How and where to watch Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Royal Wedding

4 May 2018, 15:49

OK, so you might not have snagged an invite to the biggest wedding of the year, but there are plenty of other ways to catch it on May 19.

Whether you watch on TV at home or on a big screen out and about, here are a few options for you:

1. Watch it at home

The simplest option is to watch the big day on telly at home. Coverage of the big day will be on all the major channels, with the ceremony itself starting at 12pm.

It hasn't been confirmed yet, but the official Royal Family YouTube page live streamed Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding in 2011, so we should expect the same thing this time around.

Plus, make sure to keep checking back to for all the latest news from the big day!

2. At an amazing cathedral


Winchester Cathedral will be playing the wedding on the big screen in the awesome and rather gothic Nave of the building.

After the wedding, the event will move into the grounds, where there will be plenty of family entertainment. Tickets are free, but you may have to get in quick.

3. Combine it with the FA Cup Final

Dreamland Margate

TWO huge events are happening on May 19, and you can celebrate both at Dreamland Margate, who will be screening each event live at its special 'street party' within the food court area.

The venue will be transformed into an inflatable church, with party benches and everything. The screenings will be free with park entry, and you can even get a free unlimited ride wristband if you're named Harry, Meghan, or wearing a wedding dress!

4. On a rooftop bar in London


If you head to Tobacco Dock's rooftop venue Skylight, you can catch a screening of the royal wedding.

Guests can watch the ceremony in the gorgeous open air (let's hope it doesn't rain), while also playing croquet, eating some amazing street food and drinking Royal Wedding-themed cocktails. And it's free!

5. At an afternoon tea in Scotland

The Fairmont

The Fairmont hotel in St Andrews - which is also the university town where Kate and William met - is hosting a royal afternoon tea during a screening of the wedding.

There will be plenty of 'wedding cake' selections, including a blueberry violette cake, traditional fruit cake and a 24 carat chocolate fondant. Yum! However, tickets start at £50.

6. At a garden party in Oxfordshire

The Falcon

Banbury's The Falcon at Warmington will show the wedding on a big screen in a large outdoor marquee, to make you feel all summery.

The Royal Wedding Garden Party will also provide a Pimms or G&T, afternoon tea and a bottle of prosecco for two, along with a jazz band straight after the wedding. Tickets also start at £50.

7. Head to the middle of Cambridge

Cambridge generic

The city of Cambridge's Market Square is showing the wedding on a large screen, as well as a huge street party.

Although the event is free, it will have limited seating, so maybe you could invest in some new camping chairs or beanbags?
