NEWS: Royal wedding video book launched

21 Apr 2011



Royal fans can now use hi-tech methods to send their personal congratulations to Prince William and fiance Kate Middleton.

St James Palace has launched a royal wedding video book allowing members of the public to upload video messages of support, which will be viewed by the couple.

Wedding video booths are becoming more popular than guest books at marriage receptions, where visitors can leave heartfelt messages and tributes to the couple which are later edited into a seamless package.

Those who have a Twitter account can also send in their well wishes to the prince and his bride-to-be using the hashtag #rw2011.

A St James’s Palace spokesman said: “People who wish to can record their own video message or congratulations message and submit it to us – there will be some pre-moderation as you would expect, but hopefully the majority of those messages will be sent in good faith and we’ll be able to put them up on the site.”

The video book, on the Royal Channel on YouTube, is part of the palace’s plan to provide a wide coverage of the royal wedding on April 29.

The monarchy’s social media presence from the Clarence House Twitter feed to the royal Flickr and Facebook accounts will also be used.
