Queen Latifah has some advice for Kate Middleton, who is set to marry a real-life royal - Prince William.
"Make sure you have a sanctuary, because everybody in the world is going to be in your business," the hip hop singer and actress told Parade magazine. "He happened to be born a prince; you happened to go to college and meet him. You're two kids who fell in love. I just hope you have a happy life. And don't take anything personally."
Middleton and Prince William, both 28, met eight years ago when they were students. The British Monarchy announced late last month that the two will marry on April 29, 2011 at Westminster Abbey, the site of the 1997 funeral of his mother, Princess Diana, as well as the 1947 wedding of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
The date of the wedding falls on a Friday and will be marked as a national holiday in the United Kingdom.
Latifah, 40, is set to host the 2011 People's Choice Awards ceremony, which airs on CBS on Wednesday, and can be seen in the new Vince Vaughn comedy movie, "The Dilemma," when it opens on January 14. Latifah also told Parade that in 10 years, she hopes to be "on cruise control, with a couple of kids under my belt."
