      Royal superfans have already begun camping out to get a prime spot on The Mall for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee despite the start of the celebrations with Trooping the Colour not taking place for another two days.<br>John Loughrey and Maria Scott, who are often seen at the front of crowds at major royal events, waved for the cameras from their tents this morning as anticipation builds ahead of the four-day bank holiday weekend.<br>Mr Loughrey, 67, who lives in South London, earned a reputation as Princess Diana’s number one fan after quitting his job working in a kitchen so he could attend every court session of the inquest into her death in 2008.

      He spent days on a bench outside the hospital where Prince George was born in 2013 and did it again for Princess Charlotte in 2015 and Prince Louis in 2018. He also attends Westminster Abbey every week to say a prayer for Diana.<br>Mr Loughery told MailOnline today that he has attended countless royal events, adding: ‘The Queen’s 90th birthday was the most special, and what would have been Diana’s 60th.

      Prince William was in the Palace with his kids and he came out and spoke to us, saying this is an unofficial visit and I am touched by what you are doing for my mother. I said I always pray for your mother and I will light a candle in Westminster Abbey.'<br>Mr Loughery – who first fell in love with the monarchy as a child in the 1960s – also said he has met the Queen twice, once at Windsor Castle when he gave her a rose for each member of her family.

      He added: ‘She goes out of her way to meet people. I said to Her Majesty, ‘we are very proud of you and you are always in our hearts’. She has seen so much history. She has had a long life, always been there for the Commonwealth and done her duty.'<br>Ms Scott, 51, who is from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, also attended the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in London for the births of Prince William and Kate’s three children, and is often seen at royal events with her daughter Amy, 20. <br>Ms Scott said she turned up at 1.30am, slot gacor hari ini adding: ‘The police know us because we always come out at royal events.

      They have no problems with us doing it. We were going to stay for the Trooping of the Colour and then we are going to spend the night at St Paul’s and then we will head back down for the concert and pageant on Sunday. When the rain goes away we normally have lots of people coming by to chat to us. They think it’s wonderful how patriotic we are and it’s wonderful meeting people from so many different countries.

      I think the Queen is amazing. She has been very strong over the years and through her life. She is the backbone of the country.'<br>Another royal fan, Sky London, 61, said: ‘I am very excited about it. She has supported the people with what they want and not what she wants and that’s why she is well liked worldwide.

      We were there when George and Louis were born, when Harry was married, and we are just total fans of the Royal Family. What can be said against them? I’ve seen people in other cities saying she will be the last monarch. She wasn’t the first and she won’t be the last.'<br>The devoted royalists, who are braving heavy rain showers to enjoy every moment of the historic occasion, arrived as a team and said they will take turns fetching food from local shops during their stay in the city. <br>Other fans even travelled from the US – with Donna Werner, 70, arriving from Connecticut on Saturday before setting up a tent on The Mall with her British friend Mary-Jane Willows, 69, from Penzance, Cornwall.<br>Mrs Werner, a retired housewife, told MailOnline: ‘It’s to show the Queen some love and respect for all she has done.

      I think that after 70 years of working in one job she should be honoured. She has done a wonderful job.'<br>The friends will watch the procession and hope to see Prince George on the balcony. Mrs Werner said the Royal Family is well loved in the US, adding: ‘They love the pomp and the castles, they love reading about it.'<br>And Ms Willows said she was there out of ‘loyalty to the Queen’, adding: ‘She has gone 70 years of her life and she deserves us here to say thank you and for us to give our love, respect and gratitude for all that she has done.'<br>Also today, it emerged that the Palace has asked Pageant planners to avoid ‘over-glorifying or over-egging’ the Queen and her family or involving anything that seems ‘too aggrandising’, in consideration of anti-royalists.<br>Director David Zolkwer said the pageant was intended to ‘not take itself quite so seriously’ and that republicans would be considered alongside ‘strident royalists’ amid concerns ‘the word pageant brings a lot of baggage’.<br>He said royal aides wanted to avoid making the day just about the Queen, telling the Radio Times: ‘The feedback we’re getting is that if we’re over-glorifying, or over-egging, or if anything looks too aggrandising – that’s what they’re not comfortable with.

      What they’re doing is ensuring that every reference to the Queen is appropriate.'<br>A royal source confirmed to the Daily Telegraph that this was the intention, saying that the Queen and other members of the Royal Family wanted to ensure the Jubilee was a chance for the monarch to ‘thank the public’.<br>Meanwhile the Queen’s Gold State Coach was seen on the streets of  for the first time in 20 years today as members of the Armed Forces carried out a final rehearsal for the  Pageant early this morning.<br> Royal superfans John Loughrey and Maria Scott, who are often seen at the front of crowds at major royal events, waved for the cameras from their tents on The Mall in London today as anticipation builds ahead of the four-day bank holiday weekend<br> John Loughrey poses with a carboard cut-out of the Queen on The Mall in London today ahead of the four-day weekend<br> more videos

      The coach is 23 feet long and 12 feet tall, and weighs four tons.
