As Prince William and his bride Kate Middleton get wed today in Westminster Abbey, expect no blow-by-blow account of the solemn wedding ceremony. Reports have it that Scotland Yard has all grounds covered to make it a secure event by blocking cell signals in and around the Abbey before and during the wedding. I guess this is just to be expected in an age where anyone and everyone has the compulsion to reach to his smartphone and pass on texts, videos and photos digitally. This means no live tweets or Facebook statuses either.
Truth is, one can find a livestream of the much-awaited Prince William-Kate wedding somewhere but the networks will probably be congested. I recommend checking out Youtube’s royal wedding channel
which has the official approval of Buckingham Palace. One can see here the official countdown and the procession map. The public can also freely write on the online guestbook and even upload a video.
On Twitter, the official hashtag is #rw2011 although hashtag #royal wedding is also rising in the ranks.
For Apple and Android users, there is the first, officially approved Royal App showcasing royal weddings in the past. It can be downloaded on iTunes and the Android Market for a price.
As Prince William is already taken, eyes of gushing girls now will be on the remaining eligible royal Prince Harry who we believe has gotten more handsomer than William. Reports from shoppingblog.com have it that he will be escorted to the royal wedding by his on-and-off again girlfriend Chelsy Davy.
Now who is Chelsy? Looks like she has a bigger
boobs career than Kate because she’s a lawyer and the daughter of a millionaire from Zimbabwe. (photo credit: Sound Off Column)
