At 11am on Friday 29th April 2011 the wedding of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton will take place. The venue is the thousand year old Westminster Abbey or to use its formal name - the Collegiate Church of St. Peter, Westminster. The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Dean of Westminster, and the Bishop of London will perform the ceremony together at the magnificent cathedral.
Afterwards, a grand procession featuring the newly married couple in the beautiful 1902 State Landau will wind through London on its way to Buckingham Palace.
A British Royal Wedding is an occasion like no other. Traditional British pageantry is a sight to behold. The day has been declared a public holiday in the UK and many people here and indeed all across the commonwealth will be looking forward to enjoying watching the ceremony on the television.
Since their engagement, announced in November 2010 William and Kate as they are affectionately referred to by the public, have been busy making their own wedding plans. Although a national occasion it's expected that the couple will bring elements of their individual personalities to the marriage celebrations.
We have no doubt that the wedding will be everything the British public expects; a superb blend of pomp, pageantry and tradition and this most modern Royal Wedding is sure to be an unforgettable occasion.
To celebrate the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton Guernsey Post are producing an exclusive set of two miniature sheets. Purchased together the pair will feature a beautiful photographic image of William and Kate's engagement along with a stunning shot of the couple on their wedding day.
We're also thrilled to offer collectors a fabulous commemorative Royal Wedding folder which includes a complete set of all the Royal Wedding stamps produced by Guernsey Post.
