Keira Knightley is eagerly anticipating a special bundle of joy. No, she's not pregnant. She's talking about Kate Middleton.

The actress, who covers the March issue of Marie Claire, (out Feb. 12), says when asked about the royal family: "I'm over the moon about the royal baby. But I really can't mount an argument in favor of monarchy. Is that treason? Do I have to turn in my passport?"

Knightley also discusses her acting career and her upcoming film Can a Song Save Your Life? with Mark Ruffalo and musicians including Adam Levine, CeeLo Green and Mos Def.

Speaking of musicians, how is her fiancé, 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."

As for their wedding, she'll likely keep is simple. "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."
