The coming Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has the world abuzz. And Baltimore restaurants are getting in on the craze.
Despite the early morning hours that the wedding will air in the U.S. (7 a.m. on Saturday), these restaurants are opening their doors early so that customers can watch all the festivities while consuming some tasty bites.

Following the success of a party for the last royal wedding, owner and chef Nancy Longo has decided to throw another.
Doors will open at 6 a.m. The event, which requires an RSVP, will be $25 per person.
Guests will be served an English breakfast with bangers and mash, scones, wedding cake, bloody Marys and mimosas.
The 50-seat restaurant will be decorated with a cutout of Queen Elizabeth, banners, and flags that are half American and half British.
“It will be a fancy tiara and pajama party,” Longo said with a laugh.

Owner Neill Howell, the British-native chef formerly of Bond Street Social, will whip up classic British fare in the café, which is located in the shopping center at the base of Lake Avenue and Falls Road.
The menu will include “The Megan,” a high tea with tea sandwiches, scone, clotted cream, petit fours, tea for $15 per person; “The Harry,” bacon and white pudding butty served on a buttered crumpet for $11; "Royal Wedding Tea," which will be iced white tea with rosebuds, garnished with honey and mint; and a specialty wedding doughnut made with elderflower and lemon, the bride and groom’s cake flavors.
The eatery will be decorated with cutouts of the royal couple, which guests can pose alongside for photos.
Doors will open at 7 a.m. and the wedding will be live-streamed on a television in the cafe, which will close at 3 p.m.
