LONDON (AP) - The royal wedding is still three days away, but it's not too early to stake out the prime viewing spots along the wedding procession route in London.

John Loughrey, who says he's a "super fan" of the late Princess Diana, is already camped out to see Diana's son William and his bride, Kate Middleton. The London man is wearing a shirt that reads, "Diana would be proud."

A 76-year-old woman who camped out for 1981's royal wedding between Charles and Diana is ready to do so again for their son. Guen Murray staked out a spot outside Westminster Abbey with her two daughters this morning.

Streets in London are being sealed off in advance of tomorrow's pre-dawn rehearsal.

Police today have been carefully examining the large temporary media structures that have gone up near the abbey in central London. They'll offer standing room for the thousands of journalists who are expected to cover the wedding.

Police plan to deploy around 5,000 officers for the royal wedding procession, but they're urging members of the public to be on their guard amid fears that Irish or Islamist extremists could target the ceremony.
