Royal wedding 2018: How you can watch the swanky ceremony

On Saturday, May 19, all eyes will be on Great Britain as we celebrate another royal wedding. Prince Harry will be tying the knot with American actress Meghan Markle, and we can’t wait to see the ceremony, which will be held at St. George’s Chapel on the Windsor castle grounds.

Since our invitation got lost in the mail (it’s OK, we’re not bitter) we are left trying to find a different way to watch it happen. Fortunately for us, the wedding will be broadcast, so we won’t have to miss a single thing.

The ceremony starts at 7 a.m. ET so sleeping in will not be an option if your goal is to watch the entire thing. If you get up in time, your choice of how to watch entirely depends on your preferences.

You have options

You had to know an event like this would be covered, and rest assured, nothing will be missed.


If you are looking for some familiar faces, the “Today Show” crew will be in Windsor to broadcast the scene live.

You will be able to watch Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Megyn Kelly, Al Roker and Sheinelle Jones in a special episode Friday, the day before the wedding. As for the day of, their show will start at 4:30 a.m. EST.


If you are more a fan of the “Good Morning America” hosts, you’re in luck because they too will be in Windsor for the wedding. They will be taping five hours of live coverage, which will be aired later but will be streaming the ceremony live on

FOX News

Some members of the FOX News crew will also be on hand in Windsor, with Shepard Smith, Sandra Smith and Ainsley Earhardt co-anchoring the coverage. They will start their broadcast at 6 a.m. EST.


Starting at 4 a.m. EST, Gayle King and Kevin Frazier will be hosting CBS’s coverage of the royal wedding. Tina Brown will also join the live broadcast to help provide commentary.


Another network that will be carrying the wedding live is PBS, who will also be airing many special episodes about the couple leading up to the ceremony. Called “Royal Wedding Watch,” the episodes are hosted by Meredith Vieira and Matt Baker.

PEOPLE’s broadcast will begin at 6 a.m. EST, with hosts Jeremy Parsons. PEOPLE editors will chime in from their New York studio, while reporters on the ground in Windsor will also share their thoughts and experiences.


If you are looking for more of a comedic take on the wedding, HBO is the broadcast for you. Their show will be hosted by Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon, who will step into their local news anchor characters Cord Hosenbeck and Tish Cattigan, respectively. In character, the duo previously hosted the Rose Parade earlier this year.

Called “The Royal Wedding Live with Cord and Tish!,” this show will air on HBO beginning at 7:30 a.m. EST.
