Special Callsigns for Royal Wedding

Prince William and his bride-to-be,
Catherine Middleton.
If you work any stations in the United Kingdom with GR, MR or 2R prefixes during late April or early May, then you'll be part of the celebration of the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. The special callsign prefixes were authorized by the British government, at the request of the Radio Society of Great Britain, to be used between April 29, the date of the royal wedding, and May 9. William is second in line to the British throne, after his father, Prince Charles.
