The longtime couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their engagement on November 16, 2010. Prince William asked Kate during their October vacation in Kenya. They plan for a short engagement and want to make all the decisions for their day. The families will be paying for wedding, but taxpayers are footing the security bill.
Prince William and Kate Middleton wedding is already a very special day set for Friday, April 29, 2011 at Westminster Abbey, but to add even more excitement a major British broadcaster, Sky TV, is discussing screening William’s marriage to Kate Middleton in 3D. The satellite television screening would be broadcasted live into enabled 3D TV homes and British cinemas. For people that do not have access to 3D cinemas or TV’s, pubs will be showing the wedding. Other British broadcasters, BBC and ITV are also planning on broadcasting the wedding in HD and regular TV. Another array of U.S. broadcasters and will be offering live coverage of the event. Given the number of availability to view the royal wedding is thought to possibly be an event that could have the largest universal audience in history.
Prince William’s wedding is expected to be highly viewed in 3D, HD, online, or regular TV, but will not be a high income for broadcasters because the event is free and will air live.
