(CBS/AP) The upcoming royal wedding is garnering large amounts of publicity as the world watches a modern monarchy continue in its tradition. So far, people can't seem to get enough.

But how much is too much? Television networks are planning hours upon hours of programming tied to this spring's royal wedding.

Not only will the wedding be aired live, there is also a Lifetime movie and a TLC special on hoarders who collect royal memorabilia in the works.

BBC America has already aired two special programs: "William & Kate: Modern Monarchy" and "Modern Monarchy: Here and There," and plans to air them again closer to the wedding date.

The royal fever is extending to programming outside of the upcoming wedding, with potential specials highlighting Princess Diana, her two sons and royal lineage.

William and Middleton will be married at London's Westminster Abbey on April 29.
