POLL: When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wed, will you be watching?

The wedding is planned for noon local time, which means 4 a.m. in Victoria, B.C..

Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle are set to wed on May 19 at Windsor Castle.

For those that can’t make it over to England, there are a few events planned around Victoria – though the timing of the events will separate the diehard fans from those with just an interest.


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will tie the knot inside the 15th-century St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The wedding is planned for noon local time, which means 4 a.m. in Victoria, B.C..

The Union Club in downtown Victoria is hosting a buffet breakfast from 3 a.m. to 5 a.m. with a special dress code and big screens streaming the wedding.

The all-you-can-eat buffet is $55 for members. Non-members looking to attend can book through the Royal Commonwealth Society at 778-679-9331 or online.

If breakfast in the middle of the night doesn’t tickle your fancy, the Fairmont Empress is running a special royal tea menu for the month of May and will be screening the royal wedding all day on May 19 in the Q Bar. They are also featuring some special cocktails during wedding week.
