Prince William Admits to Pre-Wedding Nerves as Preparations Ramp Up
More than 2 billion are expected to watch the event on television.
LONDON - With less than a month to go before he marries Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey - and in front of a TV audience that could exceed 2 billion - Prince William has admitted to an a severe case of nerves as the big day approaches.
Speaking in an interview with Sky News, the Prince admitted to a case of the jitters when asked if he felt apprehensive about the ceremony April 29, which will be a national holiday in Britain, and laughed when admitting he had suffered sleepless nights over "the whole thing."
"I did the rehearsals the other day and my knees started going, tapping quite nervously, so it's still quite a daunting prospect," he said.
"But it's also very exciting and I'm thoroughly looking forward to it, though there's still a lot of planning to be done in the last four weeks."
Meanwhile, outside Westminster Abbey in London construction has begun on a 24-ton broadcast platform expected to be home to more than thirty camera crews and dozens of press photographers from around the world.
An even bigger temporary media village with mini-studio facilities is being constructed outside Buckingham Palace and is expected to host around 3,000 media on April 29.
