On May 19, billions of people across the globe will tune in to watch Meghan Markle walk down the aisle to marry the man (or the prince, to be exact) of her dreams.

About two billion people watched the televised coverage of the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011. For sure, even more royal watchers will catch Prince Harry’s wedding to the American actress. If you’re planning a viewing party of your own, here’s when and where to watch the wedding of the year:

Filipinos can also expect other platforms to air the wedding apart from these broadcast programs. Those who prefer to watch online can catch the coverage on NBC, Today, and The New York Times. Among the more unusual coverages is an HBO special hosted by Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon posing as royal correspondents.

What we can expect to miss, however, is the evening reception that Prince Charles will host for his son and his new daughter-in-law, which will be an intimate event on the Windsor Castle grounds. The couple will also be skipping the iconic balcony debut, unlike Prince William and Duchess Kate and Prince Charles and Princess Diana on their wedding night.
