Who is the UK’s ‘most beautiful’ royal? Ancient theory explains


ROYAL weddings have captivated Britons for centuries, providing a unique insight into the glitz, glamour, romance and beauty of high society. One plastic surgeon claims to have picked out the most beautiful of them all.

Britons have long held the Royal Family as one of the UK’s most beautiful. But people have always argued over who of them may hold the title of “most beautiful”. One doctor claims to have found the most objectively beautiful, using an ancient technique.

Who is the most beautiful royal?

The Royal Family is a who’s who of beautiful people, but ultimately the best looking of them all has fallen to preference.

Now, modern application of the ancient “Golden Ratio” theory has attempted to single out the most beautiful royal.

Harley Street facial surgeon Dr Julian De Silva used the method to form the basis of a mapping tool and applied it to the Royal Family.

The Golden Ratio, also known as Phi or the Fibonacci number, was allegedly developed by the ancient Greeks.

Leonardo Da Vinci propelled it into popular thought, explaining that the closer the human face is to the number, the more people perceive it as beautiful.

Scientists and artists use placement, length, width and symmetry to find which faces are the most agreeable.

The theory states the closer someone is to 1.618, the more beautiful they are, and in the case of the Royal Family, it is Princess Diana.

The People’s Princess has the highest value among the female royals at 89.05 percent accurate to the ratio.

As such, the theory would declare her the most beautiful.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, weren’t far behind.

The Duchess of Sussex had a value of 87.4 percent to the Duchess of Cambridge’s 86.82 percent.

Dr De Silva, who heads the Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in London, said they are all “very beautiful women”.

But he added: “But when measured against the Greeks’ Golden Ratio of physical perfection, Princess Diana comes out on top.”

Not everyone agrees with Dr De Silva’s discovery, however.

Tatler has previously named a different “most beautiful” royal.

Lady Amelia, 26, is 42nd in line to the throne and employed as a model.

She has since appeared in fashion shows for established brands such as Dolce and Gabbana.

In 2016, she graced the cover of Tatler, which titled her the “most beautiful royal”.
