Kate Middleton has gone way down in the style stakes!

British publication Hello! asked 30,000 readers globally to rank the most stylish young royals and K-Middy didn't get the number one spot… or the number two for that matter.

Instead, Princess Mary of Denmark was ranked first – with nearly 30 percent of the vote.

And Queen Máxima of the Netherlands came in second, leaving poor Kate came third. Surely the princess isn't losing her sparkle? 

Queen Letizia of Spain and Princesses Mette-Marit of Norway also made it into the top five on the stylish list. 

The survey also revealed that Ms Cambridge's fashion influence is equal to that of Snooki and Paris Hilton. Ouch. 

Participants of the survey said that they think her style is too "safe" and "less independent" than other style icons. 

But the Duchess is already stepping up her game with a new stylist on board and plenty of leg on display (ooh-la-la-la) at on public appearance late last year. 

In short, we certainly discount her just yet – *hair flip*.
