"I was telling everyone I did the rehearsal the other day and my knees started tapping quite nervously," William, taking a brief break from his work as a rescue helicopter pilot, told reporters at the Royal Air Force base in North Wales – where he also greeted his grandparents, Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh.
"It's quite a daunting prospect," William admitted about getting married later this month, "but very exciting, and I'm thoroughly looking forward to it but there's still a lot of planning to be done in the last four weeks."
One thing of which he is already proud: how he and brother Prince Harry kept last weekend's bachelor party away from prying eyes.
"It's quite good news always to outfox the media, but it was a military operation and my brother and I are very proud of how it went," William, 28, told the BBC.
