Yeah, I totally believe that Letizia's wedding was the most watched royal wedding. All South America was interested and here in Europe, all the Portuguese people I know didn't lost a piece of it

Well, It has to be C&D beyond all doubt. But I will add here that I have never seen a royal wedding (although I did see Charles and Camilla's blessing) as there really isnt anywhere near enough demand here in NZ. Which has frustrated me no end.

Most "Watched" "Wedding"

The marital perturbations of Charles and Di and Di's later antics made their marriage the most "watched" "marriage" in history even if more people watched the wedding of Letizia and Felipe!

I remember watching the weddings of Felipe & Letizia, Fred & Mary, and of course Charles and Diana. However, I'm certain I didn't see W-A and Maxima's.

I was not aware that Letizia and Felipe held the distinction of having the most watched wedding. Wow!

According to this blog, Charles and Diana's wedding was the most watched ever : over 17 million viewers.

But if you look at wikipedia's record here, it went to 28.40 million viewers. (as you can see, her funeral attracted more people ...)

In my personal opinion, I believe that the most watched Royal Wedding is Princess Dianaīs. Because British Royalty is known in the world. On the other hand, I donīt agree 2.1 billion people watched letizia and felipe wedding, for example in United States donīt know about spanish royals. There, is popular Princess Diana, her sons: William and Harry; maybe Caroline, Albert and Stephanie of Monaco.

MARTHA, I am from the USA and watched the entire wedding of Letizia & Felipe along with almost everyone else that I know here. We, also watched Diana & Charles but since it was rerun on cable the following Saturday, most of us went to work the actual day. Never even saw a blip about Maxima and Alexander's wedding on the news. Since over 13% of the population of America are now Spanish speaking, Felipe's wedding was quite a draw on the TV.

I do not speak the Spanish language, but some of the cable stations did have sub titles.

Winnie, yes I know that in United States have a lot of spanish population. However, 13 percent is about 18 million more less, If you suposse that all people watched letizia and felipe wedding.

Martha, I guess I didn't make myself clear. I meant that since there is a fair sized Spanish speaking population in the USA, the wedding of Letizia & Felipe was shown on TV and it enabled all of the millions in America to watch. It was available to us. There are very few Dutch so I guess that Willem & Maxima's wasn't a priority. I doubt we would ever get to see Victoria (when she marries) either.

I remember watchng 5 minutes of the Letizia's wedding on one of the spanish channels here in New York. I think t was Telemundo.

But Charles and Diana's wedding is one of the most memorable weddings of the late 20th century.

You're right and what a shame. If you ask most Americans to name a ruling queen, you will of course get Elizabeth II. Ask most of us to name a future ruling queen...no impact, no idea.

I saw it on Telemundo around midnight or in the wee hours of the morning. Fatigue set in and I had to stop watching.

The biggest audience for Felipe and Letizia's wedding wasn't in the US, even though it's broadcast in the US. It's in South and Central America where affinity to Spain is still running high. I don't know about the 2.1 billion number though. But considering there are more TV sets in 2004 than 1980, the Spanish wedding could have a bigger audience than Charles and Diana's wedding.

I have important reasons to think PrincessīDiana is the most watched wedding in the world. Because British royalty is famous in the world no only in english speaking countries, in everywhere.

I read that audience for letizia and felipeīs wedding was low in Spain. I think internet has changed the life, in the past was difficult to know about the real situation, now is different.

I knew Felipe and Letizia's wedding would be a big draw but I had never realised the figures were so high.

I watched, too, Charles and Diana wedding, and so did everyone I know. And she did not disappoint anyone. She was truly a fairy tale princess. The whole world fell in love.
