Wednesday 27 April 2011
In addition to being able to watch the marriage between Prince William and Kate Middleton on television, viewers will have their choice of a number of official internet resources for following all the events at Westminster Abbey on April 29.
The official Facebook page of the British monarchy contains links to news and information about the upcoming wedding.
Via the Facebook site fans can also access the official YouTube channel of the British monarchy, which will be streaming the wedding live on April 29 from 10am London time (GMT+1). The video of the wedding will remain on the site after the event. Fans and well-wishers can also leave video messages via the YouTube channel.
On April 29 real-time news about the royal wedding will be broadcast via the Clarence House (official residence of Prince Charles) Twitter account (@ClarenceHouse) and following the wedding, pictures of the big day will be made available via a devoted Flickr gallery.
Background information on the event can also be found via the official website of the royal wedding.
Although there is no official iPhone application for the royal wedding a huge number of unofficial ones are available via iTunes.
On July 29, 1981, the marriage between Prince Charles and Diana attracted 750 million viewers, according to the BBC. Whether the availability of social networks such as Facebook and sites such as YouTube increases the global audience of the marriage between Prince William and Kate Middleton remains to be seen.
