Getting Ready for a Royal Party

March 15, 2018

The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle isn’t until May 19 but fans are already planning their viewing parties.

The royal nuptials will fall on a Saturday, beginning at 7 a.m. Eastern time in the U.S. For some, that means pajamas for high tea. Others plan to squeeze into old wedding gowns to watch, fascinators in place. One hotel in Palm Beach, Florida, has a swanky four-night package on offer for $24,000.

Kristin Contino of Philadelphia is among those Americans with plans to fly to Windsor to watch in person.

Gossip columnist Rob Shuter is a Brit, a royal wedding podcaster and former executive editor of OK! Magazine. He says the wedding has become a way for “all of us to escape.”
