The wedding of HRH Prince William of Wales to Catherine Middleton will take place on April 29, 2011 at Westminster Abbey. It will be declared a public holiday throughout the United Kingdom and will likely be broadcast via television across the world.
St. James Palace has confirmed that the wedding ceremony shall begin at 11:00 AM, and that the bride will arrive at the abbey by car rather than carriage, which is the traditional transportation of royal brides.
Certain newspapers have reported that sources are claiming Prince William's reluctance to accept a royal dukedom from the Queen. If this does happen and the prince decides to remain simply Prince William of Wales, this would officially make his wife Princess William of Wales rather than Princess Catherine, which many people will no doubt refer to her as, although it is incorrect as Princess Catherine would infer that she were a princess by birth and not just by marriage.
