This is the same venue that featured the 1947 wedding of then-Princess Elizabeth, William's grandmother the Queen.

Prime Minister David Cameron announced this date will be a public holiday across Great Britain, while palace officials say the Royal Famil will pay for the church service, the music and parties.

The millions of dollars spent on security? That will be footed by the British taxpayers. Can you imagine the ruckus that would break out if anything like that was attempted in America? Yikes.
