Ireland may have been oppressed by the British for almost a millennium, but I think we can all agree that weddings are just fun.
With that in mind, RTÉ has (controversially) decided to broadcast The Royal Wedding today on television and on its online player.
If you've been living under a rock, or simply have zero interest in the marital arrangements of celebrities, the ceremony will see the long-awaited union of Prince Harry and Suits actress Meghan Markle, with more than 100,000 people showing up at Windsor Castle to bear witness to this event, including celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Idris Elba, Amal Clooney and James Blunt.
Broadcasting of the event kicked off at 11.30am this morning and will run until 1.35pm. Watch The Royal Wedding on RTÉ Player now by clicking HERE.
