That makes the royalty almost as popular as Morecambe and Wise. Who regularly pulled figures higher than that. And did it more than once a lifetime. And on a microscopic budget. And without paying everyone in the country a days wage to watch.
And with those same inducements (and the months of incessant groundwork) Royalty even succeeded in being more popular for a day than Simon Cowell's X Factor, from which they no doubt learned a lot.
Yes, we must say to Will'n'Kate -
Didn't They Do Well!
