MIAMI, April 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

- Thousands of Cruise Line Passengers Globally will be able to Watch the Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on 29th April

OceansTV, a leading provider of in-cabin TV entertainment to cruise line companies, has signed a non-exclusive distribution agreement with BBC World News for the licensing of the channel's Royal Wedding coverage.

The agreement will allow thousands of passengers on numerous cruise ships around the world to watch the wedding of HRH Prince William of Wales and Catherine Middleton live from London on Friday, 29th April 2011. Coverage will run from 9am to 3pm local time.

The BBC will be broadcasting live throughout the day, including from within Westminster Abbey during the ceremony.

In addition to the wedding day's extensive coverage, passengers will also be able to enjoy a line-up of special TV programming in the weeks building up to the big event. There will be weekly editions of Witness in April, which offers a uniquely personal perspective on major royal stories from history, including the marriage of Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier and the enduring union of Edward and Wallace Simpson. Special editions of One Square Mile will also be shown, in which people from towns and cities across the United Kingdom will give their thoughts and views about the forthcoming event.

In addition, a regular weekly programme, UK Report: Royal Wedding Special, will run on BBC World News in the build up to the wedding. Presenter Mishal Husain will host the show, which gives viewers a unique insight into all aspects leading up to the big day.

Royal Caribbean International, Princess Cruise Lines, P&O UK and Holland America are amongst the fleets that will be showing the Royal Wedding coverage to their passengers.

"Princess Cruises Ships’ Royal Wedding Broadcast: Those in the market for something more flavorful than scones can watch the wedding on board a Princess Cruises ship. (If you want to depart from Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, the Crown Princess sails to ports in Europe, the Caribbean, Canada and New England.) The wedding will be shown on the ship’s huge LED screens, while viewing parties will enliven the decks with “royal-themed” cocktails, William and Kate look-alike contests and wedding trivia competitions. (Speaking of trivia: Princess Diana christened the original Royal Princess ship in 1984.) Information: Princess.com."

I am absolutely thrilled with the planned Royal wedding celebrations on the Princess ships.  I am a long time Royal watcher & will be on a Princess ship on April 29th to join in the celebration.  Very exciting...

Good to see you American folk are still interested in our Royal Family.  The Boston Tea party is forgotten?

Don't forget HM Queen Elizabeth is also Queen of Australia (and Canada.) Smiley

"(Reuters) - The wedding of Britain's Prince William to university sweetheart Kate Middleton will be streamed live on the internet via an official royal channel -- the first time a British royal wedding will be covered in this way.

April 29's event, expected to be watched by up to two billion people across the globe, will be available on www.youtube.com/theroyalchannel and accompanied by a live multi-media blog assembled by royal officials.

St James's Palace, whose officials represent Princes William and Harry, said the feed would be taken from British public broadcaster, the BBC, without a broadcaster's commentary.

"Staff at Clarence House and St James's Palace will provide a live commentary with historical information, interesting links, additional photographs and video footage as well as an integrated Twitter feed," the palace said in a statement.

Officials said it was the first time a live blog would run alongside a live stream on video-sharing website YouTube for any occasion.

In addition, an official video "Wedding Book" on YouTube invites anyone to submit their own video of congratulations to the couple.

The royal family, previously seen as out of touch with modern Britain, is making extensive use of the internet and a variety of social media applications in the run-up to the big day.

Photographs related to the wedding will be released via photo-sharing site Flikr, and announcements on the day itself will be published on the official wedding site www.officialroyalwedding2011.org.

A @ClarenceHouse account on short messaging service Twitter will provide live updates on the day, and will be integrated into the live blog.

Alongside the video message option, anyone wanting to send the couple a message of congratulations on Twitter can do so using the hashtag #rw2011, officials said.

The royal family even have a page on social networking site Facebook (www.facebook.com/TheBritishMonarchy).

"Facebook users can click the 'I'm attending' button on 'The Royal Wedding' event to show their interest in the event," St James's Palace said."
