According to a report in the U.K.'s Daily Mail, some broadcasters are considering plans to make their coverage of the April 29 ceremony at Westminster Abbey available in 3-D, either in venues such as theaters and bars or at home, for viewers who have 3-D television.

Sky, the BBC and Virgin are said to be in joint discussions, The Daily Mail reported, quoting Jana Bennett, the director of BBC Vision as confirming early meetings had taken place with other broadcasters.

It would be a far cry from the televised 1981 wedding ceremony between William's parents, Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, which was watched by tens of millions across the globe.

The couple announced their engagement Nov. 16, several weeks after William proposed during the couple's trip to Africa.
