Move aside the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex; the Queen continues to reign in the popularity stakes, according to new research.
In the annual YouGov poll, participants described Her Majesty as "admirable, hard-working, respected, and dedicated"—earning her an impressive 72% positivity rating.
In an unsurprising turn of events, the Duke of Sussex followed closely behind, courtesy of his "humorous" and "fun-loving" persona. The new father has been bumped down a spot, as he was named the most popular royal in last year's poll.
The Duke of Cambridge came in third place after receiving a 69% positive opinion rating with royal fans describing the "most famous" Kensington Palace inhabitant as a "good role model."
In at number four was the Duchess of Cambridge, followed by the Duke of Edinburgh, and then the Duchess of Sussex—who has suffered a six percent drop, from a 55% to 49% positive rating, in comparison to last year's survey.
Despite being some of the youngest members of the family, sisters Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice were named the nation's least favourite royals, alongside their father Prince Andrew.
