“Ms. Meghan Markle has asked His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of the Quire of St George’s Chapel on her Wedding Day,” the royals said in a statement. “The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to The Royal Family in this way.”
Is the royal wedding going to be televised?
It most certainly is; this is a big day for some reason. Fox will be showing live coverage starting at 5am ET. NBC's Today will start coverage at 4:30am, with Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb opening “from a special vantage point,” and Al Roker and Sheinelle Jones will take over later. CBS will start its coverage at 4am ET, hosted by Gayle King and Kevin. So remember: Do not forget to set your alarm.
How do you stream the royal wedding online?
If you want to stream the wedding, your best bet will probably be streaming the BBC World News' live coverage and commentary. Just head to the BBC website and you'll be treated to royal wedding coverage that's actually delivered in a British accent. If you prefer the American inflection, you can stream online through CBS at CBSN's live stream.
You can also watch the whole royal wedding on Facebook. The Royal Family's official Facebook page will broadcast the festivities from 6am to 10am (Eastern Time) via a Facebook Live video. Or you can tune into Good Morning America's five-hour royal wedding special via a Facebook Watch video on the ABC News Live page, which starts at 5am ET.
Aren't Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon covering it?
They most certainly are. They'll be appearing on HBO starting at 7:30am. If you happen to have some reverence for the occasion, this is probably not the broadcast for you. If you think the whole thing is bizarre and deserving of ridicule, this is probably the broadcast you're looking for. The comedians will be appearing in character as Cord Hosenbeck and Tish Cattigan. It will be silly. It will be hilarious.
Almost as silly and hilarious as you getting up early to watch this. Anyway, God save the Queen.
