Despite leaving the royal family, fans still can't seem to get enough of Meghan Markle. So much so, a new poll conducted by youth health charity stem4 analyzed people's interest in a number of celebrity and public figures, including musicians, athletes and more.

The poll asked 1,032 people between the ages of 13 and 25 to vote for who "the most respected" royal family member is. Queen Elizabeth came in first place, with 26 percent of the votes, while Meghan and Prince Harry got 21 percent of the votes — beating out Kate Middleton and Prince William, who both got 11 percent of the votes.

People said the reason they admired these public figures was "they are brave and resilient, and even when things go wrong, they carry on."

"To earn the respect of young people today you don’t need to earn a fortune or have good looks," Dr. Nihara Krause, Founder and CEO at stem4, said. "It’s far more important that you show bravery, resilience, and compassion for others and for nature. Those are certainly qualities the Queen shares with some of the other names on this list such as David Attenborough and Marcus Rashford."

"This is the beginning of a new chapter within the family that will hopefully heal old wounds. Finally, there is hope that the family can reunite," a source told The Royal Observer. "No one knew it at the time, but when Archie was born, Harry and Meghan were so angry with the family that they wanted nothing to do with them moving forward. That is why they broke all traditions and went with a totally new royal name."
