Joanne Cowan, from Sydney, tells WHO she flew in on Tuesday morning.
“Within half an hour of them announcing the date we had booked the accommodation and everything was organised,” says the 49 year old.
She’s travelled with her sister Jackie, from Melbourne, and a friend.
Though they have Airbnb accommodation, last night they camped on the Long Walk, an avenue in Windsor’s Great Park, down which Meghan and Harry’s carriage will travel during the post-wedding procession.
“We're not allowed tents so we’ve got sleeping bags, we’ve got blankets, I've got thermals... yeah, we’re going to be fine,” she says. “My friends think we’re crazy.”
Shirley Lord’s loved ones think she’s crazy, too. She arrived from West Wyalong, NSW on Tuesday with her daughter, who is studying history.
They have booked into a hotel but last night camped on the street.
“We’re not moving until the wedding,” she tells WHO.
"We just love the royals. We love them, and we love the history. As soon as it was announced we said, ‘We’ve got to go there.’
“Our family back home thought we were a bit crazy at first but now that we’re here they’re all wishing that they were here with us.”
For Joanne Cowan, the trip has been worth it already.
“This atmosphere beforehand has been amazing,” she says. “I said to my friend earlier that I actually forgot there was a wedding happening! We are going back on Sunday. So we have been here for a week and spent two days travelling.”
