A download of the couple's nuptials will be available to buy, just hours after the ceremony
You may not have got your hands on an invite to the royal wedding, but now officials have released plans for the next best thing – a digital recording of Prince William and Kate Middleton saying ‘I do’.
The vows will be released on iTunes just hours after they’ve been exchanged by the happy couple at Westminster Abbey, all for the bargain price of 79p.
Classical label Decca records confirmed plans to release a recording of the ceremony yesterday, revealing they expect it to sell millions around the world.
It’s thought an album of the entire, hour-long nuptials, will be recorded as the ceremony takes place on April 29, and will cover the vows, readings, and music from the choir and London Chamber Orchestra.
It will also include a booklet documenting the special ceremony, including readings, hymns, vows and blessings, as well as the order of service.
Tracks from the album will be available for download individually, and could be priced from 79p.
Industry insiders already predict the album will shoot to the top of the iTunes chart, revealing we could have the first ever royal number one on our hands.

‘I think we could well be looking at the first ever number one royal album, and if enough people start to download their favourite parts of the service then you could even have a situation where the royal couple find themselves on the top of the singles charts as well,’ an HMV spokesman told the Daily Mail.
£1 from every album sold in the UK will be donated to Prince William’s charitable foundation.
