The British Royal Wedding: 10 Days to Go

Royal Wedding Red Carpet
Originally uploaded by Pesky Library
It’s now 10 days and counting to the biggest media event of the year – the wedding of Prince William and Catherine (Kate) Middleton. They will say “I do” in Westminster Abbey, London, on Friday April 29th.

The British royalty may have a long history, but this couple isn’t your traditional, stuffy pair of talking heads with stiff upper lips and “what-ho, old chap” remarks. Just check out all the 2.0 ways with which they are reaching out!

They’ve established an official website, and provide materials for YouTube. The Royal Channel on YouTube also has a clock counting down to The Broadcast event. Of course, BBC keeps tabs on everything wedding-related. Also Westminster Abbey, the location for the wedding ceremony, provides information on their website. Even the British government has a web page for the wedding.

Here in the library, we’re following the story and counting down as well.
