. Americans love the idea of watching British people do something objectively silly, and celebrating a royal wedding is silly, because the royal family is, at its very essence, a very silly thing."

He also told Stephen Colbert that the royal family is "an emotionally stunted group of fundamentally flawed people doing a very silly pseudo-job. That's what [Meghan Markle's] marrying into. So I hope she likes it. It's going to be weird for her."
