(PRWEB) April 8, 2005
Web users across the globe will be able to follow the Royal Wedding from the comfort of their computers as technology entrepreneurs launch two direct web cams, http://www.royalweddingcam.com, today. The announcement comes as private auctions and online bidding frenzies have commenced with people across the world offering up to Â£5,000 for a wedding view.
Network Webcams Ltd, an online network camera company, in partnership with the prestigious owned ÂMacdonald Castle HotelÂ have set up two powerful web cams on the roof of the hotel. The hotel is based in the heart of the historic town of Windsor and is directly across the street from the Guildhall where the Civil Ceremony is taking place. The two web cams running via satellite will offer the strongest link to the Royal wedding.
Network Webcams want to harness the opportunities the Royal web cams can offer following the huge success of their web cam in Dornoch, overlooking the Cathedral where Madonna and Guy Ritchie attended the christening service of their son Rocco, their only public appearance during their wedding celebrations in the Highlands,
ÂThere was a huge increase in Scottish tourism following the vast number of people from across the world viewing MadonnaÂs only public appearance during her wedding celebrations in the Highlands through our web cam,Â said Robert Kilgour, Chairman of Network Webcams.
ÂWe want to make sure that the UK benefits from this potential tourism boost again by offering every PC user in the world the chance to follow the Royal Wedding. Not from a Â£5,000 post on a roof, or through an online bidding war but free and with the best seat in the house.Â
Network Webcams Ltd is the only global online provider to offer complementary street views of the ceremony.
The site will be live from Thursday April 6th at http://www.royalweddingcam.com when internet users will be able to log on and get a sneak preview of the wedding venue as well as viewing the build up to the wedding of the year. On Saturday, Royal watchers will be able to view, online, members of the Royal family, attending, and departing, the civil marriage of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles.
Over 6.2 million Internet visitors watched events surrounding the celebrated Madonna appearance in Dornoch, broadcast online by Network Webcams Ltd. Now with more advanced and accurate technology available the world can enjoy a better show in Windsor.
