Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding: How to watch on TV

When is the wedding?
The Prince and Ms Markle are set to be married on Saturday, 19 May. Clear your diary.

The hour-long ceremony will begin at 12:00pm sharp at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, but expect several hours of TV coverage first as the excitement and anticipation builds.

The service, conducted by the Dean of Windsor, will end around 1pm when Prince Harry and Ms Markle have taken their vows – officiated by The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.

When will the wedding be on television?
Yes, you’ll be able to catch all the action from your sofa. The wedding and procession will be televised live on networks around the world. A single pool camera will capture the nuptials so many channels will be able to broadcast it.

In the UK, the BBC, Sky News and ITV will cover the day with big-name presenters.

The BBC broadcast will be anchored by Huw Edwards, Kirsty Young and Dermot O’Leary from the grounds of Windsor Castle. The cameras will roll from Saturday morning, as Young and O’Leary cover the build-up from the castle’s moat, whilst newsreader Edwards presents from the equally spectacular roof of the Windsor Guard Room.

It’s highly unlikely that we’ll catch a glimpse of the two wedding receptions. They are private events for guests only.
