THE countdown for the second royal wedding of the year has begun. Here is how you can watch the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank live on TV and the internet.
The big day has arrived – Princess Eugenie will marry Jack Brooksbank today at Windsor Castle.
You have several options on how to watch the wedding, so get comfy and pick your method.
Below we outline them for you, and even offer a live stream so you don’t even have to click out of the page.
Windsor will once again play host to a royal wedding after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot in May.
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will get married today, Friday October 12.
Because the wedding takes place on a weekday, and they are “minor” royals, it is unlikely to attract the 13 million UK audience of her cousin’s wedding.
In total 18 million people tuned in to watch the event.
However, that does not mean it will be any less of a glamorous event – with the same familiar faces, fabulous floral displays and amazing dresses.
The celebrations will be televised for those who wish to witness the royal event.
The whole wedding will be shown on a This Morning special.
Cameras will start rolling at 9.25am on ITV, with presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford ready to narrate the wedding.
The This Morning at the Royal Wedding show continues until 12.30pm.
ITV will be showing the arrivals, ceremony, departure from the chapel, as well as insight from guests, commentators and experts.
The ceremony itself begins at 11am from St George’s Chapel and will be broadcast in full.
The newlyweds will then depart on a short carriage procession around Windsor.
If you don’t have time to watch the whole programme, don’t worry.
ITV will be showing a 30-minute highlights programme at 8pm, called The Royal Wedding: A Family Celebration.
The BBC will also show highlights later in the day, but decided against live coverage of the wedding.
It is thought Princess Eugenie’s wedding would not attract enough viewers to warrant a live broadcast.
Apparently, “there isn’t enough support for the Yorks”, despite efforts from Prince Andrew, according to the Daily Mail.
Those who want to see the event in the US will need to rise very early – 6am EST or 3am PST to be exact.
The American lifestyle channel TLC will cover the event for the US, with a special show called “Royal Wedding Live: Princess Eugenie”.
The wedding will also be streamed live on the internet for people across the world to enjoy.
The Royal Family and The Duke of York’s YouTube channels as well as Facebook and Twitter pages will show the event.
