'I find the whole royalty system very interesting because we don't have it in the States,' she reveals one of the reasons she takes an interest in the young couple's wedding.
Katy Perry is looking forward to British royal Prince Willam's wedding next year - because the history-obsessed star insists the ceremony will be an unforgettable event. The heir-to-the-throne recently announced plans to wed longterm girlfriend Kate Middleton in April and he's already garnered support from stars including David Beckham, Snoop Dogg, Sir Tom Jones and Westlife.
The "I Kissed a Girl" hitmaker has been learning about England's past through her new husband, British funnyman Russell Brand, and she can't wait to watch the Prince get married. But Perry fears the global interest in the highly-publicized wedding will be difficult for the royal couple to cope with.
She tells Britain's The Sun, "I think the whole world is going to be watching that one. The whole world is going to be tuning in. I think it's just one of those moments that you don't want to miss. I find the whole royalty system very interesting because we don't have it in the States. One of my favorite subjects has always been history, and Russell has been very helpful filling me in with the history of the English."
"Going by history, the interest in Kate and William's relationship is probably a hundred times what we get. I don't know them first-hand, but from an outsider's perspective it looks like it's going to be really fun for them but a lot of hard work at the same time."
