On Monday 27 November 2017 The Prince of Wales announced the engagement of his son Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle and this weekend the big day will be broadcast all over the world. But where and when can you watch the wedding of the year if you are in Croatia.
On the 19th of May at the St. George Chapel in Windsor the eyes of the world will be glued to the Royal Wedding. At exactly midday (GMT) the wedding service will start and the Dean of Windsor, the Rt Revd. David Conner, will conduct the ceremony. Directly after the ceremony at 1.00pm (GMT) the newlyweds will leave the chapel and parade around Windsor in a horse-drawn carriage, and the mass celebrations will begin.
The whole ceremony and celebrations will be streamed around the world and a global audience of millions and millions will tune in.
If you are planning to tune in whilst in Croatia you have a few options.
If you have satellite TV, then the BBC will be dedicating a full-day to the wedding as well as a whole host of international channels. And in Croatia the terrestrial TV station Nova TV will also broadcast the wedding from 11.30am to 3.15pm, or a total of 225 minutes of the Royal Wedding. In fact, the channel will produce a special show around the event of the year. “As the wedding approaches, preparations are getting more intense. Every day we inform about news and follow each step of the future bride. We will have experts in the studio who will comment on the guests, dress combinations, the wedding dress we can all wait to see, the significance of the royal family through history and many other interesting things,” commented Valentine Baus, a journalist of the news program Nova TV. The wedding will also be streamed live online through various providers, so you could even watch it on your phone on the beach.
And the Royal Wedding will not only fill the screens of bars and restaurants throughout the UK but also in Croatia. UK tourists looking to catch a glimpse of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be able to go into most eateries and watering holes in the country and see the action live. Just remember that the UK is one hour behind Croatia, so don’t be late or early.
