Late last night, local time, the Turks and Caicos Advisory Council issued a press release confirming that the Council had officially agreed that Friday, April 29, 2011, would be a one-off public holiday to mark the wedding of HRH Prince William.

On Friday (2011-02-25), local media had begun reporting that The Turks and Caicos government would declare Friday, April 29, 2011, the date of the upcoming UK royal wedding, as a one-off public holiday in the Turks and Caicos.

Recall that, late last year (2010-12-21), the party leader of the Turks and Caicos Peoples Democratic Movement, Doug Parnell, had called on the interim government to declare Friday, April 29, 2011, the date of the upcoming wedding of Prince William, a public holiday in the Turks and Caicos 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), Jersey (2011-01-20), and the Falkland Islands (2011-02-02), have officially announced that Friday, April 29, 2011, would be a one-off public holiday.
