With only 2 days to go until the event of the year, people have already started camp outside Westminster Abbey to make sure they get the best view on Friday. One of these people is a man called Terry Hutt. He has been camped outside the Abbey since Tuesday with his sleeping bag, food supplies and William and Kate memorabilia. Another fan camping outside is John Loughrey. He thinks that the Royal Family “are good for Britain and good for tourism. We have had them for more than 1,000 years and they make a great contribution to the life of this country.”
Over 600,00 people are expected to join Terry and John and line the streets of London, waving the Union Jack and sending their well wishes to the couple. The all important schedule of the day has been released, so if you want to join this what will be happening.
