I tried to suggest an idea to both the British Royal Family and to BBC News, where they could have done that.
I suggested that they find or create a high resolution photograph of the Queen and the Royal Couple. They would make that photo into a digital photograph of a specific type called a BMP file. I thought they might use a resolution of maybe 3000 pixels horizontally and 1000 pixels vertically. A BMP file has the format of three bytes (or nine bytes) of data for each pixel, where those bytes specify the three component colors of each pixel, as RED, GREEN and BLUE quantities.

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!
