Rejected petition Give the UK an extra Bank Holiday for the Royal Wedding in May

Harry & Meghan marry in May 2018. There were Bank Holidays for William & Kate, Charles & Diana, and for Anne & Mark. These are huge national occasions and many people want to join in the celebrations, or to watch on TV. And, lets face it, we could do with a good "Knees up".
