Rejected petition Declare a Bank Holiday to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan

It's wonderful news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now engaged.

We ask that a Bank Holiday be declared in celebration of this happy event. After all, Harry's mother, father and brother all received the same honour for their own weddings and it would be inconsistent to leave him out.
