Thomas 'TJ' Dooley III, 26, of Mammoth Lakes, California, has revealed how he plans to visit Britain for the royal wedding at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in Berkshire.

But the prince did call him to ask for his permission to propose before they got engaged earlier this month.

'Before then, Dad's work took priority over everything but she became his whole world. She was her daddy's princess'.
