If you’re not heading to London on 29th April to watch the Royal Wedding and are worried that you might miss out on key events fear not. Sky News has announced its plans for their coverage of the wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. In short, it will be EVERYWHERE!
Hosted by former GMTV presenter Eamonn Holmes, Sky News’ coverage will start from 6am and will bring all the regal glory of the day top viewers across multiple platforms throughout the day. From a specially built studio outside Buckingham Palace, Eamonn will be joined by Royal Correspondent Sarah Huges who will be talking to some of the millions of well-wishers that are expected to line the streets in hope of a glimpse of bride Kate and groom William.
Making sure you don’t miss a thing, there will be live coverage from Westminster Abbey – where the world will be able to catch the first glimpse of the couple as man and wife – as well as vox pops from selected locations across the country, including St Andrews, where the royal love story began.
Sky News is also bringing the wedding to iPad owners, allowing for users to rewind the live service as and when they want, and as well as video highlights – this will also be available for iPhone and Android users.
Then there is the Your Royal Wedding initiative. The news producer is asking viewers to send their experiences of the Royal Wedding via video which will form an hour long programme of user generated content that will be shown at 9pm on the evening of the wedding.
The event of the year is expected to attract large audiences, with BBC, ITV and Sky all competing for viewers. BBC’s team of correspondents will be headed up by Huw Edwards while ITV has announced Julie Etchinham will co-present their coverage with Philip Schofield.
