In the midst of a whirlwind couple of weeks for both Prince William and Kate Middleton, they have finally announced the date that the nation has been waiting for. It was tipped that bookies had suspended betting for April yesterday as rumours flew for a wedding on the 28th or 29th of April.
The date for the wedding of the century is finally set for the 29th of April 2011 and will take place in Westminster Abbey. Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to flock to the capital to line the streets in celebration for this momentous occasion. But despite this huge announcement only just being made, demand for hotels in London is incredible!
It was confirmed that the royal wedding will be a public holiday (yey!) allowing as many people as possible to be able to join in the celebrations. Directly following the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, the wedding will create another 4 day weekend for the British public and a 3 day working week (double yey!). Many pubs and clubs are already confirming celebration events to be held throughout the city on this double bank holiday weekend.
So as the date draws closer and the collectable crockery and tea towels go on sale outside Buckingham Palace, expect to see the wheels in motion for plenty of good old fashioned street parties.
What have you got planned for this double bank holiday weekend?
