Young girl goes to royal wedding, while rest of family go to Legoland
Summary of story from aolnews, April 18, 2011
A 7-year-old girl from Epsom in England, Hermione Sutton, has scored a golden ticket to the royal wedding – despite not being related to either family.
Hermione suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome, a genetic disease that prevents her from walking or standing for long periods of time but has won a ticket to sit in an area for disabled guests.
“I thought nothing of it, but then lo and behold we got an email saying we’d been selected to go into this special disabled enclosure,” said mum, Helen. “We were absolutely thrilled.”
Mother and daughter are planning on bringing flowers, autograph books and cameras to capture everything.
Hermione’s father, her 4-year-old sister, Tabitha and 9-year-old brother George are not as excited – they have made alternative plans.
“Mike is not bothered by the whole thing,” said Helen. “He plans to take everyone else to Legoland, as he is convinced it will be empty that day.”
