Prince William's royal wedding nerves


Prince William may be a highly-trained professional helicopter pilot, but he has been talking about how the prospect of his wedding in just four weeks makes him shake with nerves.

In the run-up to the big day, the prince is continuing his work as an RAF search and rescue pilot, a job he describes as “fantastic.”

He covers the area around North Wales and said the job is both important and rewarding. But it is clear his wedding is also on his mind.

When asked if there is any aspect of the ceremony keeping him awake at night, he said that during rehearsals his knees “started going and tapping quite nervously.”

On Friday the prince was visited by his grandparents, the Queen and Prince Philip, at his base at RAF Anglessey.

He chatted while showing them round a helicopter and giving them a tour of the base.

It seems that for him the job comes first, but it is safe to speculate that they will have talked about the royal wedding coming up on April 29.
