1st year anniversaries and a Jubliee year!
Catherine Duchess of Cambridge has been voted the most fashionable female royal according to a new poll.
The wife of Prince William scored a third of the vote pushing Her Majesty the Queen into second place with 21%.
The poll asked more than 1,000 female members of leading bingo site DottyBingo.com, to choose the most fashionable from a list of eight royal women.
Other royals who scored well were Zara Philips and Sophie Wessex who received 14% and 11% of the vote respectively.
Other than Her Majesty, older Royals did not fare particularly well in the poll with Princess Anne and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall both scoring seven per cent.
Younger royals also scored poorly with Princesses Beatrice getting five per cent of the vote and Eugenie three per cent.
Kate’s fashionable sister Pippa Middleton was excluded from the voted as she cannot be considered a royal.
A spokesperson from DottyBingo.com commented: “It is no surprise that Kate has achieved the top spot of the UK’s most fashionable royal, as for the last year she has hardly left the media spotlight.
“She is a real trend setter, as she only has to be seen wearing something once for it to be an immediate hit on the high-street. What’s more, because of the Duchess’ fantastic shape clothes fit her perfectly.
“Nevertheless, Kate would have had competition for the top spot if we had let people vote for her sister Pippa. However, due to the fact she is not a royal, we decided to keep her of the list.
“As we mark the one year anniversary of Kate and Wills’ wedding, it seems that the images of that day still influence how we view the style of our royals. For instance, we all remember the beauty of Kate’s dress and the fashion abomination which was Princess Beatrice’s hat.
“The Queen on the other hand has a timeless sense of style which continues to make her stand-out among the other female royals.”
“This just goes to show that traditional understated British elegance is winning through against some of the younger female royals.”

What do you think?
I love Kates style and the range of colours that she wears. But out of all the royals its the Queen I’m most eagerly awaiting to see her colour/suit choices.
