Sunday, April 24 Untold Stories of a Royal Bridesmaid (TLC)
It's royal-wedding week, so what better time for a juicy tell-all? Sadly, this special, starring Princess Diana's bridesmaid India Hicks, is anything but. She revisits Diana's gown designer and a royal correspondent, but snoozy talking points — Diana's train was really long! — don't cure our royal-wedding fever. C- —Archana Ram

Wednesday, April 27 How to Be a Prince (BBC America)
11 AM-1 PM
Originally produced in 2003 to coincide with Prince William's 21st birthday, this two-part documentary mixes Brit throne history with the rise of the soon-to-be-married heir. It's obvious and repetitive, in that E! True Hollywood Story mold, and yet I could not bring myself to look away. B- —Tanner Stransky

Friday, April 29 The Wedding of William and Kate
Get set for the wedding of the century — even bigger than Monica and Chandler's! — as Prince William marries Kate Middleton at London's Westminster Abbey. Will a billion people watch? (Some 750 million tuned in to see Prince Charles and Lady Di tie the knot 30 years ago.) What kind of tiara will Kate wear? (Please let it spell out PRINCESS in diamonds.) Will someone be a royal pain and streak through the ceremony? (Place the Jackass boys under house arrest!) All will be revealed as the major networks rev up live coverage in the predawn hours; the ceremony itself is slated for an American-unfriendly slot of 6 a.m. Eastern time. If you oversleep like a boorish Yank, fear not: Katie Couric hosts CBS' The Royal Wedding: Modern Majesty at 8 p.m., while NBC's Dateline and ABC's 20/20 offer their nuptials specials from 9 to 11 p.m. And don't forget to watch E!'s Fashion Police Royal Wedding at 10 p.m. Buckingham Palace, meet Judge Joan. —Dan Snierson

Friday, April 29 Kathy Griffin's Insightful and Hilarious Take on the Royal Wedding (TV Guide)
Even if you're the most ardent Kate and Wills fan, you'll probably be royally ready for some levity 12 hours after the wedding of the millennium. Enter the always fabulous Kathy Griffin and her guest panel of Jackie Collins, twin comedians Randy and Jason Sklar, and Anderson Cooper 360 producer Jack Gray, who will give their less-than-reverent analysis of the day's pomp and circumstance. ''I'm definitely going to — as the Aussies say — take the piss out of this wedding,'' says Griffin. ''It's not our wedding. We didn't get them a gift. Our royalty is Snooki and maybe Leo DiCaprio, so I don't need to hold back.'' We wouldn't want it any other way.
