Royal Wedding Live Stream in U.S: How to Watch, Time, Channel And More

The day has officially arrived—Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are finally getting married! The only problem is that your invitation was lost in the mail months ago (obviously), so instead on being on your way to the grounds of Windsor Castle, where Harry and Markle will exchange vows at St. George's Chapel, you’re stuck across the pond suffering from a serious case of FOMO (fear of missing out).

Although there’s nothing quite as good as actually being at the most highly anticipated wedding of the year, Markle’s fellow Americans don’t have to miss out on all the royal wedding action. Plenty of networks will be broadcasting live from the grounds of Windsor on Saturday while several others will offer live streams of the wedding as well.

What’s even better? Some outlets are streaming the ceremony, which starts at noon London time (7 a.m. ET), so fans will be able to watch the sweet moment when Harry and Markle finally say, “I do.”

Read on below for a listing of all the networks offering broadcasts and live streams of royal wedding celebrations.

ABC: Providing five hours’ worth of wedding coverage, ABC will start its royal wedding programming on Good Morning America at 5 a.m. ET with hosts Robin Roberts and David Muir. Viewers who don’t have access to a television can also stream the show on ABC’s website.
