So there you go. We now know that Prince William and Kate Middleton will be married on the 29th April at Westminster Abbey. We also know that the Prince plans it to be a celebration for the whole nation.
There will be street parties, a concert by Britain’s top pop stars, and a bank holiday the weekend after Easter. For many this could mean a break stretching to 11 days if they take time off between the successive four-day bank holiday weekends.
And the cost: well the Queen and Prince Charles will foot most of the £12m bill. However the Middletons have said they will make a sizeable five figure contribution. The country will foot the bill for the security which could amount to £20m.
Whilst the nation is celebrating, I wonder what we will be doing up here at Villas Andrea. Will José organise a street party for us up a La Pedrera, should we decorate the entrance to the estate with bunting and most important, who is going to make the jellies and the sandwiches?
