Royal Wedding Marked with Traditional Google Doodle

Posted on Apr 29 2011 - 11:41am by Richard Sharp

As the whole world celebrates the Royal wedding various technology sites have put up the bunting including Google who has gone all out with a very special Royal Wedding Google Doodle.

The celebratory logo depicts the the happy couple traveling by traditional horse and carriage through a romantic looking London. The scene starts at Westminster Abbey with the Royal newly weds being showered with red, white and blue confetti as they travel down the street. Other landmarks include the London eye and a fairytale caste on the right hand side of the doodle.

Below the Doodle is a direct link to the live YouTube channel where the wedding was shown and news reports and celebrations will run throughout the day. If you click on the Doodle the page navigates to a search results page for the Royal Wedding, unsurprisingly this shows a monumental 196 million search results at the time of writing. Atop the results will show your closest public venue for watching the days events unfold,this is different depending on where you are in the country. Our local was the Vue Cinema, Cribbs Causeway in Bristol.

This is not the first time Google has marked a special event, although it is the first time they have designed a doodle especially for a wedding. It’s a nice sentiment and which is currently being displayed on both the UK site and google.com.

What do you think of today’s Royal Doodle?
