Kate Middleton and Prince William will marry on Friday 29th April at Westminster Abbey.
I can scarcely contain my indifference, even at this early stage; but congratulations to them all the same.

Number 10 has confirmed that the occasion will be marked by a public holiday. There is, you see, nothing like a right Royal bash and the darling buds of May to dispel the privations of austerity
ahead of awkward elections and a referendum on 5th May. Then again, an Arctic breeze and intermittent hail will have the opposite effect.
