Watch the Royal Wedding at this Abu Dhabi bar

See Prince Harry tie the knot at Blu Sky Lounge & Grill

It’s the biggest white wedding of the year – but it will be getting a tinge of blue at one of the capital’s favourite sports bars.

The world will be watching when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot on Saturday – and Blu Sky Lounge & Grill has vowed to make it a day to remember.

The global event will be shown live on the Southern Sun Abu Dhabi venue’s HD screens, with guests expected to start arriving at 12.30pm ahead of a 3pm start for the lavish ceremony.

In true British tradition, free strawberries and cream will be served up with every purchase of a Italian sparkling beverage, with the nuptials being beamed on a big screen.

If that wasn’t enough excitement for one day, the British celebration will continue with a screening of one of the showpiece games in the football calendar.

Another national institution, the FA Cup final, which is being contested by Chelsea and Manchester United, will be broadcast from 8.15pm.

What a royal good way to spend your day.

Sat May 19. Noon onwards. Southern Sun Abu Dhabi, Al Zahiyah (02 818 4888).
