NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — You don’t need us to tell you that plenty of New Yorkers are excited about the royal wedding, set to begin at 11 a.m. in London – that’s 6 a.m. here in the Big Apple.
And with the ceremony expected to draw 2 billion viewers across the world, many local establishments are looking to capitalize on the event with viewing parties and celebrations in honor of Prince William and his bride-to-be, Kate Middleton.
Trinity Church, founded by Royal Charter of England in 1967, will host a large-screen viewing of what many are calling “the wedding of the decade.”
If you can’t make it to Westminster Abbey Friday morning, the church’s celebration may be the next best thing.
The Wall Street landmark will open its doors at 5 a.m., with beefeaters at the church to welcome guests.
“Trinity welcomes one and all from its Lower Manhattan neighborhood and beyond as it celebrates the royal wedding and the parish’s centuries-old ties to England,” the church said.
