Prince William has been given some advice on kissing by the mother of his former nanny.

Shan Legge-Bourke says: “Always go to sleep with a kiss, even if you have had a row.”

She adds: “They are a very well-grounded couple. They have both done school, gap years, university and jobs and are totally aware of what is going on throughout Wales, the UK and worldwide — contrary to what people perceive.

“They are both compassionate and have a delicious sense of humour. It will be a lovely day.

Shan’s grandson Tom Pettifer will be a page boy at the wedding. Shan’s daughter Tiggy was a huge support to William and Prince Harry after their parents’ wedding broke down.
