The Royal Wedding: The Numbers

There are lots of numbers flying around when it comes to the royal wedding.  Some of my favorites:

8 – number of years that Kate and Wills have been dating prompting the notoriously nasty British press to nickname her Waity-Katie.

18 – number of carats in Kate’s gorgeous sapphire engagement ring that Williams’ mother Diana also wore.

45 – number of minutes allocated for Prince William and Best Man Prince Harry to make their way from Clarence House to Westminster Abbey.

5 – number of minutes the trip from Clarence House to Westminster Abbey should actually take.

9 – number of minutes allocated for Kate and her father to travel from the Goring Hotel to Westminster Abbey.

1,100,000 – number of people expected to crowd the streets of London in person on Friday to catch a glimpse of the happy couple.

1800 – number of people invited to witness the ceremony in Westminster Abbey.  Still no word on how the RSVPs came in – I can’t imagine there were too many no replies.

600 – number of people who will join the royal couple at a reception at Buckingham Palace hosted by Prince Charles.

10,000 – number of canapes being prepared for the Buckingham Palace reception.

300 – number of people who will join Kate and William for an after party with a DJ and dancing.

750,000,000 – number of people who watched Charles and Diana’s wedding in 1981.

3,000,000,000 – number of people expected to watch the wedding on TV and online.

Any numbers around the Royal Wedding that I missed?
