TomTom research reveals Homer Simpson is more popular than The Queen

A new study by TomTom has revealed that although 83 per cent of people think they could recognise The Queen’s voice, they’d rather install Homer Simpson's voice on their sat nav.

Although The Queen was top of the chart, only 30 per cent of the 1,000 adults taking part in the study think that they could recognise Prince William’s voice. Other royals proved even more unrecognisable with Prince Edward and Prince Andrew bringing up the rear with four and six per cent respectively.

"It is surprising that, apart from the Queen and her eldest son, we don't know what our royal family sound like,” commented a TomTom spokesman.

It appears sat nav users prefer celebrities, with almost one in four preferring the voices of Stephen Fry, John Cleese and the ever-popular Homer Simpson to guide them through their car journey.

Here are the results of the ten members of the royal family who featured in the survey. How many royal voices do you think you could recognise?

1.The Queen - 83 per cent
2.Prince Charles - 76 per cent
3.Duke of Edinburgh - 43 per cent
4.Prince William - 30 per cent
5.Princess Anne - 26 per cent
6.Prince Harry - 21 per cent
7.Kate (Duchess of Cambridge) - 14 per cent
8.Camilla (Duchess of Cornwall) - 7 per cent
9.Prince Andrew - 6 per cent
10.Prince Edward - 4 per cent
