Is there anything more feminine than a Tiara? As a little girl I dreamed of wearing one, I had seen all the pictures of Swedish brides and the little crown of diamonds that they wear, I loved all the pictures of Princesses with their heads covered in jewels...I really want to wear a tiara once in my life. There is no woman alive who does not look beautiful in a tiara.

Well, maybe one...

BeautifulPeople.com, a social networking site for the genetically blessed, recently polled 127,000 of its visitors in a royal rumble match-up to find the prettiest prince and princess.

Bride-to-be Kate Middleton beating out Princess Diana may have been a "big surprise," Greg Hodge, managing director of the site, told The New York Post. But Prince Charles placing 10th on the men's "most beautiful" list may be the most shocking. Prince Carl Philip of Sweden grabbed the top spot among the guys, while Prince William took fifth.

"The British royals are typically very horsey-looking," Hodge explained. "Diana certainly improved the... gene pool, and we hope that Kate will do the same."

The Most Beautiful Royal Women
#10 Princess Masako of Japan
#9 Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon
#8 Princess Mary of Denmark
#7 Princess Madeleine of Sweden
#6 Gayatri Devi, Maharani of Jaipur
#5 Charlotte Casiraghi of Monaco
#4 Princess Diana
#3 Kate Middleton, princess in waiting
#2 Queen Rania of Jordan
#1 Princess Grace of Monaco



Who do I see among all those princesses and queens? A king! Thorin Oakenshield, King of the Dwarves in The Hobbit :-)

I had commented to my husband previously that Princess Diana had improved the British royal gene pool and Kate Middleton should improve it further yet. She is beautiful, but doesn't have any unusual physical characteristics so her genes should blend well. I, too, find it hard to believe that Prince Charles could even make the list. There must be a lot of people out there who need their glasses checked!

At my age, I too am surprised that Kate won out over Diana, but then I thought about it and realized that many voters would be too young to remember much about Diana, and they are caught up in the current fairytale. At the same time, hmmm, Grace came out first. So much for that theory. Kate is truly a beauty.

I had the pleasure of owning and wearing a tiara at one time out in public. :) It was thrilling! My little sister begged me for it and I finally gave it to her. Sweet baby.

The tiaras really are very lovely, but it appears you also need a necklace and earrings to go with them. How do royals pull off this look without appearing overdressed and gaudy? They have a finesse that I have to admire.

Like you, Karen, these ladies are born to wear a tiara.
