While many shops are decked out with royal wedding memorabilia (ranging from tea bags to jelly-bean portraits of Kate and Wills) most British workplaces are not providing staff with so much as a Middleton-mouse mat.
Research by Maris Interiors reveals that more than 98% of employers are not doing anything to mark the event. Of the 316 employers that responded to the survey only four are planning to kit out the workplace with Kate and Wills decorations.
Furniture Solutions, however, is one employer that is taking the royal wedding very seriously. The Surrey-based firm has already decked out its offices with bunting and Union Jack flags, and will be giving all 30 of its employees three extra days off in April to celebrate.
Ben Martin, sales director at Furniture Solutions, said: “It is going to be such an amazing day. It is the wedding of our future king. Why would we not celebrate?”
