Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally announced their engagement, with Kensington Palace confirming their royal wedding will take place in spring 2018. The Prince proposed to the actor best known for TV legal drama Suits, in early November.
You all know the drill by now. From now until the day of the wedding every detail of the ceremony will be the subject of intense speculation. When exactly will it take place? What flowers will be chosen? Will Prince Philip make it?
Naturally the world has been reacting to the big news, with thousands taking to Twitter to offer their congratulations, share what they think about the engagement and, obviously, crack some jokes.
The only thing the British public loves more than some royal pomp is a day off work, especially if it does not eat into their meagre holiday allowance. So, naturally, attention instantly turned to whether or not we would be getting a bank holiday on the day of the wedding.
