Royal wedding bells are ringing – in New Orleans! So pull out your fanciest of fancy, because you’re invited –figuratively.

Of course, you can watch all the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wedding festivities at home, with broadcast networks offering live coverage of the wedding. We also found some venues around the greater New Orleans area that will show the grand event.
