Princess Diana has beaten Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle in the Most Iconic Women poll.

The late Princess of Wales remains the most favorite royal even after two decades of her passing based on the results of a recent poll. According to Carly Read, a journalist for Express, about 1,500 women cast their votes in a list of categories from icons, sports, music, film and television. Fifty-seven percent of them voted for Princess Diana as the most iconic woman.

The Duchess of Cambridge follows on the second spot with 33 percent. On the other hand, the new royal lags behind in the sixth place.

Middleton and Markle are very popular, but apparently, their mother-in-law remains the favorite royal figure. According to Princess Diana's former bodyguard, she had always loved to live a "normal" life. Unfortunately, she was not able to get what she wanted after marrying Prince Charles, the future king.

"Diana was always keen to bring some normality. One of her famous catch phrases was 'I want to be normal'," Ken Wharfe told Yahoo News' "Royal Box." "Well it isn't normal to have X number of shifts, it isn't normal to have access to more than one palace to have these luxury holidays, specialised travel and a helicopter land in your backyard. Being in the royal family is a piece of theatre, this is unreal - you are performing."

In related news, the firefighter who saved Princess Diana from the car accident thought that she would survive. According to Xavier Gourmelon, Princess Diana was still conscious and didn't look badly affected. In fact, there was no blood just a slight injury to her right shoulder. However, he was wrong because the People's Princess died in the hospital.

Prince Harry and Prince William were deeply hurt following the death of their mom. The Duke of Sussex blamed the paparazzi for the accident and has since been indifferent to the media.

"She had quite a severe head injury but she was very much still alive on the back seat. And those people that caused the accident, instead of helping, they were taking photographs on the back seat, and then those photographs made their way back to news desks," Prince Harry said.
