Most would agree that Meghan Markle looked stunning when she tied the knot with Prince Harry on Saturday but one famous face was not impressed.

Popstar Katy Perry has admitted she thought the white silk gown, designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy, didn’t look like it fitted the Suits actress properly.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she said: “I would have done one more fitting.”

The American Idol judge went on to say that she preferred the lace Alexander McQueen dress Kate Middleton chose for her 2011 wedding to Prince Willliam.

“Kate won!” the Roar singer declared.

She then added to soften the blow that she admires Meghan, 36, and is delighted she’s found her prince.

“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 efforts.

“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 newly titled Duchess of Sussex’s dress had been a closely kept secret until the big day with various designers from Victoria Beckham to Ralph & Russo tipped to be working with her on it.

British designer Clare was announced as the brains behind the beautiful gown on Saturday, and she greeted Meghan on the steps of St George’s Chapel on Saturday to ensure any crumples from her car ride to Windsor were eased out.
