The Royal Wedding on Discovery Channel

Date and Time: April 25, 26, 27 and 28 at 20.10.

To celebrate the upcoming royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, The Discovery Channel exclusively on OSN has a brilliant bouquet of special documentaries dedicated to this highly anticipated event.

This exclusive season, dubbed ‘Royal Wedding Week’, will be broadcast on Discovery Channel (channel 80) exclusively on OSN from April 25 to April 29, with a series of original programmes on the nuptials and fanfare that surrounds it.

Each day that week will feature a new programme, starting on Monday, April 25 with the intriguing documentary, ‘Royally Obsessed’. For most royal fans, collecting a piece or two of memorabilia to mark a royal event is enough. But for others, their collecting has become an obsession. ‘Royally Obsessed’ introduces viewers to the most fanatical royal collectors in the world through personal tours of their royal relic-crammed homes and seeks to understand their royal obsession.

With William officially off the market, attention now turns to Prince Harry who will undoubtedly take over the reigns as the world's most eligible bachelor. Discovery Channel lifts the lid the following day on the boy Princess Diana called ‘the naughty one’ in the riveting documentary, ‘Wild About Prince Harry’. The programme tracks Prince Harry's journey from young child to war hero, charity campaigner and royal pin-up through rare photos and footage, and interviews with friends and family.

The celebrations shift up a gear on Wednesday, April 27 with the fascinating documentary ‘30 Days That Rocked The Royals’. This in-depth piece marks the most significant 30 days between the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer and their son's. It highlights all the triumphs and tragedies in the Royal Family over the past three decades, from weddings and babies to funerals and scandals. This is a snapshot of Britain's most famous family as you've never seen it before.
Finally, on Friday April 29, Discovery Channel brings all the excitement surrounding the wedding itself to viewers with the documentary, ‘The Biggest Day’ which takes an exclusive behind the scenes look at how key players prepared for the wedding day, the pressure they were under and the challenges they faced.
‘Royal Wedding Week’ is a fantastic celebration of pomp and pageantry, and of true love and fairy tale weddings from April 25 - 29 on Discovery Channel (channel 80) exclusively on OSN.
