Prime Minister David Cameron has told councils to remove the red tape for royal wedding street parties as he revealed that he will be hosting his own celebrations at Downing Street.
Some UK residents have found that bureaucracy has prevented them from being able to hold their own parties for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on April 29.
Addressing the issue, the PM said that people should go ahead and hold their own.
He said that the day was a “chance for all of us to come together and celebrate the great things about our country.”
“We have done our bit by ripping up red tape and many councils have done the same.”
Writing in The Sun Cameron said: “To those councils that are asking small groups of neighbours for licences, insurance and other bureaucracy my message is clear: Don’t interfere, don’t get in the way and don’t make problems where there are none.
“Let people get on and have fun.
“And my message to everyone who wants to have a street party is: I’m having one and I want you to go ahead and have one too.
“The truth is that this is a great chance for communities to come together and celebrate.
“So go on, bring out the bunting and let’s make this a day to remember for everyone.”
