London: The royal wedding is expected to break all previous viewing records to become the most watched programme in television`s history.

British Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said that two billion people around the world are expected to tune in to watch Prince William and Kate Middleton exchange wedding vows on April 29, reports the Scotsman.

That would be twice the number who saw William`s parents, the Prince of Wales and Diana Spencer, marry in 1981.
