Can't get enough of the British prince and his fiancee', Catherine Middleton? Try officialroyalwedding2011.org for details on the April 29, ceremony. You'll find links to the wedding service and procession, a virtual tour of Buckingham Palace, and a link to British Royal Family's Twitter feed.

The Mirror says the site got 800,000 hits in a few hours. What's more fun is the Guardian's write-up, which says it's like reading a tabloid on your IPad: "the vessel is modern but the content is defiantly retro".

I couldn't find the link to those 'dodgy' Royal Wedding commemorative coins where Kate looks "chunkier and older' while William gets an 'Elvis quiff". Mark had it for us here, though.
