Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s wedding has gone to the dogs, literally, after a parade of corgis enacted a ceremony of their own to onlookers in New York City

Eight corgis, a breed notably beloved by Queen Elizabeth II, embarked on Manhattan’s Herald Square on Tuesday to romp around a makeshift castle while outfitted as members of the royal family.

To the amusement of onlookers, the corgis enacted their own version of the wedding ahead of highly-anticipated nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on May 19.

The ‘Royal Corgi Court’, as the event was dubbed, assembled to promote Lifetime’s new movie Harry and Meghan: A Royal Romance set to premiere on May 13. 

During the marketing campaign, a red carpet was used for each corgi to march down in their own outfit to mirror that of one of the royal family members.

A herald announced each corgi’s name in turn as they were paraded down the carpet in their wedding attire.

Those in attendance in corgi form were Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Prince William, Duchess Catherine, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Charles and of course, Queen Elizabeth II. 

The doggos were then led into a faux-grass courtyard featuring a mini fountain and a makeshift Windsor Castle playhouse.

Two royal guards and a woman dressed as Queen Elizabeth kept the dogs entertained as the ran around the play area while onlookers took pictures. 

Corgi Meghan Markle, who was outfitted in a white gown, had a brief wardrobe malfunction as she struggled to keep the rhinestone crown on her head. 

She reportedly spent most of her time sitting in front of the castle while her husband-to-be lapped up all the water in the fountain nearby. 

The corgi Prince Harry was outfitted in a blue military jacket, but the real His Royal Highness could actually choose a morning coat instead for his nuptials on May 19.

Popular British music – including the Beatles and the Spice Girls – was played throughout the entire day for entertainment.

After about 30 minutes of running around the enclosure, the corgis were escorted out for a break from the large crowd.  

The royal court returned periodically throughout the day to acknowledge their fans and take another lap around the enclosure.

Corgis Meghan Markle and Prince Harry even sneaked a kiss later on, but the two dogs were not officially married.
