Set your alarms, folks, because it’s going to be an early morning.
That being said, we may as well have a little fun with it, right? And there’s no better time to purchase your first fascinator and gather your friends together for a spot of tea than in the wee morning hours of Saturday, May 19.
The highly-anticipated Royal Wedding — can you even remember a time when people weren’t talking about it? — takes place at noon (Western European Time) at St. George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle.
However, that leaves us Canuck commoners with a blurry-eyed wakeup call. Due to the different time zone, the festivities will kick off at 7 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time) or 4 a.m. (Pacific Standard Time).
