When your extended wedding guest list includes over two billion people from around the world, there can be no dispute over your celebrity status. And as the world counts down to tune in at all hours of the day and night to watch the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, their star is set to skyrocket.
“You’re talking about a stratospherically big event, and it will propel William and Kate into the absolute quadruple A list of celebrity,” British journalist and CNN host Piers Morgan told The Huffington Post Thursday. “They will automatically, by tomorrow night, be the two biggest stars on the planet. We will have a new Diana and Charles from when they got married.”
Morgan, speaking from London, where he will co-host CNN’s Royal Wedding coverage and provide commentary on the actual ceremony, described the scene on the streets of the English capital as balloon-like, growing larger and larger as the week has progressed. By the time the wedding procession starts on Friday, over a million onlookers will be watching on gigantic televisions set up in the city’s parks. But the jammed public spaces and record TV audiences are just the beginning for the future monarchs.
