Media Takes Over London for Royal Wedding
INSIDE EDITION’s Deborah Norville caught up with other American TV personalities as the media takes over London for the royal wedding that a reported 2 billion people will watch.
Right in front of Buckingham Palace a city park has turned into media city. There are 8,000 journalists in London to cover the big event. In one area of the park there are 300 satellite trucks have made for a massive media invasion.
America's most prominent TV personalities have made the trip across the pond.
INSIDE EDITION's Deborah Norville caught up with Meredith Vieira on the set of the Today show, just steps from Buckingham Palace.
Vieira said, "I think people in America really connect to William and his brother because of Diana. Just seeing Kate Middleton come out of that car will be something that I'll be looking forward to seeing."
Norville asked, "Do you cry at weddings?"
"I went to the Abbey on Sunday for Easter services and I started thinking about her walking down the aisle and I started to cry. And at first I was thinking, 'Stop it. You can't already start.' But I am a romantic at heart," said Vieira.
The city of London is so rich in history, it's providing a spectacular backdrop. The Early Show's Erica Hill is positioned next to the Tower of London.
Norville asked, "Everybody's here and everybody's here in a really big way. Why do you suppose that is?"
"It's true. There seems to be this love affair in the States with the royal family. Maybe it's because we don't have a royal family of our own. Maybe it's because a lot of us love to see a fairy tale wedding. We're all rooting for something," said Hill.
We found The Early Show crew in bare feet.
Hill explained, "Because we have a lovely oatmeal colored carpet and no one wants it to look dirty."
Good Morning America broadcast today from the garden of Kensington Palace, where Princess Diana lived before her death.
Co-host Robin Roberts told INSIDE EDITION's Diane McInerney that along with the thrill of witnessing history in the making, she's enjoying the time difference.
"I'll tell you, the hours are a lot better because we work on a morning show back in the States and we're up bright and early. So we get to have a nightlife a little bit and enjoy ourselves. And it's wonderful that people know who we are and what we're about and are appreciative that we're embracing their culture and the wedding as much as we are," said Roberts.
