Rejected petition A bank holiday for the royal wedding

Most of Europe get more bank holidays than the UK, and it would be lovely for the British public to have street parties and be able to watch the royal wedding, as they did for William and Kate. Harry is a very popular royal and it is an opportunity to bring the country together.
