Victorian Trading Co.’s Guide To Hosting A Royal Wedding Viewing Party

Will you be watching?

Come Saturday, May 19th, Prince Harry will take a wife. The highly anticipated nuptials will be broadcast for hopeless romantics around the world. And will perhaps be the most-watched royal wedding yet.

One can turn the channel to a number of networks that will be airing live coverage. Harper’s Bazaar lists The Today Show (NBC), PBS, and BBC America among others.

St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, UK, will see the couple married at noon. A few time zones will issue a much earlier hour: New York (ET) 7 a.m., Chicago (CT) 6 a.m., Denver (MT) 5 a.m., Los Angeles (PT) 4 a.m., and Honolulu (HAST) 1 a.m.

Cherish the televised event with friends — spotting the unique hats of Princess Beatrice and Eugenie or dabbing tears during the exchange of vows. Hosting a royal wedding viewing party is a perfect way to commemorate the joyous occasion.

All you need to do is. . .
