The Royal Wedding
There’s never been a Royal Wedding quite like it before – but then there’s never been a royal bride quite like Meghan Markle. The American star has already captivated the British public, and now she’s set to take centre stage in a spectacle far beyond even the glitz and glamour of Hollywood.
The world will be watching as Meghan and Prince Harry tie the knot in the presence of Her Majesty the Queen in Windsor, and you can make sure you don’t miss a second of the build-up, or the magical moment the newly married couple emerge from St George’s Chapel, with all the major broadcasters providing in-depth coverage.
But before Saturday there are programmes throughout the week to whet your appetite for the main event. In Royal Recipes Wedding Special (Mon-Fri, BBC1, 3.45pm) Michael Buerk uncovers the secrets of some very special dishes. The Windsors Royal Wedding Special (Tuesday, Channel 4, 9pm) provides an a ectionately satirical alternative slant, followed by Meet The Markles (Tuesday, Channel 4, 10pm), profiling the Prince’s new in-laws. The Royal Wedding: They’re Getting Married In The Morning (Friday, BBC1, 7pm) goes behind the scenes just a few hours before the big day, and finally The Meghan
Markle E ect (Friday, Channel 4, 11pm) considers the importance of the royal bride as a humanitarian and role model. Then, let the party begin.
