How to Watch Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Wedding
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding will be decidedly different from Will and Kate's extravagant 2011 celebration. They'll be wed in Windsor Castle, not Westminster Abbey; Meghan's ring is all diamonds, while Kate's features a massive blue sapphire; and Harry's bringing an American into the fold, as opposed to a born-and-bred Brit.
But Prince Harry's May 2018 wedding will be the same as his brother's in the only way that really matters (at least to me): it will be televised.
Though the couple hasn't officially confirmed that there will be a broadcast of the ceremony, the Today show has announced its coverage. On the day of the wedding, commentary will begin on NBC at 4:30 a.m. with Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb reporting live from "an exclusive vantage point overlooking Windsor Castle." In other reports, Marie Claire said that the wedding will be televised around the world.
Kensington Palace also put out this statement on November 28.
Royal correspondents across England, used to reading between the lines of Palace statements, are betting this is an indication that you'll be able to tune in to the wedding ceremony, which will begin at 12 p.m. GMT (7 p.m. in the Philippines) on May 19, 2018.
Royal fans turned out in droves to watch Kate walk down the aisle back in 2011, garnering almost 23 million viewers in the U.S. alone. And while one might assume that all royal weddings are televised, it's not a must. For example, Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones chose not to broadcast their nuptials back in June of 1999.
