The Royal wedding will take place on Friday April 29th at Westminster Abbey. According to William’s private secretary the venue was chosen for its “staggering beauty” and intimacy regardless of size.

This is where Charles and Diana were married in 1981.

The Royal family and the Middleton’s will cover the costs of the actual wedding, but UK taxpayers will pay for additional security and transportation. Both William and Kate, who are said to be “calling the shots” on the plans for this momentous day, are very conscious of the current economic climate. William has made it clear that any involvement by the armed forces should not result in personnel being taken away from operations.

David Cameron has declared April 29th a public holiday to mark this “happy and momentous occasion”. Scotland is yet to announce whether it will follow England and also declare a public holiday.
