Details of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s royal wedding have been announced and if you can’t wait to know the route that the wedding procession will take to Westminster Abbey then read on.

The royal wedding plans were released today by Clarence House and those hungry for more information on William and Kate’s nuptials (as opposed to anyone just happy to be getting a day off work) will be licking their lips in anticipation.

Firstly, Prince William and Kate Middleton have been true to their word and will rein in spending so that the royal wedding doesn’t appear too peasant-infuriatingly lavish. Kate will be driven to Westminster Abbey – where the royal wedding will take place – in a car rather than a glass carriage.

The wedding service will take place at 11am on April 29 and, as expected, Prince William and Kate Middleton will be married by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The couple will then process to Buckingham Palace in a horse-drawn carriage along the traditional route which includes Parliament Square, Whitehall, Horse Guards Parade and The Mall.

A Buckingham Palace wedding reception knees-up will be put on for William and Kate’s “official and private” guests and will be paid for by the Queen and the Middleton family.

Once the oldies have gone to bed, Prince Charles will host a private dinner followed by dancing for the royal couple’s close friends and family.

If none of this is of any interest to you then perhaps the proposed free concert in Hyde Park will be more up your alley.

Either way, you’ve got the day off work so that’s something to love about the royal wedding anyway.
