According to the Guinness Book of World Records, “The Royal Channel – the official YouTube Channel for the British Monarchy run by Clarence House – ensured that 72 million people worldwide watched the royal wedding live online, more online views than Barak Obama’s inauguration.”
In simplest terms, that is INSANE. And if I understand correctly, that doesn’t even include the percentage of people who watched it on television (graph below).
I understand that wedding’s are a very sentimental and quite the heart melting event, but that’s exactly the point. Shouldn’t weddings, therefore, remain as a private moment, surrounded by loving family and not hundreds of camera’s? Yes, the Prince has a major influence upon all of the public, but I have never met either parties nor have any type of connection or bond to them. Hence why would I care if two complete strangers got married? Again, I realize that he is Princess Diana’s son, and she alone was an inspiration that could change the world, but that is her title, not his.
Therefore, what were your reasons for watching?
