‘#BREAKING! Woman wears dress’: Royal wedding saturation sparks widespread fatigue

The manic frenzy with which Western media saw fit to report every minute detail of the royal wedding has sparked an outpouring of exasperation on social media, with many asking why they aren’t reporting on actual news.

As the marriage of Harry Windsor to Meghan Markle unfolded, news outlets bombarded their audiences with countless updates, tweets and alerts on everything from the designer of Markle’s dress, to Elton John kissing David Beckham, to James Cordon arriving at the church.
