U.S. Embassy staff in the United Kingdom has good cause to cheer the Royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton – they’ll get an extra day off. Personnel in London and in consulates in Belfast and Edinburgh will get Friday off in observance of the wedding, The Washington Post reported.
The day off will make it just a three day week as they also got off Easter Monday, a major British holiday. Nonetheless, embassy spokesman Philip Breeden said emergency consular services will be available, the Post reported.
 
Louis Susman, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom, will attend the wedding along with diplomats from Germany, Israel, Poland and other countries. No foreign heads of state are invited to the wedding, according to the Post.
 
Embassy staff will also get the next Monday off, May Day, another big British holiday, making it a four day weekend. Embassy workers typically get a day off for major holidays in host countries. In China, embassy staff get a break on such holidays as the Lunar New Year and Tomb Sweeping Day, the Post reported.
