Jersey's Chief Minister, Terry Le Sueur, has announced that the States of Jersey had finally agreed to make Friday, April 29, 2011, the day of the upcoming Royal wedding, a one-off public holiday in Jersey.
Shortly after the date of Prince William's wedding was announced (2010-11-22), Jersey's Chief Minister, Terry Le Sueur, had said that he would like Jersey to also declare a one-off public holiday on that date. However, as of last week (2011-01-14), the States of Jersey (the government of Jersey) had not yet decided whether to declare Friday, April 29, 2011, as a one-off public holiday.
Currently, the UK (2010-11-23), Scotland (2010-11-24), the Cayman Islands (2010-12-21), the Isle of Man (2011-01-10), and Gibraltar (2011-01-06), have announced that Friday, April 29, 2011, would be a one-off public holiday, while Guernsey and Alderney (2010-12-02), the Falkland Islands (2010-12-04), and the Turks and Caicos (2010-12-21), have indicated that they are currently considering declaring Friday, April 29, 2011, as a one-off public holiday.
The States of Guernsey are expected to debate next week, whether to follow the example of Jersey.
