Are William & Kate More Popular Than Barack & Michelle?
The Obama’s and the royal couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton, have stolen the limelight in the last few years. These two couples have been undoubtedly the most famous and most popular couples on the planet. But who is more popular? Are Prince William and Kate more popular than Barack and Michelle Obama? Let’s try to find out.
Number of people watching their ceremonies
Did you know that an estimated 38 million people tuned into Obama’s acceptance speech? On the other hand, about 122 million people were watching the wedding ceremony of Prince William and Kate Middleton. So, if you asked us who is more popular, Barack and Michelle Obama or Prince William and Kate Middleton based on the number of people watching their first few moments of glory on television, we would pick the latter.
The cost factor
Here are some more hair raising numbers for you. While Barack Obama’s election victory speech cost the Obama election campaign about $2 million, the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton is estimated to cost around £20 million! The reason for this massive difference in cost of these events is because of the scale of celebrations. We know it is a bit odd to compare the celebration of a presidential election victory in America and the celebrations of a royal wedding in UK, but these two events have been symbolic in taking these two couples to fame and stardom.
