Royal fans count down the days

On Friday, April 29, 2011, Prince William and Kate Middleton get married, and the whole world will be watching.

Some people are taking this wedding more seriously than others. Allison Lackey from Chicago is a big fan of the royal couple, and she has a lot of memorabilia to prove it, including magazines, towels and bottle openers.

Allison joined us in our ABC7 studio to show us her items related to the British monarchy, and she even wore a duplicate of Middleton's wedding ring and a dress that resembled the one Middleton wore when she and Prince William announced their engagement.

Allison's obsession with the Royal couple actually landed her on the BBC America show called "Royally Mad," where she and other fans flew to London to get the Royal treatment. Check your local listings to watch the show, or head to the channel finder on the BBC America web site

Of course, Allison and everybody else can watch the Royal wedding live on ABC7 and on Friday, April 29.
