LONDON, England (CNN) -- CNN will mark the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles on Saturday, April 9, with special programming live from Windsor and a range of expert guests and commentators to put the event in context.

Watch CNN for five hours of live coverage starting at 1000 GMT, with correspondents Anderson Cooper, Richard Quest, Becky Anderson, Walter Rodgers, Matthew Chance and Paula Hancocks and royal analyst Robert Jobson.

Jobson first broke the news of the couple's engagements to the London Evening Standard newspaper.

Prince Charles's biographer, Penny Junor, Sally Cartwright, Editor of "Hello" magazine, royal expert Richard Fitzwilliam, and Lady Colin Campbell will also be offering analysis.

"There is huge international interest in the British Royal family, both as a news story and as the wedding of the future Head of the Commonwealth," said Nick Wrenn, managing editor of CNN for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

"We want to capture the color of the day and look back at the issues and controversy that have surrounded this relationship, with in-depth reporting that puts this in an international context."

CNN's coverage is to feature all the public events of the day, including the arrival of members of the royal family and invited guests at Windsor's Guildhall, where the wedding vows are to be taken, and the blessing at Windsor Castle.

CNN will also be taking in the atmosphere among members of the public gathering in the streets of Windsor to witness the day's events.

CNN's live reporting will be led by a team of correspondents, including Fionnuala Sweeney, Matthew Chance and Paula Hancocks, and with Becky Anderson hosting a live program looking back at the day's events at 1700 GMT.

There will also be a special edition of "People in the News," an in-depth look at the relationship between Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, looking back at the scandals that have surrounded the royal family.

CNN will also be running packages throughout the day, including reviews of the events and background reports including the history of the Charles-Camilla relationship, royal memorabilia and the on-going debate as to whether Camilla will ever be crowned Queen.
