Don’t worry, our invite got lost in the post too - but you can still watch the royal wedding this Saturday 19 May without making a trip to Windsor.

Watch Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot at one of these Scottish pubs, where you’ll be able to watch all of the action live, and raise a glass to the happy couple.

The Pear Tree, Edinburgh

Usually used for showing football matches, the big outdoor screen in The Pear Tree’s Edinburgh courtyard will show all of the royal wedding coverage on Saturday, and the weather is expected to be suitably warm and sunny.

Grab a cocktail or beer from the outdoor bar, and arrive before midday to bag a great seat. The pub will also be screening the FA Cup final after the wedding coverage is over, if you want to make it a double bill.
