U.S. pubcaster PBS is prepping a series of nightly programs leading up to the live broadcast of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.

Royal Wedding Watch, a five-part series produced by BBC Studios’ Topical and Live Unit, will come nightly to PBS from London. The special will be hosted by American news anchor Meredith Vieira and British television host Matt Baker, who will update audiences with the preparations for the highly anticipated royal wedding.

During the week before the wedding, the hosts will be joined in-studio by experts, commentators and special guests. BBC presenter and host Anita Rani will report live from Windsor each night, while English historian Lucy Worsley, joint chief curator at Historic Royal Palaces, will look into the pomp and protocol surrounding Prince Harry and Markle’s nuptials.

Royal Wedding Watch premieres Monday-Thursday, May 14-17, 10:00 p.m. ET/PT and May 18 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings). The live broadcast of the royal wedding will air on PBS on May 19.
