Stephanie Beacham Backs 'Princess' Catherine
The former 'Dynasty' actress is one of many people who hoped the duchess would be given the official title of princess on the occasion of her marriage to Britain's Prince William in April last year, and thinks it would be less confusing, particularly for non English people, if she were.
She told Britain's OK! magazine: "I think she's being beautifully groomed up, she seems to have the mettle to do the job, and I totally agree with my friend Joan [Collins]. What's this Cambridge business? It confuses people. Princess Catherine, let's have it. She's captured hearts hasn't she?"
Joan - who played Stephanie's arch rival in 'Dynasty' - has previously given her thoughts on why she thinks Catherine should be a princess.
She said: "I very much like Catherine. What do we call her now? The Duchess of Cambridge sounds so old! Can't we just call her Princess Catherine as they do in America? She has not put a foot wrong.
"She even looks like a princess. I think Prince William has done a great job and taught her what to expect. She is flawless in everything, her clothes, her smile, her attitude."
