The royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is finally happening tomorrow.

American fascination with the royal family isn’t new. But this wedding, you can argue, is particularly relevant to those of us living in Los Angeles. After all, Markle grew up in the City of Angels and spent her childhood in Hollywood. Her father was a cinematographer on the TV sitcom, “Married… with Children.”

L.A. Times columnist and royal expert Patt Morrison joins Larry to talk about the royal wedding -- and the L.A. connection.

With AP files.
