Princess Diana has been crowned the most attractive female royal of all time, according to science.

Research into what constitutes the ‘perfect face’ has found Princess Diana came closest to scoring 100% based on the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, which measures physical perfection.

Lipstick fan Maya Allen, 27, the digital beauty editor for Marie Claire, whose lipstick collection tops 200, says there’s no doubt the pandemic in general and face
