Okay, I’ll admit it - I’m kind of excited about the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. I mean, who doesn’t like a good wedding and a royal one to boot? The wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana in 1981 was watched by a global audience of 750 million people, and I can just imagine what the ratings will be for this 2011 wedding with so many more media venues. With online streaming video and the ceremony being broadcasted on numerous television channels, you might have to go out of your way to avoid watching the wedding!

So if you’re a royal wedding watcher or just curious about Wills and Kate, here are a couple resources for you.

The world viewed Friday as Prince William and Catherine Middleton became husband and wife at London's Westminster Abbey. What some call noble wedding overload, others like Stephens of Financial Times call a golden opportunity. The royal wedding was entertaining theater on one level, however more importantly, the real significance of the monarchy shines through in pounds and pence. I found this here:

750 Million watched this wedding - just an amazing audience number for a wedding. If your looking for something a little smaller try http://sarasotaweddingideas.com the wedding ceremony audience wll be a bit smaller than 750 million.
