Britain’s Prince William will marry his long-term girlfriend Kate Middleton at London's Westminster Abbey next August, according to sources.
According to sources, royal aides made ‘discreet overtures’ to senior managers at the Abbey, one of London's most famous landmarks, to hold a wedding there on the second weekend in August next year.
Friends of the couple said a wedding next August would be ‘entirely possible,’ reports the Daily Mail.The timing would allow Middleton to get acquainted with her role as princess before the Queen's diamond jubilee celebrations and the London Olympics in 2012, the friends said.
Westminster Abbey would be an emotionally symbolic place for Prince William's wedding - his mother Princess Diana's funeral service took place there in 1997.
