you ♪ ♪ no one else understands me ♪ our love is mounding ♪ i couldn't live without your love ♪ ♪ now i know you're really mine ♪ ♪ get to have you all the time
7:01 pm
love gives union true meaning. it illuminates the path. it wants us to compromise, communicate and laugh. it wants us to elevate, appreciate without pride. love is oblivious to the outside. even with an audience of millions, even when that love bears immortal significance, all of this is met with cordial indifference by the two people at the heart of it, two individuals when they started it becoming two halves of one partnership. such is the beauty of union. such is the beauty of union. ♪ ♪
7:02 pm
good morning and welcome to royal windsor. the big day has finally arrived. here on the bbc you won't miss a moment. >> you certainly will not. first things first, thanks to george for that wonderful rendition for the beautiful of union. george is back a little later. >> of course, amid all this grandeur and the crowds and the excitement is why we're here today, to celebrate the love between his royal highness, prince henry of wales, otherwise known as prince harry and ms. meghan markle. six months after they announced their engagement will marry in the beautiful setting of st. george's chapel here at windsor castle, a place that the royal family likes to call home. >> what a day for it. look at that shot. >> incredible. >> beautiful. >> yes indeed, when her majesty says home james, this is what
7:03 pm
she means. this is the world's oldest inhabited castle. >> we've pretty up got everything covered at the bbc here indeed. the ceremony, the carriage procession, yes, the wedding and more. we are here on our sofa. stay with us throughout the day on yours. of course ours and everyone's full attention is going to be on the bride and groom. prince harry who is sixth in line to the throne and meghan markle, an american actor and humanitarian campaigner. so where are the couple of the moment right now? prince harry is staying where coworth park and yesterday afternoon he and his brother, prince william, the best man, did something rather fabulous. a little walk-about, much to everybody's delight and surprise, among the crowds who were out on the pavement all day yesterday in the sunshine in windsor. they didn't know they were going to get that. delighted. very good weekend, no front
7:04 pm
teeth or not. there we go. and meghan has been staying at cliveden house. there she is. she arrived yesterday evening with her mother, doria ragland, and they both, it must be said, cut quite the dash. if that was the dress for just going into the hotel, honest to goodness. and both the mother of the bride and the bride-to-be looking, it has to be said, incredibly relaxed. meghan is close to her mother and in an interesting break from tradition doria is going to accompany her daughter today as she travels from cliveden to windsor castle. we hope to have live pictures of that coming up a little later. it was yesterday that the groom's father, the prince of wales is then going to walk the bride down the aisle. >> as you might be able to see already huge crowds gathering here at windsor. the doors to the crowds opened a couple of moments ago. it's estimated that 1.9 billion
7:05 pm
people will be tuning in. >> and i really wish you hadn't said that. >> as we take this global conversation on youtube, so how are you celebrating. for me, charles and diana, it was all about the street party. any street partying happening today, if you made any royal wedding food, are you getting married today, are you annoyed about that? do you know another harry and meghan getting married, we want to hear from you using the #royalweddingbbc1 and we'll take a look at how your celebrations are going. >> the doors to st. george's chapel won't be opened until 9:30. that's when the 600-odd guests are allowed to find their seats. so poised, ready and waiting for that moment with really a cracking view of the castle is our colleague, hugh edwards. >> look at this, it's a pretty wonderful view. good morning, everyone.
7:06 pm
of course this is one of the most iconic views in the world. there you have the round tower of windsor castle, the background, it dominates the landscape for miles around. it's a view familiar to many millions of people around the world. make no mistake, as you've just underlined, it is a global event with a massive global audience, focusing on windsor. we have some of the best seats in the house from our great position. we're kind of on the roof of the guard room of windsor castle and overlooking what's known as the lower ward of the castle. this is where we can see people gathering already. those people especially chosen to be inside the grounds today, lucky people. they're just starting to settle down. the picnic baskets are there, the deck chairs and the blankets too. i don't think they'll need a blanket. it's very, very warm already at just 9:00. it's going to be a very
7:07 pm
memorable day for all of them. the couple really wanted members of the public, young and old, to be a part of these celebrations. there are more than 2.5,000 people invited inside the grounds. they will get the chance of course to see the bride and groom. all the chapel guests making their way to the chapel later. we'll be talking to some of them. on the far side of the lower ward, just take a look. just take in the scene. glorious blue sky and a glorious piece of british architecture, st. george's chapel. the doors opening, as we know now, at half past 9, and then we'll see for the first time what the florist, the very talented florists have been doing inside. timing, let's talk about timing, what's the day look like. the bride will start the journey to windsor leaving cliveden house at ten past 11. most of the wedding guests, district instructions to be in their seats by 11:15. members of the royal family
7:08 pm
start arriving at galilee entrance at about 25 past 11. prince harry and best man duke of cambridge are arriving at the great west door, the main door of the chapel at about 20 to 12. and then the big moment, the moment we're all waiting for when the bride will arrive with the bridesmaids and page boys, ten of them and then the service can begin. in around 20 minutes or so wedding guests will start to arrive. nothing official released on the guest list but there are some pretty big names on it and we'll expect to see some familiar faces, close friends from the world of entertainment, sports and music, people from charities and organizations that the couple supports so a very broad mix of people. covering the comings and going from their prime positions just a few yards away from me, anita and dore. >> good morning. >> we feel honored to be on the
7:09 pm
ground alongside st. george's chapel for what is going to be an extraordinary day. >> we are with two and a half house of the luckiest people in britain. i'm going to be talking to some of the v.i.p. guests, friends of meghan and harry. >> i'll be here for the duration of the morning talking to some of the specially invited guests asking them what it means to be here. what's very exciting is they will have the first sight of the newly married couple when they come out of st. george's chapel. it's going to be a moment. >> but not as big as seeing the dress or the kiss. >> so many questions. they'll be answered very soon. >> stay tuned for more of prince harry and meghan markle's royal wedding on bbc america.

7:15 pm
briefly to you, page six in new york, "the new york post," recorded as fact that it was stella mccartney which seems a curveball. she's not done brightal before. there's been so much speculation that i think a surprise is probably on the way in some form. >> you think so? >> we were talking yesterday about roland mouret possibly being but her turning up wearing roland -- >> that dark dress was stunning. >> it was beautiful. i don't know if that's a clue that that's what it is or it's categorically not. >> i think it's a clue that it's not. >> yeah. it's a nod surely. >> she's saying one of my favorite designers, here i am. >> christopher bailey still on the watch list. >> burberry. >> yes. as sort of like the grand swan song before leaving the label at the end of the year. >> they've kept it tight. they've done a good job. still a big surprise. >> i'm into this now. we'll know for sure what dress
7:16 pm
meghan is wearing when we see her for the first time, but now the bride and her mother are holed up in their cliveden house as our reporter is there. has she spotted the nearest hit and can give us a vital clue of the dress. >> nothing yet i'm afraid but i promise you i'm keeping my eyes peeled and i'll report back as soon as i see anything. now, i feel so lucky to be here because this is where meghan and her mum will be departing from in just under two hours' time. now, it's a beautiful day and this is a beautiful play to spend the last night before your wedding. we asked around. the hotel itself sits just above the river thames. it's fitting too because it was once home to an earl, three countesses, two dukes and the prince of wales, not at the same time but interestingly the
7:17 pm
estate was bought by a wealthy american. over the years it's hosted film stars, world leaders, the likes of winston churchill and gandhi but today it's the place where a mother and daughter have just spent a final night together before meghan markle's life changes forever. >> thank you. speaking of dresses, that one is a cracker. now, royal weddings normally get a lot of attention from arnold the world but in this case with one being an american actor, things have gone atmospheric, the biggest royal event that windsor has ever seen. ♪ >> we are so excited to be able to be here because it's such a historic event not only for the u.k. but also for the world. >> everywhere i look around i see people outside trying to get the best possible spot, hotel rooms that they've rented,
7:18 pm
publishes that they've rented. every nook and crannie in that town has been rented by us, the media. >> we're covering the royal wedding for cbs this morning. we're in a bathroom in the hotel. we've got our sink which is a storage area, our setup is built on top of the bathtub, and the toilet is just for storage because we can't close the door all the way. >> us french people, we're so enthusiastic about this wedding. we're doing a special edition actually the whole day from 6:00 a.m. to midnight. so that proves that we're really into it even though we're french. >> it's beyond exciting for us, especially for us in los angeles that we have a hometown girl that's going to marry into the royal family. blows the mind. >> have we had a royal wedding in canada, no. hockey players get married, but we still follow what's happening. it still matters. they still know all the news and they for sure will be watching on saturday. >> australians have always been interested in the royal family.
7:19 pm
keep in mind the queen is the queen of australia as well. it's on primetime on a saturday night so it's the perfect time for everyone to have a barbecue during the day and then settle in for a great night of watching the royal wedding from here in windsor. >> you can hear any language you can imagine from all over the world. you hear them speaking arabic, portuguese, spanish, whatever, and you think, whoa, this really turned into a big tv studio, windsor. it's super cool. >> announcer: stay tuned for more of the royal wedding on bbc america. our dad was in the hospital. because of smoking. but we still had to have a cigarette. had to.

7:24 pm
world. >> the world press out in force but with meghan having grown up in los angeles the interest is bonkers and no doubt they'll be shrieking and hollering and high fiving and hopefully richard will be able to control himself for the duration of this report. >> yes, welcome to santa monica. welcome to los angeles. union jack colors. as you've explained, this is meghan's hometown. this wedding is a huge event here. it is quarter past 1 in the morning. this is a city that does not stay up late and yet everywhere from downtown los angeles to malibu there's watch parties happening. this is one of the main ones and as well as the enthusiasts, the people in union jack colors, debbie joins me. debbie was the principal, the head of meghan's primary school. she went there for nine years and not all pupils, i guess,
7:25 pm
stand out. you can't remember everyone that goes through your school, debbie, but meghan made a real impact. >> absolutely. meghan was always not only charming but poised and academically advanced. giving of herself, willing to take her free periods and go to the preschool and help with younger children. always involved in community projects whether in school or outside of school with her brownie troop. very remarkable young woman. >> the school you go to when you're that young, she was there from 3 to 12, the atmosphere and culture and teachers you encounter and the head teachers have a big impact on who you become. as you watch her marry today will you feel personal pride or will you feel emotional? >> i'm very proud of all the teachers that had a part in meghan's growth and hollywood
7:26 pm
schoolhouse and especially her social studies teacher. i feel heartfelt with pride at meghan finding her match and all the wonderful things her and prince harry are going to do in their humanitarian projects. >> good to see you. stay with us for the big event. and thank you. >> thank you. >> richard, thanks so much. i'm glad that at least two people are not so well refreshed because the people in the background -- >> the teacher was refreshed. >> for the last five days it's been really, really busy. 120,000 people are expected in the beautiful town of windsor today. somewhere in amongst the throng on the long walk is alex jones. >> morning. i'm delighted to be among thousands of well wishers.
7:27 pm
the excitement is tangible. we're hoping to see a glimpse of meghan pass here in the car and then of course the newlyweds in the carriage this afternoon as they come past and hopefully give us a wave. people have gone to extraordinary lengths to get the best view. chantel has come out with two young daughters and another baby on board. that's commitment. >> we like it, we like the royal family. >> you have a connection to them. >> we do. my husband is in the military and he escorted prince william to his wedding. >> did the beast keep you warm last night? excellent, good girl. we've got the fabulous looking stephanie all the way from washington, everybody.

7:28 pm
it could have been me. >> it could have been stephanie. you've got a link to harry as well, haven't you? >> you know what, indirectly, but yes. through invictus. i work for the united states army and i had an opportunity to work on his invictus games when he brought the games to the united states, orlando, in 2016. i had an opportunity to work the event and see harry on a daily basis and i had an opportunity to meet him and spend some time around him. >> he's a nice guy. >> he's amazing. >> have a great day. it's like the wedding reception before the reception. we have food, drink, great atmosphere. we're having a whale of a time. >> announcer: stay tuned for more of the royal wedding on bbc america. we're family. we'd do anything for each other.

(music playing) it's been absolute pleasure and a privilege.
7:33 pm
>> yeah, exactly. pretty surprised to get an invite if i'm honest. great to be here. i think the weather is fantastic and the support and crowd already is brilliant. >> j.j., you spent a lot of time with him. how is he behind the camera? >> um, i always say this, he's brilliant on the camera and he comes across as a lovely bloke and he's even nicer in real life which is remarkable considering when you look at the sort of environment he comes from and the fanfare that surrounds him, to have a normal functioning human being. i think a big part of that comes from his service in the military. really i see him as another captain from the army. >> i did a battle of the british show with him in 2015 and he came down and we were doing a fly-pass and the two injured veterans were going to go with him in the three main planes. on the morning one of the planes just wasn't air worthy and he gave up his seat and he should have given up his seat and the fact that he did says a lot.
7:34 pm
you spent a lot of time with him. >> that's entirely him. if i'm completely honest, i've never seen him do anything for himself. this is the first time where the occasion has been about him but at the same time he's giving it to all the people. that's the way he is. >> it's really about meghan. >> well, that's true. >> a lot of us, i'm sorry, but i'm a real rugby union girl -- >> that's okay. forgive you. >> a lot of us don't necessarily know quite so much about the prince's association with rugby league. how involved is he? >> it's still quite fresh. it's only been over the last 12 months he's become a patron. he's been involved on a couple of occasions and has bee absolutely fantastic. one was an event where he was in and around hundreds of boys and girls. he joined in, had a big smile on his face and was passionate about being there. the second occasion was with our english team, men's team. he came and met them in a private meeting and was
7:35 pm
brilliant, very down to earth, passionate about our sport and about our country which is great. >> especially with league obviously and union, you go into those dressing rooms or whatever, you've got to know your stuff before you walk in there. >> he did. he had clearly done his research and i'm sure in the not too distant future at the international games, i know what a support he is of union but i think throughout the combination of both it's really special for him and great to have him involved with us. >> j.j., you've spent time with him in the military. has he talked to you about how important that period was for him? it's pretty obvious to see. >> it's the most wonderful thing about being with him is that ultimately we've had very similar experiences. we both served ten years in the military together. he ultimately left perhaps not even on terms that he wanted to, particularly his first tour in afghanistan. so i know that through his work with the invictus games, just
7:36 pm
like me, it's itching a scratch. it's an opportunity to get back in the atmosphere of it and really sort of relish in the fact that he's kind of with the boys basically. >> when we hear him talk about inct, it's very interesting, thers something about it that is so utterly personal. i'm sure when he's talking to you it's personal but when he's on the public stage, there's something that he imparts. you can almost hear and feel the emotion. it's very deep inside of him. >> listen, the invictus games has changed my life in ways i could never have expected and ultimately that's all because of him. great team together, lots of people behind the scenes but he was the guy who said we're doing this in 8 months' time, 2014, and he drove it because of his passion because he lives and breathes it. >> do you think it took that person of importance driving it? >> i think it might have happened in time but it would have happened too late. the need was there and it needed to happen but also the need to get it right. it needed to be the magic that
7:37 pm
is invictus. nobody really knew what that was. he saw it before we saw it. >> nice to talk to you. have a great time at the wedding. there's lots happening and hugh is going to tell us a bit more. over to hugh edwards. >> thank you very much. yes, just looking at my watch and we are within a few minutes of the doors of st. george's chapel opening. and i just think this is the moment we want to kind of take in the scene and to see what's been going on inside st. george's chapel over the last couple of days. we've spent a couple of days here talking to lots of those people who have been working inside the chapel. outside we're familiar with this scene now. it's a glorious scene in windsor. philippa craddock is the floor -- florist chosen about harry and meghan to decorate the chapel itself. we have the south door opening on this royal wedding day. it's the moment that lots of
7:38 pm
people now will be given the signal to come to the chapel itself and look at the decorations. what philippa craddock and the team have done over the past couple of days is decorate the chapel with all kinds of locally sourced foliage. it really is a kind of flowing, glorious look, a kind of cascade of flowers and greenery. lots of roses, lots of blue lily of the valley, fox gloves. trees, beech and birch as well as an arch way over that south door. let me tell you, there's more to come because elsewhere in st. george's chapel you'll see that this display is truly on an epic scale. take a look at this. i can't tell you how beautiful it is and indeed the aroma when you go into the chapel itself because these roses are glorious, absolutely glorious.
7:39 pm
a little explanation of what we're looking at here, that section of the chapel, because the chapel is split into two halves if you like. both decorated richly. one a little more than the other. this is the nave, the big open space at the west end of st. george's chapel. there you have the organ screen. you can see the case work on each side. beyond that, the much more intimate and medieval setting of the choir. this is where you have the heart of the ritual, life of the knights, the knights of the garter, this is where they hold their service. this is where they have their own seats in the choir. this is where you have the medieval display of carpentry and banners right at the heart of this chivalrous order. how powerful an impression this creates. this is the setting for today's wedding service here at windsor.
7:40 pm
we're looking at the choir. this is where the royal family will take their seats. this is where the guests on both sides, bride and groom side, will be taking their seats a little later on. there will be some very familiar faces there on either side, not just members of the royal family but other essentially invited guests too. i'm not going to spoil the surprise at this stage. we'll see them arriving in a short while. that is the choir. back in the nave we have this glorious decoration that we were talking about. i think that's going to be one of the prime features of the day. look at that window at the far end, the west end. just take in that scene. that is one of the biggest medieval windows in the world. you have all of this floral display and kind of free-flowing look to it. it's a kind of -- i don't know. it's a blend if you like, this
7:41 pm
medieval, gothic architecture with these displays that are there and it's been done i think with a touch of genius. philippa and the team chatting to them late last night. i asked them when they were wrapping up last night and they said actually it will be 5:02 in the morning. that's the result. by the way, when you see the west door a little later on where the bride will arrive, that is, if anything, even more impressive. there you have the west door there just tucked underneath the great medieval west window. so all of that to come but just a taste for you of the beauty and the glory of st. george's chapel in windsor, the scene of today's wedding service. >> thanks, hugh. thanks very much. once intimate and grand but at the same time it's quite a building. i was speaking to a lovely couple of ladies on thursday, sarah and vanessa. they were talking about -- it's called the choir where the royal family will be sitting. i said it looks so splendid.
7:42 pm
they found a special polish to do the pews with. vanessa who was doing the carpets, i said that looks like a hard job and she said it's a beautiful place to be cleaning. they have worked so hard. they've put their heart and soul into that place. >> stunning, isn't it? >> absolutely beautiful. >> stay tuned for more of prince harry and meghan markle's wedding on bbc america. picking the right style takes time. one picky customer shouldn't take all your time. need something printed?

and i fell into her life. >> their paths crossed in 2016 when a mutual friend suggested a blind date. meghan had only one concern. >> i had one question. i said, is he nice? because if he one kind it didn't seem like it would make sense so we went and had a -- met for a drink. >> i was beautifully surprised when i walked into that room and saw her and there she was sitting there. i was like, okay, i'm really going to have to up my game. >> i think very quickly into that we said, well what are we doing tomorrow? we should meet again. >> we should meet again and it was like, we need to get the diaries out and figure out how to make this work because i was off to africa and she was working and we said where's the gap. the gap happened to be the perfect place. i managed to persuade her to visit me in botswana and we camped out. she joined me for five days out there which was fantastic and then we were really by ourselves
7:48 pm
which was crucial to me to make sure that we had a chance to get to know each other. >> the family has been great and we had a really nice time getting to know them and progressively helping me feel a part of not just the institution but also part of the family. >> harry and meghan chose the invictus games in toronto for their first official appearance together, and just two months later at harry's cottage in kensington palace, he popped the question. >> it with was so sweet and natural and very romantic. he got on one knee. >> the ring is yellow gold and little diamonds on the side are from my mother's jewelry collection. to make sure she's with us on this crazy journey together. >> it's beautiful. and he designed it. it's incredible. >> both of us have passions for wanting to make change, change for good. >> it was one of the first things we started talking about when we met, just the different things that we wanted to do in
7:49 pm
the world. >> i hope to try and have as much impact for all the things that we care about as much as possible. >> i'm very excited about that. >> whatever we have to tackle together or individually or us together as a team. i think she's capable. >> so nicely said, isn't it? >> she is capable of anything. >> see when i watch, i get a little bit of one of those. i'm not going to do it because we're live on tv and that would be terrible. we're joined by george the poet. he opened the show with his wonderful poem written especially for us. welcome again. it's very nice to have you here. >> good to be here. >> it was sort of remarkable to have you talking about a modern love story that the eyes of the world are upon in that very ancient place. what was it like to read your work, to proclaim your work in such a space? >> it's surreal. it's history. very excited.
7:50 pm
it's got a 21st century spin on it. i'm very excited to be a part of it. >> we opened the show with it and i said, come on, i can't start the show with that. it's going to get me there. >> here's the thing, it's the first time you were happy with your performance? >> i am. >> you should be. >> there's probably no subject that's written more about than love. when you were commissioned to write that, where do you begin? >> so i have to remove myself from it. i had to think about what it meant first of all to the two individuals getting together and secondly to the world because it is an event of international significance so i suppose love obviously is at the core of it had and you just got to be a bit respectful and understanding of what's happening. >> is that the kind of thing, did you take advice from anyone or do you just go, you know what, i'm going to go away -- i
7:51 pm
mean, how long does it take you? are you the kind of guy that would -- would that take you half-an-hour or months? >> that's the good question. the majority of the work for me is the thinking. it's a question of my personal experience and my understanding and then just trying to create something that -- >> people think you're crazy. >> i'm talking to myself. been doing it since i was 15. >> there's also a very interesting aspect which is the we go to poetry at intimate times in our lives, very intimate times in our lives. a lot of people may not be today but might read a poem at a wedding or funeral service. poetry means different things to different people but it's always there when we're trying to sum up important emotions. poetry gets to the sentiment of our experience. i just released my podcast and the poetry that's covered in that is so different from what
7:52 pm
is happening here but at the same time its about that universal human experience. it's a beautiful thing. >> we'll give you that plug incidentally. that was a big plug. everybody at homgo. >> he can plug what he likes. >> poetry is giving voice to the feelings that people have in their head but haven't always been able to articulate. >> that's it. that's that universal thing that we all know. the language of it. >> you spent time with harry. >> yeah. >> what was it like and how did you find him? >> going back into 2015 was amazing. i have recently been made ambassador of harry's charity with prince seeiso of length owosso and it's all about providing social support for young people with hiv. >> we were looking at them. what do you make of all of this? it's jaw dropping, isn't it? >> it is. but it's investment. it's an investment of a people
7:53 pm
in their identity. this is symbolic to so many people around the world. it's beautiful. >> don't you find, today in particular, to a degree in 2011 as well, but there seems a modernity to this as well, so much moving in the royal family in whatever way you want to describe it. >> definitely what harry and meghan represent and the things that are important to them and what they've demonstrated about their cakes throughout their public lives. so just off the back of that alone it definitely is stepping into the future. >> do you think it's -- >> some words to that. >> do you think it's important for the royal family and for britain that we are welcoming in a biracial member of the royal family right into the heart of the establishment? is that important to you? >> i think it is a big symbolic step. obviously we all know that we're all equal either way but what it
7:54 pm
means to other people that thought once impossible, that is unprecedented. >> thank you. >> so nice to talk to you. >> take it with you wherever you go. >> that's my advice. >> announcer: stay tuned for more of prince harry and meghan markle's royal wedding on bbc america. camping with my daughters was more than just a weekend. it was our time to unplug and be together. with my bladder leakage, i'm not doing that anymore. when i went hiking with the other product, it just didn't fit right and i was always readjusting it. so, now our camping trips are their camping s. but with new sizes of depend fit-flex, it feels like it was made for me. i'm ready to get back our time together. introducing more sizes for better comfort. new depend fit-flex underwear is guaranteed to be your best fit. get a free sample at depend.com new depend fit-flex underwear is guaranteed to be your best fit. now you're both doing it startethis for himcussion. for all he's done for you. at pnc, we're here to help you make a plan today

7:59 pm
>> and david beckham is still to come. >> i know. i know. >> it could get worse for you. >> it could get embarrassing. >> tell us about the community lunch. >> i started it a couple of years ago and we decided that we wanted to do something for people that may be on their own for christmas and it's been a success ever since. a traditional christmas dinner. it's incredible. >> it sounds a bit strange talking about christmas when it's about 30 degrees. make sure that you keep enjoying it. more to come. and these guys were at buckingham palace earlier in the week so they like mingling with royalty. but you had the duke and duchess of cambridge at your foundation earlier this year. >> we did. in january. it was a really, really interesting day where they spoke to many young people about the challenges of society but what we saw was a real connection between what their ambitions are to help young people and our
8:00 pm
work and the work of hundreds of charities across the u.k. >> you offered them a job, didn't you? >> i did. i'm still waiting to hear. i'll be following that up for sure. >> today could be the day. >> tell us because it's amazing for everybody to be here, to get the invitation is a very special occasion, but for you it was a bit uncertain. you weren't sure what you had received. >> i have to say, i'm a responsible citizen but i did think for a while that i had finally been caught up with. it turned out to be an invitation. and i think to get an invitation like this goes to show the important of youth work. up and down the u.k. young people have many challenges and if we can use this opportunity to raise the profile of investing in young people that's great. >> amazing. i know this guy has been doing his work for 20 years. you must be incredibly proud. all four of you look fantastic. enjoy the day. >> thank you. >> how can you not? it's all set up. ceremony to come.
8:01 pm
>> you wanted a-list, we're going to give you a-list. you are looking at edris elba there with his fiancee magnificently dressed. am i allowed to say gucci? behind him we have the shy and retiring oprah winfrey and what a hat she's got. you are sitting next to us and i'll so glad you are because this is an absolute feet of ast of summer wedding fashion. >> i was reading this morning we were going to be expecting the americans to be conservative with their hats. oprah has shown that it's fantastic. >> suck on that. actually, hats are very, very difficult. women see hats in an invitation and they automatically think oh no. there's another beautiful one. absolutely beautiful. earl spencer and his wife. that is not really a summer color but a beautiful color. >> i predict a lot of jewel colors actually. they have been coming through to the spring and summer. >> so magnificent.
8:02 pm
so the ladies, their instruction on the embossed invitation that dropped through the letter box was day dress and hat. so tell me, what constitutes a day dress? >> that's the thing. it's a broad term, isn't it? for a royal wedding the protocol is sort of like very demure, very covered. you can be sleeveless as i am today. i checked. but i think going into the church you need something covering the arms so i think all of these ladies have done themselves proud there. i think knee length is generally considered the best option, knee or below. >> yeah. >> if it says hat, does that mean hats are a given? >> you absolutely have to wear a hat. >> at the last wedding someone didn't wear a hat and everyone clutched. so maybe we'll see an uncovered head but you'd want to not be the one that got the queen's evil eye. >> and the earl and countess of
8:03 pm
wessex, when they had their wedding it was evening and they said no hats. there is something about an instruction like that, day dress and hats, that tells you that you are having to step up to the mark. >> the hat really makes the difference, doesn't it? the hat completely changes the formality of an outfit. how often do you get to get dress up so much in that way? i'd be embracing it. i like the clarity of a dress code like that that tells you wear a hat so you know. >> earl spencer was looking terribly happy and relaxed because of course he's there for his nephew. >> and the children are there. >> yeah. >> announcer: stay tuned for more of prince harry and meghan markle's royal wedding on bbc america. so allstate is giving us money back on our bill. well, that seems fair. we didn't use it. wish we got money back on gym memberships. get money back hilarious. with claim-free rewards. switching to allstate is worth it.

>> bride might be wearing. >> oh gosh, i can't wait until we actually know. >> we're pregnant with expectation. >> it seems to have that are rowed down to half a dozen names. >> it's narrowed but then it's broadened again. between me coming to see you earlier and going out and coming back in, now clare waight keller is apparently a huge name. >> who?
8:08 pm
>> clare waight keller for givenchy. >> givenchy is a french fashion house. would she choose a french fashion house? >> listen, i'm just telling you what the twitter is telling me. >> how does it work in terms of -- you get out and then you do 40 minutes or half-an-hour. is this sources or -- >> yes. talking to each other and reading each other's scuttlebutt. it's the most fun guessing game to be honest. >> i myself like an evidence based -- >> you're serious, so sorry. >> i wouldn't ever claim to be that. there's idris elba. they were giving me instruction, they had three choices, either to wear military regalia or to wear lounge suits or morning suits and i see of course if you wear a morning suit you can also
8:09 pm
wear a top hat but it seems that even the very top brass of the eper echelons of the british establish have chosen to leave them at home. >> perhaps it's inconsiderate in church to have that obscuring your view. >> let's get back to the dress. from what we know about the bride's fashion sensibility, obviously any designer is going to want to put their clothes on meghan markle because she makes everything look like a million bucks but who does she favor? >> this is the thing that's quite puzzling. i think her general style is very streamlined, very classic with little edgy twists like maybe a bit of skin, a suit with a pair of shorts with a suit. how do you marry that -- no pun intended -- with the interviews she's given. how we put those things together is intriguing. >> do we go back to what you told us last night? >> she has worn erdem on a few occasions. >> in my heart of hearts i think
8:10 pm
that's the one i would like to see. i think he would do the most superb, romantic wedding dress, how to figure her in all the right ways and have a bit of an edge. >> erdem sells very expensive dresses but he doesn't sell wedding dresses. >> no, he doesn't, but i think his style is made for that romantic -- the other lovely clue with erdem is he did a show last september where the inspiration was actually when the duke ellington met the queen. there's that lovely little royal clue there. >> he went through the royal archives. >> i'll ask a silly boy question. is there any chance that she could pick a designer that you simply haven't heard of? is there any way she could go so left field? >> i'm genuinely expecting some sort of major surprise. >> you are? >> yes. i think that's slightly terrifying possibility at this point, having to sort of like -- i'll be googling away if it is some designer we haven't heard of but i think that -- and she is known for looking for the brands and championing them and
8:11 pm
giving them that spotlight. so yes, that's a good point. >> thank you. >> there we're looking at james blount. i'm really looking at the lovely woman with james blount. what an absolutely spectacular outfit she is wearing. beautiful, fashion feast for those of us who are interested in the royal wedding. >> i'm a bit of a sucker for yellow. >> absolutely gorgeous, prim rose yellow hat. back to hugh who's got the view of views. >> thanks very much. we have got a pretty terrific view and i have to say we've been joined with a special guest today. achievements are being recognized, one of them, 9-year-old rudy jones who has been invited with his mom and dad. they're from west yorkshire. ali founded rudy's retreat, a charity that provides holidays for their children and families affected by cancer and other serious illnesses.
8:12 pm
you are both very warmly welcomed to the studio here which overlooks -- it's a pretty good view, isn't it? >> yes. >> before we do anything, i just want to see what happened when you got the news that you were coming here today. let's have a look. >> rudy is invited to the -- >> oh! >> i'm invited to prince harry's wedding? >> yeah. >> ahh! >> okay, rudy. you've stopped screaming now, okay, that's good. tell me about it, what's it like to be here? >> it's amazing because i've never been to like a royal place before. >> yeah. it's not a bad place to start, is it, ali? >> might as well start at the top. fantastic. >> you're right. i made the point to both of you really. you're being recognized really for what you've done. tell me a little bit about what the retreat has achieved. that's that been about?
8:13 pm
>> over the last -- we started the charity in 2011 and in the last few years we've helped about 500 families by giving them a respite holiday inn our carvans. it gives them a break. >> you've done fantastic work and that's why you're here and it's great that it's been recognized. come on, what's the day about for you? what are you going to do after this, watch what's going on? >> celebrity spot. >> we can give you a job, you can spot the celebs. >> yay. >> very good. shake hands, enjoy the day, all right? well done on everything. ali, fantastic work. >> thank you so much. >> enjoy the day. >> we will. thank you very much. >> thanks very much. >> announcer: stay tuned for more of the royal wedding on bbc america. picking the right style takes time. one picky customer shouldn't take all your time. need something printed? the business advisors at office depot can assist with exactly what your business needs to grow. get your coupon for 20% off services, technology and more

when meghan and prince harry spoke recently about their hopes for the future, the one thing they seem certain about, aside from their love from each other, was their desire to make a difference in the world, a deep rooted commitment to charity work in both their lives interestingly long before they were a couple. >> prince harry and meghan are now in partnership with the duke and duchess of cambridge and the fab four of patrons of the royal foundation. to tell us more about their work, the chief executive, david wiesman, who oversees the foundation and colin, all invited to the wedding and someone definitely has their hat. >> thank you. >> fabulous. lorraine, you head up the royal foundation as we've just been hearing. the fab four they've been christened in the press. they're not wrong, are they?
8:19 pm
four young people out into the world. what are you making of the fact that meghan is joining the team? >> it's wonderful that she's joining and wonderful that prince harry is marrying someone who is as committed to philanthropic work as he is. i think she will make a big difference. the whole point of the royal foundation is that we try and make an impact on difficult social problems, try and move the dial, change mind-sets, and you saw that with the heads together mental health work and the campaign that we had last year and the ongoing mental health work that we're doing now. >> she's obviously just coming into the family but from what you've seen of her so far, the press conference i saw, i think the energy was the thing that struck me the most. is that how you find her? >> fantastic energy and like the others, a real people person. so able to -- when we go on private visits, to sit down and talk to anybody and everybody on their level and really start to get under their skin about what is it that they're concerned about, how is it that we can
8:20 pm
make a difference and help to improve their lives. >> david, i think one of the things that people often wonder, they think, well yeah, these young royals are there for the camera and that's great and it brings publicity. what are they actually doing behind the scenes? so let me ask you, harry, what is he doing behind the scenes? >> i've been heading up the armed forces program since 2014 and i've worked with them on many, many different programs, specifically with prince harry on the endeavor fund, the invictus games and most recently with his work to do with the military and the mental health of the armed forces community. i can tell you it's not there for the cameras. the amount of hours they put in behind the scenes, in the meetings, driving the decisions, prince harry in particular, he's got a real visionary brain. he can see where he wants the project to go and he drives it forward. >> colin, tell us about where prince harry fits in. >> prince harry has been with us for ten years so we are a
8:21 pm
national charity specifically for children so our main cause really is to get children out of hospital, make sure they can be cared for at home and have everything they need to be cared for at home. we've grown a lot in that ten-year period and he's been behind a lot of that and pushed us forward in doing that. >> is there an instance where he met a child or a kid at one of your places and you would know this better than i but didn't the child tell him that he was waiting for the prince to turn up? >> you're never sure how children are going to react anyway as i'm sure you know. prince harry comes to the well child awards every year so he's met hundreds of families and children, some of them are here in the castle. very famous indent where prince harry had a whole conversation with someone who was 8 years old and he spent the whole time looking over his shoulder waiting for the prince in his gown and crown to arrive and
8:22 pm
didn't realize until afterwards that that was actually prince harry. >> that's great. >> one of the interesting things is that they are very, very approachable. members of the public do feel that they can talk to them. when i was on the train coming back with prince harry and meghan from nottingham, suddenly obviously the word got around so everybody who was working on the train was coming to either collect rubbish or whatever. they were all chatting to them and giving them congratulations, commenting on meghan's amazing teeth and telling prince harry how well he had done for himself. >> he does have that great smile. >> you can see yesterday. >> we wish you a wonderful day. have a great time. what a day it's going to be and what a day it is here in windsor. welcome, if you're just joining us on the bbc. we can look at st. george's chapel as the guests arrive. they have got the golden ticket. 600-odd people today fittering in that chapel for what will be
8:23 pm
a wedding unlike no other. this is not a state occasion so we're not seeing politicians, we're not seeing heads of state. we have seen a few cracking celebrities already and i think there are going to be more of them and everybody looks set for a superb occasion. let's head back out to alex jones who hopefully is going to surface, i recon, somewhere on the long walk. alex, are you there? >> i am. you know what, it is so lovely to chat to everybody and find out what inspired them and captures their imagination and brought them here this morning. for some people it's all about the outfit. we've got jack here. oh hello. and rosie. now, it's all about the clothes for you, isn't it, zach? prince harry, what do you expect him to wear? hello, rosie. >> a shirt and clothes.
8:24 pm
>> i do hope he's wearing a shirt because it would be rather awkward otherwise. >> and a bow tie. >> a bow tie, good. maybe we can manage that. >> and a young meghan yourself, looking gorgeous. what three things do you expect to see on the dress? >> lace, sleeveless and a long vale. >> a long vail, i think we can manage that. c.j. and jimmy lee, we saw them last night. they're completely transformed. is it living up to your expectations? >> beyond excited, so thrilling. >> what moment are you looking forward to. >> waving at them. >> get your camera phones ready. can we have a twirl? there you are. look at this. i mean, there are some dapper people, no doubt, in st. george's chapel, but i think all the crowds here have turned up pretty well too. back to you.

i'm delighted to say, is prince seeiso of lesotho. back in 2006 set up the charity with prince harry. good to have you with us. >> wonderful to see you again. >> we chatted seven years ago in a different location but on a similar day. >> similar day, yes. >> lovely to have you with us. >> thank you for having me here. >> tell us about the day. today brings another opportunity given what the couple have done to talk about the causes that they support. >> yes. sentebale as you know, we set up in 2006 with harry looking at the plight of the vulnerable children in lesotho. that vulnerability spreads from hiv, disability both physical and mental, and we have a very unique group of vulnerable children called shepherds or herd boys. that's where our coverage is and
8:30 pm
still is. our focus is still on covering a problem or stigma through education, getting young people involved, having set up sentebale, realizing or appreciating that we need to empower the young people to take the lead in some of these inventions. >> what's the biggest progress you've made? >> on the side of adherence of hiv patients. of the stigma, because of the mystique around the negative aspect of hiv and taking the drugs, these young people were either fallen by the wayside afraid to take their drugs. but through the camps which deals with children with hiv, we have seen a significant growth in terms of numbers that kids are now taking the drugs and now are their advocates for a more positive and productive society

and communities. >> what does that work tell us -- because you know him well. what does it tell us about harry's character? today is a day of great celebration and starts a new chapter in his life today. what can you tell us a little more about the way that he clearly wants to be of service to other people and wants to use the incredible position and influence that he has for the good of others? >> from the day he landed in lesotho, we drove all across the country and at the end of that 8 weeks, initial 8 weeks, he said is this it? he said, no, no, we cannot stop at this. i've seen and i think there's a lot that we can do together. there's a lot that can be done for the children to a point where now the sentebale model having achieved some great things in lesotho, there are still some challenges but we're now expanding the model.
8:32 pm
it's hiv ravaged and other vulnerable groups. the best practice that he has been in the driving seat to drive, the passion to drive us into action, because he started this from -- we started this from zero but he's always had the vision, the passion. and that passion shows in the response that he gets from the young people when he comes into lesotho. they all love him. in fact, when i'm here, i'm not just here on my own behalf. i'm on behalf of the children of lesotho. >> lovely thing to say. >> very warm message from lesotho to harry and meghan that when the dust has settled, they should come and we're going to have a jolly good feast. >> the invitation has been delivered. >> yes. >> i know that you have, well, let's just say, a pretty good
8:33 pm
seat for the wedding service, a pretty prominent position in the choir. you're looking forward to it clearly. >> it's going to be wonderful. we've been looking forward to this day for some time. in fact, i teased him when we were last out for william's wedding and said, give us a heads up because i want to see the horsemen come up to london to lead you into the chapel. but he didn't give us enough time. i couldn't load up the horses to come over in good time. but it's going to be a wonderful day. we wish him -- we wish them well. all the best and in our tradition we wish them buckets and buckets of children. >> i think that's a good wish. >> definitely. >> your royal highness, lovely to talk to you. >> always nice to see you. >> enjoy the day. >> thank you. >> that's prince seeiso. thanks to him for spending time with us today. welcome to viewers from around the world, people joining us
8:34 pm
from every corner of the world. if you're joining us now, we're just within, well, a couple of hours of the service starting, and this is the glorious scene inside st. george's chapel, windsor, with the congregation just getting into place. here we have all the banners, so colorful, so rich. they really do respect centuries of british history. this is the most prestigious display of heraldry anywhere in the world. there you have the seats where the knights of the garter take their places for the garter ceremony. every april there's a garter service here at windsor. we're also expecting of course in those choir seats to see the choir, that is to say the singers of st. george's chapel. they are one of the best choirs in the world. they will be performing today. they've been in existence since 1838. it's a wonderful tradition. we're looking forward to that. this is the scene inside this
8:35 pm
wonderful chapel. are earl spencer chatting to some guests before the ceremony gets under way. they've got a bit of a wait but safely in their places because lots of people were asked to be firmly in their seats by 11 or 11:10 at the very latest. we've seen a few people already taking their places but lots still to come. numbers,s look at some of the guests her as we look at the main body of the choir itself, some 600 people in this congregation, most of them in the nave, this space that we're seeing in front of us here. these are not individually named seats by the way. they're seated in kind of zones in the nave. the named seats are in the choir. 600 people representing friends and family in many cases, but of course as prince seeiso was telling us now, those charities and organizations that the couple feel very strongly about where they want their support, where they will be signaling their support in the future. there we have the lower ward of
8:36 pm
windsor castle, people gathering in the sunshine of may for this lovely day, this very happy day, and it couldn't be better weather, it really couldn't be. james haspel among those arriving here. i think they are in for a feast. may refer in a little more detail later on to the kind of service we can be looking forward to. i can tell you one thing right now without giving away too many secrets, the music in today's service is absolutely sublime. a very broad range of music but it is a real treat. so let's look forward to that as well. >> thank you, hugh. we've seen the guests file in now through the south door to george's chapel. we saw the first actual members of the royal family, oprah winfrey. >> it is interesting, isn't it. we were watching earl spencer talking to oprah winfrey and we
8:37 pm
saw james haspel come and that gives you an indication of the real cross-section of british and international society that makes this a wedding like no other. we have not seen really this sort of snapshot before that gives us an indication of the type of people the couple mixed with and the kinds of things they're interested in personally and socially. as we watch the guests filter in we get a real sense of the couple who are at the center of the occasion today. >> announcer: stay tuned for more of prince harry and meghan markle's royal wedding on bbc america.

i'm with matt ives from rhino conservation all the way from botswana to attend the wedding in windsor. welcome. >> thank you very much. it's a great privilege. >> prince harry is a payton of your charity. what does that mean? >> well, a few years ago i got talking to harry about the conservation of rhinos and my organization, rhino conservation botswana, and to my surprise he got really interested and then i discovered that he was a conservationist, enjoyed conservation, understood what it meant to the people of the world to have conservation and so we got talking about rhino conservation and rhino conservation in our country. >> he's quite hands on, isn't he? >> we've done a number of operations together, hands on with the rhinos. we also work with people. he's particularly interested in the links between people and wildlife and in our case rhinos,
8:43 pm
yes. >> he's described botswana as his second home and we know that a couple of weeks, three or four weeks into his relationship with meghan they slept under the stars in botswana. what is it about botswana that makes it such a beautiful place? >> well, i don't know, very friendly people, wide open spaces, absolutely magnificent country side, and the leadership that is very pragmatic, very concerned about wildlife. it's just a wonderful, wonderful place on earth. >> how do you think prince harry will be feeling right now? >> i don't know. i can't comment really on that but i imagine, like anybody on his wedding day, he'll be a touch nervous. but he's a confident individual. i imagine he'll get through it okay. >> and you're a very smart man. am i right in asking you when i say is this the first time you've worn a suit? >> i think you would be right.
8:44 pm
i've worn a jacket and tie before but not often a suit. i'm more comfortable in my uniform of rhino conservation man. >> you look fantastic. have an amazing day. >> thank you for talking to me. i will have an amazing day. it's a privilege. >> matt, early contender for beard of the wedding. >> pretty cool. >> with us to change the changing perceptions of the royal family and royal broadcasting and social commentator. great to have you with us. >> amazing to be here. >> you look guest ready. >> thank you. you know, we are at the wedding. >> absolutely. we're outside the world's oldest inhabited castle. what kind of difference to the royal family do you think the modern meghan markle will make? >> i think that the challenge for the royal family is how to be a family that represents very old-fashioned values of privilege in a society that's about equality of opportunity and multi-culturalism.
8:45 pm
i think that meghan markle is certainly someone who represents the latter. she has become successful through her own talent and hard work. she's used her celebrity to champion causes that she's passionate about and also as a woman of mixed heritage, she hasn't shied away from speaking about that. she's owned it. for me as a black woman of mixed heritage myself, there's been a lot of pressure in my lifetime that you're entering spaces that previously have been wide to downplay your identity. she represents a willingness to not minimize it but speak about it. for me that sends a powerful signal that you can own your identity, it's not taboo, and there's nothing essentially white about britishness. for a lot of people there's been an identity very much linked to whiteness. i think the change that that family represents is profound.
8:46 pm
>> do you think there's an inherent tension there from meghan markle because she's somebody who has written and spoken eloquently about the subject of her own race and her own personal struggle with finding and making peace with what her identity was. there is inherent privilege in the royal family. that is the very tradition of it. she's about equality of opportunity. is that a paradox? do you predict a tension there? >> there are so many paradoxes about the royal family and i can personally relate to this because while i have felt quite alienated of the idea of inherited privilege but at the same time my own struggles with identity have made me appreciate the need for cultural continuity. while i didn't relate to the royal family, i related to the fact that people did. i can relate to the need for that sense of tradition. as the world changes more rapidly than ever, there's a sense of history that lives today. i think that everyone can relate to the need to have traditions you can embrace. i think the royal family
8:47 pm
provides that. >> you pointed out earlier on that there's no reason to downplay your identity and embrace what essentially are your in-laws now. >> speaking of in-laws, we're looking at tom parker bowles and his wife going into the chapel. we're sitting among the splendor and completely buying into it. do you think meghan markle makes it more difficult for people who have a tendency towards republicanism to be a republican because she represents something distinctly different. >> anecdotally, many people i know have been skeptical of the royal family and cannot help themselves. in spite of all their ideology they just can't help it because they feel compelled by her and look at who she's invited. she's invited other self-made people, black icons, oprah winfrey, idris elba, serena williams. these are people who have real meaning for so many people and also she's giving a platform to
8:48 pm
other black talent. she's got the kingdom choir performing, the episcopalian bishop curry, sheku kanneh mason, the young black cellist. even people who are not a fan of the royal family feel passionately about it. >> we can talk all day about this. you look splendid. >> thank you. >> announcer: stay tuned for more of the royal wedding on bbc america. anyone can get you ready, holiday inn express gets you the readiest. because ready gives a pep talk. showtime! but the readiest gives a pep rally. i cleared my inbox! holiday inn express, be the readiest. holiday inn express, ♪ ♪ i don't feel stuffed... ♪ i don't feel guilty... ♪ i still look buff... ♪ i feel like finally snacking ♪ tastes the way it should! ♪ i just had sabra hummus

jake, having a barbecue. i've met prince harry on a couple of occasions. oh, you're name dropping. meghan is very lucky. >> it's all about name dropping. please keep that coming, tell us how you're celebrating the royal wedding. maybe you've met prince harry or the bride-to-be or you've got sound advice about how to calm nerves. >> do we have some pictures? have we got time? >> i don't know if we have got time for pictures. >> no, we don't. it's time to go to the very latest to meghan's hotel. >> i'm very excited to be outside because we've got an hour to go before we get the first glimpse of meghan's dress. no doubt the fashion moment of the year. the question, who will she be wearing, what will she be wearing. there have been various comings
8:54 pm
and goings to the hotel, blacked out windows but no clues. it's a fiercely guarded secret. the finishing touches to hair and makeup are taking place inside the hotel right now. we haven't seen the page boys and bridesmaids because they will be meeting meghan at st. george's chapel. these final moments must be nerve racking for any bride but the entire world will be watching when meghan departs from this hotel and makes her way to windsor castle accompanied by her mum dordoria. inside there a mother and daughter are sharing a deeply intimate moment right now, that precious and private time together before they set off shortly and face the world's media. you can only imagine what's going through meghan's mind right now and how her mum doria is feeling as she watches her daughter, her only child, get ready to marry a prince. it's the ultimate fairytale. >> thank you so much for that. we'll be coming and going, we think, from cliveden. for now let's take a look at the
8:55 pm
guests as they fitter into st. george's chapel. joelle, our fashion expert, is here. what do you make of these pictures? >> it's not a bad life, is it? everybody looks absolutely fantastic. i love all the color that we're seeing. i thought that was -- that's alexei and his partner there. i love that mint green. it's a beautiful spring day and a wedding i think is a perfect excuse to bring the color. >> i was expecting to see a lot more sort of pastels, that kind of shell pastel pink. we've seen a lot of bold color. >> yeah. sort of like more wintery jewel tones are coming through. you've seen a lot of emerald green as you're wearing yourself, looking fantastic. that's something amazing, isn't it? >> that is a wonderful outfit. >> that is bringing the festive. i like it. >> are you spotting -- i've seen -- obviously there have been some sensational head gear. are you spotting trends in the
8:56 pm
head gear, a look that people tend to be going for? >> there's sort of like going big or really tiny. there doesn't seem to be much in between. there's not many fascinators. >> there's chelsea davey, an ex-girlfriend, we believe, of prince harry and she's looking i have to say rather thoughtful as she sits in st. george's chapel. that's a great hat. >> amazing. phillip tracy tends to sort of kidnap the royals. absolutely gorgeous. again, sort of like that wintery tone but it works because it looks so kind of festive. >> and that, madam, is a hat. >> that's the thing, i just feel like -- oh, look at this one here, the feathers sticking up there, incredible. if you're going to wear a hat, own it, go for it. how often do we get to do it. >> we were cheekily referring to
8:57 pm
beatrice and eugenie's remarkable hats in 2011. >> so far that one wins. >> that's right up there. >> i want beatrice and eugenie to push it even more, just own it. >> it can be difficult to wear a hat, can't it? >> i think so, yeah. you just look bold if you're wearing a hat. >> there's pippa. >> she's wearing a british brown, sort of paired down like the ultimate wardrobe. >> and the fold is made in britain. that's one of their selling points that they like to see. it's british designed and british made. >> and there's -- >> that's annabelle goldsmith. there we are. there's carol middleton. and michael middleton. >> she looks fantastic. we remember her baby blue from kate's wedding. >> the man that is shaking hands with carol middleton is of
8:58 pm
course patty hashson who worked at manchester united and went on as head of communications to the boys at st. james' palace. he was seen to throw diana a ring of steel when needed to be but was very fair in his dealings with the press. >> he was instrumental about getting harry out, wasn't he? >> he was. he looks relaxed. he's moved on. he's not having to deal with the back room shenanigans. a day of celebration for him. it's a splendid day here in windsor at st. george's chapel. welcome if you're joining us here on bbc one. we will of course have the ceremony at midday. it couldn't be a better day. fortune is smiling on the bride and groom with this weather. we're going to look at some pictures. >> let's look at some messages, find out how you're celebrating. i think we've got some pictures today. >> let's look at the pictures.
8:59 pm
>> this is moses, my 7-year-old son drawing the royal couple that he did at school yesterday. nice work. >> that is pretty good. >> he's going to celebrate watching it on tv while decorating biscuits. >> getting in the mood to celebrate. i do like these masks. look at that, splendid. >> union jack bow tie. there's a different royal couple. >> look at the little fella to celebrate prince harry and meghan markle, their namesakes. lovely. is the chapel zoned? >> sir clive, lady jane, welcome to windsor, what an amazing day. >> amazing. thanks, it's a real honor to be here. >> you have quite a strong relationship with prince harry.
9:00 pm
tell me where it started. it's all because of his love for rugby, isn't it? >> he absolutely loves rugby and i think we first met harry when he was 13 and i had him in the royal box in his nice suit. afterwards i saw him and he didn't look happy and i thought we've got to change this so we changed the whole routine, gave him six tickets, he brought his friends along, sat in the crowd with his rugby shirt and hat and he came to enjoy it. we started then and he's been a big fan ever since i think. >> is it true that johnny wilkinson gave him a rugby top? >> yeah, very true. i still wears it. i don't think he's ever washed it. after the game he said look what i've got. of course we used to insignia the shirts and he's never washed it ever and still wears it now. >> jane, you were known for throwing legendary parties in the car park. tell us more about these parties. >> it was a way of looking after the wives and girlfriends and mums and dads because obviously
9:01 pm
there wasn't enough kids to go around inside. that's where harry and william used to come with their friends and mingle and get stuck in and hand around the cakes and the pastries and champagne and we would all go in and watch the game. he started coming in '98 so it was fantastic support really for us. >> tell us about baking for prince harry. >> i'm a dreadful baker but every now and again i would take along some cakes for him and his friends. whether they ate them or not -- >> they were great cakes. lovely cakes. >> what cakes were they? >> sponge cake. >> sponge cakes. >> that's about all i can do. >> who doesn't love a sponge cake. how proud are you both feeling today? >> bursting, bursting. >> i'm proud because i've seen him grow up since a young boy and i think we're all hugely proud. you've seen the welcome today, a big, big day. he just looks really happy and that's all we want.
9:02 pm
he's just a great guy and delighted to be here and really happy for him. >> wonderful to see him so happy. we wish them all the best. >> absolutely we do. you both look gorgeous. have a great day. thank you for speaking to me today. >> announcer: stay tuned for more of the royal wedding on bbc america.

guests still arriving and we've seen the chapel filling up pretty quickly. earl spencer chatting to some of the guests there in the choir. we have at least 200 or 300 people in the chapel now. dna snow, my colleague from the bbc, the broadcaster and his wife. i'm just wondering at this point what the nave is looking like and that's it for you, about half full at the moment. that means about a couple of hundred people there. quite a few people still to
9:07 pm
arrive and we've seen over the past five or ten minutes or so some of those people who have been associated with prince harry in the past, some friends of the family and those indeed who have served with him in the armed forces too. looking at these images with me, their private secretary for 8 years, a role that he left in 2013. nice to have you with us. when you think about to when you knew the boys when they were young and here we are today celebrating the event like this, the transition to you must seem a very satisfying one. >> for me it's sort of a combination of what has been a great journey for prince harry actually. he was always very special.
9:08 pm
just a very good guy and he had potential really from the word go and it's great to see it all come to fruition on his great and happy day. >> what do you think of the partnership? >> it's unbelievable. it's a wonderful modern coming together actually and with harry and his way of doing things it really means that they'll be able to do great things together, actually. >> looking at more people arriving and i'm just thinking what are your thoughts on the mix of people that we have here today? what does it tell us about them? >> it reflects the eclectic nature of prince harry in that he's primarily interested in people and what you're seeing here is nothing less than the mix of what he's always been fascinated by, which is people. >> circle of friends is interesting for us to see obviously. because it's not obvious to the public very often where the
9:09 pm
circle of friends is and what kind of friends there are. describe the friends for us. how do they work out? >> i think it's actually fairly similar to anybody in that you layer up your friendships as you go through life. obviously it's a very different life to most of us which prince harry has had but it's school friends. it's army friends. the army has played a huge part in his life. he's obviously been in more than one regiment so he's got friends from the calvary, from the army air corps and then he's got his friends from his charitable work and the work as a member of the royal family. >> so the best man, as we know, is william, the brother. and there's a little dig saying revenge would be sweet or some such line in a playful way. how do you think that's going to work out? what is that partnership like? >> one of the reasons that we're very lucky in this country and i don't wish to sound sycophant
9:10 pm
here but they are both really, really good guys and they both come from completely different angles, whatever you want to call it. they're entirely complimentary to one another. they always have been. you've seen lots of things they have done together over the years. they have very close and have that very healthy sibling rivalry. they make the mickey out of each other. >> marcus and carey mulligan on their way to st. george's chapel. one of the range of celebrities just to reflect what we were saying earlier -- there you have the chief executive of the royal foundation. there we have, jamie, possibly one of the biggest names, george and amal clooney again telling us something that this the a couple engaged in complaining, engaged in saying something.
9:11 pm
>> right back to the foundation of sentebale, harry has always had this and it amazed me actually coming across a 21-year-old boy, man, whatever, he had such a drive on that side actually. this is just a reflection of it. >> now we have the beckhams too so this is the celebrity few minutes and again a reflection of the kind of status and scope of this congregation. lovely to see them. they're all enjoying. clooneys bask is in the sunshine and admiration and applause. the beckhams clearly having a fantastic time. >> wow. the a-listers all turned up at the same time. >> that was extraordinary. george and amal clooney. you really can't underestimate the sheer star wattage. is somebody lighting them as they walk down there? because they're shining. i'm going to say that i think
9:12 pm
amal clooney is wearing amelia wicksteb. and i'm probably entirely wrong. >> if you're right that's so impressive. >> and there we go. we see david beckham taking -- it wasn't quite a selfie but somebody was having a snap and the shades are back on. victoria is wearing a very elegant deep blue that she's wearing. a hat with a veil and i imagine her seamstresses at her fashion brand have been very busy this week. i am very, very admiring of george for many reasons but one of them is he is walking nice and slowly because he knows that amal is in heels and it takes time to negotiate the ancient cobbles of st. george's. >> we were at the top yesterday and up for a look around and where the guests dropped off, that is a significant gradient. all i could think of is my wife would not be happy now. >> but amal clooney is an accomplished human rights lawyer.
9:13 pm
i think heels on cobbles is the there we see -- there's tom bradley of itn who we've been reading recently has been having sleep problems but he looks like he's had a good sleep last night. there's johnny wilkinson and his wife with a lovely bump underneath her beautiful lace dress. and a wave to the crowd. what they have been waiting for. >> seems like half past 10 is the time to stay up for the wedding. >> that must have been a bit of a jostle there for them. do we want to be before or after george and amal? >> announcer: stay tuned for more of the royal wedding on bbc america. when you combine ancestry's with its historical records... you could learn you're from ireland donegal, ireland and your ancestor was a fisherman. with blue eyes. just like you.

9:19 pm
>> how many qualities does prince harry share with his mum? >> oh my goodness, we say princess diana is remembered for her qualities of compassion, quality and service and that's how we would describe both prince harry and prince william. this wedding demonstrates how much service and humanitarian work is important to them. bring it on. we're very excited. >> this says so much about this young couple, doesn't it, that they've said to everybody, just donate to seven charities and they've invited all of you here. going forward this is going to be fantastic. >> they're a power of good. both of them individually are very engrained in humanitarian work but together they work for good. this is massive, this is huge. one of the things i was saying yesterday is i see meghan redefining what a princess means. it's not simply about golden sandals, it's about service. it's about people. it's about caring.
9:20 pm
it's about compassion and empathy and that's what i'm really excited about. >> you said that you brought how many people from the charity? ten. >> ten, yes. >> and you are wearing a design by one of the young people you have helped. tell me about it. >> one of our young people was on my styling team but my dress is actually designed by a fabulous lady that is amazing. she did my hat and my dress. it's incredible. so thank you to everyone. one of the things i really wanted to do is allow young people to shine through this process. they're here with me. we're very much involved in thinking about the outfit and what it meant so it's been an incredible process. >> you look fantastic. have an amazing day. hooray for the weather. >> yes. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. >> all the best. >> thank you very much. >> it's a day for kisses, isn't it?
9:21 pm
and the beautiful flowers behind jesse we saw have been done by philippa craddock and her team. the whole of st. george's chapel is just a magnificent building anyway but it's come alive today with guests full of good cheer in this late spring sunshine. george and amal. it would be nice if victoria beckham smiled. we're here for hours, anything could happen. >> we know george clooney is smiling. >> beaming. >> yeah, beaming. there he is in the choir, the nave which is the greater part of the building and then the choir. there is mr. nicholas jones. that happens to be my old man. i'm sitting here working and he's doing that. there's one of my daughters. >> let's have a little talk about his pocket square. >> okay, yeah. >> did you give him that? >> yeah, i wouldn't have tucked go on, tuck it in. mate. i wish he could hear me. they're mixing with the guests.
9:22 pm
speaking to the beckhams. it's lovely to see them. >> your daughter. >> what a day for freya who is 17. she said mom how do you wear a hat? i said you have to just wear a hat and get on with it. there's george and amal clooney. his wife is standing next to him with a beautiful summer dress and hat on. i have to say, watching all of this, what is fascinating -- well, what people are wearing is fascinating but it is the social mix. as we were hearing from jesse, it's not about golden slippers and princess and privilege, it's about the coming together of two people that are in love and in the mix we seem to see that today. we're looking at the world of high society, of showbiz, of charity, sports stars, movie stars. they're all there. >> we've never seen a royal wedding like this before, have we? of course it's a sense of privilege with some of the guests but like you said you've got a-listers from america,
9:23 pm
famous sports stars, mutual friends of the couple as well. >> i think it makes a big difference. we saw the state occasion in 2011 which was of course a feast for the eyes and an incredible thing to see but not having the politicians here and not having the heads of state that don't actually know the couple seems to make everything a bit more relaxed and friendly. >> do you think that's in many ways because it's here because this is the royal family's proper home. windsor castle is where they see as home. this is harry's home, the queen's home. >> could have something to do with it. >> more guests on the ground. let's see. >> well, what's so exciting about this wedding is the welcoming of meghan markle and her family within the royal family. you're one of the lucky people to have already met meghan markle. what was that like? >> it was amazing. she is so funny, beautiful, and she's just got an amazing personality. >> she came to visit you at your school at nottingham academy but not long after that she came back.
9:24 pm
tell us why. >> when she came with harry i asked her to promise she would come back and she did end up coming back in a period of less than six weeks. >> that's incredible. future royalty coming to your school. deputy principal helen bolger with us as well, it's incredible to be here at this event but having been there up and close with these two royals it must have been an amazing moment for the whole school. >> absolutely. it was so inspirational for all the students. they met lots and lots of people on that day. chatted to them, gave them words of advice. it was lovely. >> and do i hear that they're not too much a fan of the surprise? what happened when they surprised you at the school? >> yes. two surprise visits. harry came on his own and leonra was told that her boss was coming to see her and it was prince harry. there was lots of screaming from the girls as you can imagine. >> they weren't ready. >> they weren't ready.
9:25 pm

rather captivated. maybe i'm speaking for myself. >> no, you're not. >> by someone who works a lot with harry, with his charity, sentebale. if you know anything about polo, i don't but if you do you know that nacho is the best of the best and happens to be a ralph lauren model. >> he made quite the impression in the studio. >> they have four children and she looks ravishing in that turquoise gown. beautiful. there's st. george's chapel. >> we were taken aback yesterday, weren't we? >> i'm not going to talk about it. as soon as the engagement was announced in november last year prince harry and meghan made a concerted effort to head out and around the u.k. to meet the people. their second official visit as a couple was to represent radio which is a station inside london where they were lucky enough to meet two people who join us now.
9:31 pm
thank you very much. you look gorgeous first of all. >> thank you. >> guys, what was it like when they came down? tell us. >> i think the undercurrent of the visit, at first when it was announced it was a case of, wait, they're coming to brixton to a radio station. everyone was shocked but actually almost immediately as they arrived i think the very kind of inclusive feel they represent him them. >> harry didn't have any connections with the radio station before in any way? >> i think he might have done a set back in 19 -- when they came they really started to explore. meghan had done her research and new a little about us. >> this sends a huge message, the fact that they've chosen you guys as the second official visit and the first visit was to the hiv center. >> what was it like to meet them?
9:32 pm
>> they were so lovely. i was almost like meeting an old friend. they're personable people, very lovely. on top of that, again, meghan knew everything about us without us even having to say which is amazing that she came up with facts like we train 400 people every single year. she knew that without us having to say it. for her to do that it shows that she really cares about young people and the work that we do which is so important. >> that's interesting to hear. you meet a lot of people and we do too. you can so easily tell the difference between somebody professional and somebody who seems to be engaged. you felt they knew what you were about and they were genuinely interested. >> absolutely. the first time i spoke to prince harry, he kind of popped his ear ready to listen to what we had to say. he was inquisitive because initially he thought it was a radio station and then they said all we do is having to do with mental health. if you look at the charity work
9:33 pm
they've both done, he saw that and the reason he picked much more than a radio station. >> when we see joss stone, usually joss stone has her hair flowing, bare feet and wearing something like a cool caftan. not today. joss stone has made quite a considerable effort. she's looking beautiful. we know she's a friend of harry's. she's played at gigs that he's enjoyed and here she is today heading to her friend's nuptials. >> what impact do you think it made for the people of brixton for meghan and harry to visit? >> it shows they really care about what we do and what we do on a day-to-day basis. as a radio station we get like 2,000 unsigned artists and it's just really important for them. >> what's happened since the visit? >> it's been crazy. >> has it?
9:34 pm
>> yeah, it has. i think the day after i went there people are like, oh, my god, you met harry, you met meghan. it was crazy but on top of that it was really good because it shone a big light on the work that we do outside of radio as well. >> i don't know if it's important to you or not but i'm interested, is it important that the royal family is welcoming somebody who is biracial? >> the way i see it from spending time around the young people that we represent, for our generation, things like equality, inclusivity and love in all its forms, for us that's the norm. that's how it should be. but actually, with the stuff that's happened in the last couple of years, there's a massive question mark over whether is it the norm anymore. we had brexit and political decisions in the u.s. i feel like this wedding today is a massive thumbs up from the top that actually we're going exactly the way we need to be going. as you were, signed the royal family. that's what it feels like. >> such an interesting answer. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> we are back with hugh i
9:35 pm
believe. >> here we are in our garden room with our fantastic view. we've seen lots of guests arriving. with me is someone with a very precise eye on these things, royal correspondent for "hello" magazine, emily nash. >> thank you for having me. >> we talk about fashions. what do you make of the event in terms of who's here? tell us about your reading of that? >> we've had a flurry of a-listers. it's a meeting of royalty and hollywood royalty. we're seeing lots of big names, the clooneys, the beckhams. we're going to see a few more i suspect. what i love about this wedding is you've also got other people, more unsung heroes if you like, friends of the bride and groom who have brilliant stories to tell as well. among them people like dean stotts who has smashed a record for cycling the length of two continents, got back here in time for the wedding. >> looking at the congregation,
9:36 pm
it's pretty packed there. it's really getting quite full. most of the main guests have arrived. when we see a little later on meghan arriving and we see the ten bridesmaids and page boys, tell us a little bit about the selection in that group and what you make of that. >> they have chosen children who are very close to them. obviously you have prince george and princess charlotte, the niece and nephew of the couple. they have the children of their three best friends. we'll see the children of jessica mulroney and some of the god children as well and the mothers in there as well to wrangle them into position. >> at the service, are you expecting the content of the shape of the service to tell us something about their tastes and the fact that are they going to try to make a statement with that in terms of how modern it is in parts of it? what's your reckoning? >> i think it's going to be
9:37 pm
relatively relaxed by the standards of royal weddings. you're still going to have the formality, the national anthem, i'm sure a curtsy to the queen but you've got the gospel choir. what's not to love. it's going to be great fun. >> i'm thinking at this point when we go through the service, as you say music is fantastic, and we look at the kind of range of people here, then i'm thinking do you know what, this is not a bad place to be in the lower ward itself. it's lovely to be in the chapel but chatting to people down here earlier on -- by the way, lots of the people in this lower ward are part of a community of windsor castle. i should explain this. there's quite a big community of people who live within the castle itself. >> that's right. >> they are among the most excited of all. >> they're hosting the party, you know. there's a real festival feeling. it's a lot of fun out there, people enjoying the spectacle.
9:38 pm
>> a few minutes to midday when the bride arrives just before the service starts, what are your thoughts on what we might see in terms of a wedding dress? clearly the speculation is pretty intense. >> whatever i say now i might be setting myself up for a big fall. >> give me a range of options. >> big names, stella mccartney would be a great choice. she's got all the credentials, simple, beautiful, elegant styles. we're hearing other names, perhaps less expected, clare waight keller is also in the mix. she has led some very big fashion houses here. i think we're not going to know until that door opens. it's going to be a huge moment. >> prince seeiso who was in the studio with us earlier, we see his wife as well making his way into the choir. he has a pretty prominent place in the choir where the royal family is sitting. he's sitting on the same side as some of the other guests in the
9:39 pm
choir, including the clooneys and oprah winfrey among others. he's there of course because he has played such a big part in setting up of the charity that harry really has given so much effort and time to, which is sentebale. more guests are arriving and i'm going to say thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you so much. >> enjoy it. >> i will. >> announcer: stay tuned for more of prince harry and meghan markle's royal wedding on bbc america.

we've just been handed this. >> this is fascinating and it comes within your realm of fashion. it has to do with adornment. >> we've heard that they've chosen cleaven company to make the wedding rings and it's made from a piece of welsh gold. but prince harry will be wearing a platinum band with a textured finish. >> this is very unusual because we know that william does not wear a wedding band. the prince of wales i think wears a signet ring. the duke of edinboro does not wearing a wedding ring. that was not the tradition. there's elton john.
9:45 pm
david furnish with him sporting a beard. >> and wearing valentino. >> you've been keeping a very close eye on the fashion of the guests. i took a complete punt and i looked at amal clooney and thought there's a great british designer called amelia winsted who designs proper dresses. >> i can see where you're going there. it is in fact stella mccartney. i only know that because i was told. >> i would have put my hat on that. >> if you say it with confidence, it means a lot. >> so was stella mccartney. absolutely remarkable. >> as i said earlier i'm a sucker for earlier but the buzz already is that's the outfit of the day, besides the wedding dress obviously. >> let's talk a little bit about the meghan effect. we hear about this but is it a real thing. we know that when, for example,
9:46 pm
they got engaged which was the first time that we all got to really clap our eyes on them properly and official as a couple. there we are. that was the day they came out into the garden at kensington palace. she was wearing a distinctive white coat. >> that brand is renamed the meghan coat in honor of the meghan effect which is so real that it's actually quite terrifying for a lot of brands when they can't actually keep up with the demand. that was the case in point where they ended up with a six-month waiting list for that coat. meghan of course is one step ahead of us. she owns it in an assortment of colors. you can get it but i think there's a waiting list. it's about 450 pounds so a reasonable entry point for a coat if you want a bit of the markle sparkle. >> we tested this last night as well, the championing of brands with meghan is a huge thing. it's going to make a whole business. >> yes. and i really admire meghan's
9:47 pm
obvious thoughtfulness into that, she's championed a small scottish bag brand and another one which actually funds vaccines for every bag they sell for children. it's very considered. >> the fashion business, it is big business. it's a multi-billion pound business for britain and a thing we're very good at. >> it's bigger than the car industry. >> is it? that's remarkable. when these small brands are taken up by meghan and she wears a pair of welsh jeans that nobody's ever heard of, how does the company try to deal with the reality of the sudden increased traffic on their website if they even have one? >> well, they have to navigate as it happens and in fact that denim brand that you mentioned, they're called hyatt i think. i love the story, they started in a small town in an abandoned jeans factory that used to manufacture for big brands. they sort of decided to bring
9:48 pm
this brand back to the town and i was when meghan wore those jeans, suddenly they have to move premises. >> you're talking about jobs. >> absolutely. >> we saw another shot of amal. there's elton john but we were looking at amal in this beautiful mustard colored dress and hat designed by stella mccartney. >> that's a good reference. i was going to go canary yellow. can anybody but amal wear that color? >> that is a color for somebody who's very dark, beautiful against her dark hair. that's an interesting brand to choose not just because she knows how to rock it but she's interested in ethical fashion. look at the detail on the back. >> it's stunning. people are speculating that it's a very good match for meghan and her ethical principles. that's just absolutely gorgeous, sort of show stopping. i don't think she needs to get changed for evening. >> i think she probably will though. >> it worked. it's a good day to night transition. >> i wonder when it comes to --
9:49 pm
stella mccartney talks about the ethical input to her brand and they do these great big audits. we were doing a preview last night and you said there had been a rumor that stella mccartney could be designing the wedding dress itself. that would be an interesting choice because it is probably the biggest environmentally conscious fashion brand. >> yes. what's big for stella is being totally against animal cruelty so there's no leather, no fur. everything is manmade as it were. that's hugely important to her and her family. i think, again, meghan does put a lot of consideration into her fashion choices, so on that sort of level, it makes sense. >> announcer: stay tuned for more of the royal wedding on bbc america.

9:57 pm
today for putting in the effort. this doesn't happen by accident. >> it would have taken many weeks of planning. particularly when there's a hat you need to start with the hat and build around it. >> that was a beautiful romantic dress that we saw there. did you see that one? the flowing one. it was rather gorgeous. >> that's sarah rafferty right there. >> her "suits" co-star. talk to me about the bell sleeve. >> i love a bell sleeve. she won't be eating much i will imagine so it looks absolutely stunning. >> we can see as well rick hoffman in front. his wife mary looking lovely. we saw rick hoffman who meghan said is one of the closest members of the "suits" cast. >> the co-stars of "suits," they are coming quick and fast. >> loving the cold shoulder on
9:58 pm
that green. >> peek-a-boo shoulder. sarah rafferty, not a hair out of place. >> gorgeous detail on that as well. it's interesting to see there's been quite a few women choosing a dark navy which can be seen as a safe color but when you have so much embellishment on the dress and also a net with a hat, it lends it a great deal of drama. >> and also if you wear a smile with it, it is celebratory. >> looking splendid in a top hat. >> not many top hats though. >> the only man wearing a top hat. >> he's dusted it off. >> we hear that -- >> patrick j. adams is here.

it is surely a lovely sight. guests are being greeted as they make their way into st. george's chapel. we know of course that the ceremony itself will start in just over an hour, an hour and five minutes. it's going to start at midday. >> let's head back to anita who's with another very lucky wedding guest. >> i'm with the chief executive of myna mahila. all the way from india. one of the 7 charities harry and meghan have asked people to donate to. you look sensational. i love that you're rocking the sari. >> thank you so much. we had to represent india here. >> you absolutely are. now meghan visited your charity last year, didn't she? tell me what she was like. tell me about her impact. >> meghan was so sincere and intellectual in the field of women empowerment.
10:06 pm
a lot of the connotations that we had were along the lines of what do we do next now that we know what the problems are with menstrual hygiene in india and also a grounded conversation. she's very approachable and very friendly to talk to. and she was willing to do anything that we wanted. we wanted her to drape the sari. she wore the bindi and all the traditional things as well. she looks gorgeous and a bit indian which we love. now you have not come alone have you? >> no, i have come with three other women here. two are from mumbai and they had never gotten on a flight before. this is the first time they've gotten on a flight and straight to london. it's been a dream come true for them. really, really happy it's such a special occasion.
10:07 pm
>> they've gotten on a flight for the first time so their impression of the u.k. will be windsor. >> and the incredible people here. >> what an honor to be one of the seven charities that harry and meghan have asked people to donate to. what does that mean for you? >> i think a really small organization, that kind of support that comes in early on really helps us exponentially grow. now we can think about expanding to 100 more women because we've built that credibility through this kind of support. it's really important for the morale of our own women, for them to perceive and see themselves in the papers and also just feel like what they're doing is really important and it's being recognized. >> how do you feel being here? you're about to go to the royal wedding. >> just really honored and super excited. i think this is really a once in a lifetime opportunity and i can't believe that i'm here. >> it's wonderful that you're
10:08 pm
here. she's only 23 years old. you look sensational. have a fantastic day. >> thank you so much. >> thanks, anita. we're delighted to welcome to the studio barrenes lawrence. thank you so much for taking the time to join us today. it is a very interesting moment in british cultural history. we're seeing a snapshot of something quite different. given that you have met the couple, can you give me your impression of meghan markle when you spoke to her? >> they have an empathy coming across from her which i thought was really good. because at the end of the day it's quite a roller coaster. to have somebody so calm and really engaging. it was good to have that. at the end of the day for me it
10:09 pm
was good to have that. >> what did she talk to you about? >> she didn't say that much. she was really pleased to be there and understood about what happened around steven and just saying how sorry she was to hear about the news and really pleased to be there at the time. >> we talked a little bit about this earlier on and the royal family always has causes and it looks like meghan is bring is those causes on. there's always a big thing that the royal family can't get involved in politics but there is a point where cause and politics kind of -- the diagram overlaps a little bit there. >> i remember when their relationship was first announced there was a lot of language in the press that i thought was very coded racist references and i don't remember but prince harry issued a statement from the palace where he calls that out and condemns it and it was completely unprecedented and i think that it is difficult for them to put themselves out there on issues like this but when it effects them personally or they
10:10 pm
feel strongly enough about it they do. it was a hugely welcome moment because people like me that write about it are often attacked themselves and to have somebody in that position be on your side makes a huge difference and i hope they'll continue to venture into spaces that have been a bit too difficult because that's what we need in the country. we need to start talking about things that we prefer to sweep under the carpet and i think meghan has a track record of doing that. harry nohas entered that realm as well and that offers a lot of promise and actually if the royal family wants to make themselves more relevant to the new generation that's the kind of thing they do need to do. >> we should let viewers know -- they probably know, we've seen sarah, the duchess of york enter st. george's chapel.
10:11 pm
>> i want to ask you about when we see the royals and the soon to be royals turn up at events, what happens is automatically usually more attention than an event would get because of their presence. for what does that mean in your role as you consider your work? >> steven's name has always attracted a lot of media attention but to have both meghan and harry turn up it was fantastic. it shows that they're more in tune to what's happening within society and the fact that they wanted to be there to support him. we had prince william to to steven's trust before with kate and that's amazing, because they spent time talking to young people and you couldn't pry them away because they're so keen to make sure that they spoke to everyone that was there on the day. >> announcer: stay tuned for more of prince harry and meghan markle's royal wedding on bbc america.

have you spoken to the young
10:17 pm
people about this wedding? do you think -- are they engaged in it? >> i haven't had a chance to be around the wedding but i've been speaking to them. it's so important to have to get young people's views. we had one young student attend the service and he's one of the law students so it was quite good to have young people. the idea was about voices, young people's voices. so that's what the theme was. to see them there on the day, of course we invite all our students to whatever we're doing to make sure they're represented at all times. >> hopefully in the future we can move on from this being a question, but is it important or how important do you think it is that we are seeing the first biracial member of the royal family? >> i was saying this morning that they've had a black queen before. this is back in 1750 something so it's not the first time. i think we need to move away from always talking about people's color. we need to talk about who the
10:18 pm
person is, what they're bringing with them, the background. i think for me that's what's important. if we don't start moving and doing that, the race issue which is important, we need to make sure we address it but at the same time we need to look at the person and make sure that we welcome them for who they are. >> thank you so much. thanks for coming along today. it's just a few minutes after 11:02 a.m. pretty sure wedding parties are getting into full swing all around the country. not just here. le's go back to richard in los angeles where it's about 3:02 in the morning. let's see how they're enjoying -- i don't know, is it early morning, late night? who knows. welcome back to los angeles to one of the many watch parties happening right across meghan's hometown, as you can see. where the marvelous crowd here, they have been loving watching the arrivals and as you have
10:19 pm
described there, the breathtaking outfits. they were fascinated as george amal clooney, the beckhams, james corden got a cheer. oprah tried to find her seat. show founded and was the principal of the school meghan went to for nine years, the hollywood school house. i'm joined by emanuel, the director of drama at st. francis school. meghan of course an actress and you gave her her first lead role. >> i guess i did that and it was quite surreal but i'm pretty proud of our program at st. francis. >> tell me about what stood out about meghan to you? >> when she walked up on the stage, she was just amazing right away. she had the charisma and it caught me right away so i casted her as the lead. >> do you think that background in acting, do you think it helps on a day like, that poise, does it help on a day like today when
10:20 pm
it feels like the whole world is going to be watching her? >> well, to be in theatre, you're evolving in that character. so use it as a platform and she has the charisma to reach out to other people. >> thank you. do not play down your part in today. you gave her her first role. she goes on to "suits" for more than 100 episodes. she meets prince harry and goes on to marry him. i say it's down to you. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> rejoice, emanuel. let's go back to alex now. >> l.a. aren't the only ones enjoying the arrivals. haven't we loved it? amal clooney, hot to trot. we like the yellow in the sunshine, lovely. we have teddy and chantel and
10:21 pm
megan and anthony who are on a double date. they've come from greenwich this morning. you were saying there's so many young people here. what about harry and meghan is so relatable? >> as a couple they're very honest. not just in their relationship but the personalities in themselves, i think the work they're doing elsewhere and particularly harry with the invictus games and speaking about issues, mental health issues in particular, we can relate. the fact that they've had careers as well is a progression of the royal family that maybe we needed. >> they're a force of nature together but what meghan's already done for young women is quite something. >> it's inspirational. she's done loads for charities and for empowering women to believe that they have that choice and it should be used. >> well, have a great day. anthony, lots of people enjoying their brunch and prosecco at home. what's it like to be in the middle of this fantastic
10:22 pm
atmosphere? >> great. everybody is smiling, laughing, having fun. the weather is amazing. >> i'm worried about you, i think we need sun cream. go off and get some now. back to 50 i think for you, yes. >> announcer: stay tuned for more of the royal wedding on bbc america. in my johnsonville commercial, it starts out in the park, and a family is grilling firecracker brats. one of the kids asks, "where are johnsonville brats made?" and the mom says, ♪ "johnsonville brats are made in the usa." ♪ all of a sudden, the fire department storms in, yelling, ♪ "johnsonville brats are made in the usa." ♪ the teachers come. the mayor comes. you won't believe it: lady liberty shows up. she's going,

10:27 pm
victoria gosling who looked after the games in 2016 and double amputee and former u.k. captain. welcome to both of you. >> thank you. great to be here. >> by the way, victoria, you should be organizing the wedding with your c.v. you are on it. 2016, talk us through that because he was quite the tough boss, wasn't he. he was on the phone all the time. >> he was. we had it in 2014 and wanted to ensure that it kept the brand integrity. he's very much engaged in ensuring that we kept that integrity to the games but of course we were taking it over to america and we had to make sure -- it was the first sort of opportunity to put the brand on a global platform and of course with the distance -- in london he was there all the time but when it came to orlando he clearly couldn't be there so he was literally ensuring that we were doing it and then we came back to give him a break to make sure that everything -- >> bernie, you were captain of
10:28 pm
the team last year. >> absolutely, yes. >> what effect did the games have on you personally? >> for me personally, when i was retired from the army, i still felt like i wanted to perform what i was when i was serving. having the opportunity to be captain, to be given an opportunity to step up, to stand up and be the person i was and it brought about that person. >> it's interesting because british service men and women i guess have in common with most service men and women around the world, they're people with stamp ma, ambition. if that's taken away that's a huge part of your personality you can't express. >> sit down and watch tv. the opportunity to step out of that and something that prince harry did to move into invictus makes a massive difference.
10:29 pm
>> there is a sense that you obviously get institutionalized because you were in there such a long time. there's a sense that like i said from the people i've spoken to that there's a distance or a certain sense of loss. is the invictus to a point filled that in your life? >> it made me the person i was. when that was took away, it is taken away, when you get together again, that camaraderie, you feel a part of it. you prove you can do it as well as you did it while in service. >> can i ask you, you were both in toronto when meghan and harry. everybody knew it was something much more than that. it was a statement that we are together and this is very, very serious. what did you make of it? you thought firsthand, the response between them?
10:30 pm
>> it's quite place for them to go public because clearly, the games are really special to prince harry. the it's very much part of his life. i think recently. so the very fact that's what they became public was great because it was everybody could see it firsthand. this just added more sparkle, really. >> going to be on the phone when the wedding's over. >> an accident. it's happening. everything was in full splendor. >> they're having a delayed honeymoon. on their way there to the games, they might take time. >> that's a right place to do it. >> yeah. >> we are approaching 45 minutes away. when that service will begin. just a couple of minutes before midday.
10:31 pm
meghan markle will arrive at the great west door of st. george's chapel and then process alone along the aisle and she will cross the part of the chapel and cross by george clooney approaching the altar, where prince harry will be waiting for her. then the archbishop will conduct the actual marriage ceremony and the dean of windsor, who is in charge of this magnificent place, he will be in charge of the overall service. now some orchestral music. some very english flavor.
10:32 pm
the chamber orchestra and conducted by christopher warren green and they are a superb group of players. the assistant director of music. and the organ in its full glory due to the hymns during the wedding ceremony. >> great view. up into the choir. just look across to where just down to the bottom end where we can see john major there, a night of the daughter.

and all of the knights recognized for the value of their public contribution of theirs because they've been rewarded for their national contribution over the years. the beckhams already in place ready to enjoy this service and we can see george and amal clooney there flanked by other friends of meghan markle. during the service we will be able to see the brides mother take her place there just near the alter itself. she'll have one of the best views of the couple taking their vows. >> stay tuned for more of the royal wedding on bbc america.

of the royal family who are making their way at a leisurely place down towards st. george's chapel. all doing what the guests have been doing before this. just enjoying the sunshine. the atmosphere. there's a lovely vibe today. people are wanting to have a really good time. they were of course married at windsor, and zara and mike tindall, they were married back in 2011. zara phillips expecting a child and they'll be sitting very near the queen and other members of the royal family on the right hand side of the choir as we look at them. so just basking in the sunshine as they make their way down. they have a very short walk from the private apartment. if you just look at the part of the castle in the background there, that is where the private apartments are. prince michael of kent, princess michael of kent, cousin of the
10:39 pm
queen of course and they'll be there with the duke and duchess of kent as well and we also have the duke and duchess of gloster too. making their way down. so members of the royal family making their way down. they know what's in store. it's a happy service. it's a service of celebration. they're enjoying the crowds outside and people having a very good look. how lucky are the 2,000 people in the lower ward of windsor castle because they have been waiting since about 8:15 or 8:30 this morning in lovely weather but waiting with the cameras poised and now they're getting some of the best shots possible of the royal family as they arrive and in a short while of coursee'll be seeing the
10:40 pm
prince of wales and duchess cornwall. that's all to come. making their way in. very, very happy to be here today. st. george's chapel windsor, there you are. great symbol of medieval splendor and the perfect setting for today's service. >> thank you. >> we're joined by meredith vieira. how much of an appetite, we've been talking about this, this is big in america. people seem to love it america. we're seeing american tv crews everywhere. >> i think it is very big in american. she's american. a california girl. people my age and actually all ages remember that little boy, harry, and his brother behind his mother's casket. we were all so saddened by that. we've watched these boys grow up and become amazing young men and then for him to fall in love with this very modern woman.
10:41 pm
she has her own voice. proves to me that he has incredibly good taste. what a spend id car that is. inside that car is the bride to be. meghan markle and her mother. we saw them arrive yesterday. see a glimpse of the bride. she's wearing a veil. but for now, not much more than that. it's moving at a stately pace. once the home of another remarkable american.
10:42 pm
the first female to take her seat in the house of commons back in 1919. >> now is an opportune moment. >> yes, sorry. i'm just trying to get that sight of meghan. she is coming past us right now. looking absolutely stunning. she is wearing a long veil. looking happy and relaxed sitting next to her mom doria bursting with pride. you can just imagine what that journey is going to be like for the next 30 minutes. that's how long it will take to get to windsor castle which is 9.5 miles away from here. it's been closed to the public since yesterday evening so this will be the first time they see world press cameras point pointing at them from every angle and of course the huge crowds that will be lining the
10:43 pm
streets waving and cheering them on as they approach st. george's chapel where we will get to see that dress in it's full glory and let me tell you, i'm sure the end result will be stunning. the last person to see the dress of course will be prince harry. what a moment for meghan and what a moment for the royal family in 2018. >> can i just say -- can i just say. >> the three women in this studio all went -- we saw a boat neck and sleeve and veil. >> rather feminine very romantic neck. what i loved was that really nice chunky tiara. i couldn't tell if it was diamonds or pearls or some combination of the two. low bun swept back hair like
10:44 pm
that gossamer like veil. >> you're asking her to call it. >> i mean, i eluded there to the history of cliveden house hotel. i'm wondering as an american when you watch all of this. you're looking at the heart of the british establishment, there's a fresh, american about to enter there. zara phillips making herself as comfortable as one can when one is heavily pregnant but when you see this fresh young american, full of education, full of thoughts and ambition. she has a million dollar smile that the cameras love. she is great and when i say
10:45 pm
performer i mean that in the best sense, she knows how to communicate a message. >> it's interesting because she is so modern and very independent and speaks her mind. so it will be interesting to see once she is married if she will continue to be able to do that because she has so much to say and she has stood up for so many important causes including gender equality which is very important to her. she spoke about that eloquently at the un for years now and i hope that her voice can be heard and i think with harry by her side it will be. i don't know to what extent but he also wants to give folks a voice and they are humanitarians and care about people and together they're a powerful team. they call them the fab 4 for a reason.
10:46 pm
>> that puts windsor on the map. >> not all of britain looks like this. this is a very cliche view of britain. the union jack and so forth but it puts windsor on the map. >> absolutely. we're really not familiar with it. people still thought the wedding was in london, including myself. oh i have to get on the train and go 20 something miles to get here but then when you're here it's like a fairy tale. >> we're seeing beatrice. >> you live and you learn. >> i was being told earlier that it's an up and coming designer, quite knew on the scene already and do you know what, i think they're gorgeous. >> yes. >> really, really understated and beautiful.
10:47 pm
>> there we see the royals. it's the place that she has been on many occasions before. it's another day out really isn't it? >> looking through the order of service. >> i like her ruby red. >> how do you think she epitomizes the modern american woman? >> she never wanted to be one of the ladies that lunch. she wanted to be one of the women who work and that's very much the modern american woman. a doer. someone that stands tall and proud of herself. very independent, works hard which she has done her whole life and she has principles from the time she was 11 and saw this commercial that offended her because she found it sexist and her dad actually said then write a letter and she wrote to among other people, hillary clinton. who was then a first lady and it's a few months later that ad was gone. >> time after time you go back, she's american, she actually had
10:48 pm
to work very hard to get where she is and there's something incredibly admirable about that. >> she gives back as well. she understands she has this platform and she wants to use it for positive things and that proceeds all of this and they were on parallel courses in some way because harry was doing the same thing and then they came together and it felt just like a natural union. >> stay tuned for more of the royal wedding on bbc america. so allstate is giving us money back on our bill. well, that seems fair. we didn't use it. wish we got money back on gym memberships. get money back hilarious. with claim-free rewards. switching to allstate is worth it.

10:53 pm
we will hand over to hugh. >> many thanks. yes, we're keeping a very close eye now on the next group of royals because we already had quite a few members of the royal family come but of course bride on the way. we expect to see the groom very soon with his brother the duke of cambridge. the best man. they'll probably walk down toward the chapel very soon and with me, keeping me company here, two experts, veteran observers. we have the royal commentator and also journalist robert hardeman and the royal correspondent. on a day like today weather wise and event wise. i'm just thinking just before we see the groom and the best man, just thought about this partnership. we saw it back in 2011. a very long time ago and now we're going to see the roles reversed today.
10:54 pm
what are we reading into that? what is our partnership telling us today? >> today we have the most modern royal wedding we have ever had, really. each royal wedding brings with it new developments. new trends in fashion but i think today, it's a sort of extraordinary atmosphere. it's sort of the stars and stripes a long side the union jack. you have hollywood. you have a 1,000 year old castle with 1,000-year-old monarchy as well. it's a fabulous blend of ancient and modern. >> the most modern? >> it is the most modern royal wedding we have ever seen and certainly the most modern worldwide. she's walking herself up the aisle.
10:55 pm
in a week of twists and turns. yes i think as robert said, this match shows that the monarchy has moved. it has moved and modernized and people will be celebrating that today. >> we had a little glimpse inside the car. >> very demure dress. boat neck style. a big tiara. it's hard to see. a veil. doria is looking beautiful in a hat. we think that's burberry but meghan looks magnificent. >> a quick word. one of the big elements of news of today, the big news of today was of course the title for the couple. just a quick word about the title. >> duke of sussex is a royal duke that became extinct in the 1830s. so it faded from view. it was widely expected but duke of sussex. but i think most people will remember him as prince harry of wales. >> we'll be back in just a moment because they're really
10:56 pm
patient and quite now as we have a sense that things are about to happen. >> the scene of all the guests awaiting, studying the splendor in st. george's chapel. >> doesn't look like tom harding. with us now are two more people that have met and worked ian green and the french recipients of the diana legacy award. welcome. first of all, what a remarkable thing to receive. just explain what the award is and why you got it? >> the award is for young people that have been continuing princess diana's legacy in terms of kindness and compassion. >> what did you do to deserve it? >> i was born with hiv and i think it's important that young people born with hiv are able to
10:57 pm

10:58 pm
hiv. >> which is obviously a legacy of his mom. >> absolutely. i was privileged to meet princess diana on a couple of occasions. i can see his mother in the son. they have that passion and empathy for things that they really care about. >> when he took the hiv test there was a 500% increase. that makes a massive, massive difference for getting people to test and normalize hiv testing. >> what is the involvement of such an incredible, right now the world's most high profile couple in something that's so important to you? >> i think they're choosing chiva as one of the 7 charities to contribute too is symbolic of how much they care about hiv as an issue. >> do you have a wish for the couple today? we're all sitting here waiting for the big moment. >> we wish them all the best from chiva. with we're honored they chose

11:07 pm
the people of windsor and beyond are out and this does feel like a very, very special day indeed. >> just to give you a heads up of what will happen next, you can see harry and william arriving. there will be seen on the west steps which is where the couple will come out. >> let's talk about the west steps because as we see, the west steps are very, very porn. >> nearly 200 people. that have a special connection. >> they're becoming the prince and prince william and we hear not just the wonderful sounds of the bells but we see the
11:08 pm
beautiful foliage surrounding the steps there. beautiful sight it is. >> the two brothers going up the steps to the west door, looking at the amazing display of flowers and foliage. the dean of windsor david connor in charge of this service today, reflecting the status of st. george's chapel. this is not under the jurisdiction of the arch bishop of canterbury. it's under the queen's jurisdiction. it's known as a royal peculiar. and answerable to the queen. not to the archbishop at canterbury and that reflects the status of this chapel within windsor and the ancient college
11:09 pm
of windsor and the fact, of course, that this chapel has many, many sanctuaries of royal tradition attached to it. interesting too that today prince harry has opted to wear the uniform of the blues and royals reflecting his army heritage. he does have more senior ranks and more senior uniforms but that tells you something about where he felt most comfortable today. the official office of the prince of wales which we heard performing there in the 20 minutes or so before the brothers arrived. >> so they make their way along the aisle. up toward the choir. they'll be followed a little later of course just before midday by the bride herself who will be joined halfway down the chapel just by the prince of wales that will accompany her for the last section of the procession. during that procession there will be a performance of
11:10 pm
wonderful music and the trumpeter. here we are. the scene outside on the fringes of windsor. and this is is just at the end of the long walk approaching windsor castle itself. where there will be a grand procession by the way after the service. so this is going to be a very familiar sight today. we have there the conductor christopher warren green with his players entertaining the congregation. a quick check on the time and i think that hotel, christopher, they are pretty much on time today and just first of all the sight of the two brothers making their way in. >> very wonderful to see them in their blues and royals uniform. a lot of people thought he might wear his world marine military uniform but they just look so,
11:11 pm
so happy really lovely. >> and wearing the rank of major. i mean, totally equal today. the reason that prince william is wearing the gold. he is an aid to the queen and also both of them t blues and royals means an awful lot to them. particularly to prince harry. it's going to play a key part in today. >> very soon we'll have the prince of whales here. >> unexpected but i think he'll be very pleased. it will be rather wonderful to see the prince of wales at the bridge between the monarch and the future of the royal family. we were supposed to see her father but it will be a good thing for the prince of wales and the royal family and i'm told he was incredibly touched
11:12 pm
that meghan asked him. >> and he was himself married here in 2005. it's a place with incredibly happy memories for him and i think after some of the days, he's just drawn a line under all of that and for the prince to be there, he will be very touched to be right in the heart of it. >> it's not been the easiest in some ways. i mean for meghan certainly of course and this will be put together and they're determined to enjoy it. >> absolutely. >> there's always, the king of spain coming out at the last minute because the honeymoon was going to begin. all of these things always happen. on the day it comes good. these will be the things that people remember. >> so very soon we'll have the
11:13 pm
prince of wales and duchess of cornwall arriving and of course the arrival of her majesty the queen and the duke of edinburgh. >> he is the iron duke. there was never any doubt that he would make. and see him there. >> that wasn't but a month ago i think. >> you know, he wouldn't miss this for the world. he stands his mark on windsor probably more than anyone. it was the duke who helped and designed it and rebuilt it. for him this is a really special day. >> sitting next to david
11:14 pm
beckham. nicholas is short of a few opinions. i'll sure they're enjoying a little bit of banter. >> it's very interesting that just behind david beckham was david manning who is mentor to william and harry and ambassador to america. they mixed up with officials. i like that. >> stay tuned for more of the royal wedding on bbc america. each one is unique in their own way.sa. hot, mild, cheesy, and garlic. i thought it was a costume party. get together already, with tostitos. ♪ ♪

11:19 pm
>> he loves the english music. that was a strong feature of the duke and duchess of cambridge in 2011. people were struck by the way he had taken great care with choosing his favorite composers and listen then and again today you can hear his influence right now. >> i think it is important at this point because it's just 16 minutes to go. we've had one or two glancing references during the morning and we saw it earlier and of course we have the late diana's sister who will be delivering one of the readings. and that again is a powerful statement about her presence still. >> harry will say always, he told me that everything he does in his life and his work he thinks about what his mother would have thought. he is determined to keep her very much alive. meghan is wearing an engagement ring with jewels that belonged to diana. i'm sure this evening there will
11:20 pm
be tributes to diana in the best man speech and she will be felt very much apart of the day as harry said that he missed her. on days like that when he proposed to meghan markle he missed her enormously and is determined to keep her memory with him. >> everyone watching would understand that. on a day like today, you know, there's lots of happiness and joy, but for them to -- >> i think the whole world will remember. thinking back to that 12-year-old boy making an incredibly brave and desperately sad walk in 1997 behind his mother's coffin and these are molts people will not forget that and that's why i think today really does bring that full circle. >> you mentioned earlier, the long walk and because it's a great sight on any day in any
11:21 pm
weather. but today we have been very lucky. they have been lucky but we have all been lucky because there is magnificent. >> you're looking at the largest street party in britain. it's absolutely fabulous. they have been setting out the barriers and expecting 100,000 people. i wouldn't be surprised if that's more than 100,000 people. it's getting back to the treeline there. >> yeah. >> that's 2.5 miles long so let's be very clear. this is a big drive. >> yes. it's a big drive. >> heading back toward the castle there as we'll see later on. this is going to be very familiar to meghan because there you have the george iv entrance to windsor castle and the private apartments over there to the right hand side with the most magnificent gardens there at t moment but that'soing to be the root of the final section of the procession today after the service which will be
11:22 pm
the chance for the crowd to get, may i say, a much better view than we're getting now because she's inside of the car. >> very fast at the moment. >> they'll be getting considerably close. don't worry. >> it is not quite the stately pace it was earlier. >> that will be the big pomp and pageantry moment and that's what i think we do best isn't it? >> absolutely. that's the dividing line. this is the quite solemn bit. >> let's hear it for the rolls royce. it can clearly do something. it can clearly perform. >> absolutely. >> it's elegant and of course it's one that's very familiar on so many royal occasions. the bride making her way into the castle and the next time we see meghan will be when she arrives at the west door. and there waiting for her in the choir will be her future husband
11:23 pm
prince harry and the best man of course, the duke of cambridge. just exchanging a few words of reassurance and advice. they look around slightly nervously but we completely understand that. but you do get a very strong sense here again within such close proximity howell they understand each other and howell they get on. there's a clear one. >> it's lovely to watch there. harry looks nervous and william is clearly joking. just at the end before catherine arrived william looks a little bit nervous and harry was playing the joker and it's lovely to see that role today. >> so they arrive and then they have the choice of sitting in there for quite awhile but wisely they went into another
11:24 pm
little room just to calm down a little bit and gather their thoughts before they enter. so they now have a wait of around 10 minutes before the bride arrives. bride having arrived at the top end of the castle with her mother and final adjustments will be made there before they arrive and within a minute or so of midday. that will be a great fanfare by the state trumpeters. we saw them early on. they will be there and at that moment, harry will know that meghan has arrived at the west door. that is the signal to the world that the service will get underway and the procession will begin and once again, i like to share with viewers how important that moment will be and to take it all in. that will look very dramatic and very different and then of
11:25 pm
course to be joined by the prince of wales to go into the choir itself. we will not have seen anything like it. and dare i say, in most. >> you're absolutely right. it's unpresented for a royal bride to walk herself down an aisle. in fact, actually, serena williams who is sitting in the choir. >> just on the left hand side. >> she did walk herself down the aisle when her father pulled out at the last minute. it's going to look different. it's going to look dramatic, but she was an actress. i'm sure she will be drawing on her poise and experience to make it up to the organ screen where the prince of wales will accompany her. >> if people are expecting the arch bishop of canterbury and dean of windsor, this is going to be a departure because they're going to have the head of the episcopal church in america.
11:26 pm
that will be interesting. >> it will. the archbishop of canterbury taking the backseat role. we talked about how it's going to look different but it's also going to sound different. the state trumpeters composed a special fanfare just for meghan that hasn't been heard before. there will be two. one for the sovereign as there always is and there's going to be very much her own fanfare. what an entrance. >> watching them sitting there. >> stay tuned for more of the royal wedding. of course a lexus is powerful. but if you had any lingering doubts about the acceleration... horsepower... and all-around performance... of a lexus hybrid,

11:31 pm
all of them there for a rather spial reason either cause they're children or friends or children of e royafamily itself and they will be, i think, a lovely sight. and they'll be a nice scene where meghan is accompanied by two page boys who are children of her very good friend. so there we have the mother of the bride making her way in. must be a rather unreal day. she is going to be proud. she is going to be overjoyed but she must be pinching herself in some ways because this is, this is just an experience that nobody could really prepare for, isn't that fair? >> a week ago she was in california packing and thinking what to take to the u.k. yesterday she was having tea with the queen. today she is being watched by
11:32 pm
over a billion people but it's still, it's wonderful family moment. doesn't really matter whether you're being watched by one person or a billion, you're seeing your daughter get married. >> so the rolls royce phantom 6. this one is a 1970s, i think, for those of you who are keen on cars. this is bringing the prince of wales and the dutchess of cornwall to the gallery porch. this is a different entrance which is used by members of the royal family and they will be making their way in directly into the choir. later on of course the prince of wales will be making his way down to the center of st. george's chapel to wait for the bride as she enters just at the stroke of midday. we're just five minutes away from the start of the wedding service of prince harry and meghan markle. so the prince of wales and dutchess of cornwall were
11:33 pm
married in a civil ceremony. and there's her majesty the queen and the duke of edinburgh. her majesty at the age of 92, clearly enjoying the day and the duke of edinburgh who had his share of ill health, delighted to see that at the age of 96, 97 next month, he's able to come and see the wedding today. that's going to be a great source of joy for the couple and the entire country. i have just been told that the queen is wearing a dress by stewart parvin. it's a purple and grey printed silk coat and dress. the hat is by angela kelly. but it will make quite a statement too.
11:34 pm
and there we have the mother of the bride waiting in the choir and just a thought from what doria is thinking at this moment. >> she must be feeling exceptionally proud of her daughter, completely overwhelmed, i'm sure. the queen made her welcome as have the rest of the members of the royal family but she is feeling unbelievably proud that her daughter, an american is about to marry into the royal family and become the duchess of sussex. i'm sure that's something she never thought would happen. >> harry looks nervous. >> he has a bridesmaid and page. family honor at stake here. they both have things to worry about. >> she is the only member of meghan markle's family attending. so she is representing her daughter today. >> we want to see the
11:35 pm
bridesmaids and the page boy. that's what we want and we're about to be treated. making their way down to the lower wards and this is our vantage point. slowly making their way past all the crowds there. some of the 2,000 people invited into the lower ward today. lots of these by the way are either members of the royal household or people part of the windsor castle community but as i was saying earlier, thousands of them have been selected. ♪
11:36 pm
>> trumpeters with the grand fanfare telling everyone that her majesty has arrived at st. george's chapel and we're within minutes of this wedding service taking place. the great window on the east side that was put into the remember prince albert back in the 60 it's a very different window. the duke of edinburgh looking very happy. >> perfect form, clearly elated. >> i know we're also enjoying this scene now. >> what a scene it is. what a scene it is. >> it's a wedding. >> he found out one of the
11:37 pm
bridesmaids was going to be 2 years old. all the mothers just went, what are you thinking? meghan has a huge connection as well and the mulroney kids there. >> ivy is there. she is the daughter of jessica and benedict. they're very close friends of ms. markle. ivy, her brothers will be popping out soon, twin brothers, age 7. they are all behaving very well so far. and they look utterly delightful. what do we make of what the flower girls are wearing? >> it's picture perfect. but what i really love is the confident waving as they came in. no big deal. really greeting the public in a way that i don't think i could do. it's amazing. >> charlotte is getting it down to a tee.
11:38 pm

11:39 pm
out they come. here comes the bride. it looks to be an exquisitely cut and in many ways minimal and traditional dress with a splendid veil. meghan markle the bride is wearing her hair up. the veil is being caught in the may sunshine. >> stunning. >> a wave for the crowd and utterly exquisite dress. >> nervous now. >> do you know what i like about it? it does what i said. it fuses that sophistication that she brings to her outfits but it has that real romance. it's beautiful. absolutely beautiful.

if you don't believe me, think about a time when you first fell in love. the whole world seemed to center around you and your beloved. well there's power. power in love. not just in its romantic form but any form, any shape of love. there's a certain sense in which when you are loved and you know it, when someone cares for you and you know it, when you love and you show it, it actually feels right. there's something right about it. and there's a reason for it. the reason has to do with the source. you were made by a power of love. and our lives were meant and are meant to be lived in that love.
11:59 pm
that's why we are here. ultimately the source of love is god himself. the source of all of our lives. there's an old medieval poem that says where true love is found god himself is there. the new testament says it this way, beloved, let us love one another because love is of god and those who love are born of god and know god. those who do not love, do not know god. why? for god is love. there's power in love. there's power in love to help and heal when nothing else can. there's power in love to lift up and liberate when nothing else will. there's power in love to show us the way to live.
12:00 am
set me as a seal on your heart. a seal on your arm. for love it is strong as death. but love is not only about a young couple. and the power of love is demonstrated by the fact that we're all here. two young people fell in love and we all showed up. but it's not just for and about a young couple who we rejoice with. it's more than that. jesus of nazareth, on one occasion was asked by a lawyer to sum up the essence of the teachings of moses and he went back and reached back into the hebrew scriptures and jesus said you should love the lord your god with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind and all
12:01 am
your strength. this is the first and great commandment and the second is like it, love your neighbor as yourself. and then in matthews version he added, he said, on these two, love of god and love of neighbor hangs all the laws, all the prophets, everything that moses wrote, everything in the holy prophet, everything that god has been trying to tell the world, love god. love your neighbors. and more than anything, love yourself. someone once said that jesus began most revolutionary movement in all of human history, a movement grounded in the unconditional love of god for the world and a movement mandating people to live that love and in so doing, to change not only their lives but the very life of the world itself. i'm talking about power. real power.
12:02 am
power to change the world. if you don't believe me, well, there's a place in america's antebellum south that explained the dynamic power of love and why it has the power to transform. they sang a spiritual even in the midst of their captivity. it's a healing balm, something that can make things. to make the wounded whole. there is a balm in gilead to
12:03 am
heal the soul. stanza says if you cannot preach like peter and you cannot pray like paul, you just tell the love of jesus, how he died to save us all. his way of love is the way of life. he died to save us all. he didn't die for anything he could get out of it. jesus did not get an honorary doctorate for dying. he wasn't getting anything out of it. he gave up his life. he sacrificed his life for the good of others. for good of the other. for the wellbeing of the world for us. that's what love is. love is not selfish. love can be sacrificial. and in so doing, it counts redemptive. unselfish, sacrificial redemptive love changes lives.
12:04 am
and it can change this world. if you don't believe me, just stop and think or imagine. think and imagine. think and imagine a world where love is the way. imagine our homes and families when love is the way. imagine neighborhoods and communities where love is the way. imagine government and nations where love is the way. imagine business and commerce when love is the way. imagine this tired old world when love is the way. when love is the way. unselfish, sacrificial,
12:05 am
redemptive. when love is the way. then no child will go to bed hungry in this world ever again. when love is the way we will make justice roll down like a mighty stream and righteousness like an ever flowing brook. when love is the way, poverty will become history. when love is the way, the earth will be a sanction ware. when love is the way we will lay town our sword and shields down by the riverside to study war. no more. when love is the way there's plenty good room for all of god's children. and when love is the way, we actually treat each other well,
12:06 am
like we are actually family. when love is the way. we know the source and we are brothers and sisters. children of god. brothers and sisters a new heaven, a new earth, a new world, a new human family. and let me tell you something, solomon was right in the old testament that fire -- with this, i'll sit down. we got to get you all married. a french jesuit was arguably one of the great mind, great spirits
12:07 am
of the 20th century, a jesuit, roman catholic priests, a scientist, a scholar, a mystic. some of his writings said and others have that the discovery of invention or harnessing of fire was one of the great scientific and technological discoveries in all of human history. fire to a great extent made human civilization possible. fire made it possible to cook food and to provide sanitary ways of eating which reduced the spread of disease and fire made it possible to heat warm environments and there made human migration around the world a possibility, even in the colder climate. fire made it possible. there was no bronze age without
12:08 am
fire, no iron age without fire, no industrial revolution without fire. they're greatly dependent on the human ability and capacity to take fire and use it for human good. anybody get here in a car today? an automobile? nod your heads if you did. i know there were some carriages. but those of us that came in cars, fire is a controlled harness. fire made that possible. i know that the bible says and i believe it that jesus walked on the water but i have to tell you i didn't walk across the atlantic ocean to get here. controlled fire in that plane brought me here. fire makes it possible for us to text and tweet and e-mail and instagram and facebook and socially be dysfunctional with each other. fire makes all of that possible and greatest discovery in all of human history.
12:09 am
he then went onto say if humanity ever harnesses the energy of fire again, if humanity ever captures the energy of love, it would be the second time in history that we have discovered fire. dr. king was right. we must discover love. the redemptive power of love. and when we do that, we will make of this old world a new world. my brother, my sister, god love you, god bless you, and may god hold us all in those almighty

12:57 am
sometimes when the queen welcomes world leaders here for state visits. there's a comparable show as the procession will come up to the castle. we'll see is unlike anything. it's going to be the longest, i think, procession through the streets of windsor we've seen in a very long time. >> and you mentioned the extraordinary training and precision that goes into this. these horses have actually special training to cope and prepare them for the crowds they'll see and hear. they have -- they are, i'm told, ear muffs and earplugs in their ears to help them cope with the noise of the crowds. what's lovely on for this mounted escort is to see the groom in his household cavalry blue uniform. that will be especially nice. >> passing victoria monument down castle hill, turning left up to raptures of fans welcoming

1:04 am
a couple of tours of afghanistan, i believe, and i think he served as a radio operator in prince harry's troop. lots of personal links here today. some of which are not so obvious but it's worth underlining how much thought has gone into this procession as well. >> it's wonderful to see the mounted escort of the house of cavalry. there's another lovely personal link between the commanding officer james gazely and harry. his sister was a bridesmaid at charles and diana's wedding and his father, trained the prince of wales as a young jockey. a wonderful personal link there. fantastic to see the house of cavalry mounted regiment doing their thing, doing what they do best, the pomp and pageantry, makes us feel very proud, doesn't it? >> certainly does, as they come past victoria barracks there. colonel gazely was riding the same horse last week competing
1:05 am
in show jumping in front of the quoo queen. >> interesting that victoria barracks on the left seem quite modern but there's barracks there since, i think, the 18th century. at least the end. 18th century. of course, much enlarged now. the regiments have saved at victoria in turn. yes, they take their turn there. >> they change the guard at windsor castle. now the whole procession coming into king's road. i walked down there yesterday. everyone's been working very hard on their gardens, very hard on their bunting. you'll see a lot of stars and stripes as well, which is a nice touch. and canadian maple leafs. canadians are keen to claim the pride. >> commonwealth is a big theme not only in the bride's wedding dress and veil, she had every single flower of the commonwealth, every 53 flowers
1:06 am
of t commonwealth embroidered onto it. >> maybe which is why it was so long. it was a nice touch. the queen's coronation gown had all the commonwealth. then it only had eight, now there's 53. >> 200 members of the armed forces serving today in various ceremonial roles. lots with links to prince harry. the irish guards, very prominent today because 1st battalion irish guards have been on duty and, indeed, we have wonderful musicians of the irish guard's band performing for us at windsor castle. they've been hard at work all day as well. lots of individual members and then different serving groups and regiments involved. all of them selected for their links. >> all services involved.
1:07 am
>> people have made a huge effort, a huge effort to decorate their homes. lots of them, indeed. we were just here two or three days ago and people were preparing at that point when, you know, frankly, the town was not so busy. but they were determined to have a great day. time and again, people were talking about the weather. and, you know, there's always a bit of a gamble in may. this has been a gamble that's paid offhand somely. now what we see on the procession is just completing the rotation around the center of town before, eventually we'll get to the most spectacular part of all, which is the long walk through windsor great park. we saw the car earlier speeding through. this will be a very different experience. of course, with the household cavalry in attendance providing the escort, it's going to be one of the most memorable images of the day without any question. >> absolutely. it's going to be an utterly
1:08 am
spectacular sight. i think the couple will be extremely relieved. windsor could not look more stunning. this is exactly the picture of winds windsor, of great britain we want to see at the moment. >> the queen's garden, you couldn't have picked another time than may for a wedding. all the castles are at its best. when the weather is like this, it's going to be the most fabulous global picture of britain. as we can already see, people on one side of the road. in a moment they're going to charge across into the other to the park so they can get a second look at the couple coming back. we were expecting big crowds but these have exceeded all expectations. there's no room on that pavement for any more people. >> thames valley police working hard as well in windsor. let's give them the credit they're due. i would like at this point just to acknowledge those members of the armed forces who are street

lining because that's a pretty arduous duty on a day like today when the temperatures are so high. royal navy and small ships diving. prince harry appointed chief of ships and diving a couple of years ago. harry was appointed captain general of the marines in december of last year, taking over from the duke of edinborough, who had held that title, by the way, for 64 years. so, that's very much rich family heritage. the army air corps is taking part, the rifles. we saw two gurka officers opening the doors for some of the cars arriving. 1st battalion irish gauards, i mentioned them, and r.a.f. h honington. just to underline, you know, they're all here for a reason. yes, it's not by accidents. they're all here because they
1:10 am
have a personal bond with prince harry today. >> prince harry has often talked so, so movingly about how his ten years serving in the armed forces shaped him. and it's so -- i mean, for that reason it's so wonderful to see so many of the regiments he's closely linked with here today. some of who have been there ron! soh really? going on at schwab. thank you clients? well jd power did just rank them highest in investor satisfaction with full service brokerage firms...again. and online equity trades are only $4.95... i mean you can't have low cost and be full service. it's impossible. it's like having your cake and eating it too. ask your broker if they offer award-winning full service and low costs. how am i going to explain this? if you don't like their answer, ask again at schwab. schwab, a modern approach to wealth management.

1:15 am
this point, as we see them here, newly married couple ready to embark on this fantastic journey back to windsor castle and the reception that will take place in a short while. a reception hosted by her majesty the queen. a private message later this evening at frogmore. as we look at them now, just a thought from both of you two about the kind of lives they plan to lead. the kind of things they intend to do. what can we say about what they want to achieve and the kind of places they want to go to? >> as i made very clear in their inte vi interview, when they were engaged, prince harry will be a commonwealth youth ambassador, just as they turn onto the long walk for the beginning of what is the centerpiece of this procession. and i think the common wealth, we've seen touches of it all through the surface. it's going to be an extremely important part of their lives. i think traveling through the commonwealth. we don't know where the honeymoon is. it's going to be somewhere in
1:16 am
the commonwealth and that is definitely part of their future. >> well, we know as well that they are literally going to hit the ground running. while they -- as soon as their back from their honeymoon, they are going to be doing quite a lot of travel. we think there's possibly a trip to dublin being considered, maybe the netherlands, too. of course, in the autumn they will embark on a big commonwealth tour to australia, invictus games, possibly fiji. i think reinvigorating the commonwealth, as you said. >> traveling escort leading the carriage right along. the long walk, which is in the heart of windsor gray park. this really is the highlight of this procession. >> that shot we can see coming down the long walk, all 2.65 miles of it is pretty spectacular, isn't it? look at that.
1:17 am
>> and the sight of just the national grace of duchess of essex. as she sits in the open ascot landau with the windsor grays. one is getting out of line. there she is, waving entirely, it seems, at home, which is quite something because this today is quite a crowd. >> at the end of this they'll go through cambridge gate, we saw earlier on. the duchess of sussex, maybe the second person to call her that. the carriage will go through and reach the private grounds and they'll go to the reception after photographs. >> the photographs are interesting. we know that alexi, who is unusual. he usually takes pictures of gwyneth paltrow, stars, beyonce,
1:18 am
but today he'll take six photographs of all the royal party, including all astonishingly well behaved, the flower girls and page boys who helped the royal couple onto the west steps of st. george's chapel today. the crowd made up of so many people who has come out. we reckon it's 21 degrees with a light breeze here in windsor. when harry's parents got married in 1981 it was a scorching 21 degrees. we're lucky today. >> the queen will host the reception in st. george's hall in windsor castle for the guests and the congregation. and the chief -- head chef of the royal household is mark flanagan. the main focus is food in season. coming from kent, the garden of england, as well as, and nor folg. >> and the cake. there's been a lot of chat about the cake.
1:19 am
the cake is elderflower and lemon. we saw a beautiful -- great big plate of sicilian lemons on the instagram account of claire ptak, who is making the cake. intere interest spe with. meghan markle is used to being composed. this is a very different role. this woman seems very natural, very connected. not acting through a huge event, which she might have been expected to do. for every moment of the service, as she sits by her husband, she is beaming with a smile and taking in what is surely the view of a lifetime. >> can we take a moment as well
1:20 am
just to talk about her entrance into the chapel, into the nave, where she was on her own. that was quite something, wasn't it? >> that was a remarkable scene. i think it takes a great deal of self-possession and composure at a moment when maybe more an ever you want an arm to lean on. in the days that led up to this magnificent days, she has not had her troubles to seek. the fact her father was unable to come due to his health mept she had to make the decision, how was she going to enter the chapel. how was she going to meet the man who was about to become her husband. she chose to do it on her own. with those 7-year-old twins holding her train. they did a good job of that. the composure it took is quite something. but she had it. >> she did. as the world watches windsor today, we reckon a worldwide audience of 1.9, maybe nudging 2
1:21 am
billion. i think britain is showing its best face. the sun is out. not a cloud in the sky. and these people, of course, on the long walk, some of whom have been there since thursday. many of whom have come today in through the train station. and this is the site they've been waiting to see. the crowd's come to an end on the long walk and then it is the private garden that the royal couple will move into. the cheers will be just a distant sound and maybe they'll have a few moments just to enjoy each other's company before it's time for photos and time to meet the 600-odd guests. we witnessed a service like no
1:22 am
other royal wedding. >> and as the royal couple always make their way through the cambridge gate, let's see what the atmosphere's like right down there on the long walk with alex. >> and well she might take a moment -- >> absolutely. >> she might take a moment.
1:23 am
and i think they might -- who knows what they're saying to each other. that's private and between them but i think they might take a moment to congratulate each other. after getting through what is an intensely private moment under such scrutiny. as harry walked down to st. george's chapel earlier today just after 11:00, i thought he had a look of ate slightly nervous groom about him, but not anymore. the smile is broad. the wave is confident. he got his gal. >> he did. very happy man now, isn't it? you can now reserve a car online and carmax will hold it for you up to seven days, for free.

the moment you realize the gardening gene skipped a generation. at lowe's our "grow together" planting system takes the guess work out of creating a beautiful yard.
1:28 am
still a big crowd here. what i'd like to do for a couple of minutes is to tell you what's going on inside the castle. the reception that's happening and what you think has been . . . and the role of the military today is so personal to harry as we know he's seen two tours of afghanistan, there are 250 members of the armed services who are involved in making sure this splendid pit of pangeantry it should be. necessity are all service men that harry knows well and has served with. what a shot. somebody's been out with a mower.
1:29 am
>> for the last week. day in, day out. >> a beautiful scene. >> didn't let it down, did he? >> no, he didn't. >> and so the household cavalry can be proud that, well as they always do, they did their best. a splendid parade around windsor. it's been a treat for every single person who came along, who waved their flag, who stood patiently to see the royal couple, the duke and duchess of sussex. >> well, that was a moment everybody here, thousands of people on the long walk were waiting for, the procession. and it was worth it! absolutely perfect.
1:30 am
we have cried all the tears here. oh, my gosh, there was a collective awe when harry lifted the veil. >> the look of love between them. >> the kiss, the kiss. >> yeah, the look of love for me. he couldn't take his eyes off her, could he? >> it was a -- >> it was terrifying. >> you lost your harry. >> i lost my harry. >> but you still got the tiara. >> you wanted meghan but loved it. >> i'm very hurt about it but it was beautiful. it was a beautiful situation. >> it's maybe the last royal wedding for a long time but it was absolutely perfect. now for jig on a good dose of proce prosecco, cheers. >> the look of love. >> that's where the party is. >> i know where i'm going. >> she looked absolutely gorgeous. >> there's so much to talk about. do stay with us on the bbc because now we've seen the dress. now we've seen the guests and now we wanted to talk to two people who have stayed with us to watch all of that.
1:31 am
there's no other word but magnificent. meredith vieira, first of all, what did you make by that? >> i was absolutely blown away. it was absolutely beautiful. >> we're in a flight path here. these planes coming in, i can only imagine the pilot, if they say, if you look to the left and there is this unbelievable scene unfolding. i thought it was magical. you talked about her grace and how confident she was. she's been that way since she was a little girl. if you look back at all the film, she carried herself with dignity and you saw it today. what stayed with me were her freckles. she used to talk about being biracial, being proud of both races and feeling she never fit into either. to me -- and being told to cover her freckles. to me that was almost symbolic that today, i'm meghan markle, you are looking at me. what a sight to behold. >> meredith, there is this lovely moment when the carriage
1:32 am
procession came down. the household cavalry turned around, you definitely know how to do weddings. >> you definitely know how to do weddings. >> at the end of the day, they were just two people in love. you saw it so clearly. they just really, really love each other. >> we'll talk to you a little more later but briefly, your thoughts on the dress? >> absolutely stunning. nailed it. smashed it. superb. just absolutely, as i said before, the perfect fusion of modernity and romance. >> it was a refined modernity, wasn't it? it was absolutely appropriate to the location and absolutely her. >> exquisite. it was just superb. >> let's go to anita. >> james, how was that? >> i thought reverend curry address was sensation. meghan was beautiful. everyone was clapping along with the music. it was probably the best wedding
1:33 am
i've ever been to. >> we were part of it, but for you to be there and feel -- what was the emotion look? was there an atmosphere? >> of course. i think when the doors opened and meghan walked out on her own, that was an incredible statement. she looked amazing. everyone's head turned. as soon as the service started, you could feel electricity in the air. everyone was singing. i kept my singing voice to a minimum. i didn't want to upset anyone. i have no skill when it comes to singing whatsoever. >> you have all the rugby skill so we forgive you. all royal weddings are memorable but that was a game-changer. >> i think so, for a number of levels. but more than anything else, the reverend's address. the world's in a bit of turmoil and i think for someone to cut through that, speak very clearly. it was obviously to celebrate harry and meghan's day but talk about loving people a bit more. you know, we should be more accepting. and i think -- i think it was amazing. i think it will go down in history for a long time.
1:34 am
>> you look very smart, james. you have a lovely lunch to get to. >> thank you. >> we could do half an hour on the bishop's address, couldn't he? >> yeah. that might be a whole other program. news just in, james is tone deaf. good to know he's bad at something. it's been a terribly exciting -- i was going to say exhausting day but exhilarating. exhilarating day. how are they feeling in los angeles where they have been up all night watching. >> well, the sun is rising here in los angeles, in santa monica. it's been fascinating joining this viewing party and just watching them watch their hometown girl join the british royal family 5,500 miles away. it wasn't just that you could see the emotion, you could feel it as well. the silence as the car rolled up to the chapel, the cheers as you expect as we saw the dress for the first time. meghan's old head teacher was
1:35 am
standing just in front of me crying. she had her arm around her son who had been in class with meghan. and another interesting thing, just the perspective of being a brit here, watching this, you got an absolute sense of the impact that this is having globally. your afternoon there is just beginning. our long night is over. it's time for bed here. i leave you with this comment as i was watching the service. there was a girl sitting next to me who lent over to her friend and whispered to her, this marriage is going to change the world. and i think that is the feeling of the people who have watched it here in los angeles. >> richard, thank you so much. >> well, may i say you look please keep your shoes on! stop messing with your sister! hey! hey! don't make me come back there! so? feels really good.... yeah, i'm gonna buy it. (vo) customer service that goes. enterprise makes it easy.

1:40 am
still a big crowd in the ward here at windsor castle. what i'd like to do for a couple minutes now is just tell you what's going on inside the castle. the reception that's happening and what we think's going on in terms of what's been laid on, what it tells us again about the nature of today's events. >> well, they've got a traditional reception at st. george's halib hall, but with af traditional and nontraditional touches. we learned recently they started growing their own sparkling wine at windsor. the queen was serving it at the commonwealth summit. they could be having some of the queen's own wine. >> done well? >> it went down extremely well. they made their own ice cream here. so, you know, it's going to be home ingrients.
1:41 am
>> well, the kitchens he have been cooking something like 800 years. you know, with a bit of modernization in between. so, just in terms of what's happening at lunchtime and then the private reception this evening which does involve a reduced number of people. that's also been the source -- >> 200 who made it onto the elite list. we'll have speech from the queen and probably the prince of wales. tonight the reception starts at frogmore house. that's under wraps. you can read about it in "the "sun-times"" tomorrow. >> the royal marines are making their way through the center of windsor. what i'd like to do quickly is ask for that highlight of the day because, to be fair, you know, wea've got a choice in terms of not just the arrival of the bride and the emergence of the dress, but actually there were several special moments. first you, robert, what's the highlight? >> i think the highlight has to
1:42 am
be the music. the music in the chapel. monarchy is all about bridging the past with the present. and i think it was a glorious fusion there of the very best of english tradition. the fabulous gospel choir. it just brought past and present together beautifully. >> for me it's seeing meghan incredibly composed, walking herself up the aisle. the dress by clare waight keller was spectacular. the sense of humor in the chapel was fabulous. >> it's been great to have you with us, both of you. thank you for joining the event. nice to have you both. thank you very much, indeed. with that, let's join dominique. >> thank you, hugh. so, incredible procession, meredith and jo. >> the dress, the dress, the dress, it was absolutely worth the wait and the surprise. it was pure class.
1:43 am
i think that's the word, isn't it? >> when he lifted her veil. >> that was beautiful. >> and the veil in itself, laden with symbolism. preside the symbols of the commonwealth sewn into that. >> and with meghan totally considered. like a real world view and really thinking about everything. i don't actually think the actual designer, the fact she used the first female artistic director of givenchy, i don't think that's an accident. i think she's considered all of those elements when she's made this decision. >> i also loved watching her mom, doria, the only family member that was here for meghan. and this has to be for her an incredible whirlwind. she maintained the same dignity and class of her daughter, you saw. >> a real composure to her all the way through. >> the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree. the thing about doria ragland, given the amount of -- i'm sure it's background noise to a degree, but the amount of press and media speculation, the
1:44 am
chatter, much not good, that's happened around her family. to be there, the person she is, and conducted herself in the way she's probably always conducted herself, but to do it under the spotlight is something. >> and for all the things that happened over the past week, meghan markle has said in the past her dad was such an important part of her life growing up. so, i'm sorry. i'm really saddened that he couldn't be here for this moment. >> there was a beautiful tender moment, though, when meghan was walked down by the prince of wales and prince harry just mouthed very quietly, thank you, pa. an intimate moment. let's go over now to anita. >> will and gorgeous wife cara, don't you both look sensational. how was that experience? >> extraordinary. we had one of the best loo stops ever. we went out to go to the loo and we had a half decent seat. we came back and there wasn't a seat in the house. they were going to put me on one side, and then our mate said,
1:45 am
oh, there's two seats over here. right at the front. the next people that walk by is will and harry -- >> you saw you smiling at him. >> we were smiling at the seat, not him. how am i here? it was like pot/kettle black. >> what were the highlights for you? >> apart from the seat, which was amazing, it was -- i mean, the choir was incredible. it was seamless. it was amazing. the people, everyone was so friendly all chatting. it was very relaxed. it didn't feel official. we were laughing, joking, warm. it was a room full of happiness. it was incredible. the whole -- the entire wedding was just -- magical. >> i think that happiness is seeping out of the walls of the chapel, into everyone's televisions across the nation. >> we've been talking about the magnificent music at the service today.
1:46 am
when the bride down the aisle, we heard the fantastic voice of the soprano. we do know each other pretty well. we're old friends. it was fantastic. how was it for you? >> very exciting. i got the c in the mdle of march saying they would like to walk into "a light divine," i screamed a bit but i thought, what a perfect thing to sing to. i sung it at one other wedding but this was such a special event all around. it's been a beautiful day. >> lovely atmosphere. >> yes. >> which you helped to set, to be fair to you. >> thank you. >> and i'm just wondering, what is the challenge of performing on this kind of stage? you're no stranger to performing but on this kind of stage, does it make a difference? >> the biggest stress was how fast she was going to walk because, of course, it's all down to it's her moment. you don't want to too fast. you don't want to arrive with three minutes to spare, you don't want her to miss getting there. there was so much planning. the rehearsal was a tightly
1:47 am
woven embroidery. it's been really well set up. the most important thing is it felt like a family and friends wedding. standing up in those moment looking out, nothing but smiles. very relaxed faces. i saw prince harry at the start. he said, good luck. i said, more good luck to you. everyone was happy to be there. >> you can tell us who you were most thrilled to meet today. >> i met george clooney. >> that's very honest of you. [ speaking foreign language ] >> i mean be, it really was that kind of emotional ceremony. whatever your age, wherever you came from, you really felt it. we had some school kids from st. george who watched it on the grass behind me. i'll start with you, because you came from londonderry, standing here, listening to that ceremony, absolutely worth the wait. >> worth the wait, worth the travel and worth the pressure of
1:48 am
getting here. so, yeah, it was amazing. an amazing day. >> may i say for my two cents, you look absolutely fantastic. >> thank you. >> for you, what was so special about the ceremony? >> just being able to be here and be a part of it was just magical. the atmosphere and when the royals passed they acknowledged us, so that was very special. >> i know you got to share with your mom as well. catherine, where are you? we have to chat live on bbc1. lovely to see you. you're only steps away from your school. it must have been an incredible occasion. for you it was amazing to see the royals came down. >> yes, we saw william and harry. they waved at us and we got to say hello to them. it was great. >> you go to school literally over there. >> yep, just down the steps. we have a very close bond with the chapel and the castle so it's very special. >> of course. i know this is a day none of you will ever forget. i'm so glad we got to share it

1:55 am
one thing, it's an important conclusion to draw today, it's a very different kind of royal wedding service so the one lots of us even imagined. even though we were told it would be more modern. this unique pattern of the service, which led us to such a joyous conclusion. it's been great to be here. thanks for watching. we're going to join you once again. >> thank you. the best weddings i've ever been to, where everyone comes out and says the most wonderful thing about it, it was a room full of happiness. it takes something. it takes something for people to come out and that be the underlying emotion. a room full of happiness, right? >> highlights for you, briefly. >> well, gosh, i think that tiara and just -- frankly, just as dermott said, the choir, the absolute love in the room. i can't stop smiling. imagine being the bride. >> total love in the room. i don't know if the reception will be anything like an
1:56 am
american wedding reception, but i guarantee a drunk or tipsy aunt or uncle will say, when are you going to have a baby? it will start today. >> that's the sentiment the world over. >> there were two highlights for me. one was when i heard "stand by me," which was extraordinary. that very intimate moment between the bride and groom where we saw the dean of windsor say, in which children are all, talking about marriage, and both of them could not help but a smile play across their lips. i don't know if a hand was squeezed but something traveled between them. of course, we hope, will be the next page of their story, where they give to us a gorgeous little product of their union and we can enjoy that, too, because there was something of the intimacy between the two of them that this seems particularly poignant. >> we would be remiss if we didn't mention bishop curry before we left. i don't think any church in

england has seen an address like that before. >> i heard a noise and it might have been jaws hitting the floor in st. george's chapel. >> that is typical in america. you would not be surprised by that. >> meredith, it's not typical here. as you know. thank you so much, both of you, for all of your thoughts. it's been fabulous to share what's been an enormous festive day. >> best to the couple. >> that's just about it from us for now. it's been really, truly a wonderful occasion. enjoyed by millions around the world. possibly even billions. and if you want to relive it all over again, you can join us later this evening for our highlight show. that will be on bb dc2 at 7:00 p.m. >> brilliant and annoyingly because we can't have a cup of bubbly. we'll leave you with some of the most memorable moments. from all of us here and the bbc team, thank you, bye-bye. ♪ ♪ this thing called love
