London, August 9 (ANI): The French have voted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge among their favourite married couples while Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni fell drastically out of favour.
Britain's royal couple heads a list of power couplings along with, 'The Artist,' actor Jean Dujardin and his actress wife Alexandra Lamy.
A Harris Interactive poll for Gala magazine saw 17 percent of people voting for Dujardin-Lamy as their favourites, with William and Kate just behind them with 13 percent.
The Sarkozys were able to bag just three percent of the total votes, the Daily Mail reported.
They have frequently been criticised for their multi-millionaire "bling-bling" lifestyle and obsession with super-rich friends.
Meanwhile the British royal couple have been dominating French TV screens and newspapers during their appearances at the London Olympics.
The couple's wedding was also hugely popular across the English Channel last year, with some French bemoaning the fact that they have not had a royal family of their own since the 1789 Revolution.
Dujardin and Lamy, who married in 2009, are - like William and Kate - viewed as having taste and modesty, as well as lots of money.
US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle also featured high up in the list of "dream couples" with 12 percent of the votes.
Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who have spent lot of time in France, captured the 5th position with nine percent of votes.
However, Prince Albert of Monaco and his wife, the former South African swimmer, Charlene were ranked towards the bottom.
The Harris Interactive poll had been carried out between July 30 and August 2, with 1448 adults across France being asked to list their favourite dream couple. (ANI)
