Sky News have announced their coverage for Charles and Camilla's Wedding, Martin Stanford and Kay Burley will be anchoring live from Windsor, with Geoff Meade and Catherine Witty. Slightly vague as to whether Live at Five will be live from Windsor, but seems not.



Full details from Sky Publicity Website:



Sky News will deploy some of its biggest-name presenters to cover the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles, in Windsor on Friday 8 April.



The coverage will be co-anchored from Windsor. The civil ceremony at Windsor Guildhall is not being televised, although the blessing at Windsor Castle will be broadcast.



Kay Burley and Martin Stanford will be live on location covering the couple entering the Guildhall for the service at 1400. At 1530 Sky News will broadcast the St George?s Chapel blessing, live.



Royal pundit Alastair Bruce and the Queen?s former press secretary Dickie Arbiter will be in Windsor throughout the day.



Sky News? Royal Correspondents Geoff Meade and Katherine Witty will be reporting live.



Looking back at the Royal Wedding will be Jeremy Thompson, anchoring Live at Five, with co-presenter Anna Botting, covering Britain?s reaction to the day?s events and the Royal couple?s departure, at 1800, for their honeymoon in Scotland.



John Ryley, Sky News? Executive Editor, said: ?The Prince had decided to bar TV cameras and all other media from the civil ceremony, which means Sky News will be looking at innovative ways to cover the event. It will be the first Royal wedding in modern times not to be televised so we?ll ensure our coverage is rich and picture-led;  bringing the latest breakings news and eye-witness accounts to our viewers.?



The channel?s output will be produced by Chris Birkett.

Right...I am Princess Diana's fan.



She was a lovely woman, and she was a true lady. She was not a slapper (as my father says) I have battled with my family about this for many years. She even had her birthday the same day as me.



However, being dead against this wedding will not change what happened with Diana, nor will it keep her memory alive. It will just add fuel to the fire for my father and his band of supporters' anti Diana arguements.



I will be watching and wish Camilla and Charles all the best.



Wills and Harry loved their mum - but are probably sick of folk slagging off their dad. They love him as well.



LIVE AND LET LIVE. :angry:

All the best to Charles and Camilla, but I won't be taking much interest - I'll be busy living my selfish little life and looking forward to going to see Jack Dee in the evening



But will it actually go ahead? There's some speculation that the Pope's funeral will take place on April 8th.



As for Diana, well a lot of that sorry mess would have been avoided if Charles had been allowed to marry Camilla in the first place.

I cant understand civilized people wanting a marriage to fail and have others happiness destroyed.



Especially when they do not know them or their former wives/husbands and former wives/husbands misters and mistresses.

It always what happens, some people can't bear seeing others persons happy, especially when they're famous.....

It's a beautiful world, filled with cruel folk, that is makes life that uncertain.....

and that thrilling.



Oh, by the way, HAPPY WEDDING !

I wish folk would realize the Diana is dead and gone if not forgotten. Charles looks happier that I have ever seen him and clearly very much in love, (no doubt he knows what that means now). He may be heir to the throne but ultimately is just a man, entitled to what ever happiness he can find. I will certainly be watching Sky's coverage and wish them both well. I can't see why people still think they have the right to tell him what he can and can't do, would any of us give a stranger that power over our lives? Give them a break.

Im not going to plan my day around this - really I dont care!

I do not like Charles, dislike Camilla even more!



I hope Charles never ascends the thrown and passes it on to William. Charles will just do irrepairable damage to the monarchy.

Does Charles have to go to Prince Rainier's funeral too? Bummer for the caterers. Spare them a thought

*slaps Sky* They were out done by the BBC. The picture quality was the main let down and too much of Kay interviewing people in the Street.

Burley was a disgrace!



She was interviewing people in the street and seemed to ask almost everyone about Charles ex-wife. Who's wedding was it!!



Later after our future King and Queen had left for their honeymoon she interviewed people outside Windsor castle and asked all of them whether they thought the car had gone past too quickly. Most answered yes when faced with this question despite no one mentioning it before she prompted them with it. She finished her report by stressing the dissapointment people were feeling at only seeing a glimpse of Charles and Camilla!!



Very bad journalism. I wonder if she is like those pathetic few we saw on these forums recently who want to deprive Charles and Camilla of their happiness and destiny because Camilla isn't Diana?

Although I didn't see a great deal of the coverage, I saw Kay Burley interview at least 10 people. I thought she didn't a brilliant job of extracting comments from the 'commoners'. I never saw even the slightest glimpse of negativity towards the the newly-weds. I fear dotdotuk is indeed guilty of the very accusation he is throwing Kay Burleys way!

I didn't hear Kay ask anyone about Princesss Diana but if she did I wouldn't say it was bad journalism. I think Sky's coverage was great



There are some people who are against the wedding because of the Diana situation and Kay and Sky's job is to report the news from different angles.



Including the angle ofthose pathetic few we saw on these forums recently who want to deprive Charles and Camilla of their happiness and destiny because Camilla isn't Diana?I didn't think that the coverage was negative. It wasn't as if it was a normal royal wedding so I think the coverage suited that.
