Before the Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in early
2011, they considered a variety of ideas to try to make the
event even more momentous than it was certain to be.|
I tried to suggest an idea to both the British Royal Family and to BBC News, where they could have done that.

Then 3,000,000 schoolchildren would mail their index card to a specific address in London. Workers would take the index cards to an airport hangar where they would affix each index card to its correct location on many plywood panels.
On the night before the Wedding, construction crews would truck the many plywood panels into London, where they would be temporarily attached to the side of some large building, maybe 20 stories tall and 600 feet wide.
The result would be the largest photographic image that has ever been created, around 600 feet by 200 feet, which would be an image which would have remarkably excellent quality. The image would likely be clearly visible more than 15 miles away!
The most important feature of this project would have been that many millions of young children from everywhere in the British Commonwealth would have realized that THEY had participated in the Wedding, even if they never left New Zealand or Australia or Canada. A second important feature would have been that this entire project would have had very minimal cost!
