I don't think most people will have any difficulty watching. I think closer to to May is when all the networks across the world will point their watching in the right direction and I am 100% sure many streams will be running.

It is THE British coronation anthem, written specifically for the coronation of George II in 1727 and has been played just before the anointing of every British monarch since then. It is a truly special piece of music and has come to be seen as a very British patriotic song.

I was honestly surprised to learn that Mary and Frederick chose it for their wedding since it is so associated with the UK.

I know Kate walked up the aisle to I Was Glad by Parry which was also written for a British coronation but it doesn't hold anything like the significance that Zadok the Priest does.

I hope Elton John and David Furnish will attend; after Elton Joh gave such a beautiful tribute to Harry's mother it would be not right not to invite him.

I actually liked that Catherine worked with her father in law on the music for the wedding, and they came up with ĎI Was Gladí for the wedding march.

Iím thinking Meghan and Charles will work together on some music too.

Re: TV coverage: Has the palace yet announced that there will be cameras at the ceremony? Because meaningful live streaming hinges on that.

I have no doubt that if there is in-church camera coverage that the US networks will do wall to wall coverage.

I thought KP announced the wedding would be televised.

I think that means though that there will be a shared camera feed from within the church.

Well if it is not coverage then someone mislead the mass media because they are all under the impression this is being televised and they all planning to cover it. The royal reporters have all said as much as well.

Yes, the wedding will be televised. Even Edward and Sophie’s wedding was televised and shown live here in America.

I am sure it shall be a happy day. A wedding is the most romantic part of life. And. I know Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II will think of her own. It just seems that she cannot hide it. Even after 61 years. Salute!

PS. A nice Royal Wedding took place at Barnwell Manor. At the time. Their Royal Highnesses, Prince And Princess Richard Of Gloucester. Any photos on here of that lovely wedding?

Would it be possible for Prince Charles to compose an entirely brand new wedding entrance march for Meghan's wedding?

Its not uncommon for some songs to be commissioned for a royal wedding. Kate and William had a few pieces that were commissioned for the wedding.

This one was a gift to the couple from the abbey who commissioned it.



There was also a piece by a young welsh composer.

I have never heard Charles writing music of his own. But if he has a hand in selecting music for the wedding like he did for William's, he may commission one for the couple.

No, Charles don’t write music. He and Catherine worked together on the music selections.

I invited friends over to watch (wanted to have a little party like I did for the Cambridge wedding).
But nobody thinks a wedding at St. George's is worth getting up so early!
Looks like I'll have to go it alone, unless I can be more persuasive!

What would be the most number of bridesmaids and flower girls Meghan would have? What would be the least number?
