Prince William and Kate to marry in April

The United Kingdom royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton will happen on April 29, 2011, at Westminster Abbey, the royal family said. Watch the couple's first post-engagement interview.

The date is the first Friday after Easter. "The royal family will pay for the wedding, following the precedence set by the marriages of the prince and princess of Wales in 1981 and Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip in 1947," Prince Charles' spokeswoman said in a statement.

The thousand-year-old Westminster Abbey has been the favorite of royal fans, the media, and bookies ever since the couple announced their engagement a week ago.

Middleton was photographed leaving the Abbey last week with her parents, and British newspapers reported they had a private after-hours tour.

    Forty million dollars for this wedding yet the Queen has the nerve to cancel the staff Christmas party. These royal people are idiots. Maybe she will die before April. Serves her right.
    It's totally disgusting in these times that these people would waste 40 million dollars on a wedding! Shame on you William and Kate.
    Nothing Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth do will hide what they did to Diana. These people are evil pathetic arrogant and will pay dearly eventually.

    How about your wife or your daughter or any girl or woman in your family will die before Christmas, how would you feel.

    Spending amount that huge for a wedding deserved them the name calling but wishing somebody to die before a wedding date? Think again and look yourself in the mirror that you may realize that you are twice the devil than them.

    Pay him no mind. Jim obviously needs help. We should pray that his Jesus can fix him.
