You can bring a picnic and watch the Royal wedding on the big screen at Sandringham.

The massive TV will be put up on the lawn outside the Visitor Centre, showing live coverage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day on Saturday, May 19.

While hundreds of thousands are expected to flock to Windsor, hoping to catchn a glimpse the couple, the big screen in Norfolk is also expected to be popular.

The centre was packed when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding was shown on a screen inside the building in 2011. This time, a larger screen will be placed outside.

Helen Walch, the Queen’s public access manager, said: “We’re hoping for fine weather so that plenty of people can come and enjoy the day.”

Families are being encouraged to bring along a picnic. There is no charge for the screening, while the visitor centre, woodland trails, adventure playground and Sandringham House, museum and gardens will also be open.

Broadcasters will be allocated prime vantage points inside St George’s Great Chapel, where the couple will exchange vows and along the route of the procession the newlyweds will make through Windsor in a horse drawn carriage afterwards.

Live screening of Royal weddings began in 1973, when Princess Anne married Lieut Mark Phillips at Westminster Abbey.
