They still have another six months to go until the birth of their royal baby. But the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have already been crowned Britain's most stylish celebrity parents-to-be. Prince William and his pregnant wife, the former Kate Middleton, took the top spot in a survey asked to name the expecting couple they thought were the most stylish.

More than a third of those questioned named the royal pair, who saw off competition from the likes of Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson, Fearne Cotton and Jesse Wood, and David Walliams and Lara Stone.While it comes as little surprise that the nation's golden couple topped the poll, second place was perhaps a little less predictable.Narrowly missing out on the top spot were celebrity favourites Kim Kardashian and Kanye West who picked up an impressive 19 per cent of the vote.The showbiz couple are also expecting their first child in July, and just like William and Kate, they too announced their pregnancy news in December of 2012. Radio DJ Fearne Cotton and her partner Jesse Wood – son of Rolling Stone Ronnie – came in at number three, just ahead of pop-star husband and wife team Rochelle and Marvin Humes who will welcome their baby in the middle of the year. Former model Sophie Dahl and her musician husband Jamie Cullum were voted into the top five, very closely followed by British comedian David Walliams and his model wife Lara Stone.


Seventh place, meanwhile, went to the lady behind the Duchess' wedding dress, designer Sarah Burton and her husband David. They were placed just ahead of American stars Channing Tatum and his actress wife Jenna Dewan.In at number nine were Jessica Simpson and her husband Eric Johnson, while Peaches Geldof and Thomas Cohen rounded up the top ten. Both couples will welcome their second children in 2013.A spokesperson for – the discount voucher website who conducted the survey of 1,000 parents – commented: "It is interesting to see parents' perceptions of who they think the most stylish celebrity parents-to-be are."I was surprised to see that Kim and Kanye came so high up in the order, only just losing out to first place."2013 is going to be a busy year for celebrity parents and its important for them to keep up with their stylish image even after giving birth."One parent who took part in the poll said: "Kim and Kanye are definitely the best dressed celebrity couple expecting a child. "The Beckhams better watch out because Kanye will have his child dressed in all the designer brands."Another participant added: "I love Fearne Cotton and Jesse Wood's fashion sense."I can imagine them being the coolest parents around, with other couple being jealous of their quirky style."
