(Comedic duo Will Ferrell & Molly Shannon aka Cord & Tish!)

The cake is baked, the dress is pressed and she’s said yes! This weekend, His Royal Highness Prince Harry of Wales and American humanitarian activist and actress Meghan Markle will tie the knot - and M-Net is bringing you a piece of the regal affair with the HBO special, The Royal Wedding Live With Cord and Tish! tomorrow (Saturday) May 19 at 21h00.

With coverage like no other, this special features comedic duo Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon as their famously funny broadcast characters Cord Hosenbeck and Tish Cattigan – legends of the industry who have most recently “hosted” this year’s Rose Parade in the US. The veteran TV pair will team up with their old friend Tim Meadows and special guests to cover the wedding procession and festivities with their trademark dignity and grace.

“This wedding is going to be a blast,” said Cord Hosenbeck. There will be more luxury packed into that church than all the Bed, Bath & Beyonds combined.”

“Every little girl dreams of growing up and marrying a prince! Now I get to be front-row centre of this fairytale romance. I'll be crying all day!” added Tish Cattigan.

Hosenbeck is a frequent television and radio host dedicated to physical and mental wellness. He has authored more than 30 books on subjects ranging from diet to dressing for success. Cattigan, a former Miss Arizona, has written books about relationships, co-dependency, marriage and wellness. (Molly Shannon was also seen on M-Net 101’s Divorce season 2).

The Royal Wedding Live With Cord And Tish! is executively produced and written by Will Ferrell and Andrew Steele, alongside producer Molly Shannon. Funny Or Die’s Mike Farah and show runner Bellamie Blackstone are also executive producers.

NB: This means that the 21h00 Saturday movie, The Belko Experiment, will fall away.
