Dear Michael Francis Middleton, and Carole Elizabeth Middleton (née Goldsmith);
Please find attached an invoice to compensate myself for the loss of earnings for Friday 29 April 2011; I like other people in this country am a contractor, this means that as someone who is unsalaried I get paid by the hour.
On Friday 29th your daughter; Catherine Elizabeth “Kate” Middleton is to marry Prince William of Wales (William Arthur Philip Louis) at Westminster Abbey. This day has now been declared as being a Bank Holiday; as such my place of employment will be closed; and I will be required to take the day off as Annual Leave.
My rate is £90 per day; before tax; I look forward to receiving your compensation via BACS.
