And now, she has been analyzed once again...
via: GettyBut this time, it's for her face.
Meghan has been ranked as officially "more attractive" than her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton.
via: GettyThe conclusion was deduced by Dr. Julian De Silva, Head of the Centre For Advanced Facial Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery in London who analyzed some of the most well-known royal women using the Golden ratio. The Golden Ratio is an Ancient Greek theorem used to determine “physical perfection" by comparing the symmetry of facial features.
Dr. Julian De Silva ranked as fifth, including Queen Rania of Jordan and Princess Grace of Monaco, with Princess Diana ranking first.
via: GettyPrincess Diana scored 89.05 percent overall on the Golden Ratio with her facial features receiving top scores all around.
Dr. De Silva explained, “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."
via: GettyThe Express reported that when speaking to the Daily Mail, he continued by adding: "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."
Meghan received a Golden Ratio rating of 87.7 percent, while Kate scored 86.62 percent.
via: GettyMeghan's nose was highlighted as her best feature for its width and length, receiving a rating of 98.5 percent.
On the other hand, the Duchess of Cambridge scored best for her nose base and lip width, recieving 91.9 percent due to it being her most symmetrical feature.
via: GettyDr. De Silva explained that Meghan had gotten "closer than any other princess to having what the Greeks considered the perfect face."
Speaking of Kate he added, "Kate stands out for having a perfect gap between her nose and lips and very strong eye spacing."
via: Getty"She was marked down for having a weaker chin and jawline than Diana." Though he also noted that she was still "one of the most beautiful women in the world."
Regardless of these scores and ranks...
via: GettyIt's all about the beauty that is held within and both Meghan and Kate are equally as beautiful people - inside and out.
As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
