LONDON (Reuters Life!) - Don't have your head in the clouds thinking of Kate when flying, Britain's most famous pilot Prince William has been told by his godfather.

William, second-in-line to the throne, is a search and rescue helicopter pilot. He will marry long-time girlfriend Kate Middleton on April 29th.

"I did actually mention to him in my letter to him when he got engaged -- because I went through that experience myself -- that it's quite dangerous to fly a helicopter when you're in love because you have to concentrate on keeping that machine in the air.

"So I said: 'Be careful, concentrate on that helicopter now and think of Catherine later on'," the former king of Greece Constantine told the BBC in an interview.
