What better way to celebrate the royal wedding than with an English breakfast?

Seventy percent of Brits are either "not very interested" or "not at all interested" in Saturday's royal wedding, according to a report from the CBC. But that doesn't mean us folks here in Tampa Bay should be shamed into not tuning in to watch Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get hitched.

The Queens Head in St. Petersburg, for one, is opening its doors as early as 6 a.m. for the highly anticipated nuptials. It's got a good reason, though — food — plus the ceremony and televised events at St. George's Chapel in Windsor begin at 7 a.m. anyway.

The indoor-outdoor Grand Central District gastropub expects to serve up a $15 English breakfast buffet of bangers, scrambled eggs, toast, English beans, roasted tomatoes and mushrooms, among other bites. Two free mimosas are in it for guests who arrive before 9 a.m., so plan accordingly.

On the other side of the bay at Tampa's International Plaza, The Pub has a regal spread of brunch fare available between 6 and 11 a.m. The British-inspired hangout's liquid offerings include $3.25 Old Speckled Hen, the $6 Royal Highness Mimosa and the $8 Royal Cake Martini, as well as bottomless mimosas and a Bloody Mary bar.

Raffles and giveaways are also in store for Pub patrons — once they get their fill of wedding festivities, of course.
