Attleborough grandmother sets up Westminster Abbey camp for Royal Wedding

An Attleborough pensioner has already taken up her place outside Westminster Abbey, hoping she will gain a prime spot among the crowds for Friday's wedding.

Royal fan Guen Murray, 76, said she was planning to camp until the big day to ensure she gets a glimpse of the happy couple, although she admitted one of her daughters had booked her a hotel room as a 'contingency'.

The grandmother had brought along a bedding roll, suitcase and a large ball of wool to knit to pass away the hours.

Daughters Catherine and Patricia were with her and she was due to be joined by her third daughter Barbara today along with two grandchildren.

Mrs Murray, a former accounts superviser, said she was no newcomer to Royal celebrations having camped outside Buckingham Palace for Prince Charles and Lady Diana's wedding in 1981.

She was also present in London for Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson's wedding and in Windsor for the wedding of Charles and Camilla.

'I grew up during the war and the royal family became very popular, I have a great deal of respect for them,' she said.
