British Prime Minister David Cameron has asked his countrymen to shed their inhibitions and "have fun" at the royal wedding of Prince William, saying "Let's make this a day to remember".
"Don't interfere, don't get in the way and don't make problems where there are none. Let people get on and have fun," Cameron wrote Monday in a special column for The Sun.
"And my message to everyone who wants to have a street party is - I'm having one and I want you to go ahead and have one too."
"The truth is that this is a great chance for communities to come together and celebrate. Let's make this a day to remember. For everyone," the prime minister wrote.
William weds Kate Middleton at the Westminster Abbey April 29.
Cameron will stage a bash at Downing Street with wife Samantha to help put the country in a party mood.
"There are already around 4,000 street parties planned across Britain and there's still time to organise many more. Samantha and I will be holding one in Downing Street and bringing together local people and charities."
"I've got huge respect for Prince William and Catherine Middleton and wish them every happiness," he said.
"But it's also a special day for everyone in Britain. It's a chance for all of us to come together and celebrate the great things about our country."
"There are lots of ways to do this, and we've got a fantastic tradition in Britain of celebrating these big national occasions."
"This wedding should be just as exciting an occasion for people across Britain to get together - and one great way of doing that is by holding a street party."
