How to Watch Meghan Markle and Harry's Wedding

From Town & Country

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. Here's how you can tune in:

NBC:

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."

PBS:

PBS will also be showing the wedding live. The channel will run a five-part nightly series starting May 14, which will end with a live broadcast of the wedding on May 19.

CBS:

CBS will start their coverage at 4 a.m. eastern from Windsor. Tina Brown will join Gayle King and Kevin Frazier live. CBSN, CBS's live-streaming site will also reportedly be broadcasting coverage starting at 4 a.m.

BBC America:

BBC America will be streaming coverage and commentary of the event on May 19. Here's a link where you can sign in with your subscription or cable account information.

Via Livestream:

While we don't have a specific link just yet, but we'll be sure to drop one in as soon as it's available.

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.
