How to watch the royal wedding

If, like us, you’re still waiting for the wedding invitation to arrive (any day now, surely…) you may need a back-up plan. Whether you’re aiming to join the crowds in Windsor or nab the best seat in front of the telly, here’s the royal lowdown.

When is it again?

Saturday 19 May. 12pm sharp at St George’s Chapel in Windsor. Don’t be late.

How can I watch it on tv?

No formal TV plans are in place just yet but it’s likely the BBC, Sky News and ITV will cover the big day in the UK. Live coverage will kick-off way ahead of the 12pm ceremony, so grab a glass of bubbly for breakfast and watch the guests arriving and crowds gathering before the main event at midday. There will also be footage of the newlyweds’ carriage procession around Windsor once the royal couple are hitched.

The BBC will also waive TV licence restrictions for this special occasion, which means more than ever, there will be televisions showing the event in public places.

Planning on going to Windsor?

After the ceremony, Harry and Meghan will embark on a carriage ride around Windsor at 1pm, following a route along Castle Hill, High Street, Sheet Street, Kings Road, Albert Road, Long Walk and through Windsor Great Park. If you want to join the crowds, we recommend you pick a spot with a view you’re happy with and you guard it with your LIFE.
