Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Will you be watching the ceremony? Something I learned this week (lol) is that Meghan Markle, future wife of Prince Harry, loves to eat pasta. One of her go-to recipes is cacio e pepe pasta which is easy enough to make on a weeknight.

On Saturday, May 19, the ceremony itself begins at noon London time, meaning
 7 am ET/4 am PT.

If you prefer to watch straightforward live network TV coverage,  CBS’s coverage starts at 4 am. ET with a preshow hosted by Gayle King and Kevin Frazier, and will include a two-hour special airing at 8 pm on Saturday. NBC is sending the hosts of the Today show to Windsor Castle for its coverage, which will begin at 4:30 am ET Saturday.

McVities biscuits, PG Tips, scones with English clotted cream and assorted jams will be served for the Big Day. We'll rise at 5 a.m. for breakfast tea for two and view the wedding. No big deal for us since we get up at 5 a.m. every day for work. And yes we are suckers for these weddings.

A tray makes our breakfast tea perfectly portable. 

When my husband was in the Peace Corps in Montserrat, he purchased a booklet of stamps that were designed to mark the occasion of the Royal Wedding of H. R. H. The Prince of Wales to Lady Diana Spencer. The designs were based upon Royal Yachts from the mid-seventeenth century to the present day. He has always had a special place in his heart for Princess Diana ;o)

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. Such a sweet post! I am not sure when I will watch it..but I am sure to see photos after:) Should be beautiful! I think today is the picnic at Castle Cottage w/ Susan Branch..:)

  2. Cute post Debbie. pasta is always a favorite. Love the tray with the tea and goodies. Happy watching.

  3. I was stationed in England when Charles and Diana got married, quite the event! Then was glued to the TV for William and Kate (such a cute couple!). For some reason I'm not as into this one, but that doesn't mean things won't change and I find myself watching with a cuppa:@) Happy Mother's Day Weekend Debbie-enjoy!

  4. Sweet. I have several friends who are totally intrigued with royal weddings, but I'll likely catch it afterward, as Mr.P. won't be enthralled with all the hoopla and detail. Even though we've watched Suits for its 7 season run, Mr. P. just realized yesterday tbat Meghan is biracial, that's how little he paid attention. 🙃

  5. Sounds like a lot of fun! Except the 5am part! I'll catch up at 7 :)

  6. I'm sure the wedding will be wonderful! Looking forward to seeing all the photos and the hats :) What a cute way to honor the wedding, Debbie, and those stamps of Joe's are quite the collectors item now I would think! Happy Mother's Day, Debbie! ♥

  7. Wow, loved seeing Joe's stamps, Debbie! I'll be watching, as I love weddings, and remember watching William and Kate's royal wedding. Wish I could join you for your breakfast treats.

  8. I am so excited about the wedding! We will be watching it, and FYI we drink PG Tips every morning. We can't help ourselves. We love builders' tea! My daughter bought me a box full of British treats for Mother's Day to enjoy during the wedding. :D

    The stamps are so cool. I love seeing them! :D

  9. I won't be setting my alarm but I know there will be plenty of recaps of the days event's to see afterwards. Enjoy!


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
