As Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Announce Their Engagement We All Have One Question

Following days of rumours and speculation, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have announced their engagement.

Naturally, social media was quickly flooded with congratulations and well wishes for the couple, but, being British, there was an even more pressing issue.

Do we get a day off or nah?

Although much isn't known about when the upcoming wedding will be, given that it was only announced an hour ago, the Palace confirmed that the wedding will take place in spring 2018, so pretty soon.

When Prince William married Kate on Friday 29 April 2011, then-Prime Minister David Cameron announced the day as a public holiday so that people could go out and celebrate. It worked out perfectly, because the Monday after it was already a public holiday (it was the early May bank holiday) so we all got a four-day weekend.

Now, far be it from me to dictate when the fifth-in-the-line to the throne gets wed, but wouldn't it be good if he followed suit? And gave us all a lovely four-day weekend over Easter of the May bank holidays?

And as he's marrying an American - Meghan was born in LA - surely it's only fair our pals across the pond get an extra day off, too, right?
