Where to watch the Royal Wedding!

It's here! The Royal Wedding is this Saturday 19th May, at 12pm (obviously tune in earlier to catch some celebrity guest arrivals & dress speculation). Prince Harry will marry Meghan Markle at St George's Chapel in Windsor, but you can watch the whole thing here in Norwich. Here's a list of the places showing the Royal Wedding, in Norwich and Norfolk:

P.S. If you're watching the wedding at home it IS okay to wear a fascinator and pyjamas at the same time
