Royal Wedding has more YouTube views than Britain has people

YouTube’s livestream of the Royal Wedding was viewed more than 72 million times last Friday, the company has revealed.

That’s a higher number than the number of people living in the UK. In fact, if royal wedding web viewers were to form a nation (perhaps one in which everyone wears fancy hats), it would be the 19th largest country in the world.

And those 72 million views only represent YouTube’s official Royal Channel. Several other platforms also posted live video of the royal wedding. For instance, Livestream reported that the event set a new record on its site with 300,000 concurrent visitors.

Wedding viewers were mostly from the United Kingdom and United States, according to the YouTube blog. Italy, Germany and France had the next-highest number of viewers on the platform.
