Prince William and his beautifulÂ fiancÃ©e, Kate Middleton have set a wedding date…for a spring wedding–April 29, 2011 in Westminster Abbey. TheyÂ didn’tÂ waste too much time since they have only been engaged for about a month but they have been dating for like 8 years! I think a spring wedding is great for them!
According to theÂ London Daily Mail, the longtime couple wanted a short engagement and is calling the shots for their walk down the aisle.
While there was speculation over who would pay for the nuptials, it was confirmed that the Royal Family and the Middleton family would foot the bill, but the taxpayers money would be going to the enormous amount of police security on the day of the wedding.
The pair chose to marry at Westminster Abbey for it’s ‘staggering beauty’ and its intimate feel, the paper says. The Abbey is also where Prince Andrew and Fergie wed in 1986 and Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip married in 1947. It is also the site of Princess Diana’s 1997 funeral.
The date of their wedding, April 29, will become a national holiday and according to Daily Mail, the date holds significance in Great Britain because it falls on St. Catherine’s Day, which is celebrated by single women praying for a husband.
