ITV are first out of the block to announce their coverage of the Royal Wedding.

Philip Schofield and Julie Etchingham are back together from Windsor from 0925-1500 with a highlights package on ITV3 in the evening.

BBC News will have Simon McCoy and Jane Hill presenting coverage.

Considering I only mentioned the NC contingent, I thought that would be assumed? Oh well.

If I recall, for William and Kate, the NC and World largely simulcast with BBC One anyway.

For the smaller channels, I won't be surprised if Alistair Bruce is on hand for Sky and Kate Williams for CNNi. I wonder if they'll let Max Foster or Hannah Vaughan Jones anchor or someone flown in from Atlanta?

A very strong presenting line up from ITV. Julie and Philip are a good presenting combination.

I’m surprised Good Morning Britain won’t be on air with a special program, even if it is a Saturday. I’m sure Piers and Susanna have mentioned that they’ll have special coverage from Windsor, but I think it would have been mentioned in the press release if they were on air.

ITV are certainly putting out a good team and with Philip Schofield at the helm it'll feel much less like a news programme. Great to see the likes of Charlotte Hawkins and Charlene White included too and it'll be nice seeing them outside of the studio for once.

Well the press release doesn't mention anything before 0925 so it's possible that ITV Daytime or ITV Breakfast (I'm not sure who is responsible for the slot on a weekend) will make their own announcement regarding any coverage. I expect GMB will want to do something though and Piers and Susanna are most likely to be their team. Makes sense if GMB are broadcasting to have Charlotte Hawkins out too to provide some continuity in the presenters across the day. Haven't GMB done a regal sounding remix of the theme before too?
