The first royal fan has reserved himself a spot outside London's Westminster Abbey to watch the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

John Loughrey, 56, has set up camp on the pavement across the road from the famous abbey, equipped only with a sleeping bag and two Union Jack carrier bags, and intends to remain there all week to beat the tens of thousands of spectators expected and ensure a good view of the event on Friday.

Loughrey, a long-time fan of Prince William's late mother Diana, said, "Diana would be very proud of her son Prince William and Catherine's marriage and Prince Harry as best man... She will be with them in spirit in Westminster Abbey on their special day and always."
