Limited edition of Love Hearts sweets to commemorate the royal wedding of Britain's Prince William and Kate Middleton by traditional confectionery Swizzels Matlow are pictured at the factory in New Mills, Derbyshire, central England, on March 31, 2011. Founded in 1928, Swizzels Matlow is the UKs largest family-owned independent sugar confectionery business and one of the few confectionery companies to still manufacture sweets in the UK. Britain's Prince William, the second in line to the throne, and Kate Middleton announced their engagement in November 2010 after a seven-year romance that began at university. The wedding, at Westminster Abbey on April 29 in London, is set to be Britain's biggest royal wedding since William's parents, Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, married in 1981. April 29 has been made a public holiday throughout the kingdom.
