The whole of Britain has been given the day off to celebrate the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton who have announced when and where they will wed.
The royal couple will marry on April 29, 2011 at Westminster Abbey where Princess Diana's funeral service was held in 1997.
But possibly to cast off the sad memories, Prince William wants a party-like atmosphere outside the historic venue as he says his vows.
And the UK public could oblige - the following Monday is a public holiday too, so they will all have a massive four-day weekend to celebrate. Or to escape to Europe on Ryanair.
In a shock move, Kate's parents will split the cost of the nuptials with the royals to avoid charging the taxpayer - although the public have to cover the cost of transport and security.
"All parties involved in the wedding, not least Prince William and Miss Middleton, want to ensure that a balance is struck between an enjoyable day and the current economic situation," Prince William's private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton said.
The happy couple are said to have chosen Westminster Abbey because of its intimate feel.
They want a traditional wedding to show Britain as its best, which some people say might be hard since it almost always rains in April.
They're also keen to have street parties for the public.
Prince William and Kate are said to be "on cloud nine" since agreeing to the date, which required much discussion among politicans, the Queen, the army and clergy.
Coincidentally April 29 is also St Catherine's Day (Kate will be known as Princess Catherine once she marries) and is also the day Hitler married Eva Braun. Just sayin'.
