London: She was castigated in the British press for her less than perfect body two years ago but Princess Beatrice, the grand daughter of Queen Elizabeth II of England, has been ranked alongside Hollywood beauty Jennifer Aniston in a survey to find the world`s hottest bikini body.
The 21-year-old was at the centre of a media storm after unflattering photos of her in an ill-fitting bikini went around the world, two years ago.
In a little over two years, she has lost a stone and a half and run the London marathon.
Model and Football WAG Abbey Clancy grabbed the top spot, model-actresss Kelly Brook came second and popstar Katy Perry took the third place in the survey by Gillette Venus, reported Daily Mail online.
The young royal tied with `Friends` star Aniston, 41, and stunning Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio, 29.
Beatrice, who is studying history at University in London, looked svelte on the Riviera last month after finishing her second-year exams.
