There's no denying the Mulroney kids made an adorable impression at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but it wasn't just the twins, Brian and John, who got everyone talking.
During the ceremony, many Canadian viewers couldn't help but notice their famous dad, Etalk host Ben Mulroney (whose also famous dad is former prime minister Brian Mulroney), sitting right behind Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they exchanged vows.
A quick look on Twitter determined everyone had the exact same question on their minds.
The real mystery of the #RoyalWedding was how Ben Mulroney got a better seat than the Queen.— Connor Malbeuf (@ConnorMMalbeuf) May 19, 2018
How is Ben Mulroney in the front row at the #royalwedding?— Jeff McGinn (@JeffMcGinn29) May 19, 2018
Is it just me or is it slightly odd seeing Ben Mulroney in the background at a royal wedding? How did he score such fantastic seats? #RoyalWedding— Brittany C (@BChristopo) May 19, 2018
For reference, here's a photo of the Queen's spot at St. George's Chapel.
Her Majesty sat with Prince Philip in the second row, across from Mulroney. Although she's still close enough to see all the action, her view is just not as close.
But it's not just the Queen! Some royal watchers were also confused about how Mulroney received the "guest of honour" seat at the wedding over other A-list celebs who were in attendance.
clearly ben mulroney is the real guest of honour at this wedding considering he has a better seat than the queen 😂— sima ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (@simashakeri) May 19, 2018
Ben Mulroney was closer to the action than Camilla Parker Bowles.— stacey brotzel (@staceybrotzel) May 19, 2018
Although the royal couple has never commented on their seating chart for the wedding, royal expert Alastair Bruce previously noted that it's tradition for members of the Royal Family to sit on the right side closest to the altar, and have the bride's family on the left.
Since Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, was her only family member in attendance, it makes sense that Markle's close friends (re: the Mulroneys) would also be seated close to the front on her side of the chapel.
More from HuffPost Canada:
Markle met the Mulroneys in 2011 after she moved to Toronto to film "Suits." When the former actress began dating Harry, the Canadian couple actually helped her keep the relationship a secret, E! News reports.
This closeness with Ben and Jessica also explains why their kids were included in the wedding party.
Despite this, some people are still having trouble wrapping their heads around the Mulroneys' connection to the Royal Family.
I'm enjoying the crap out of Royal Wedding but an official program would have been helpful. Like why is Ben Mulroney there? Why was that Greek Orthodox guy giving the Lord's Prayer? What was going through the Queen's head when that preacher was letting loose? So many questions..— Brent Staeben (@BrentStaeben) May 19, 2018
Never thought I'd be watching for Ben Mulroney to arrive at anything, but here we are. 🇨🇦🇬🇧 #RoyalWedding— WinterToSpring (@Winter22Spring) May 19, 2018
