Queen Elizabeth is still the most popular member of the royal family after all these years, a new poll conducted by Ipsos Mori revealed — but it seems like she has some competition, as Kate Middleton came in a close second.

"There is no denying that the royal family has had a turbulent few years, but public opinion still contains more supporters than critics of the institution," Gideon Skinner, head of political research at Ipsos Mori in the U.K., said. "In the run up to the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, [the Queen] remains the most popular member of the royal family, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge cementing their position."

Over the years, the 40-year-old Duchess has won over many people, including the Queen herself!

"In recent years, we’ve seen her leadership in the wake of Megxit, throughout which she’s kept calm and carried on," Katie Nicholl noted to Closer. "I think this year she’ll come into her own even more, especially as it’ll be a tough year for the royals."

"Harry and Meghan’s interviews this year have caused chaos for the royals, and Harry’s new memoir – due out next year – will likely reveal even more intimate details about the royal family, and cause further issues," Nicholl continued. "And Andrew’s court case will too. Kate will step up and I know the Queen hugely values her support, and will rely on her more than ever."

Nicholl also thinks Kate has proved herself in the last year.

"We’ve seen Kate blossom over the years, growing in confidence and evolving into a key member of the royals," she said. "Just last month, she proved how far she’d come when she hosted the royals’ Christmas carol concert on her own."
