Royal watchers have swarmed the first trains from London to Windsor as they headed for the wedding of Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle.

At the station in Slough, the changing point for travelers from London, revelers found signboards reading "All aboard the royal wedding special to Harry & Meghan Central."

Many of those on the standing room only trains were Americans, including Christine Clancy from Virginia.

Clancy says she's "always been a royal fan — not an extreme one — I just love British history and love the royals. I just wanted to be part of the wedding celebration."

Irene Bowdry, a lawyer from California, booked her trip with four friends as soon as the date was announced. She said, "an American in the royal family, isn't that so exciting?"
