You may not have an invitation to Prince William and Kate Middleton's big day – but BBC will be your ticket into the royal wedding.

The network will broadcast internationally live footage of the April 29 nuptials, promising an "authentic British take" on all the events, according to a statement by the broadcaster via the Hollywood Reporter.

In the United States, the coverage will be televised on BBC America, while BBC Entertainment will broadcast footage across Asia, India, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East.

The network also promises exclusive access to various points along the wedding route, and a fleet of experts and commentators. Live coverage will be anchored by Huw Edwards, a senior BBC news anchor.

"The Royal Wedding provides a special opportunity to bring together our local channels around the world for a truly global viewing event," Jana Bennett, President of Worldwide Networks and Global iPlayer, said in a statement.
