Celebrities have been shedding “tears” over the royal wedding.

Naomi Campbell and Tamzin Outhwaite were among those feeling emotional about Harry and Meghan’s big day.

Supermodel Campbell wrote on Twitter: “Glued to the royal wedding has me in tears!! This is so beautiful.”

And she approved of the Most Rev Michael Curry’s dramatic address at the service in St George’s Chapel, writing: “Yes … taking it to church!! Pastor ‘when love is the way’.”

Author JK Rowling tweeted an image of US president Donald Trump’s inauguration, comparing the crowds at both events, and wrote: “Love (greater than) hate”.

Comedy star Miranda Hart‏ said the wedding was the “best TV show I have ever seen”.

“I believe that wedding was not only beautiful, moving, exquisite, fun and real but very important,” she tweeted.

“Because inclusivity, acceptance and change is love in action. And that’s what it was over everything.”

She added: “This wedding is the best TV show I have ever seen. I have cried, cringed, laughed and cried some more and there was one scene that was awesome ‘but just a bit too long’.”

Actor and comedy star Josh Gad wrote: “Watching the Brits watch an American Preacher do his thing in Windsor is giving me life right now.

“It’s like watching Metallica do a concert in the Old Globe.”

And Piers Morgan wrote: “Still reeling from Rev Curry. What a moment. What a guy!
