Kate Middleton Acknowledges Pre-Wedding Jitters
She's one of the most poised brides-to-be, but even Kate Middleton has pre-wedding jitters.
During a visit to northern England on Monday (April 11), a woman asked if she was feeling nervous about her upcoming April 29 nuptials - to which the soon-to-be princess revealed, "Yes, of course I am."
And when another couple wished the bride-to-be "all the best," Kate responded, "Yes, I can't believe it's coming very soon now."
Meanwhile, William has expressed his nervousness, as well. Back in March, he told press, "My knees started going, tapping quite nervously [during rehearsals for the big day]. So it's quite a daunting prospect, but very exciting. And I'm thoroughly looking forward to it, but there's still a lot to be done in the last four weeks."
Meanwhile Kate Middleton is getting sympathy from someone who knows firsthand the pressures of being in the media spotlight, Emma Watson.
The 20-year-old "Harry Potter" star told of the worldwide frenzy surrounding the bride-to-be, "Poor girl, that must be an incredible amount of pressure.I hope she's enjoying it. Must be intense."
Kicking off their week with another publicity gig, Prince William and Kate were spotted opening the Darwen Aldridge Community Academy in Darwen, England yesterday (April 11).
The soon-to-be-marrieds were all smiles as they chatted with the public on their final engagement before tying the knot.
According to founder Rod Aldridge, the academy will implement a plan to place enterprise at the heart of secondary education in five schools around the UK.
He explained, "It's about getting young people to think differently about what's possible, giving them a choice between work, university and starting a business."
And though she's going to be an official British Royal in a matter of weeks, Kate Middleton has thankfully avoided too many comparisons to her soon-to-be-hubby's late mother Princess Diana.
According to Max Clifford, a prominent PR agent, Miss Middleton bares little resemblance to Diana overall.
"As a PR person, which is what I have been for 45 years, I would say Princess Diana was a one-off. She (Diana) became just about the biggest star in the world."
"She became far more popular all over the world than the royal family. I think Kate's going to be far more controlled, she's going to be far more part of William."
"Kate the individual I don't believe will receive a fraction of the coverage that Diana got worldwide and in many ways it's going to be a lot easier for her because the palace and all those around will have learned from what happened with Diana. They will be very, very guarded to make sure that doesn't happen again."
