People gather at St Andrews University, Scotland, to watch a broadcast feed for Prince William and Kate Middleton in London on April 29, 2011 the day after the Royal Wedding.
Some 750 million people tuned in for Charles' and Diana’s wedding.
However during the age of the internet, the audience for William's and Kate’s wedding is expected to be at least three times as large. Wow.
Neither William nor Kate muffed their lines.
But Kate inserted a small but significant rewrite into the vows, promising to 'love, comfort, honor and keep' her new hubby but not 'obey' him.
The double-buss set off a wave of euphoria and celebrations for the newly dubbed duke and duchess of Cambridge across England and even in former colonial outposts like New York City.
