Coverage of the royal wedding is still going strong four days after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said "I do," but nothing has proved to be more amusing than a video of the ceremony that's been overdubbed with hilariously inaccurate voice-overs.

Creators of the popular YouTube series A Bad Lip Reading typically mash up famous scenes from movies and TV shows while dubbing them with comical voice-overs. No matter how ridiculous, the voice-overs somehow seamlessly match with what was actually said — making them all the funnier, the Daily Mail reports.

The latest Bad Lip Reading video takes on some of the most memorable moments from the ceremony held at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, including Prince Harry and Prince William's pre-wedding chatter and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's vows.

The video starts with Harry, 33, and William, 35, sitting side by side in the chapel when the eldest prince leans over and asks his brother a very odd question.

"So how many animals would you say you've probably killed," William asks, prompting Harry to respond: "You think I've kept count?"

After some thought, Harry eventually fesses up to killing 1,693 giraffes. 

In another version of the moment, William turns to Harry and says: "I hope you understand that we're puppets."

"Hmm?" Harry responds, and William repeats himself.  

"You said we had free will," Harry hits back, but William insists that he didn't.

"That's what you told me," Harry says before they both turn and look up at the ceiling of the chapel.

Viewers of Saturday's royal wedding were clamouring to know what Prince Harry said to Meghan at the altar, but the Bad Lip reading version is far more amusing.

"Do you need a pen?" he asks his bride in the video, and she can't help but ask: "Why would I need a pen?"

"I'm not sure," he admits. 

Meanwhile, Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, asks Harry and Meghan to name their favourite Harry Potter characters.

After they both say "Hagrid," the archbishop responds: "Not correct."

American Bishop Michael Curry stole the show with his fiery address at the couple's wedding, so it should come as no surprise that he received his own comical overdubbing. 

"You know I slipped and fell into a coffin this weekend," he says in the clip. "No, I didn't. It was just a dream. It was just a dream. There wasn't a coffin.

"I said, 'Hurray.' Do you know what I felt like?" he asks. "Like the best squirrel in the hole. Now let us all try to be the best squirrel in the hole.

In another moment, Harry tells his bride that he doesn't "like the air in here."

"Can you smell it?" he asks. "Yeah, it is definitely strange," she agrees. 

Harry then reveals that he has a wedding present for her.   

"I have a surprise for you. It's a golden unicycle," he says, but Meghan is clearly disappointed. 

"I don't want that," she responds. "That present is a fail."

The video even features an overdubbing of the Kingdom Gospel Choir's beautiful rendition of Stand By Me

Instead of belting out the lyrics to the song, Kingdom Choir conductor Karen Gibson sings: "You've got to learn to glid,e and glint."

"Oh it's so sad," the choir sings back.

Since it was posted on Tuesday, the hilarious video has been viewed more than 6.4 million times, and people can't seem to get enough of it.
