Live Stream Of Royal Wedding Breaks Internet Records

The marriage of Prince William to Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, was streamed live on the British royal family's YouTube channel, the first royal wedding to be covered in such a way.

Livestream, said the event broke its own records, with more than 330,000 viewers at one point.

On Twitter, nine of the top 10 trending topics were related to the royal wedding.

The BBC website, was struggling under the strain Friday morning, intermittently flashing an error message during the ceremony saying the site was experiencing "abnormal traffic".

The two hottest searches on Google were "Royal wedding coverage" and "Kate Middleton wedding dress", (where's pippa ? :) )which devoted the celebrated logo on its home page to the royal wedding and they mapped the royal procession route in 3D.

Palace officials hosted a live multimedia blog on the royal site, where visitors could congratulate the couple in an online wedding book and make donations to the Royal Wedding Charity Fund.

Fears that the global media event, expected to draw two billion viewers worldwide and many of them online could "break" the Internet proved unfounded.
