Jane Pauley anchors “A Sunday Morning in London,” a special edition of CBS SUNDAY MORNING to be broadcast Sunday, May 13 (9:00 AM ET) on the CBS Television Network. Anchored from London, the broadcast will explore the history, the people, the places and the culture of the region that will be the focus of the upcoming wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The broadcast will feature interviews with model, actor, singer and 60s icon Twiggy, as well as Academy Award-winning actor Rachel Weisz.

Mark Phillips will look at how America’s view of Great Britain needs to be updated and reports that Britain in the 21st century looks a lot more like America – a multicultural melting pot.

Jane Pauley visits an exhibit of dresses worn by Princess Diana now on display at Kensington Palace. She also takes viewers behind the scenes in the archives at Hampton Court Palace and visits Westminster Abbey.

Mo Rocca traces the history of the British royal family and discovers they aren’t so British after all. Lee Cowan meets a royal superfan, who has one of the world’s most extensive collections of memorabilia. Roxana Saberi reports on the decline of a British institution – the neighborhood pub. Conor Knighton travels to the remote and exotic St. Helena off the coast of Africa, where residents of the British-controlled island will be watching the royal wedding.

Charles D’Agata will take a spin in an Aston Martin, the car favored by James Bond, and Tracy Smith will look into why British TV shows are so loved by Americans.

CBS News will have full coverage of the royal wedding on May 19, starting at 4:00 AM, ET, anchored by Gayle King and ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT’s Kevin Frazier.
