It's exciting enough that she's becoming a princess, but this news is sure to make Kate Middleton's day even brighter: On April 29, she will become not just a royal, but the third most beautiful royal in history—in the entire world. She scored 84% in a recent poll, bumping her just ahead of Princess Diana, who scored 82%. Who's ahead of her? Princess Grace of Monaco at 91% and Queen Rania of Jordan at 90%, the Telegraph reports.

But Middleton will be marrying beneath her rank: Prince William is just the fifth most handsome on the male side, with his brother Harry coming in fourth. (Somehow, their father managed to snag the 10th place spot.) In other semi-royal news, Lifetime's William & Kate debuted last night to less-than-stellar reviews. New York offers up the eight cheesiest lines from the movie, while Gawker has what it touts as the worst scene. (Read more Kate Middleton stories.)
