Graphical representation o% the RNG data collected 'y B.W. d2ring the Royal Wedding o% rince William and )atherine *iddleton on the morning o% April +,& +-11. The c2r$ed red arcs indicate the threshold o% statistical signi%icance at the .-F and .,F le$els (i.e.& odds o% +- to 1 against chance! as time passes.
Thro2gho2t the p2'lic e$ents o% the #edding& the RNG data seem to exhi'it a rather steady negati$e (i.e.& decreasing or do#n#ard! de$iation %rom standard randomness that is act2ally
to my prediction& and that e$ent2ally exceeds the lo#er threshold o% statistical signi%icance at the .,F le$el. This de$iation is so steady that& had I predicted its occ2rrence 'e%orehand& it #o2ld ha$e odds o% a'o2t 1-- to 1 against chance ()hi6s2are H 1@FF@.-?& 1---

These data #ere collected 2sing the same RNG& 2nder ro2ghly the same conditions& and d2ring the same time period as the act2al #edding data (#ith the only di%%erence 'eing that the control data #ere o%%set in time 'y one day!. These matching control data are sho#n in "ig2re +.
