Christina Hendricks might star in US hit series Mad Men but she loves the very British royals

When you think of curvy Mad Men star Christina Hendricks and who her style icons might be, the British royal family probably wouldn’t be the first thing that springs to mind.

But it turns out that Christina, 40, is an avid royalist and loves to follow the fashion choices of Kate Middleton.

‘I like to see what the Duchess of Cambridge is wearing and what she’s up to,’ the actress reveals.

‘She always looks so good.’

We LOVE the idea of Christina getting inspiration from our very own K-Middy! She’s probably been keeping up with all the royal baby updates too.

Christina‘s fondness for the British royals is perhaps unsurprising as she has some family roots in the UK. Even though she was born in Tennessee, the red-haired star has a dual American and British passport because her dad hailed from Birmingham – who knew?

‘I lived in London during the 90s Brit-pop age,’ she says. ‘I was so into Pulp.

‘There was a club in the West End called the Marquee which had a Brit-pop night. I remember dancing for hours – it was such fun.

‘I met Jarvis Cocker recently and was almost too starstruck to go and say hi!’

It’s not just our royal family and music scene that Christina – who plays office manager Joan Holloway in Mad Men – is attached to. The actress has also got the hots for British actor Ben Chaplin!

‘I’ve been silently crushing on him for years!’ she confesses.

Amazing! So where does Christina shop to indulge her love of all things GB when she’s here?

‘I love Boots. You have all kinds of different items in there that we don’t have in the US,’ the TV star tells You magazine.

‘And Accessorize – it has adorable things.’

Remind us to look out for Christina sourcing K-Middy-inspired goods when we next pop to the high street!

Christina currently stars in the final season of Mad Men, which is showing on Sky Atlantic.
