Construction gets Royal Wedding fever

Britain has whipped itself into a Royal Wedding frenzy over the last few months and the hype and excitement is only going to increase as we near the big day when Prince William marries Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey.

Construction workers in London are said to be joining in the fun of the Royal Wedding and working along the wedding procession route – they just have to change first.

It was reported last month by Building that builders may be forced to wear ties and commemorative hard hats to celebrate the Royal Wedding.

The Queen is reportedly (according to an “unnamed” palace insider) keen to make builders scrub up and change their appearance so cement-splattered hi-vis jackets don’t spoil photos of the wedding route.

Construction workers on the day will be handed hard hats featuring pictures of William and Kate and a Union flag, and there will be a range of special hammers emblazoned with Kate Middleton’s new royal seal.

This news follows the reports that some construction companies are refusing to let employees have the day off on Friday, which is a bank holiday.
