Tessa Virtue gushes about Kate Middleton: ‘She’s perfect’

With her shiny brown tresses and dazzling smile, it’s been said that Tessa Virtue bears an uncanny resemblance to Kate Middleton.

But just like the rest of the royal's adoring public, Canada’s ice princess has revealed that she, too, is in awe of the Duchess’ stunning good looks.

In an interview with Global’s Morning Show, the Olympic medalist sat down with her longtime figure skating partner, Scott Moir, and spoke out about Prince George’s stylish mom.

When asked about reports that Kate may be undergoing a “regal makeover,” Tessa was quick to point out that the beloved British royal is perfect just the way she is.

“Kate’s such a role model … she’s so approachable. That’s what’s so amazing about her,” she said. “There’s nothing I would change about her. She’s perfect. She’s always so poised and so elegant.”

The skating duo have had their brushes with royalty in the past, attending a state dinner with the Queen in Toronto in 2010, and they've even chatted up the royal couple before.

“They’re normal people! How refreshing,” she previously told HELLO! Canada on meeting Prince William and Kate in person. “You just felt like they hadall the time in the world to chat with you. It was really special.”
