Pre-wedding nerves admitted by prince

5:28 am on 2 April 2011

Four weeks before his wedding to Kate Middleton, Prince William has admitted to feeling nervous.

The Prince says the wedding on 29 April at Westminster Abbey is a daunting prospect, but very exciting, though there is much planning still to do. In comments broadcast on Friday, he said:

"I was telling everyone I did the rehearsal the other day and my knees started tapping quite nervously."

William, 28, also said he had managed to "outfox the media" and have a stag party away from the prying eyes of the press.

He said he and his younger brother Harry had pulled off an undercover operation for the do.

Williams was interviewed at an RAF base in north Wales where he is stationed as a search and rescue helicopter pilot.

Prince Harry said on Thursday that he never thought that William would take the plunge and marry Ms Middleton.
