For those keeping track, we’re down to the final hours before the royal wedding between Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle, so it’s high time to get out your fascinators and make your royal viewing plans.
Early risers are in luck for the May 19 wedding. The royal wedding guests are expected to start arriving at the grounds of Windsor Castle around 4:30 a.m. EST, so set those alarms. Why the early hour? Britain is five hours ahead, and it’s a noon start. The ceremony itself begins at 7 a.m. our time.
