Spain May 14 Public Holiday Ruled-Out

Posted: Saturday, May 12, 2012

The Spanish Royal Palace has confirmed that no official public holiday would be given on May 14, the upcoming 50th wedding anniversary of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain.

The aforementioned clarification seems to have been deemed necessary as recent royal weddings have often been declared one-off non-working public holidays; Bhutan (2011-09-20), Monaco (2010-12-23) and the UK (2010-11-23) not to mention the royal diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the throne which generated an additional non-working public holiday in the UK (2009-12-27), the Isle of Man (2010-09-10), Jersey (2010-09-29), the Cayman Islands (2011-08-31), Guernsey (2011-07-29), the Falkland Islands (2011-10-09), Gibraltar (2011-10-19), the Australian state of Queensland (2011-11-05), Alderney (2011-11-17), and the Turks and Caicos (2012-03-27).
