Will Prince William and Kate Outdo
Prince Charles and Diana?
Prince William is no Prince Charles, and Kate Middleton is no Princess Diana. But not in a way you may think.Per Britain's Sun, some 3 billion hopeless romantics will tune in Prince William and Kate's nuptials on Friday—and, in the process, leave Charles and Diana's wedding in the dust.
Even when population differentials are considered, the Sun's incredibly optimistic guesstimate has Prince William and Kate running circles around the groom's parents. An audience of 3 billion would mean a staggering 44 percent of the globe's 6.8 billion tuned in the kids. In 1981, the Charles and Di shindig, said to have been watched by 750 million, captured 17 percent of the world's then-4.5 billion.
