Teen stages hunger strike for Wills & Kate's wedding

A poor Mexican teenager who went on a hunger strike in an attempt to get to the Royal wedding has had her dream come true after receiving a plane ticket.
19-year-old Estibalis Chavis, spent 16 days outside the British Embassy in Mexico City in the hope her perseverance would get her invited to the ceremony in London.
She even spent her time on the street painting a canvas portrait of Kate and William.
She plans to give the picture to the couple as she waits outside Westminster Abbey.

Many passers-by laughed at her lonely protest camp - some even called her the "crazy lady of the embassy".
But one man was touched by her attempt, and has put up the airfare for her.
