So you missed Catherine and William's early-morning nuptials and are itching to catch up online. But one Internet security company warns that searching for info on the royals online carries the risk of turning up malicious results.
To mark the royal wedding, Norton released its top-10 list of most dangerous royal wedding search results.
Topping the list of search terms that generate malicious results is "prince harry last name," followed by "princess diana death date." Curiously, "prince charles alzheimer's" is the third-place search, followed by a search for the Prince of Wales' age.
Rap fans beware: "royal wedding guest list kanye" brings up the first half of the list, coming in fifth place.
The sixth- through 10th-place most dangerous searches are:
-the royal wedding date and time
-william and kate movie cast
-prince harry paternity
-william and kate movie release date
-william and kate imdb
Norton warns would-be royal searchers to think before they click, avoiding links that promise "leaked footage, offer scandalous pictures or purport to have secret information." Norton also suggests avoiding never-before-heard-of websites and sticking to trusted sources of online information, as well as protecting your computer with security software.
