Royal Wedding bounty of statistics:

"The Official Royal Wedding web site generated over 2,000 requests per second, serving 15 million page views from 5.6 million visitors on the day of the wedding. Despite this load, the web site ran smoothly, serving off Google’s shared platform without disturbing the other 200,000+ apps, which collectively serve over 1.5 billion views per day.

However, from a load perspective, the really busy Google App Engine app was the YouTube Royal Channel site. This app's traffic peaked at 32,000 requests per second (!) - with an additional 10,000 requests per second during the 10 seconds around the kiss(es)."
