Scarlett Moffatt lands BBC Royal Wedding presenting role

07 May 2018

Television coverage will be led by presenters Kirsty Young, Huw Edwards, Dermot O'Leary, Ore Oduba, Anita Rani, Tina Daheley and Alex Jones on BBC One. They will be joined by a range of guests, including those who know Harry and Meghan personally, as well as friends of the royal family.

Scarlett Moffatt has come a long way from her parents sofa - and is now acting as correspondent for the BBC's Royal Wedding coverage.

They will be joined by news anchor Edwards on the night before the wedding to present a special Friday night preview show called The Royal Wedding: They're Getting Married In The Morning.

Kirsty Young and Dermot O'Leary will be based beside the moat at the castle, with the other four presenters being on location across Windsor. The royal wedding will also be aired on ITV and Sky News. "So proud to announce I'll be one of the wedding correspondents for the BBC for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big day. It's always great to get out from behind the news desk, and with this live day of coverage we'll be bringing BBC viewers the latest from Windsor as the excitement builds throughout the day".

Ms Markle and the prince will marry at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle at midday, before travelling through the Berkshire town in a carriage at 13:00 GMT.

Scarlett will be providing hourly updates for Radio 1's shows throughout the day, live from outside Windsor Castle.

More than 1,000 members of the public, including charity workers and school children, have been invited to the grounds of Windsor Castle for the wedding. Mr. Thomas Markle and Ms. Doria Ragland will be arriving in the United Kingdom in the week of the wedding, allowing time for Prince Harry's family, including The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to spend time with them before the big day.

Kensington Palace says the couple hope it "will be a memorable moment for everyone who has gathered together in Windsor to enjoy the atmosphere of this special day".

In the week leading up to the wedding, BBC One daytime series Royal Recipes will see presenter Michael Buerk mark the forthcoming big day by recreating royal wedding dishes past and present.
