The royal wedding is looming – and a soldier from Darley Dale is preparing for his important role on the big day.

Coldstream Guard David Lochrie, 43, will be on the door at Westminster Abbey on April 29.

His role, as security for the event, will be seen by millions during the television streaming.

His parents Veronica and John Lochrie, are looking forward to seeing him on television.

Veronica said: “We are both really proud of him.

“He is going down the day before the wedding for the dress rehearsal. He said he is looking forward to it.”

David is currently stationed at Kingston upon Thames but visits the area often.
