Watch the royal wedding live on Citynews.ca on Saturday

News Staff and The Canadian Press | posted Friday, May 18th, 2018

On Saturday, May 19th, Prince Harry will wed Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle’s St. George’s Chapel.

Watch a live stream of the the royal wedding on CityNews.ca starting at 6 a.m. Eastern.

Some 79 international broadcasters, including CityTV and outlets from the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, are planning to report on Markle and Harry’s wedding. More than 5,000 U.K. and foreign media and support staff have credentials to cover the ceremony and reception.

Americans in particular – some 46 U.S. broadcast affiliates will cover the wedding – are obsessing because the bride is one of their own. The E! TV entertainment network plans to devote five hours of air time to the wedding that matches a California girl with a British prince.

While Markle was raised in the Los Angeles area, she also has a Canadian connection, having lived in Toronto since 2011 while filming U.S. legal drama “Suits.”

The 33-year-old prince, who is fifth in line to the British throne, and the 36-year-old divorced American actress met through a mutual friend in 2016, bonded during a camping holiday in Botswana and managed to keep their relationship secret from the media for several months.

It won’t be the first time that a British royal has married an American, or a divorced person. In 1936, Edward VIII famously abdicated after he was forced to choose between the monarchy and his relationship with twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson.

 

Windsor Castle, west of London, is one of Queen Elizabeth II’s main residences. The 15th-century chapel is as historic but more intimate than Westminster Abbey, where William married Kate Middleton in 2011.
