Prince William to tie the knot on April 29
London: Britain's royal palace on Wednesday released fresh details of the upcoming wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, announcing that the couple would be married by Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, at a Westminster Abbey service on April 29.

The service, at 11 am on April 29, will be conducted by the dean of the Abbey, the Very Reverend John Hall, St James Palace announced on Wednesday. The Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams will marry the couple and the Right Rev Richard Chartres, the Bishop of London and a longstanding friend of the royal family, will give the address.

The Palace says Miss Middleton will travel to the ceremony by car along the traditional processional route of the Mall, Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall and Parliament Square.

The new-wed couple will return along the same route, but in a carriage procession.

The Queen will host a reception at the Palace, followed by a private dinner and dancing in the evening.

The Royal Wedding will be marked with an official public holiday across the UK.

The couple, both 28, got engaged while on holiday in Kenya in October last year. Prince William proposed with his mother Diana's diamond and sapphire engagement ring.
