Well I know I am looking forward to watching this wedding. Would BBCA be a good channel to watch it on? Depending on when and what I am doing at the time I am going to have to tape it. (sorry if I got offtopic there). White wouldn't be a bad color, I haven't really seen too many royal brides wear white.

CP Victoria's wedding dress was white.

I would be surprised if every major American network did not cover this wedding in full, that is ABC, NBC, CBS & CNN, much like Charles & Diana's wedding (minus CNN). So, I think we will have our options open as to where to watch it. Time will tell!

BTW, I was watching video on YouTube of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson's wedding and I wonder if some of the things that happened there, we will see in April for William and Catherine's wedding. Sarah left Clarence House in a beautiful glass coach and I wonder if Catherine will get transported to the Abbey in it.

I sure hope so! I'm assuming here in Canada CTV and CBC should broadcast it CBC had Charles and Camilla's wedding and CTV had Diana's 10 year Memorial Service.

I'm sure they will, although they won't stay on it without a billion commercials and breaking away to other news. I plan on watching it on the internet and TV.

They didn`t do that for Charles and Diana`s wedding or Andrew and Sarah`s wedding. My complaint about the US broadcasts was that the commentator`s couldn`t shut up.

With the exception of Sophie all the royal brides have gone to their weddings in that coach so I would expect Kate to also use it, unless her reported allergy to horses prevents her from using any coach at all.

The Queen, Princess Margaret, Princess Anne, Diana and Sarah certainly all used that coach. The glass coach is sometimes called the wedding coach as it is used for that purpose.

CBC and CTV both showed Charles and Diana`s wedding live. My family was camping. I made my parents rent a hotel room for the night so we could watch.

That is usually the case.

I don't know what station would carry the wedding, but assuming because it's Prince William, it will be carried. With scads of commercial breaks, of course.

Since it's a Friday wedding, and I don't have classes on Fridays, that means I can stay up to watch it so hopefully some kind person here will provide a link to streaming video online in the event it's NOT carried here or people don't want to watch more commercials than wedding.

To all my friends in England.. who is the gentleman on the BBC who always does the commentary for important events?? He has that wonderful ability to comment just enough, in such an engaging manner, that you can really feel satisfied with the mix of reporting and the actual event taking place..

There's more than one. Recent commentary has been done by either Huw Edwards or David Dimbleby (as David Dimbleby has aged, Huw Edwards has taken over more and more). The commentary for Charles and Diana's wedding, Diana's funeral, and the Queen Mother's funeral (as well as the Edinburgh tattoo up until 2008) was by Tom Fleming, who sadly passed away earlier this year.

Also to the last poster I loved the commentator who did Diana's funeral on BBC I do not cry very easily but they way he spoke got me sooo choked up before anyone had even arrived!

You know...The only thing I can think of between now and the Wedding that would count as an official engagement would be attending along w/William the BAFTA's Awards Ceremony. Britain's Oscars for those who don't know what they are. :)

Isn't William now the President of the organization or at least Patron? I'm going on memory here from earlier this year, so feel free to correct my memory. :) Anyway...If so, then maybe?

I think that would be great although, Kate would have to leave from Buckingham Palace, William's grandparents home, rather than Clarence House which is now the Wale's home.

Whyever not? White is not longer the colour of virginity, but for a first-time wedding.

Your tone comes across as rather sneering.
