Royal wedding: Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle, Sophie Wessex - most-watched video revealed!

> Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle and Princess Diana’s wedding days were watched by millions – but who is now in poll position?

The momentous occasions of royal weddings are watched the world over by millions of people. The big days of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Prince William and Kate Middleton and Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer were all televised and drew in enormous watch figures.

While Princess Diana’s may have been the most-watched on the day, thanks to the royal family’s official YouTube channel, we can now reveal that Harry and Meghan’s wedding day has become the most-watched.

When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said “I do” in Windsor on 19 May 2018 a combined audience of 11.5million people tuned into to watch the magical moment.

Surprisingly, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding failed to pull in as many viewers as his uncle Prince Edward, whose wedding in June 1999 to the Countess of Wessex, enjoyed a combined of 14.8million. However, Harry and Meghan’s two-and-a-half-hour wedding video on YouTube has since had over 35million views!

When Prince William and Kate Middleton got married in 2011 it was a typically royal occasion, with a whopping 1,900 guests. Approximately 17.6million people tuned in for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s beautiful wedding. Their royal wedding video was posted to the royal family YouTube channel nine years ago and in that time, it has racked up a total of 14.5million views.

The biggest ever UK TV audience for a royal wedding was recorded in July 1981, when an estimated 28million watched Prince Charles marry Lady Diana Spencer. Although an official version of the big day is not on YouTube, modern audiences are certainly interested in this momentous occasion.
