London - After months of buzz leading up to the big day, the Royal Wedding is almost here and one Indiana family, now living in England, is in the middle of all the hype.

Parker and Edita Sawyers talked with Eyewitness News via Skype from their home in London.

They live and work just minutes from Buckingham Palace.

Parker, a North Central High School and Wabash College graduate, says no matter where you turn, you can hear or see something related to Friday's ceremony.

His wife Edita, an I-U Grad, says even when she's grocery shopping this buzz is all about Will and Kate.

"Everyday and even the waitress, the supermarket, one of the chains, they publish their newsletter specifically dedicated to Will and Kate," Edita said.

The Indiana couple hopes to watch some of the wedding, but they are scheduled to work Friday.

They say there is a group of IU and Purdue alumni that will get together for a viewing party.
