Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge is reportedly growing more nervous as her due date approaches and is using music to calm her jitters.

Catherine Middleton and her husband Prince William married in April 2011 and are expecting their first child together this summer.

According to America’s OK! magazine, she is feeling ill at the thought of the labour.

“Kate says she’s never been so nervous and feels physically sick about giving birth,” a source told the publication.

William has been working as a Search and Rescue pilot for the Royal Air Force. Apparently his time away isn’t helping the issue.

“To make matters worse, Prince William is still working and isn’t around to comfort her. She’s a real mess,” the source said.

“He’s expecting a phone call and a frantic dash from work when Kate goes into labour. He knows Kate’s having a tough time right now and hates not being there to support her.”

Catherine had a rough start to her pregnancy. She suffered a severe strain of morning sickness called hyperemesis gravidarum.

The brunette is said to be using music to help calm her nerves and has a team of people caring for her every need.

“She’s on her own, surrounded by servants,” a source said, adding, “She’s going a bit stir-crazy sitting around.

“She has been filling her iPod with music she wants playing while she’s in labour. The other day she downloaded some of Bruno Mars, Calvin Harris and Of Monsters and Men.”

Despite her fears Catherine has looked stunning in a recent string of public appearances.

The royal family is reportedly thrilled about welcoming the new arrival.

“Everyone is very excited. Prince Harry says he’s already got the champagne on ice!” the insider said. “Kate and Will can’t believe the baby’s almost here - in a few weeks their lives will change forever.”
