As the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton nears, you'll be hearing more and more about how Middleton is a 'commoner.'

Jane Seymour, who will be covering the wedding for 'Entertainment Tonight,' was on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9 PM ET on CNN), where she and Morgan discussed how being a "commoner" is far from being the insult it would seem.

"Everybody loved [Princess] Diana so much, so to have her eldest son marry a commoner, marry one of their kind, Kate, is very, very special," the British-born Seymour explained.

"People in America tend to think the word commoner is sort of insulting, but it's not at all," British citizen Morgan added. "It's actually -- I think people in Britain are really proud that William has chosen as his wife someone who hasn't been born into pageantry or royalty. She's from an ordinary family."

Seymour agreed, adding that William had lived as normal a life as he could of under the circumstances, so marrying a commoner just adds to his down-to-earth appeal.
