Meghan more beautiful than Kate Middleton but falls short of Princess Diana, most attractive royal in history
Princess Diana was a very narrow winner, there was less than 1% between her score and those of Queen Rania of Jordan, according to a computerized facial mapping technique using the Golden Ratio
The Golden Ratio of Greece has determined that Princess Diana was the most beautiful royal of all time. The same ratio determined that Meghan Markle was more beautiful than Kate Middleton. The results came after an analysis ran by Harley Street surgeon Dr Julian De Silva on some of the well-known female royals in history. The Golden Ratio was used by Leonardo Da Vinci for the perfect human male body in his famous work, the Vitruvian Man. Since then, the ancient Greek formula has been adapted by scientists to determine the definition of perfect beauty.
According to the Daily Mail, "The Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi originates from the European Renaissance. Artists and Architects used an equation - known as the Golden Ratio - as an aid during the creation of their masterpieces... The length and the width of someone's face is measured and then the results are divided. The premise is that the closer the ratios of a face or body are to the number 1.618 (Phi), the more beautiful they become. Measurements are then taken from the forehead hairline to the spot between the eyes, from the spot between the eyes and the bottom of the nose and from the bottom of the nose to the bottom of the chin. A person is considered to be more beautiful if the numbers are equal."
De Silva, has developed a computerized facial mapping technique using the Golden Ratio, according to which the late Diana was the most attractive, having obtained the highest score of all royal women compared. She received a score of 89.05%. "Princess Diana was a very narrow winner - there was less than 1% between her score and those of Queen Rania of Jordan in second and Princess Grace who was a very close third," De Silva said. "Diana scored highly for her face shape, the width of her nose, her brow area, her forehead and her eyebrows - which all got the top scores. Her lowest scores were for her chin and lips. Her lips are a little thin and ill-defined and her chin is less classical than some of the other women."
In the second rank was Queen Rania of Jordan with 88.9% and the third place was occupied by Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco with 88.8%. It was interesting, however, to see that Meghan was determined to be more beautiful than Kate through the Golden Ratio. The Duchess of Sussex scored 87.4% while the Duchess of Cambridge got 86.8%.
Meghan had a "beautiful facial symmetry,'' De Silva said, adding that, she got ''closer than any other princess to having what the Greeks considered the perfect face." ''Meghan has an almost perfectly shaped nose with a 98.5 percent score, her eye position is exactly right and she has a gorgeous V-shaped or heart-shaped chin which is the shape women most covet," he said.
Despite falling short of meeting the kind of facial perfection that Meghan boasted of, Kate was beautiful in her own way. "Kate stands out for having a perfect gap between her nose and lips and very strong eye spacing," De Silva said. "She was marked down for having a weaker chin and jawline than Diana. "Nevertheless, she is a striking woman and her scores mark her out as one of the most beautiful women in the world.''
In conclusion, De Silva said: "Diana, Meghan and Kate are all very beautiful women. But when measured against the Greeks' Golden Ratio of physical perfection, Princess Diana comes out on top."
