Washington: Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge has been named 2011’s Best-Mannered Person by an etiquette and social training program.

The 29-year-old Duchess topped the National League of Junior Cotillions’ annual etiquette list of the ‘Ten Best-Mannered People of 2011’.

According to NLJC national director Elizabeth Anne Winters, the list ranks actors, celebrities, singers and athletes based on one’s “demonstration of dignity, honour and respect,” Us Magazine reported.

Winters said that being praised for the poise and dignity with which she conducts herself in the public spotlight, Kate was the clear front-runner for this year’s top spot.

Justin Bieber, who is No. 2 on the list and Paula Abdul at No. 3 were also applauded for their behaviour this year, as were Taylor Swift (No. 5) and Harry Potter’s Emma Watson (No. 9).
