Welwyn Garden City family excited about Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding

A MUM and daughter are getting ready to camp on the streets of London overnight to catch a glimpse of Prince William and Kate Middleton on their big day.

Although the date was not set until Tuesday lunchtime for the royal wedding, that didn’t stop one WGC family from getting excited.

Gillian Mills from Homestead Lane was even waiting to hear the date, before she books next year’s summer holiday, so she can be around.

The date has been confirmed as Friday, April 29 and will be held at Westminster Abbey.

Along with nine-year-old daughter Sophie, Gillian plans to take her sleeping bag up to the capital and find the perfect spot to see all the action.
