Jersey's Chief Minister, Terry Le Sueur, has said that he would like Jersey to also declare a one-off public holiday on the date of the upcoming wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Recall that, last week (2010-11-18), UK Prime Minister, David Cameron, said that he would like a one-off public holiday declared on the occasion of the wedding of Prince William, tentatively scheduled for the spring or summer of 2011.

Last summer (2010-09-29), the States of Jersey passed the Public Holidays and Bank Holidays (Jersey) Act 2010 which among other matters, declares Monday, June 4, 2012, as a public holiday instead of the last Monday in May, and Tuesday, June 5, 2012, as a public holiday to commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
