Victoria Beckham Weighs In On Meghan Markle's Royal Wedding Gown




 

Victoria Beckham scored a coveted invitation to sit in the front row at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding in Windsor, England, last weekend ― which gave her the perfect vantage point to check out Markle's dress.

"I thought she looked absolutely beautiful," Beckham said in an interview with the Evening Standard published Wednesday.

"It really suited her," she said of Markle's Givenchy gown designed by Clare Waight Keller. "I thought it was perfect for her. And Harry looked great."

"It was such a beautiful, incredible wedding," she added. "It was just the best day. They looked so happy, and everybody was just so happy for them. Meghan seems like a genuinely lovely woman, who really loves him. It felt very real, very honest."

Beckham, who is herself a fashion designer, wore a navy dress from her forthcoming pre-spring/summer 2019 collection.

Beckham also wore navy to Prince William's 2011 nuptials to Kate Middleton, but she said she enjoyed dressing for this wedding more.

"Quite honestly, it was such a relief not to be hugely pregnant at this royal wedding that it was a joy to be able to choose anything I wanted to wear," she said.

Beckham's comments about Markle's dress were a bit kinder than Katy Perry's. The "American Idol" host had one little problem with the gorgeous gown.

"I would have done one more fitting," the singer told "Entertainment Tonight" Sunday. "I'm never not going to tell the truth! One more fitting, but I love you."

Perry added that she thought the Duchess of Cambridge's dress "won," but said she was still supportive of Markle and Harry's nuptials.

"I don't know much about her, but what I've seen or heard ― whether it's been true or false ― everything to me, it sounds amazing," Perry said. "I'm so happy for them. It's amazing what she's doing with all this, [with] her humanitarian efforts."

Prince Harry and Meghan touched down in Sydney on Monday, kicking off a bumper Pacific tour that is the British royals' first major outing abroad as a couple. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in a wet and wintery Australia after a weekend spent celebrating the marriage of their relative Princess Eugenie to a wine merchant. The more than two week official visit will take in multiple stops in Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand -- all parts of the Commonwealth of states formerly colonised by Britain.

Even by Donald Trump's standards it was a puzzling Tweet. More than two days after Princess Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank, the US President took to social media to praise the 'truly beautiful bride' adding, 'she has been through so much and has come out a total winner!' Yet Twitter users were quick to point out that the 9th in line to the throne had so far enjoyed a relatively straightforward and privileged life. British opera singer Melinda Hughes, replied to President Trump asking: "What has she been through? Please enlighten us Brits because we have no idea what you're talking about." Princess Eugenie of York was a truly beautiful bride yesterday. She has been through so much,...
