MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Party-goers ate cupcakes and waved the Union Jack after watching the royal wedding of Prince Harry and American Meghan Markle televised at a downtown Minneapolis pub.

Brit's Pub hosted the event Saturday, which drew a crowd mainly of women wearing fascinators. Afterward guests lined up on the sidewalk to pose for pictures with a life-size photo of the newlyweds.

Erin Massa of Brooklyn Park says the wedding was "a real-life fairy tale." The 34-year-old says if someone her age from America "can suddenly become a princess, essentially, anything really is possible."

Ralph Campbell of Excelsior donned a three-piece dark suit with a bow tie for the watch party. Campbell called the ceremony "a global wedding" and said he thinks "it will only help the cause of peace in the world."
