Prince William and Kate Middleton announcing their engagement

You'd have to be living on another planet not to notice that a certain William and Kate are getting married at the end of April. It's not everyone's cup of tea and your plans for the extra bank holiday may involve ignoring the Royal Wedding altogether, but if you're excited by it and you're looking forward to following events then maybe you can help us with our coverage here on 5 live.

From 10am through till 4pm on Friday 29 April we'll have a special programme looking at the royal nuptials and we'd love you to take part.

You don't need to be an expert on commemorative mugs, wedding dresses or royal protocol but you do need to be....

1) Planning on coming to London to be part of the crowd waiting to catch a glimpse of the couple as they travel to and from Westminster Abbey. If you are then please get in touch as we'd like to talk to you as part of our programme.

2) Celebrating your golden wedding anniversary this year. Have you or your parents been married 50 years on April 29th? If so we want to hear from you.

3) And finally where were you on 29th July 1981? Did you get married on that day as well as Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales? Maybe it was your Mum and Dad's wedding day, if so please email us as we'd love to hear from you.

The best way to contact us if you'd like to get involved is to click here and send us a message.

    Dear Five Live
    It'll be a sober affair for me. I'm training to swim 24 miles in 24 hours (a mile on the hour, every hour) in aid of Help For Heroes, taking place the day after the wedding (30th April) from 9.30am at the Guildford Lido (yes, open air, cold water) - the event is called 2Swim4Life.

    Thinking about it, it continues a family sporting / royal wedding tradition, when Charles & Diana got married, my Dad took my and my brother to the pub to play Snooker rather than watching it. I was 10 then.

    As an expat living in the Philippines. My sincerest wish is that everyone enjoys the Royal Wedding and that Prince William and Kate Middleton go on to enjoy a fuul and fruitful life. I look forward to comprehensive coverage of the celebrations both on TV and Radio. Please remember this occasion is a truly international happening and the Philippinos love nothing better than a Royal Wedding. Thank you in anticipation.
    Sincere regards.

    i for one will not be watching a second of the royal wedding, i shall use the day to do something much better, watch paint dry at the very least. security is going to cost tax payer £9 million alone just for the day - does it still sound great.

    TheSaint you are just the right sort of person the BBC want to hear from. They really want negativity despite how that stuff reads at the top, not people who are going to enjoy the wedding. Where did you get £9million from as the security costs to us taxpayers, and why can't you just say ' well I'm not in to it but probably millions will be, so let them watch it and I'll do something else'?

    I'm not that bothered but will enjoy a day with my family, courtesy of those Royals.

    An affirmation of marriage at the price of perpetuation of dynasty.
