The time is upon us: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are about to make it official with the wedding of the year. PBS is ramping up for this global event with Royal Wedding Watch, a five-part nightly series starting May 14 which will culminate in the live broadcast of the wedding of the prince and the actress on May 19.
The series will be hosted by Meredith Vieira and British television presenter Matt Baker. For five days, the two will keep royal wedding fanatics updated on the fancy preparations for the event before Harry and Meghan are joined in matrimony at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. Throughout the week, the hosts will be joined in-studio by experts, commentators and special guests. BBC presenter and host Anita Rani will report live from Windsor Castle each night, and English historian Lucy Worsley, Joint Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, will give the audience all we need to know about the pageantry, pomp, and protocol surrounding the royal couple’s nuptials.
Royal Wedding Watch will be produced by BBC Studios’ Topical and Live Unit and will come nightly from London. The series will air May 14-17 at 10 PM ET and May 18, 10:30 PM ET. The royal wedding will take place on Saturday morning, May 19 on PBS.
