When is the wedding, and what time will it happen here?


Meryl, if I remember correctly, MSNBC said they will start broadcasting the wedding at 6 am (Eastern). I'm sure we will start hearing the broadcast times for all the networks as the wedding draws closer. Smiley

I remember getting up in the middle of the night back in July '81 to watch Charles and Di get married.  Was a 15-year-old Anglophile, and my parents thought I was insane when they heard me turn on the TV at 3 am and plop myself down in front of it.  Back in those ancient days, TV's were pieces of furniture that lived on the floor, ha-ha.  I was entranced by the gallantry of all of it.  But the monarchy is just not the same as it was back then.  It's lost its magic.  Seemed to disappear, at least for me, when Diana lost her life in '97.

So, no, I won't be watching.

Although I hope Diana will be...

I did the same thing Mandy. In fact my Grandma was visiting us at the time and she got up for it too. We watched it together. That was fun! I didn't even go to bed before Diana's funeral. We just stayed up very late and watched it.

I agree, the British Monarchy is changing. But it is still very fascinating to many Americans, including me. I love the Royal Family! Cool Cool

I am also an ardent monarchist and did seriously think about going to London as I will be so close. However I realised accommodation would be at a premium and the crowds horrendous. I have a photo of William as my screensaver  Roll Eyes It has been there for years so is a bit dated and he has a full head of hair :-) 
He made a great impression when he visited Christchurch recently and then the areas where flooding had occurred in Australia. There are things a royal can do in times of national disaster that cannot be done by a politician. I do hope all goes well and he brings back the admiration gained by his grandmother. He is making a good start. I dread seeing Australia and/or New Zealand becoming republics.

Nope, I won't be watching.  Never did follow the royals.

I too remember the wedding of Diana and Charles.....thinking what a beautiful fairy tale.....unfortunately having read since, about Charles and Camilla, and the fact that they were together the night before that wedding, when I see clips of their wedding now, I see Charles as a proper arsehole, and thats why it pains me to think that Camilla will probably be sitting where Diana should have been sitting at William's wedding. Dont they have any shame at all.

I believe the chair for the mother of the groom should be respectfully left vacant, and if its not I dont know if I want to watch the wedding.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

I put maybe.

I have been gigen the day off for the wedding and I have no plans at the moment.

More than likely I'll record it so I zip through all the rubbish build up bit and get to the - celebs and royals arriving and seeing what they are wearing plus Kate arriving.. fast forward through the wedding and get to the pomp and circumstance bit of them leaving and waving to crowds on the balcony!

There are very few street parties arranged in the UK compared to the last royal weddings...

Yep.  I'm not a follower of the royal family like a friend of mine is, but I do like a spectacle with a lot of tradition.
