32% Will Tune In To The Royal Wedding

Thursday, May 17, 2018

The Royal Wedding between Great Britain’s Prince Henry (Harry) of Wales and American actress Meghan Markle is set to take place Saturday morning. Though Americans don’t see this wedding getting quite the media fanfare that Prince William and Catherine Middleton’s “wedding of the century” received eight years ago, nearly as many will be watching this wedding as the last.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 41% of American Adults say the media is paying too much attention to the royal nuptials. Forty percent (40%) say the level of media attention is about right, while just six percent (6%) say there’s not enough coverage. Thirteen percent (13%) aren’t sure how they feel about the amount of coverage the impending wedding is receiving. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
