Will we get a day off for the Wedding?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have announced they are engaged to be married next year.

But will we get a day off when the pair tie the knot? Here's all you need to know...


Will we get a bank holiday when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get married?

When Prince Harry and Kate Middleton tied the knot at Westminster Abbey, the nation enjoyed a bank holiday to celebrate.

But it's sadly not likely that the same will happen for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

A "royal insider" revealed to Us Weekly that 33-year-old royal Prince Harry may spurn the traditional public wedding at Westminster Abbey in favour of a more private affair.

Well a less-than traditional wedding could also mean that the traditional Royal Wedding Bank Holiday is cancelled.

It will be down to the Government to decide whether we get the day off.

Prince Harry is fifth in line for the throne, whereas William is set to be the future king.


What are people saying about the bank holiday for the royal wedding?

As the news of the engagement has spread, one of the biggest questions on many people's lips is "will we get the day off?"

Many have taken to Twitter to share their comical reaction to the news and whether they will get to miss work next spring.


When will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get married?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set for a spring wedding next year after announcing their engagement.

The smitten royal popped the question to the Suits star in London earlier this month following a year-long whirlwind romance.

The American actress will live with Prince Harry in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace once they are wed next year.

A palace spokesman said: "His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms Meghan Markle.

"The wedding will take place in Spring 2018.

"Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course."
