There’s a little bit of a royalist in everyone.

Even the Hollywood elite.

So it’s no surprise that Reese Witherspoon had a fangirl moment when she had a chance to meet Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine.

When Catherine and Prince William took their first trip to the United States as a married couple in 2011, they attended the Launch of Tusk Trust’s US Patron’s Circle in California where they met the Big Little Lies actress.

“The scream that issued from my lips upon receiving [the invitation] — you would have thought I was going to die,” the Oscar winner wrote in an excerpt from her new book, Whiskey in a Teacup. “I wake up early, mind you, but on that day I was up at 04:00 doing my hair. That’s early, even for me. ‘I’ve never seen you this excited,’ my husband said. He wasn’t kidding.”

Reese continued by saying, “She was just lovely and warm, elegant and composed. She also told a joke, and I immediately fell under her spell. She’s just as magnificent as she seems to be. She’s a very compassionate, socially conscious, deeply caring person.”

We’re sure Catherine was equally charmed.
