LONDON – Theresa May has ruled out making the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a national holiday, with her spokesman saying there is “no precedent” for the public to have a day off work.
A spokesperson for the prime minister cited the precendent of the weddings of Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, neither of which were a special bank holiday.
However Number 10 coud not explain why the wedding of Princess Anne was made a national holiday in 1973. When asked again, May’s spokesman repeated only that there were “no plans” for a day off when Harry and Meghan get married next spring.
