Britain gets ready for royal wedding revelry
Street parties, open-air screenings and hipster bars are all offering Britons a chance to join in celebrations of the Windsor Castle wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Saturday.
Here are ways five ways in which Britons are celebrating - or bemoaning - the royal nuptials:
A pre-wedding night out - known as a stag-do for the groom and a hen night for the bride - is a well-observed tradition in Britain, regardless of your nobility.
So while Harry celebrates with his brother and best man Prince William at a five-star hotel near Windsor, and bride-to-be Markle enjoys the comforts of a nearby country estate with her mother, London nightspots are encouraging partying in their honor.
England and Wales have a proud history of staging street parties, which started as "peace teas" following World War I as a treat for children in days of hardship, and have evolved into a tradition on national days of celebration.
Local authorities across the country have received hundreds of party applications, which allow roads to be shut and streets to be decked out with bunting.
