Kate Middleton has been pipped to the post by her younger sister after the nation voted Pippa as their favourite fantasy pantomime princess.

Pippa tied with Harry Potter actress Emma Watson, as the public’s top fantasy Snow White, with both picking up 14 per cent of the vote.

Poor Duchess Kate still managed to win 13 per cent in the YouGov poll of 2,024 adults - but it wasn’t good enough to match her sister.

Kate’s husband William on the other hand was selected as the nation’s favourite fantasy Prince Charming. He is a real life prince after all, so surely he had an unfair advantage…

The prince and pop star hunk Peter Andre tied in the top vote lifting 13 per cent each, while William’s younger brother Harry got 12 per cent.

The ultimate panto villain was, unsurprisingly, TV’s Mr Nasty Simon Cowell who won 27 per cent of the vote, while Cheryl Cole’s ex-husband Ashley, Tiger Wood, and Ryan Giggs were all also in the running for the title.

Meanwhile it seems Cheryl is much more popular than Ashley – 11 per cent voted her as their favourite fantasy pantomime princess, while X Factor judge Tulisa and pop star Lady Gaga were also popular public figures.

Another X Factor judge, Gary Barlow, and Strictly Come Dancing’s Brendan Cole, were also voted as popular possible princes.
