Prince William, Kate Middleton want wedding on YouTube

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It is bound to be, without question, one of the most-watched events of our generation. But because we are the social media generation, you won’t have to be near a television set or a radio to dial in to the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

That’s because the ceremony will be televised on YouTube. How very 2011.

“Prince William and Miss Middleton are regular users of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, and have played an active role in overseeing plans for the online coverage of the ceremony on April 29,” the Daily Telegraph reports.

A spokesman for St James’s Palace added, “We wanted people to be able to interact with the royal wedding as they watch it. Prince William and Catherine Middleton are like any other people their age in respect of social media. They are Facebook users and YouTube users … and their intention has always been that their wedding should be accessible to everyone.”

That’s awesome. It’s always refreshing to see powerful folks embracing technology and putting it to beneficial use. Kudos, William and Kate, for “inviting” everyone to what’s sure to be a glamorous, glorious affair.
