The media frenzy would lead you to believe everyone on the planet will be glued to television or radio April 29th when Kate and William tie the knot. But the truth is...

For every Londoner or Brit who will clamor to England's largest city

for a glimpse of the event, millions will be leaving town--to escape.  According to the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) 3 million Brits will be traveling overseas during that period, most, according to polls, to escape what they believe will be a frenzie whipped up by months of media coverage and build up to the biggest event in Britain since the marriage of Diana and Charles.  In fact, many Londoners learned from that experience that the city will be a logistical mess for several days around the wedding.  According to ABTA and other sources, 45 percent of British citizens do not plan to follow or take in the ceremony in any fashion.  Besides the three million who will be traveling,  it is estimated hundreds of thousands from London and surrounding areas will be on "holiday" in rural areas of the countryside...many of them 'for their sanity.'  It's not that Britons don't care about the wedding or their tradition, it's just all the media coverage, frenzy and lunacy that accompanys it.
