If you want to watch the royal wedding live, you’d better set your alarm. CBS, for example, will start its coverage at 4am Eastern Saturday, but think Super Bowl pregame show, because the wedding won’t really start until 6:30am. That's when Prince Harry will join brother Prince William at Windsor Castle, in St. George’s Chapel, prior to the arrival of bride-to-be Meghan Markle. NBC starts its coverage at 4:30am and ABC at 5am, notes CNN, while all the usual suspects on cable will be broadcasting and live-streaming as well.

For a lighter touch, Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon will be covering as "Cord and Tish" on HBO, starting at 7:30am, per the Hollywood Reporter. Meanwhile, Harry and William greeted well-wishers with a surprise walkabout outside Windsor Castle on Friday, reports the BBC. So how is Harry feeling? "Relaxed, of course," he said as he was re-entering the castle. (Charles will be walking Meghan Markle down the aisle.)
