  • Westminster Abbey on Google Earth

    Google Earth, the company's interactive mapping program, has conjured up 3D representations of London landmarks in time for the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on Friday.

    After the royal couple has tied the knot, they will set off by coach for a procession through the streets of London. People around the world can check out the wedding route in 3D from the comfort of their own armchairs, using the Google Maps add-on.

    The route begins at Westminster Abbey in Parliament Square, the traditional venue for royal weddings and coronations.
