    A study by Save On Energy Beauty and the Beast’s Belle has been crowned the Queen of Disney Princess role models.

    Following closely behind was Aladdin’s Princess Jasmine, who 81 per cent of parents voted for as good role model for her intelligence, honesty, independence, courage, generosity and good humour.

    Princess Tiana from The Princess and the Frog came third with 77 per cent of votes, for her hardworking, focused, careful, determined, intelligent and inspiring personality.

    Coming at the bottom of the list was Tangled’s Rapunzel with only 44 per cent of votes as, although some parents thought she was optimistic, energetic, caring, passionate and adventurous, others labelled her dramatic, vain and carefree.

    Merida from Brave came just above Rapunzel with 48 per cent of votes, as parents were more swayed by the witty, feisty and rebellious parts of her personality than her confidence, drive and resourcefulness.
