The wedding of the year (decade? century?) is imminent, and let's break down here what happens when, and where you can watch it on Australian TV.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be getting married this Saturday, and lucky for us, it's on Saturday night, so it's kinda perfect for our viewing parties at home. Thanks Megs and Hazza.

So, here are all the details you need, starting with viewing times and channels.

Nearly all of the main free-to-air channels will be broadcasting the wedding from either 7pm or 7.30pm on Saturday, with the exception of Channel 10 - which is instead showing back-to-back episodes of UK reality show 'Ambulance' from 7.30pm to 10pm.

Now, when is what happening?

From 6pm AEST (9am local time) on Saturday:

The first guests start to arrive at St George's Chapel, in Windsor Castle.
These will be the 1200 members of the public that have been invited to watch the celebrations outside the church. All these people have overcome adversity or contributed to the community in some way.

From 6.30pm - 8pm AEST (9.30am - 11am local time):
The main wedding guests will begin arriving.
Amal and George Clooney? Who else? We won't know until the day.
All three siblings of Diana, Princess of Wales, will be there, with sister Lady Jane Fellowes chosen to give the reading.
Meghan's mother Doria Ragland is said to be walking her from the car to the church, and who knows who will walk her down the aisle now that Meghan's dad Thomas (Tom) Markle is out.

8.20pm AEST (11.20am local time):

The rest of the extended Royal family will begin to arrive, according to CNN.
Some will walk to the chapel, some will be come by car.

8.45pm AEST (11.45am local time):

Prince Harry and his best man, Prince William, to arrive on the chapel's west steps.
The Telegraph (UK) is reporting that the pair will arrive on foot, and Prince Harry will walk past the crowds in the grounds before the ceremony.

8.55pm AEST (11.55am local time):

Queen Elizabeth will arrive, according to the Telegraph.
She will be the last member of the Royal family to take her seat for the wedding ceremony.

8.59pm AEST (11.59am local time):

Meghan is due to arrive on the west steps of the chapel.

9pm AEST (midday local time)

The ceremony starts and will last one hour.
Who is conducting the service?
The Reverend Michael Curry from Chicago, Illinois will give the address at the wedding.
The Dean of Windsor David Conner will conduct the service, and the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will officiate as the couple exchange marriage vows.

10pm AEST (1pm local time):

The couple will leave the chapel once the ceremony is over - then speak to 200 representatives from charities Prince Harry is associated with. Now that's commitment!
Then they will board an Ascot Landau carriage pulled by Windsor Grey horses for their procession through the town, which takes 25 minutes.
They'll be returning to Windsor Castle via the Long Walk.

From 11pm AEST (2pm local time)

The first of two receptions of the day.
The first reception will be held in St George's Hall inside the castle.
All of the 600 guests invited to the wedding will be seated at this event.

From 4am, Sunday AEST (7pm local time)

This is the second reception of the day to be held at Frogmore House.
Only 200 guests have an invitation to this more event, a more intimate gathering.
There has been no announcement about when the couple may share their first married kiss in public, and there is no balcony schedule for this.
We predict it'll be in there somewhere! The eager GLOBAL public want to see it!
Oh yeah, and the DRESS!
MEGHAN stunning dress is said to have been revealed this week. Well, some details about it.
The $180,000 (YES!) wedding dress has been revealed, it has been reported.
The 'Daily Mail' reports the Royal bride will walk down the aisle in a hand-stitched gown by London-based Australian fashion designers Ralph & Russo.
Meghan will reportedly wear the gown during the service and at a reception in St George’s Hall, Windsor Castle, afterwards.
