The broadcast of Queen Elizabeth’s funeral is believed to have set an all-time viewing record.
According to experts cited by the British media as well as media around the world, the funeral of Queen Elizabeth was watched by over 4.1 billion television viewers around the world without counting the streaming that took place through platforms and social media, so the television viewing it will shoot up even more.
If, in the end, this has happened, Queen Elizabeth’s funeral will be the most-watched event in history, surpassing such major historical events as the marriage of Charles to Diana in 1981, the funeral of Princess Diana in 1997, the moment when Harry and Meghan exchanged vows of eternal love, but also William’s wedding with Kate.
So if, as the special analyst Carolina Beltramo claims, the Queen’s funeral was watched by almost half of the world’s population (4.1 billion viewers), then it has indeed broken the all-time record.
According to the viewing figures, major events watched:
Funeral of Queen Diana (1997): 2.5 billion viewers
Wedding of Princess Diana and Charles (1981): 750 million viewers
Harry and Meghan exchange vows (2018): 1.9 billion viewers
The Wedding of William and Kate (2011) 162 million viewers
The biggest television viewership record so far is the opening ceremony of the Atlanta Olympic Games (1996) with 3.6 billion viewers.
