CNN’s Piers Morgan, Anderson Cooper and Richard Quest will provide extensive coverage throughout April of the biggest royal wedding event since Charles married Diana – from the ceremonial to the personal, from the events at Westminster Abbey to the reactions of those around the world.

This will culminate in CNN’s special live seven-hour broadcast ‘A Royal Wedding’ beginning at 7.00pm on April 29, the day of the wedding, where Morgan, Cooper and Quest will host full coverage until 2.00am the following morning. 

Firstly, Richard Quest sets the scene ahead of the big day with a weekly series throughout April of observations and insights, guests and reports.  Beginning on Monday April 26th, Piers Morgan’s coverage kicks off as he broadcasts his nightly show from London with a mix of topical guests and newsmakers. Anderson Cooper will anchor AC360 live from London from Wednesday April 27 through Friday April 29.

“As the tension and excitement builds in the days before the Royal Wedding, CNN intends to be a visual real-time diary of the many and varied ways that people around the world choose to mark and experience the marriage of Prince William and Catherine Middleton,” said Katherine Green, Senior Vice President and General Manager for CNN International.  “The wedding day itself will capture the imagination of millions of viewers and CNN guarantees its global audience a front row seat for every minute of the pomp and ceremony of the big day.”
