Prince William and Kate Middleton to marry on 29 April in Westminster Abbey

Next year’s royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton will take place at Westminster Abbey on 29 April.

Downing Street has confirmed the date will also be a public bank holiday. The additional Friday holiday will mark the start of a four-day weekend, ending with the May Day bank holiday on 2 May.

Westminster Abbey has hosted the weddings of the Queen and Queen Mother and was the venue for Princess Diana’s funeral in 1997.

The Royal family and the Middletons will bear most of the costs associated with the event with the Palace confirming that the families of the couple will pay for the service, the reception and the honeymoon, although any associated costs such as security, policing and cleaning streets will be picked up by the taxpayer.

The couple, who made their engagement public last week, are planning to live in north Wales near to the RAF Valley base where Prince William works as an RAF rescue pilot after the wedding.
