Ev­ery­one loves a wed­ding

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Pay Television - The Royal Wed­ding,

It might be quicker to high­light the non-royal wed­ding pro­gram­ming on tele­vi­sion this week. Which is to say there is a lot, es­pe­cially on Fox­tel.

For those with the most ob­vi­ous in­ter­est — the wed­ding it­self — Fox­tel’s BBC UKTV chan­nel will show the BBC’s live cov­er­age of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day from 6.15pm with the ar­rival of the guests, with the cer­e­mony at St Ge­orge’s Chapel, Wind­sor Cas­tle, be­gin­ning at about 9pm, fol­lowed by the car­riage pro­ces­sion through Wind­sor Town from about 10pm.

Not enough? Check out E! Live from the Royal Wed­ding (Satur­day, from 7pm, E!), with a five­hour broad­cast hosted by Gi­u­liana Ran­cic and Brad Goreski.

It will be fol­lowed to­mor­row with E! The Royal Wed­ding Run­down (Sun­day, 6pm, E!) an hour­long re­cap promis­ing all the de­tails from the starstud­ded cel­e­bra­tions.

The Life­style chan­nel is screen­ing Meghan The Royal Wed­ding Live With Cord and Tish Markle: How to be a Royal (Satur­day, 4.30pm), which prom­ises a primer on the kind of eti­quette re­quired by new roy­als, from how to marry, travel, be­have, dress and cel­e­brate in re­gal fash­ion.

And Markle’s movie, Dater’s Hand­book (Satur­day, 8pm, Uni­ver­sal), has been op­por­tunis­ti­cally and op­ti­misti­cally pro­grammed. (It has no Rotten Toma­toes score as it has not been re­viewed by crit­ics.)

But in a piece of pro­gram­ming I am most tempted to watch, co­me­di­ans Will Fer­rell and Molly Shan­non play fic­tional morn­ing talk show hosts Cord Hosen­beck and Tish Cat­ti­gan in The Royal Wed­ding Live With Cord and Tish (Satur­day, 9.30pm, FOX8 and the Com­edy Chan­nel). BBC UKTV. Satur­day from 6.15pm,
