The broadcast of last Friday’s Royal Wedding has topped Apple’s iTunes chart, beating off competition from the likes of Doctor Who and The Inbetweeners. The free download shows higlights of the wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, and can be downloaded by clicking here.

The first royal wedding of the “digital age”, the event broke live streaming records around the globe. “Concurrent live streams of royal wedding on Akamai surpassed the 1.6 million peak set by World Cup in June of 2010,” the company has revealed.

Twitter and Facebook too were buzzing with updates on the regal couple’s big day; the royal wedding was mentioned 67 times a second Twitter, and 74 times a second on Facebook.
