Katy Perry is grabbing headlines for many reasons, and one of them is somewhat unexpected.
Royal fans recently unearthed a past interview of the music star where she was raw and honest while talking about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s lavish royal wedding. Katy also brought Kate Middleton into the conversation.
When the former American actress and Harry wed in England — she opted for a simple white gown that was designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy.
Many fashion experts praised Meghan for choosing the elegant creation that let her natural beauty glow, while some critics said Duchess of Sussex could have done better for the special day.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the pop star did not hold back while sharing her thoughts on the royal wedding dress.
Katy made this comment: “I would have done one more fitting. I’m never not going, to tell the truth! One more fitting, but I love you.”
An unprompted Katy compared Meghan’s dress to Kate’s 2011 wedding lace gown designed by Alexander McQueen. Katy said: “Kate, Kate, Kate won. Kate won!”
The “Roar” artist concluded by praising Prince Harry and his wife: “I’m so happy for them, and you know, I don’t know them from Adam, but it’s amazing what she’s doing with all this, her humanitarian effort. You know, the fact that she’s a proud feminist, I love all that. I support her as another woman and love her and wish them both well.”
The interview has intrigued royal fans because it was recently revealed that Meghan and Katy are neighbors.
The new mom and her longtime boyfriend, Orlando Bloom, have purchased a $14.2 million compound next to Meghan and Harry in Montecito in Santa Barbara County, California.
According to Variety, the stunning new property boasts a mansion that includes nine bathrooms, sixteen bedrooms, and a five-car garage.
There is also a separate outdoor guest house, a spa, a gym, an arcade, a games room, and a movie room.
The publication went on to reveal: “The lavish master suite takes up more than half of this level and includes a fireplace with sitting area, dual bathrooms, a huge dressing room, and a separate walk-in closet. There’s also a private patio with mesmerizing views of the estate’s grounds and the Pacific Ocean.”
A royal fan had this reaction to the news: “I loved the comment about Meghan’s dress… I had the same opinion. It looked like a burlap sack.”
This social media user had this to say: “Team Kate for the dress.” Katy was praised for taking a swipe at the philanthropist: “Insult Meghan, then move next door, I like Katy’s style.”
This supporter is hopeful that Meghan and Katy can be friends and bond over their babies. The woman wrote: “Well now, Harry can be buddies with Orlando, and now Archie can be friends with daughter Daisy.”
Some say Katy might have to apologize before things can move forward between the two women.
