Duchess Catherine has topped a list of the ‘coolest females’, according to a new study.

The Duchess of Cambridge has been voted ‘most inspiring’ in a new study after she topped a list of the ‘coolest females of the moment’.

Researchers from agency Perspectus Global polled 2,000 British women on which global females they consider the ‘coolest and most inspiring’.

And the stylish royal topped the list, making an appearance alongside her sister-in-law the Duchess of Sussex and the duo’s grandmother-in-law Queen Elizabeth II.

Former First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama, who recently released new documentary Becoming, made the list, as well as fellow former First Lady and ex-presidential candidate Hilary Clinton.

And they weren’t the only politics-focused ladies to feature on the list as New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern also featured.

The high-profile role models appeared on the list alongside a number of Brits who have made it to Hollywood, including Game of Thrones Emilia Clarke, Harry Potter and Beauty and the Beast’s Emma Watson and Killing Eve writer Phoebe Waller Bridge.

“During these strange and uncertain times, it’s fantastic to see strong, powerful women coming to the fore,” said Evie Porter Spokesperson and Head of Projects at Perspectus Global.

“From her Hold Still photography project to a video call with a new mum and virtual bingo session with care home residents, Kate has shown just how cool and inspiring she is.”

And when it came to why the diverse group of women made the list, characteristics that were deemed important included being humble (34%), empowering other women (32%), caring for others (43%) and having a strong sense of identity (57%).
