The Royal Wedding is just around the corner and no one is more excited than we are! Raise your hand if you’re having a watch party. Now raise your hand if you’re dressing up for the watch party. Ok, us neither. But if you do plan to live stream this, we need to fill you in on the tea. There are three important things to know before watching.
When, where and how!
“When, where and how can I watch this?” We got you covered.
The bid day between Markle and Prince Harry will be taking place on May 19, 2018, at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in England. The service will start at noon (or 7 a.m. ET) at St. George’s Chapel, with the dean of Windsor conducting the service and archbishop of Canterbury officiating.
You can live stream the royal wedding on your TV (CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, and BBC America will all be airing it live). HBO is also airing the wedding with commentary from Molly Shannon and Will Ferrell at 7:30 a.m. EST. You can also stream it online via CBS, ABC, BBC America, and the New York Times’s website.
Wait, he’s not going?
Yup. That’s right. It’s been rumored that Markle’s dad will not be attending the Royal Wedding. Kensington Palace, the official residence of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, issued a statement on Monday following reports that Markle’s father pulled out of the wedding. The Kensington Palace didn’t confirm or deny any of the rumors. Ugh! They did, however, say, “This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding. She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation.” We feel for you, Meghan.
That’s so sweet.
As we all know, Prince Harry’s mother passed away. Just as many of our couples, who experienced a loss in the family, Prince Harry and Meghan will be taking steps to honor and remember Princess Diana at their wedding. Here’s how:
Prince Harry and Meghan will be remembering Princess Diana with Meghan’s ring, the floral, and incorporating the family in the wedding. First, Meghan’s ring. The ring is made up of two diamonds that belonged to Princess Diana’s collection. The wedding ceremony floral will be white roses, Diana’s favorite flowers. Finally, the family. Kensington Palace made a statement saying: “In addition to having the support of The Queen, his father The Prince of Wales, and his brother Prince William as Best Man, Prince Harry is also keen to involve his mother’s family in his wedding. All three siblings of Diana, Princess of Wales will be in attendance and Lady Jane Fellowes will give the reading. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle both feel honoured that Lady Jane will be representing her family and helping to celebrate the memory of the late Princess on the wedding day.”
Now that you’ve got the rundown on the big day, let us know in the comments how you plan to watch. Don’t worry, no judgment here if the attire for the watch party is black tie in honor of the big day.
