Royal Wedding Watched By Nearly 3 Billion People Around The World posted by on April 29, 2011

This kiss might be viewed by half the world.. Let's make it good

Early estimates show that today’s Royal Wedding for Prince William and Kate Middleton may have been viewed as many as 3 Billion people around the world.  This shows the advancement in mass media technologies as the wedding for Prince Charles and Princess Diana, nearly 30 years ago on July 29th, 1981 was viewed by 750 Million, showing today’s wedding to be viewed by 4 times as many people.

That's a whole lotta beer drinkers right there

There was an estimated 20 million people who viewed the wedding in the United Kingdom, and it is said that about 400 Million people viewed the wedding around the world via the world wide web.  That’s huge and more than the population of the entire United States.

And being that the wedding was viewed by nearly 1 out of every 2 people in this world, their first kiss may have been the most viewed kiss in world history.

Now that’s what I call a real riot.
