Since marrying Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge has been admired around the world but now she has won praise from former supermodel Twiggy.
The iconic model revealed she is a huge fan of Kate and believes the royal couple are great ambassadors for the country.
“I think Catherine is wonderful,” she told Fashionista.com. “I’m a great royalist.”
She added: “I think they’re wonderful for the country and I think she’s gorgeous – her and William seem very happy.”
The 64-year-old model went onto to explain she follows the Duchess’ style and believes Kate has won the nation’s hearts.
”I follow what she wears in the magazines just like everyone else, and she dresses beautifully. She’s stylish and classy, and she always comes across as a really nice person – which I think is why she’s captured everyone’s heart. And now they’ve got a baby! Everyone loves a baby.”
Earlier this week, Kate marked a thousand days as the Duchess of Cambridge.
The milestone, which was unlikely officially celebrated by Kate or William, marks a 1000 days since the couple’s beautiful wedding at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011.
Since their nuptials, which was watched by an estimated 1.5billion people around the world, the Duchess has settled into her new life as a royal and as one of the most famous women in the world.
Last July, Kate gave birth to the couple’s first child, Prince George, and in October she looked on proudly as the Royal Family gather for the third-in-line’s christening at St James’s Palace.
This year is set to be another busy year for the Duke and Duchess as in April they will embark on a month-long royal tour taking in Australia and New Zealand.
