London: The Duchess of Cambridge has for the first time confessed that she lives under constant fear regarding her husband Prince William’s safety.
Kate is scared that William, who is an RAF pilot, will have an accident on one of his helicopter rescue missions.
The 29-year-old confided her disturbing thoughts in a military wife on the couple’s royal tour of Canada.
“I always worry but my job is to support my husband. You should always support your husband,” the Daily Express quoted her as saying.
“I always worry when William goes off on a mission. I find it very difficult. You always fear for them not knowing if something is going to happen and it can be very hard,” she added.
Middleton’s fears are justified considering that just 48 hours after announcing his engagement, the Prince was called out to a dramatic rescue mission 3,000ft up Mount Snowdon in treacherous, stormy weather.
William has already been involved in several daring missions working as a search and rescue pilot at RAF Valley in Anglesey, North Wales.
