Get your bookmark bar ready, Kate & Will have a new wedding website. I need this like I need a hole in the head. Alas, my new guilty pleasure!!!
LONDON (AP) – They’ve got the carriage, the abbey, and a national holiday in their honor. Now Prince William’s marriage with Kate Middleton is getting what every young engaged couple really needs – a wedding website.
Tech-savvy couples the world over set up websites to feature their nuptials. Such sites give guests a handy way to get directions, browse photos, buy gifts, or even choose the music. Although Internet users aren’t likely to get much say in the royal reception’s playlist, fans will find photos, updates, videos and more on http://www.officialroyalwedding2011.org, a site that Prince William’s office, St. James’ Palace, says may be used to livestream the event itself.
On Wednesday much of the site seemed to consist of content from the royals’ existing social media ventures, such as Buckingham Palace’s Flickr account, Clarence House’s Twitter page, the Royal Channel on YouTube and the British monarchy’s Facebook site.
But officials are promising exclusive content about the wedding, including that most coveted detail of all _ details about Middleton’s gown when they are made public.
