Madonna is a royal watcher and fan of Kate's style

Despite coming under fire for her style choices in the past, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge can rest easy knowing that one style icon is a fan.

Madonna has praised Catherine for her wardrobe choices saying that she is able to mix elegance with fun, People magazine reported.

“She is a lovely girl with a great sense of style,” the Material Girl said.

“Her wedding dress by Alexander McQueen was very beautiful.

“I like her choices. She’s elegant and still knows how to have some fun. I’m a fan of her style.”

But the Duchess isn’t the only royal Madge is loving. She is also a fan of Wallis Simpson — the American divorcee for whom King Edward VIII abdicated the throne of England to marry.

“She developed a style and stuck with it whether people were interested or not. I admire her individuality,” she said.

The pop star, who is an avid royal watcher after becoming obsessed with Queen Victoria while living in England in mid 2000s, said she admires the way the Duchess and Prince William are living their married life.

She said she is happy that they get to live a less restricted life.

“The freedom that [Kate] has and the freedom the Royal family has now is nice and is refreshing,” she said.

“It’s too bad that Edward VIII didn’t have that same kind of freedom back in 1937 to make his own decisions and to be the prince of the people, which Prince William is allowed to be. I like how modern they are now.”
