The official Royal Wedding website celebrating the marriage of Prince William and Catherine Middleton was launched yesterday by St James’s Palace. It was designed by digital consultancy Reading Room, which is based in London, Manchester, Australia and Singapore.

The website is the official information service for people interested in the forthcoming Royal Wedding. Regular announcements of wedding details in the run up to the wedding day will appear on the site.

The website will be regularly updated with exclusive content, including photo galleries, features, videos and will bring together all of the official social media around the event.

Reading Room worked with Clarence House, Accenture and Google to create the site. The site is hosted by Google App Engine, which is designed to handle large, global peaks in web traffic, and was built by Accenture,  while design and creative advice was provided by Reading Room.
