Royal wedding enthusiasts from across the globe have set up camps near Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and along the procession route, hoping to see Friday’s festivities up close.

The first campers reportedly started claiming their spots near Westminster Abbey — where Prince William and Kate Middleton will become man and wife Friday — on Monday. One royal superfan, John Loughrey, who has been interviewed and photographed by several news organizations, gave his opinion to the Associated Press on what Middleton should wear in this video:

A Canadian woman told the Montreal Gazette she’s camped out near Buckingham Palace to see the couple kiss. Despite the large number of royal wedding haters in Great Britain and beyond, the Daily Mail reports that there are plenty of royal wedding lovers camped out near the Abbey, leaving little room for latecomers.
