Royal wedding overtakes Google — and the rest of the Internet

Have your scones and champagne at hand? Your pouncy Philip Treacy fascinator on your head? No? You slept in and skipped the wedding? Don’t worry. Ned Martel over in Style has dutifully live blogged the wedding of the century/universe/millennium.

Even if you’re as crotchety as Dan Rather over the wedding festivities, there’s little you can do this morning to get away from it. Google has given over their doodle to the celebration happening in London. It also reports that the wedding has overtaken search results for April, with people checking in on all the details, from the carriages to the fruitcake. (Yes, that’s the royal wedding cake flavor of choice. The Brits may have a great taste in princesses — not so much in food.) A reported 2.1 million tweets have flown across the Internet thus far. A live-streaming video company reports to technology blog Mashable, all records for concurrent viewership have been broken — more than 2 million people will log onto Livestream to see the wedding. And, whether you admit it or not, you know you want to know what dress Kate Middleton wore.

Curmudgeon or not, go check out the best details of the wedding at the Post’s Royal Wedding Watch Blog. And slice yourself some fruitcake. Happy wedding’ing.
