he Duchess of Cambridge has been voted the “world’s most stylish royal” in a brand-new survey. Conducted by FARFETCH, the results found that Catherine was the only member of The Royal Family to make the list, with both Meghan Markle and the Queen absent.

The international survey asked 14,000 adults from Europe to see who they felt was the most stylish public figure in the world today. The Duchess received an impressive 24% of the voting share, making her the only member of the Royal Family to make it into the top 10. She was, however, narrowly beaten to the top spot by Victoria Beckham.

Catherine has long been celebrated for her fashion choices which frequently sell-out in hours – even including facemasks throughout the pandemic. Dubbed the “Kate-effect”, the Duchess has evolved her style throughout the years, ensuring that she always remains true to her own identity instead of following the crowd.

“The Duchess of Cambridge manages to mix the regal persona of royal fashion with the relatability of the Highstreet,” said a spokesperson for FARFETCH. “Her choices depict an evolution in style, specifically in 2020, yet a consistent tone which has come to define her fashion.

“Most recently her stunning emerald green Falconetti dress designed by Susie Cave of The Vampire’s Wife was voted Vogue’s best dress of the decade, and her wedding dress was recently noted as the greatest fashion moment of the last decade.

“It proves Kate’s fashion prowess, and one which seems to be growing from strength to strength, which is a remarkable feat, considering she has spent just short of a decade as a senior member of the Royal Family.”

As well as individual style icons being ranked, European countries were also scored for their fashion choices with Italy taking the top spot. France and Spain took second and third with the UK taking fourth place.
