Gibraltar's Chief Minister, Peter Caruana, has finally announced that Friday, April 29, 2011, would be a one-off public holiday in Gibraltar to celebrate the marriage of Britain's heir to the throne, Prince William.

Last month (2010-12-01), the Gibraltar opposition (GSLP/Liberals) had called on the GSD Government to make April 29th, 2011, a one-off bank/public holiday to coincide with the 2011 wedding of Prince William.

Currently, the UK (2010-11-23), Scotland (2010-11-24), the Isle of Man (2010-11-26), and the Cayman Islands (2010-12-21), have already announced that April 29, 2011, would be a one-off public holiday.

In addition, Jersey (2010-11-22), Guernsey and Alderney (2010-12-02), the Falkland Islands (2010-12-04), and the Turks and Caicos (2010-12-21), are currently considering declaring Friday, April 29, 2011, as a one-off public holiday.
