London: British Prime Minister David
Cameron seems to have a fascination for the Royals -- as a 14-
year-old, he slept out on a London street just to join Prince
Charles and Diana`s wedding celebrations.
The British PM has claimed that he had travelled to
London for the big occasion in 1981 with Brother Alex, Sister
Tania and pals. They had arrived at 10 AM to secure a close-up
view, and later camped out on the spot with sleeping bags and
flasks of strong tea, `The Sun` reported.
The first-in-line to the British throne and Princess
Diana got married on 29 July 1981. The wedding, which was held
at St Paul`s Cathedral, was televised and watched by a global
audience of over 750 million people.
And, talking about the new Royal engagement of Prince
William and his longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton, both 28,
Cameron said: "I`m sure lots of people will want to celebrate
in lots of different ways. I remember when I was young, when
William`s mother got married; I slept on The Mall that night
and joined the celebrations."
The PM described the atmosphere on the wedding day
of Prince Charles and Diana, who was killed in a car crash in
Paris in 1997, as "brilliant".
In fact, it was Cameron who yesterday broke the news
of William, the second-in-line to the British throne, and Kate
Middleton`s engagement in October to his cabinet colleagues
who he claimed reacted with "a great cheer".
Prince Charles` Clarence House also said that he
was "delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to
Miss Catherine Middleton". It said the couple got engaged last
month during a vacation in Kenya.
