How to Celebrate the Royal Wedding in Miami

This Saturday, the world will watch Prince Harry and Meghan Markle marry at St. George's Chapel in Windsor.

Although the wedding ceremony will be private, about 350,000 people are expected to travel to the English city to watch the carriage processional afterward. The processional will travel from the chapel to Windsor Castle, where the newlyweds will begin their lives together.

The ceremony is scheduled to begin at noon, which translates to 7 a.m. in Miami. All major TV stations are expected to broadcast the pomp and spectacle live.

If you haven't booked your flight to England, don't fret: Miami restaurants and shops will celebrate the wedding with special treats, an English tea, and viewing parties.

The National Hotel. The South Beach hotel will host a breakfast featuring a live broadcast of the royal nuptials. The event begins at 7 a.m. and costs $40 per person. Enjoy breakfast and a complimentary mimosa. Wear your best headdress for a chance to win a complimentary brunch for two at Tamara’s Bistro. 1677 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-532-2311; nationalhotel.com. Purchase tickets at eventbrite.com.

Her Royal Household. British celebrity chef Andy Bates will host a celebratory British tea, beginning at a civilized 10:30 a.m. Expect English treats such as tea served in vintage China cups, scones and jam, mini sausage rolls, cucumber sandwiches, Victoria sponge cake, and the Royal Sip champagne cocktail.
