PM gives Royal Wedding bank holiday the go ahead
It was reported recently that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding will be declared a public holiday.
The incentive for creating another national holiday comes from the Palace’s wish for the Royal wedding to be seen by the public as the “People’s Wedding”. This move might have been architected to battle against the criticism that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding will place even more financial strain on Britain’s fragile public finances.
The final decision for making the day a public holiday rests with the Government and not the Palace, however the official word from Downing street is that David Cameron has given the green light in principle.
The Palace are yet to set an official date for the Royal Wedding but if it should fall in a Saturday or Sunday, the British public will have either Friday or Monday as a bank holiday.
What do you think? Should the next Royal Wedding be a low ket affair? Is a big extravagant wedding too much for this period of austerity or do you think next year’s Royal Wedding is an opportunity to lift Britain’s spirits and potentially boost the economy through tourism?
