How Many People Attended Kate and William's Wedding?

An Obscene Amount of People Cared About the Royal Wedding

Kate Middleton and Prince William will celebrate their sixth wedding anniversary on April 29, and to ring in the special occasion, we're looking back at just how big their nuptials were. The royal wedding was complete with a handful of amazing moments, celebrity guests, and frame-worthy photos (remember their sweet kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace?). It was one of those days where you probably remember exactly what you were doing when you watched Kate walk down the aisle (if you were in America, you might have still been sleeping). The wedding seemed to be the only thing the world could talk about, and the staggering amount of people that tuned in or showed up back up that fact. We've broken down the royal wedding numbers into three simple categories to show the scope of Kate and Will's big day. Check them out below, and then get excited for Pippa Middleton's wedding with these fun facts.

  1. Number of People That Actually Attended the Wedding: About 1,900 people were invited to the service at Westminster Abbey, 650 people were invited to the luncheon reception at Buckingham Palace hosted by the queen, and 300 people were invited to the late-night reception hosted by Prince Charles.
  2. Number of People That Turned Up to be a Part of the Celebration: The Metropolitan Police estimated one million people flooded the streets of London to try to catch a glimpse of the wedding parade.
  3. Number of People That Watched on a TV or Computer: According to several outlets, two billion people watched the royal wedding live. Nearly 23 million people in the US alone watched the nuptials on networks like CNN, NBC, ABC, Telemundo, and CBS.
