London: For those who don't have an invitation to Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding, here's a reason to rejoice -- you may still be able to witness the couple tying the knot, just like you're there.
Well, that's is possible only if plans to broadcast the royal wedding in 3-D gets an approval from the Buckingham Palace, the 'Daily Mail' reported.
Broadcaster BSkyB confirmed this week that they were "optimistic" about plans to show the royal wedding in 3-D but the final decision will lie with the palace. And BBC veteran David Dimbleby is also said to be in talks with the satellite broadcaster over hosting the wedding.
The marriage of Prince William, 28, and Kate, 29, at Westminster Abbey, on Friday April 29, is expected to draw in a huge worldwide audience. The couple got engaged in October.
Mike Darcey, Chief Operating Officer at BSkyB, said 3-D technology was suited to "event television".
He said: "It could be those big sporting events, may be those big arts events, potentially those big sort of general entertainment events where you really, really make an appointment to view it."
He told a meeting of the Broadcasting Press Guild: "I suspect the key decision maker is probably going to be the royal family, rather than the BBC. We're optimistic, we're hopeful that we can persuade them this will be a good thing."
