Well, not really. Their lives couldn’t be any more different to ours, but every now and then the masks slips and we remember that they’re human too.

Cast your mind back to 2011 and the royal wedding. Prince William, the son of the people’s princess Diana, was marrying lovely Kate, a ‘commoner’, in the biggest royal bash for years.

It was a big day, not only in their own lives but for the monarchy as a whole and it turns out poor William got a dose of nerves.

Duncan Larcombe, a former royal editor at The Sun, was there on the day six years ago and has revealed that the prince had to step out to settle his nerves before his bride made her entrance.

“Before Kate arrived, William went to compose himself with Harry in a room just off Poet’s Corner (an area in Westminster Abbey),” he told Country Living.

“We were sat near there so they both walked straight past us and William looked absolutely terrified. They came out afterwards and gave a deep breath.”

Aside from that moment, Larcombe says the wedding was unlike any other he’d ever been at.

“It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. You know when you’re there that you’re watching history unfold in front of your eyes.

“If you like people watching there’s probably nothing better than a royal wedding. There isn’t a room that has that many famous and royal people all under one roof.”
