Dr Nihara Krause said, “To earn the respect of today’s youth, you don’t need to earn a fortune or look good.
“It is much more important that you show bravery, resilience and compassion for others and for nature.
“These are certainly qualities the Queen shares with some of the other names on this list, such as David Attenborough and Marcus Rashford.”

And it looks like the Sussexes’ joint popularity remained stable in February – and even increased in early March.
Meanwhile, another poll in April suggested they had lost some of their popularity.
