It’s already been given the title, ‘Wedding of the Year’ and it hasn’t even happened yet.
Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle are to be married today at St George’s Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle.
Broken Hill has not been immune to royal wedding fever, just ask the staff at the GP Super Clinic, who got dressed up yesterday in anticipation of the big day.
No doubt they’ll be glued to their TV sets today, along with a large slice of the world’s population.
Here is all the information of when, where and how to watch the royal wedding:
Broken Hill is 8 hours and 30 minutes ahead of the royals in Windsor, United Kingdom, therefore it will be Saturday evening our time when the wedding takes place at Windsor Castle.
The guests, more than 2600 members of the public, are invited to watch the wedding from inside the grounds, will begin to arrive at Windsor Castle about 5.30pm our time (which is 9am in the UK).
At 6pm ACST, the main guests will arrive - those who were invited to the ceremony inside the chapel.
Members of the royal family are expected to arrive by foot and car about 7.50pm.
The groom, Prince Harry and his best man, Prince William Duke of Cambridge will arrive on foot shortly after their family.
The last guest to arrive is expected to be the Queen, who will arrive just before the ceremony begins.
The ceremony will begin at 8.30pm ACST and take about an hour.
The newlyweds will then travel around Windsor Castle in a horse-drawn carriage. The final thing we can expect to see from the public part of the wedding is Prince Harry and Ms Markle leaving the castle for their reception at Frogmore House.
Aside from channel 10, almost all free-to-air channels will be broadcasting the royal wedding from either 6.30pm or 7pm ACST.
ABC will be screening wedding coverage from 7pm. Annabel Crabb and Jeremy Fernandez will host the coverage from the ground in London with correspondents, Lisa Miller and James Glenday giving updates from inside Windsor Castle.
SBS’s coverage will be in front of a live studio audience in Sydney. Myf Warhurst and Joel Creasey will host alongside Ray Martin and a variety of other guests.
Channel seven will begin their wedding day coverage from 3.30pm on Saturday afternoon. Hosts, Melissa Doyle and Michael Usher will be live from a studio overlooking Windsor Castle with correspondents from Europe Hugh Whitfield and Laurel Irving.
Channel nine’s Georgie Gardner and Karl Stefanovic will host the coverage with reporters across London and noble guests such as royal photographer Arthur Edwards.
Foxtel are airing BBC’s live coverage of the event on UKTV.E! and the Comedy Channel will also have live screening of the wedding.
For subscribers, a number of other royal television specials will be available to them including one-hour program ‘Meghan Markle: How to be a royal’ which will air at 4pm Saturday. This program will look at how Ms Markle will learn the ways of the royal family.
No matter what channel you land on this Saturday night you’re more than likely going to see something royal-wedding related.
