A new report has claimed that Queen Elizabeth is more popular than media mogul Oprah Winfrey, reality TV family Kardashians, singing superstar Beyonce and tech guru Bill Gates…
According to Statista.com, the Queen is not only the most-liked member of the Royal Family, but her ‘brand’ is also bigger and far-reaching than other prominent stars mentioned above.
In addition, the Queen’s positioning is also more well-known than multinational companies like Coca-Cola, Nike, Ferrari and Microsoft.
The British Monarchy – widely known as ‘The Firm’ – is also reportedly the fifth most talked about brand in the world behind Facebook, Amazon, Google and Apple.
The research was reportedly commissioned for True Royalty TV for a documentary titled; Elizabeth at 95: The Invincible Queen, which celebrates the monarch’s 95th birthday and almost 70 years on the throne.
The royal doccie will delve into the Queen’s role as ‘CEO of The Firm’, the monarchy’s influence and how she leveraged their brand through various money-making operations.
According to Vanity Fair, the doccie will feature business leaders, brand and financial experts, government ministers, historians and royal insiders who praise the Queen’s astute business acumen and forward-thinking actions.

But despite the monumental stats, tweeps were less than impressed
In fact, many have questioned how the Queen – who was born into generational wealth and centuries of power and influence – can compare to self-made successful individuals like Beyonce and Oprah.
See what they have to say…
Oprah worked for her brand, the Queen was handed a title and priviledge on a silver platter. The queen wears a stolen South African diamond, Oprah built a school in South Africa. No comparison here. https://t.co/AmwiIVjjru

This is an insult to Beyonce, Oprah and all the women who work hard to create their own brand, make their own money, without stealing from poor people. https://t.co/G6Ebp8OwlW

Yes @Oprah and @Beyonce worked hard to achieve what they have achieved. Yes they didn’t inherit crowns and riches. They are trying to uplifting an African Child. Their ancestors fought side by side with the British Army during World War 1&2 but only got bicycles after the war. https://t.co/usIvgHWRhW

Wow. So Oprah by herself managed to attain 1/3 of the power of countless generations of inbred “royals” living off stolen wealth?
What a legend

So wait? Oprah and Beyonce, descendants of slaves. Who just a few decades back were not even allowed to sit in the front seats of the bus, let alone own a business have now grown brands big enough to compete with THE British Monarch herself. Wow! pic.twitter.com/o0FpVxkVyj
