Prince William & Kate Middleton Wedding Will Cost the Economy

 - Nov 25, 2010
If there's anything the royal family knows how to do, it's throw a lavish wedding, such as the soon-to-come Prince William & Kate Middleton wedding. The long awaited engagement has been a buzz among the English (and the world) population, but the date has officially been set for April 29, 2011.

The extravagant spring wedding will be held at the historical Westminster Abbey with approximately 2,200 people. It is estimated that the wedding will cost the British economy £5 billion, since businesses will have to shut down for consecutive four-day weekends for the event.
