The Royal Channel on YouTube will air April 29th wedding events in London, live.

The April 29 royal wedding between Britain's Prince William and Catherine Middleton will be streamed live on an official royal channel on the Internet video-sharing site, YouTube.

Palace officials said Tuesday the event will include four hours of live coverage including the ceremony at Westminster Abbey, the procession to Buckingham Palace, and the newlyweds' first expected public kiss during an appearance on the palace balcony.

The royal family is making extensive use of the Internet for the events leading up to the wedding, in accordance with William and Kate's wish to make it as accessible to as many people as possible. In addition, for the first time ever, YouTube will show a live blog alongside its live wedding stream. The blog will be assembled by royal officials.

Photographs of the wedding will be available on the photo-sharing site, Flickr, while special announcements will be available on the official wedding site.
