Le nozze reali tra il principe William e Kate Middleton hanno già battuto un primato: quello del media event più affollato della storia. I numeri della copertura giornalistica messi in fila dal Financial Times fanno paura.
The Foreign Press Association estimated that as many as 3,000 journalists would cover the wedding for non-UK media outlets. “Foreign media care because the royal wedding is the perfect storm,” said Christopher Wyld, FPA director. “It is a combination of the best reality television, the best soap opera and there is real history on top of that.” More than 100 foreign photographers have applied for accreditation outside Westminster Abbey, where the marriage will take place, and along the route between the abbey and Buckingham Palace. Television and radio broadcasters have built 48 studios for the event.
