The Royal Wedding has been impossible to avoid. Almost every television channel and website in the world has spent the day focusing on Kate and William’s wedding. It’s been a little crazy. However, what we didn’t expect was that NHL stars would embrace the wedding as much as they have.
Gary Bettman is a pretty important figure in the NHL, but we wouldn’t have guessed that we’d see him hanging out with the Queen and Prince Charles today. Yet, when we turned on our TVs, there he was!
And Bettman wasn’t the only one.
Kevin Bieksa’s Vancouver Canucks still in the Stanley Cup playoffs, but that didn’t stop him from adding a little royal touch to his uniform. In this picture he’s apparently telling everyone how many times he saw Will and Kate kiss.
We’ve all seen Sean Avery make a spectacle of himself before, but this seems a little ridiculous.
In addition to winning a first-round playoff series and being nominated for the Hart Trophy, Martin St. Louis also managed to snag a spot in the wedding party.
Of course, it would only make sense that the Queen should be accompanied to the wedding by a King.
A lot of people were disappointed in the new couple’s first kiss, but it looks like Alex Ovechkin thought it was pretty hot.
We’re not sure how he does it, but Don Cherry always manages to have the most ridiculous outfit in every picture. He succeeds again here.
Of course, not everyone was able to attend the Royal Wedding. Some people ended up joining the thousands of fans watching outside the palace.
It looks like Phil Kessel had a good time.
