“Let’s dive straight in with the fact that yesterday saw a royal wedding,” Oliver said, telling us all something it was essentially impossible to miss.

After a series of Gayle King-talking-about-the-royal-wedding clips, culminating in King explaining her confusion over the furor caused by Pippa Middleton’s derriere during the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Oliver said that was “absolutely fair.”

“We British people are not exactly known for our taste in butts,” the Birmingham-born comedian noted.

Oliver then went on to praise Bishop Michael Curry’s “impassioned ode to love” but suggested it “led to some pretty awkward reaction shots” before showing said reaction shots of the queen and other royals looking suitably unimpressed by Curry’s vivacious sermon.
