The Falkland Islands government has declared that Friday, April 29, 2011, the date of the upcoming UK royal wedding, would be a one-off public holiday in the Falkland Islands.
This follows a request, made late last year (2010-12-04), by the Exco, asking the Governor to declare April 29, 2011, the date of the wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton, a one-off public holiday in the Falkland Islands.
Currently, the UK (2010-11-23), Scotland (2010-11-24), the Cayman Islands (2011-02-01), the Isle of Man (2011-01-10), Gibraltar (2011-01-06), Guernsey and Alderney (2011-01-26), and Jersey (2011-01-20), have officially announced that Friday, April 29, 2011, would be a one-off public holiday.
The Turks and Caicos (2010-12-21), have also indicated that they are currently considering declaring Friday, April 29, 2011, as a one-off public holiday, but have, as of yet, not made any official announcement.
