With only four days to go until the Royal Wedding, it feels like the whole country is gearing up for a fabulous weekend! The kind people over at Amazon very kindly sent over their Fire TV Stick, which is perfect for not only getting into the (royal) party mood, but for watching the livestream of the wedding too!
Using the Fire TV Stick really couldn’t be easier – if your TV has an HDMI port, and you’ve got Wifi, you’re good to go. I plugged mine into the back of the TV, plugged it into the outlet and then logged in using my Amazon account details.
What I didn’t realise about the Fire TV stick was how many apps you can download to customise which content you watch! To get prepped for all of this weekend’s festivities, I made sure to download the BBC app so I can stream it live. For a bit of fun, I also downloaded PeopleTV, for their take on festivities as well as DisneyLife for some real princess inspiration!
In addition to the apps to watch the actual wedding, I’ve also downloaded Netflix so we can get into the spirit by watching series like ‘The Crown’ as well as documentaries like ‘Inside the House of Windsor. I also downloaded the seriously handy iPhone app, which lets me use my phone as the remote. It makes typing and selecting which show we want to watch so much easier!
I’ve also added the Spotify app so that I can listen to music if I’m cleaning or reading, and Youtube lets me catch up on videos I never usually have time to watch – it’s great for popping on whilst I’m getting ready.
So, on Saturday morning we’re going to be popping the prosecco, and enjoying some of the yummiest gourmet treats as we toast Harry and Meghan.
You can join in the fun too – there is plenty of time to order your own Fire Stick from Amazon (here). The stick is priced at a seriously affordable £39.99, and it’s absolutely got me in the mood for celebrating this weekend!
