    It's like the Super Bowl, let me tell you. This event seems to equal most sporting events in clout. Since America is so enamored with the Royal Family and everything that they do, I found an article that will help "get us to the church on time."Also, I'd like to get a discussion going. Why are Americans so interested in an event that pertains to a country and a family we fought not to belong to or care about? I've seen American gals wear fancy hats to celebrate holidays pertaining to the Royal Family. It just strikes me as odd.

    For those wondering, it all starts Saturday, May 19. The ceremony begins at noon London time, meaning 7 am ET/4 am PT. To add more to the comparison with it and a major sporting event, it has a preshow as well. CBS’s coverage starts at 4 am, and a preshow will be hosted live at Windsor Castle at 4:30 am ET. ABC's coverage doesn't start until 5 am ET, with Good Morning America's Robin Roberts and World News Tonight's David Muir. PBS and BBC both will cover the wedding as well. HBO will air The Royal Wedding Live With Cord and Tish! at 7:30 am ET.

    So there you have it. Feel free to post other links to ways of watching and streaming the Royal Wedding. Why do you think we are so fascinated with events such as this one?

    I've never understood it either. And believe it or not.... The wedding will also be screened in nearly 200 theaters in the U.S.. It will be titled as 'Harry & Meghan: The Royal Wedding', and will show on May 19th.

    Yeah, that's just so strange to me. I guess America seems disconnected from kings/queens and courts, and all that bru ha ha. I guess we just want a taste of Disney style living.

    High profile pageantry. Definitely a big audience for that. Count me out. Maybe it's also still in our DNA to droll over royalty.. I don't get it either.
