Now for a bonus photo! The McVitie’s Cake Company created this chocolate biscuit cake for the reception at Prince William’s request. It was made from a royal family recipe.

Here’s another cool interactive chart! This one shows Twitter traffic and comments in London throughout the entire wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. (Thank you to Lori and Ross at Tableau Software for this chart!)

Please note: I am posting this because it’s an interesting look at Twitter activity during the wedding, but I did not design this chart and, of course, I have no control over its content. It may contain some offensive remarks.
