Next year's Royal Wedding could result in a tourism boom from around the world for London, if figures released December 7 are anything to go by.
Flight comparison site Skyscanner reported a significant rise in interest in flights to London across the board following the announcement that April 29 is set to be the wedding date.
Searches originating in Holland rocketed an astonishing 708 percent after the wedding date was announced, said Skyscanner, followed closely by the United States, which saw a 650 percent rise in searches.
Aiming to capitalize on the interest from across the Atlantic, the UK's flag-carrier British Airways is offering US consumers "Royal Wedding Weekend" vacation packages from $879 for the period of the wedding.
Surprisingly, Germany saw the third-largest increase in searches, with numbers up 295 percent, followed by Croatia with an increase of 260 and Denmark up 253 percent.
With increased interest from plenty of other destinations, it's unsurprising that VisitBritain predicts that the wedding will deliver a major boost to British tourism.
The wedding of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Daniel Westling in June this year brough half a million people out onto the streets of Stockholm - although the predicted surge in hotel demand never materialized.
Stockholm Visitors Board said after the event that it had "turned out like a normal June weekend."
