The Royal Wedding date is set for 29 April 2011

The gorgeous Kate Middleton and Prince William Wales have set their wedding date for Friday April 29th 2011.

So Wills and Kate have confirmed their wedding date, and better still, David Cameron has confirmed April 29th will be a bank holiday for Britain. So there's no excuse not to wave your union jack flag, pull out your hankies and sit down in front of the box to share in their big day. Better still, why not dust off the Charles and Diana china for the occasion.

With the May bank holiday, the Royal Wedding bank holiday and Easter resting nearby, Britain will actually only have three working days between April 22 and May 2, and there'll be three short working weeks in a row. Awesome!

The cost of the Royal Wedding bank holiday to the British economy - in terms of lost productivity and overtime payments - is said to be a huge six billion pounds. It's just as well the Royal Family and the Middletons are paying for the wedding themselves!

It's worth taking into account that the six billion cost to the country will be offset -  revenue generated from additional tourism, royal memorabilia and the extra free time for shopping and partying will benefit retailers.
