Saturday 19th May 2018 will see Meghan Markle walking down the aisle to be married to Prince Harry, and it will be broadcast live in the UK, and other countries, including a number of live-streams enabling you to watch the royal wedding online. The transatlantic union is set to be watched by millions across the globe, all eager to catch the first glimpse of Meghan's dress, and the young Prince George in his page boy's outfit. Which celebrity guests will be in attendance? Given Ms. Markle's history as an actress on Suits, and her close friendships with celebrities such as Serena Williams and Priyanka Chopra, it seems fair to expect a number of A-listers to show up, though we do know (sadly) that the Obamas won't be there. Perhaps the most pressing questions right now are who will give Meghan Markle away, and will her father be present?
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Wedding ceremony will take place on May 19th at 12 pm BST at St George's Chapel, Windsor. However, guests will begin arriving long before that, with The Queen expected to arrive around 11:30 am. The Groom and his Best Man, Prince William, will likely arrive around 11:15 am, while Ms. Markle will arrive via car with her mother at about 11:55 am. The service will be broadcast in its entirety, and we will also follow the carriage procession of the newlyweds through Windsor. Here's how you can watch it all unfold:
