A new month means a whole loada' new cover stars for us to feast our eyes on. This month has already seen the likes of Victoria Beckham for Elle and Cara Delevignge for Vogue, and now Keira Knightly is gracing the cover as well as the pages of Marie Claire.

The actress stripped back for the mag and spilled the beans on the royal family, the paparazzi and getting hitched.

"I'm over the moon about the royal baby," she said. "But I really can't mount an argument in favour of monarchy. Is that treason? Do I have to turn in my passport?" We doubt this national treasure will be having her passport revoked any time soon, no matter how she REALLY feels about the royal clan.

The actress also touched upon her relationship with the paps, "They're not going to get a shot of me falling out of my knickers as I'm coming out of a club." Hmmm we can think of a few slebs who'd do well to listen to Keira's words of showbiz wisdom.

Down to the nitty gritty, how's her relationship with fiance, Klaxons keyboardist, James Righton? "I'm not someone who listens to a lot of music. But I get wonderful perspective by being with someone who is less like me than more like me. The way he thinks is something I don't get. We come at things from totally different angles."

So how about her wedding? "I could have six fake weddings. God, that would be expensive. We're not really big-wedding types. I don't need to have all that."

We were hoping for a bit more goss out of the Knightley, but she's keeping her cards close to her chest. Still, we can't wait for the WEDDING! Hats at the ready.
