The royal wedding was being mentioned around 67 times a second on Twitter as viewers took to the social network to publish their thoughts on the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton. On Facebook the wedding was dominating status updates, with around 74 mentions every second.

The trending topics on both sites were dominated by the wedding. On Twitter terms including Westminster Abbey, Camilla, Jerusalem and dress designer Sarah Burton were all being mentioned repeatedly. Facebook’s trending keywords were led by royal wedding, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Key search terms on Google were also wedding related, with Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and “Kate Middleton wedding dress” being used most often.
