Are you excited for the royal wedding and planning a celebration?

Well Bucks County Council want to make it easier than ever for people to celebrate in style with a street party.

On Saturday, 19 May 2018 HRH Prince Harry will marry US actress Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle in our neighbouring county of Berkshire.

The council has previously charged a small fee for residents looking to host a street party - but this time all fees have been waived.

If you would like to close your street in order to host a party to celebrate the wedding, you can do so for free ā€“ but you must notify Buckinghamshire County Council by the 19 April 2018 to do so.

County councillor Mark Shaw, deputy leader and cabinet member for transportation said ā€œI hope lots of people will take advantage of this opportunity to commemorate the big day!ā€
