Royal wedding TV coverage includes ‘Today’ show and PBS special

Coverage of Prince Harry’s royal wedding to actress Meghan Markle is getting so in-depth, viewers have basically received a personal invitation.

Here’s how to watch the royal nuptials on Saturday, May 19, if you prefer to stay at home. Those brave enough to head out early can watch along as they enjoy breakfast at a local bar.


“Today” is going all out, with the show’s entire team headed across the Atlantic Ocean. “Today at the Royal Wedding” begins bright and early, 4:30 a.m. on Saturday. “We will capture every aspect of the day,” Savannah Guthrie promises. Megyn Kelly, Kathie Lee Gifford, Al Roker and Sheinelle Jones will also be on hand reporting from both Windsor and nearby London.


PBS is on “Royal Wedding Watch.” Hosted by Meredith Vieira and UK TV presenter Matt Baker, a nightly series leading up to the ceremony will serve updates and more sneak peeks. Anita Rani will be on-site at Windsor, and the hosts will be joined in-studio by special guests. Coverage will culminate in PBS’ live broadcast of the ceremony inside St. George’s Chapel starting at 4 a.m.


“Fox & Friends Weekend” is also going live from Windsor, England, with Ainsley Earhardt starting at 5 a.m. on the day of the royal nuptials. Coverage leading up to the big day includes a weeklong series on Fox News Radio, anchored by Simon Owen.


At 4 a.m., Gayle King will be joined by Kevin Frazier to cover the wedding on “CBS This Morning.” 


The red carpet “Live!” crew, including Giuliana Rancic, is switching focus to royal wedding fashion starting at 5 a.m. on E! The network will stream five live hours of coverage.

BBC America

Live wedding coverage begins at 6 a.m. inside Windsor Castle. Not an early bird? The network will air ceremony highlights at 4 and 6 p.m.
