Just when you thought royal wedding season was over, the British monarchy has another matrimonial event just days away.
The Queen’s granddaughter Princess Eugenie is marrying Jack Brooksbank on Friday, October 12 in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle – the same place Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot earlier this year.
The Dean of Windsor will conduct the ceremony that officially begins at 8 p.m. (AET) and should last for about an hour. Following the service, the couple will make a short carriage procession around Windsor, which will offer some members of the public a glimpse of the newly married couple.
1,200 members of the public managed to secure an invite to the wedding after a ballot was released in August.
The Queen will then host a private reception for friends and family at Windsor Castle before the newlyweds make their way to Windsor Lodge for a second reception hosted by the Duke and Duchess of York (Princess Eugenie’s parents).
What time does it start where I am?
Live coverage on most channels will begin up to a couple of hours before the official start time of the wedding so that viewers can watch the arrival of guests, the royal family, and the bride and groom.
For instance, in the UK, cameras will start rolling from 9.25 a.m. until 12.30 p.m. even though the ceremony inside the chapel will not officially begin until 11 a.m.
However, for the ceremony itself, here’s what time the royal wedding will start in major cities across different time zones on Friday, October 12:
- London (BST) 11 a.m.
- Paris (CEST): 12 p.m.
- Moscow (MSK): 1 p.m.
- Singapore (SST): 6 p.m.

How can I watch it?

Meanwhile, the BBC will host highlights of the ceremony later that day after deciding not to run the wedding in full.
ITV will also broadcast a highlights reel under the title “The Royal Wedding: A Family Celebration” at 8 p.m. on Saturday.
TLC announced last Thursday that it would broadcast Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding live, in full. US fans will have to get up early if they want to catch the nuptials, though, as coverage will start at 4.25 a.m. (ET).
The network told Harper’s Bazaar that the West Coast would be on a standard three-hour tape delay, meaning it will also air at 4.25 a.m. in that time zone (PT).
Channel 7 will air the wedding live at 8 p.m. (SST), according to New Idea. You can also stream it on 7PLUS.
New Zealand broadcasters have yet to announce any plans for coverage.
Viewers in the US can also use the TLC Go app to stream the event live.
