Local student covering royal wedding for USA Today

  • Print

One revved-up Winnipegger is getting ready to tell the world about his royal experience -- and hopes his fellow Canadians will follow along.

Daniel Whaley, 19, is in London today and will camp out near Westminster Abbey tonight to snag a prime spot for the wedding of the decade. Hundreds of thousands of spectators are expected to line the procession route for tomorrow's nuptials.

What's more, Whaley has been tapped as one of six citizen reporters to document his experience for USA Today's website. He will also be tweeting his thoughts, observations and pictures from the event on his Twitter.

The University of Winnipeg student arrived in London earlier this week with a delegation from the Monarchist League of Canada, which he serves as a youth co-ordinator.

The Free Press will be checking in with Whaley after the wedding to get the latest on the on-the-ground festivities.
