Mark your calendars – the date has been set for the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. It has been reported that the wedding will take place Friday, April 29, 2011.
The location of the April wedding is said to be London’s Westminster Abbey, the venue for the 1947 wedding of the then Princess Elizabeth.
Many were expecting a summer wedding, but Prince William is said to have wanted a short engagement and himself and Kate both wished for a Spring wedding.
April 29 will be declared a national holiday, with thousands of guests expected to attend the wedding and millions more watching on TV and online.
“They wanted a Friday. They wanted a spring wedding and they wanted to give the country a day off,” royal expert Katie Nicholl told Good Morning America.
