The duo seemed very happy on receiving the exclusive pass to cover the wedding that marks an important moment in the history of the monarchy.


As reported in an article published by Entertainment Daily, next month, the Today show will be heading to Windsor, England, to cover the Royal Wedding between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, on May 19.

Anchors Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb will be hosting the Today show from an exclusive location facing the Windsor Castle where the wedding ceremony is scheduled to take place.

At the most-anticipated royal event in modern times, the pair will be joined by other hosts including Megyn Kelly, Al Roker, Sheinelle Jones and Kathie Lee Gifford.

The co-hosts announced the news on the Wednesday edition of the program with a lot of excitement.


Guthrie and Kotb appeared on the Wednesday show sipping some tea and dressed in their best royal costume. They announced that their team will not be just watching the event from their studios but will be a part of it.

"We are all heading to England to bring you the excitement of the royal wedding!"

On May 16, three days before the wedding, the NBC news anchors will be hosting a one hour NBC primetime special called Inside the Royal Wedding: Harry and Meghan at 10 pm ET.

During the episode, the pair will be going through the fairytale romance between Markle and Harry and will be interviewing a few close friends of the couple.


The next day, Kotb will be living in Windsor and give their fans a sneak peek of the wedding day. Before the wedding, Guthrie, Kelly, Gifford and Kotb will be broadcasting live from an exclusive location from 7 am to 11 am ET.  


All the special NBC shows lead up to the big day. The hosts will feed the followers live from the Windsor Castle. The wedding nuptials will be broadcasted at 4:30 am ET and the show is set to capture every aspect of the day. 

Prince Harry and Markle got engaged in November 2017 and the wedding is scheduled to be at St George's Chapel at the Queen's Windsor Castle.

The wedding will be followed by a huge afternoon reception and a private party hosted by Prince Charles.
