Mark your calendars: Will and Kate have set a date!

The future king and queen -- who announced their engagement last week, in case you've been hiding under a rock -- will tie the knot in Westminster Abbey on April 29th, Clarence House has confirmed to the BBC.

And while royal officials were mum on Middleton's wedding dress pick (boo!), British Prime Minister David Cameron has deemed the occasion a public holiday (yay!).

Oh, wait -- we're not British. Guess we'll just have to pull a sickie so we can watch at home.

"We know that the world will be watching on April 29, and the couple are very, very keen indeed that the spectacle should be a classic example of what Britain does best," Prince William's private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkington, told the BBC.

"Prince William and Catherine have made it very clear that they wish everybody to be able to enjoy the day with them."

Does that mean our invite's in the mail?

While both Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mother got married at the historic Westminster Abbey, it was also the site of Princess Diana's funeral in 1997.

The news also means we'll have another 157 days of wedding gown frenzy, replica engagement rings, and knockoff dresses. Better make yourselves comfortable!
