NOTL get­ting ready for the royal wed­ding

The Standard (St. Catharines) - - Local - MELINDA CHEEVERS

When Prince Harry makes Meghan Markle his wife on Satur­day, peo­ple around the world will be tun­ing in to watch it live on TV.

In Ni­a­gara-on-the-Lake, there are sev­eral view­ing par­ties planned to mark the nup­tials. Vin­tage Ho­tels’ Prince of Wales Ho­tel will be host­ing a Royal Wed­ding Break­fast in its Draw­ing Room.

While the 6:30 a.m. start time may seem a lit­tle early for some peo­ple on this side of the pond, it’s clearly not for the sold-out crowd head­ing to the Prince of Wales. The event will fea­ture a break­fast buf­fet with Bri­tish trim­mings, in­clud­ing a le­mon el­der­flower cake — the same type of cake Prince Harry and Meghan will have at their wed­ding.

For peo­ple look­ing to mark the oc­ca­sion a lit­tle later in the day, South­brook Vine­yards will be host­ing a Royal High Tea Cel­e­bra­tion from noon to 2 p.m. Guests will be able to in­dulge in de­li­cious treats, while be­ing en­cour­aged to dress their best — there will be prizes for best bling, bag, shoes and more.

Tick­ets are still avail­able for the Satur­day event at the Ni­a­gara Stone Road win­ery. Ad­mis­sion for two is $44.95 plus tax and in­cludes a bot­tle of bub­bly to share, tea, bis­cuits and crum­pets.

Ni­a­gara Parks will mark the Royal Wed­ding by light­ing the falls pur­ple on Satur­day evening, from 9 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., to hon­our the new­ly­weds.

The wed­ding is Satur­day morn­ing in St. Ge­orge’s Chapel in the grounds of Wind­sor Cas­tle. The cer­e­mony, which is set for noon. (or 6 a.m. East­ern Day­light

Time), will be fol­lowed by a car­riage pro­ces­sion and two re­cep­tions.
