Coverage of the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey will begin at 1 a.m. PT on Friday, April 29.

An estimated one million well-wishers are expected to descend on London to witness the royal wedding, and the British government estimates two billion viewers around the world will watch the nuptials live on TV.
About 1,900 people were invited to the ceremony. The guest list includes foreign royal dignitaries, like Bahrain's Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, and celebrities like Elton John and David and Victoria Beckham.
Prince William and his best man Prince Harry will arrive at Westminster Abbey at 2:15 a.m. PT.
Queen Elizabeth II will arrive at the Abbey at 2:45 a.m. PT.
Kate Middleton will head to the Abbey from her hotel at 2:51 a.m. PT.
