Join Fox News Channel bright and early on Saturday morning for LIVE coverage of the royal wedding of Britain's Prince Harry to Meghan Markle. 

Starting at 5:00am ET, Sandra Smith, Shepard Smith, Ainsley Earhardt and a host of Fox News correspondents will bring you four hours of coverage from outside St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Preparations for the historic event have been somewhat overshadowed this week by the family drama unfolding around the 36-year-old American actress.

After days of speculation, Markle confirmed that her father, Thomas, would not be able to attend her wedding due to health problems.

Greg Palkot reported that the extravagant affair will cost around $50 million - mostly for security - and is expected to generate $100 million in business for the area.
