The wedding event of the year is upon us! Meghan Markle will finally say "I do" to Prince Harry on Saturday, May 19 and officially begin her life as part of the royal family. The official wedding begins at 7 a.m. ET but coverage begins far earlier. In the meantime, we get to buy tea and biscuits and wake up at the crack of dawn to watch the fan fare and crazy hats go down. Because this is such a big pop culture event, there are a plethora of ways you can watch the ceremony. Here's what you need to know.


A few networks are starting early with their coverage, giving you all the pre-game information before the big festivities start at 4 a.m. ET. If you need to see everything, these are the networks to check out.

BBC America & PBS: Both networks will be broadcasting sister-network BBC's coverage from across the pond.

CBS: CBS will have special correspondents, including Tina Brown, author of The Diana Chronicles,leading its coverage.

CNN: The news network will kick off coverage with Anderson Cooper, Alisyn Camerota and Don Lemon anchoring the news hour. (Note: CNN's online stream will begin at 5 a.m. ET)

NBC: NBC officially starts its coverage at 4:30 a.m., but it also has exclusive viewing from above Windsor Castle, so it may be worth the wait.


If you're more of a casual Royal Wedding viewer or simply need the extra hour of sleep, there are a few networks kicking things off a bit later, at 5 a.m. ET.

ABC: ABC may be starting later, but if you download the ABC news app you can take pictures of yourself next to the royal carriage and the Queen's Guard as if you were actually in London.

E!: Giuliana Rancic and a panel of experts will be covering the big event for the entertainment network, which has been living and breathing this wedding for months now.

Telemundo: The Spanish-speaking network kicks off its coverage just as the festivities pick up in London.

TLC: The network will have live-stream coverage of the event if you want to watch without any of the frills.

HBO: The premium network is also joining in on the royal wedding fun at 7:30 a.m. ET with Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon playing their Rose parade characters Cord and Tish.


If you have cut the chord, or if you prefer to watch from your laptop, there are also plenty of online options! The Royal Family's official Facebook page will be hosting a live stream of the parade and the wedding. You can also watch the royal wedding on fuboTV, which you can try here for free.

Happy royal wedding day and cheerio to you all!
