Me too, they televise all the weddings.

But I have to admit a lot of the excitement and anticipation has gone out of the wedding (at least for me) now that I know it will be a more low-key event at Saint George's Chapel.

I'm sure it will be nice but I am really disappointed. :sad:

For Americans who'd like to see the celebrations in person, there a great Hotels there, [Heathrow is but a few miles away] and London is easily accessible by both Rail and car...

DO come, you'd be so very welcome !

How long do you think we'd need to queue up in advance to get a decent spot along the processional/recessional route?

I fear that you indeed got your hopes hung up on the "wrong man" :biggrin:
Harry doesn't seem to be the type for "pomp and circumstance".

I think Harry and Meghan wanted something simpler but romantic. The pomp and ceremony are nice but a lot goes into something like that maybe they just wanted everyone to be as comfortable as possible. I think it will be a beautiful wedding and we will see them since it will be televised.

Are we sure it's going to be televised? There are no camera's allowed in St George's Chapel.
To avoid mistakes or confusion: I'd love to watch their wedding on TV, it's just because of the general protocol there.

Edward and Sophie's wedding was televised.

So exciting. Lots of rumors in the coming months though.

I think security and the disruption to traffic in London might have been a consideration to the decision--not the deciding factor but a consideration. Holding the wedding at Windsor is easier.

princess carmen 11-28-2017 11:13 AM

Sophie and Edward's wedding was televised so I would think this one would as well. I don't see them not showing it especially since this is a big event.

Oh shoot, I totally forgot about them in all this chaos. You're right. Then we have nothing to worry about.

True, their wedding had not come up in my mind. I was thinking along the lines of Peter Phillips' wedding, but he is of course in a totally different league. But then this will be televised as well.

Fantastic news. It will be a lovely wedding. No need to worry that the wedding won't be grand. Windsor is a perfect venue for any royal occassion. I'm happy that the Chapel is becoming more accosiated with weddings again and not only being the "Funeral and Burial chapel".

Sounds great that the couple is planning the ceremony themselves. Sounds like it will be a familiar wedding like the Wessex'es then ;)

Hans-Rickard 11-28-2017 11:15 AM

Maybe the wedding will be at the pentecost weekend (Saturday 19:th May).....

Anna Catherine 11-28-2017 11:16 AM

St. George’s seems so lovely and I’m not that surprised considering his position in the line of succession and their personalities. Also, May is great so that everyone can be there (i.e. Kate) and it’s not such a crowded months in terms of events. It’ll still be televised and I never saw Edward and Sophie’s wedding so I’m not as familiar with how it looks or what weddings are like there. So much fun ahead! I love royal weddings!!

Yes I definitely think this was a consideration.

I'm sure the wedding itself will be beautiful. I actually like St. George's interior more than the Abbey - it's a beautiful church and will look so pretty with flowers, etc...

I'm just hoping we get to see the procession to the church with people lining the streets, etc...

I love that part. It feels like we only get that with London weddings.

Edward and Sophie's wedding was televised. And all royal reporters are reporting that it will be televised, but hasn't worked out the logistics yet and have said the couple wishes the public to join them in this celebration.

Much depends on how many Americans make the journey, but 6am should secure a decent spot [lots of places near for Coffee's, Brekkies and 'comfort breaks']...

So was Charles and Camilla's blessing.

Oh that's right - that was too.

I would eat my socks if this wedding wasn't televised.

I think there were many factors taken into consideration. I'm sure both WA and St. George were possibilities from a purely protocol standpoint. But I do think KP saying Windsor is close to the couple's heart is most significant.

Are you "happy" with this venue, wyevale? Do you think it is appropriate? Since you were so determined about it before the announcement.
