With just a week until Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding, royal watchers are saying there are signs of stress.

On Friday morning, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the man who will marry the couple, had some startling words. Prince William and Middleton confided in him their fears about the pressure public scrutiny will put on their marriage.

Since the euphoria of the engagement announcement in November, Middleton has made four official appearances, and with each one, she's gotten thinner.

"I would imagine, she probably can't eat. I'd be amazed if she can sleep," said Duncan Larcombe, an ABC News contributor.

There will be 1,900 people inside London's Westminster Abbey on April 29 for the wedding.

The couple will break with tradition in their vows. Middleton will says she will "love, honor and keep her husband," but she will not obey.

The queen has unveiled the royal consent form, which OKs the couple to tie the knot.

ABC7 anchors David Ono and Michelle Tuzee are traveling to London for the royal wedding. Look for their live reports beginning next week on Eyewitness News.
