LOS ANGELES- Almost 23 million American TV viewers tuned in to watch live coverage of Prince William's marriage to Kate Middleton on Friday despite the wedding taking place before dawn in much of the United States.

But according to Nielsen ratings data released on Saturday, US TV viewing interest in the British royal nuptials in London was far below that of Princess Diana's funeral in 1997.

Nielsen said 22.7 million Americans watched live coverage of the royal wedding on 11 US networks. In comparison, 33.2 million tuned in to watch the funeral of Princess Diana in London in September 1997. Diana, the mother of Prince William, was killed in car crash at the age of 36.
