According to the insider, the father-of-two won't share the family the speech he plans to give on July 1, and he's also "refusing to take part in meetings or dress rehearsals."

"He seems to want to just wing it. To just turn up and see what happens," the insider noted. "They don’t even know what he is planning to wear."

"William is anxious for everything to be perfect. Not only will be to standing there as the future of the monarchy without The Queen, his father Prince Charles, or his wife and children, he will be standing there honoring his mum," a second insider explained. "He wants to make his mum proud."
