Royal Marriage on Friday 29 April at Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey, the venue of the Queen and Queen Mothers wedding, will host the Marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton, on Friday 29 April. Prime Minister David Cameron, a big fan of Royal weddings, called it “a happy and momentous occasion” and announced it would be marked a public holiday.

The Couple is well aware of the global interest in their wedding. Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, the prince’s private secretary, has been asked to make sure that everybody is able to enjoy the big day.

The Dean of Westminster is very pleased that the couple chose Westminster Abbey for their marriage: “We look forward to the detailed planning for what will be a great and happy occasion for the couple themselves, for their families and friends, for the country and Commonwealth and for well-wishers across the globe,” he said.

According to the BBC, William and Kate wanted to marry on a Friday in spring and 29 April was chosen because it fell after Easter and Lent and before a busy political programme in May and June. The extra holiday will fall in the same week as Easter Monday, giving millions of workers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland a three-day week.
