Kate Middleton rarely puts an L.K. Bennett-heeled foot wrong and while it’s won her the nation’s heart she’s also been awarded the approval of Helen Mirren.
In a recent interview, the Oscar winner couldn’t help but stress how much she liked the Duchess of Cambridge.
Speaking to Parade magazine Helen said: ‘[Kate is] exactly what the monarchy needs - an ordinary girl. She's going to be terrific.
‘We're lucky to have such a true person as Kate Middleton.’
And Helen should know. She got a good insight into royal life and with it the pressure and stresses when she portrayed Queen Elizabeth II in the film biopic, The Queen, in 2006.
