Royal engagements tend to be short, and this one will be, too. The wedding date, according to The Telegraph, will be April 29.
Many obstacles presented themselves in choosing a date – religious holidays, political events, weather, and, of course, the couple's preferences. William and Kate reportedly wanted a spring wedding, but March weather can be dreary. What's more, Lent and Easter take up much of April. The Liberal Democrats – the party of Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg – did not want a late April wedding because of concern it will overshadow an early May referendum on the electoral system, the Daily Mail reported. William and Kate have friends getting married in May.
So, late April it is. Parliament will have to deal.
