Royals announce wedding day streaming plans

Royals_flickr The Royal Family has unveiled its online plans for Wedding Day. As expected, they include all the popular video and photo sharing sites, along with social media. Here are some of the highlights:

Video streaming

The Royal Family's YouTube channel will stream the events on April 29 between 5 and 9 a.m (Toronto time). The feed will come from the BBC, but without the commentary.

This will include the Couple’s journey to and from Westminster Abbey, the Wedding Service, balcony appearance and the fly past.

...

Staff at Clarence House and St. James’s Palace will provide a live commentary with historical information, interesting links, additional photographs and video footage as well as an integrated Twitter feed.  This will be the first time a live blog has run alongside a live stream on YouTube for any occasion.

Photos

The Royal Family will also be posting images to their Flickr page througout the day, promising "hidden corners of Westminster Abbey and unusual views from inside and outside Buckingham Palace."

Tweets

The Royal Family will also use the Clarence House Twitter account to provide live updates throughout the wedding day. 

Facebook

Finally, the Royal Family says it will update its Facebook page hourly throughout the big day.

Could we please have more coverage? This doesn't feel quite enough like a colonial backwater just yet.
