The royal wedding followed by 10 million viewers

Even those who wanted to escape could not have. The marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton was on everyone's lips yesterday - and also on all the television screens. While the ceremony broadcast live from Westminster Abbey in London, was attended by no less than two billion viewers around the world, in France, nearly 10 million people who followed the union's future King of England.

Released at a time on TF1, France 2 and M6, the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton has attended an average of 9.4 million viewers, according to our colleagues of Pure Media. While the various channels covered the event from morning until midday, a peak audience of more than 15 million viewers has even been observed within minutes after 13h, shortly after the young married had left Westminster Abbey to go to Buckingham Palace, where they exchanged their first kiss as a married couple before a cheering crowd.

A hearing at the spectacular height of the event, described as the largest in the British royal family since the marriage of Prince Charles and Diana in 1981.
