Kate Middleton Feels the Royal Pressure

Reports are surfacing that Kate Middleton is having counseling to deal with the mounting pressures of becoming royalty. INSIDE EDITION has the story.

The ring's the thing! A $39 knockoff of the ring that Prince William gave Kate Middleton went on sale over the weekend on QVC, and nearly 30,000 were sold!

"We wanted as close a replica as we could," said QVC.

The QVC ring looks just like Kate's 18-carat sapphire ring, surrounded by 14 diamonds.

Meanwhile, there are reports out of England that the pressure of becoming a Princess bride is already getting to Kate.

The London Daily Mail quotes a source close to the royal family as saying, "Kate is so nervous she is having counseling organized by the royal family to help her."

This is to thwart the problems that plagued Princess Diana, who felt depressed and isolated within months of her wedding to Prince Charles.

Prince William took time over the weekend to unwind at a soccer game with his buddies.

And Ann Hathaway hosted Saturday Night Live, portraying Kate Middleton as she meets her future in-laws. In the spoof, the Queen and her husband turn out to be quite rude and crude.

Chicago blogger Ana Fernatt was a classmate and friend of the couple when they were students at St. Andrews University where they met. She'll never forget bumping into William in a dormitory hallway. He was wearing nothing but a towel around his waist!

Fernatt told INSIDE EDITION, "Seeing the Prince like that sticks in your mind. He has an incredible upper body I must say."

INSIDE EDITION's Megan Alexander asked Fernat, "Did girls throw themselves at Prince William?"

"You can't deny it's every girl's dream is to beocme a Princess. Not only is he attrtactive, he also comes with a lot of power," said Fernatt.
