Plans to broadcast Prince William and Kate Middleton’s marriage service live on the web are being considered by St James’s Palace.
If feasible the screening of the royal nuptials will be featured on a website dedicated to the royal wedding which has just launched.
Fans wanting the latest news about William and Kate’s big day can log onto the new webpages at officialroyalwedding2011.org to learn about the preparations.
On the wedding day itself the site will be the first place to read about details of the bride’s dress and other information.
The home-page features the informal Mario Testino portrait photograph of the couple released to mark their engagement.
It also brings together a number of the monarchy’s social media accounts from the Clarence House Twitter feed, the royal Flickr and Facebook accounts, and the Royal Channel on YouTube.
Content on the site includes information already released about the event such as the venue for the reception – Buckingham Palace – and details about William and Kate’s visit last week to St Andrews university where they studied.
A St James’s Palace spokeswoman said: “There’s been lots of interest in the wedding from the public and the website will be a resource for them to go to.”
She added that the site will be regularly updated with exclusive content, including pictures, features and videos.
The website is hosted by Google App Engine, which is designed to handle large, global peaks in web traffic.
