It looks likely that the Cayman Islands will add the wedding date of Prince William and Kate Middleton to the list of public holidays in 2011.
The royal wedding is set to take place on 29 April at Westminster Abbey.
“I understand that Cabinet has discussed this and is likely at some stage soon – though I obviously can’t be 100 per cent sure about this – to vote in favour of the Schedule of the Public Holidays Law (2007 Revision) being amended to make 29 April, 2011, the date of the Royal Wedding, a public holiday,” said Head of the Governor’s Office Steve Moore.
The decision for an additional holiday is made by Cabinet and that will most likely happen in the new year, according to the Governor’s office.
Prince William Arthur Philip Louis of Wales is the oldest son, 28, of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales. His younger brother, Henry Charles Albert David, is often referred to as Prince Harry.
Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, or Kate, grew up in Berkshire and met William at the University of St. Andrews in 2001. The couple announced their engagement on 16 November.
