    David Cameron has suggested that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding should be made a Bank Holiday weekend, to allow Britain a ‘day of national celebration’.

    Speaking to the Commons Liason Committee, the Prime Minister commented last night: ‘If it’s in the week it would be a very good idea to have a bank holiday. And even if it’s at the weekend there would be a great temptation to have a bank holiday.’

    A spokesperson from St James’s Palace confirmed that the Prince and his bride-to-be supported the suggestion, stating: ‘Prince William and Catherine Middleton are grateful for the Prime Minister’s comments, they also support the idea.’

    It is rumoured that a date for the wedding could be confirmed by the end of today, with bookmakers naming May as the odds-on favourite.
