You could be trekking all the way across the globe (and dropping some serious cash) to witness the spectacle that is the royal wedding, but the good news is you don't have to travel to jolly old England to get in on the action. Thanks to technology and a few livestream options, you can watch the entire thing unfold right from your couch and for a lot less money. Check out these apps, sites, and tools that will let you in on a little royal wedding fun at home.
- Tour Westminster Abbey — A new iOS and Android app ($4.50) lets you tour a virtual replica of Westminster Abbey, where William and Kate will be saying their vows. Also included in the app are points of interest, so you can stop and take a look from all angles. Who needs an invite?
- Get updates on Twitter — There may be a rule against cell phone use during the ceremony, but you'll still be able to get up to the minute updates about the royal wedding on the official Clarence House Twitter page.
- Watch it live — You have three solid options for watching the royal wedding live online, so even if you don't have cable, you'll be covered.
- See the royal procession route in 3D — No need to battle the crowds after the ceremony, just check out the sights on Google Earth instead! Taking you on a virtual 3D tour of the postwedding parade, you'll see sights like Big Ben, Parliament, and Buckingham Palace, where the reception will be taking place.
