Here's how to stream the royal wedding — if your invitation from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got lost in the mail
Consider the countdown to the royal wedding officially on. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are inching closer to tying the knot, and people all over the world are preparing for the big day.
While only 600 guests will be on-hand at St George’s Chapel to watch the pair exchange vows on May 19th, over 2,600 people have been invited to the Windsor Castle grounds — the royal estate where the chapel is located — to celebrate the wedding. But for those billions of us not lucky enough to secure an invite to Windsor Castle or the wedding itself, like Prince William and Kate Middleton’s 2011 wedding, Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding will be televised.
The royal wedding is set to begin promptly at 12 p.m. BST, meaning fans back in the U.S. will be starting their Saturdays very early on May 19th. But while we’ll be watching Prince Harry and Meghan exchange vows while drinking gallons of coffee — okay, and a little champagne — from our couches, we’ll have no shortage of ways to watch it because a number of news outlets will be televising the nuptials, with pre-wedding coverage beginning hours before the event starts.
So…where can we watch the royal wedding?
