After all… even royal kids are kids. Ahead of Pippa Middleton’s upcoming wedding to James Matthews, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton expressed one primary concern this week leading up to the highly-anticipated nuptials.

Princess Kate is confirmed to attend the wedding at St Marks Church in Englefield with husband Prince William and their two adorable children. Kensington Palace confirmed that 4-year-old Prince George will be a page boy, while 2-year-old Princess Charlotte will serve as a bridesmaid in the society wedding.

As the bride and groom are completing the finishing touches this week, the Duchess expressed to a Buckingham Palace garden party attendee on Tuesday, May 16, that she’s excited but a little nervous for the event.

“She said that they were all really looking forward to her sister’s wedding at the weekend, but she was a bit worried about how her children might behave,” the attendee Andrew Bates told reporters. “She said she was hopeful that they would be good but you never know at that age.”

The Middleton household has seen a flurry of activity especially within the last week. It was revealed earlier this week that a huge glass structure estimated at $100,000 had been erected on the family’s 188-acre property in Bucklebury.

The bride is reportedly wearing Giles Deacon, who’s gone in and out of her home with garment bags since last year’s engagement.
