Meghan Markle ‘looks more trustworthy’ than the Queen, according to the authors of a new study that examines changes in portraits over 500 years.

Experts from PSL Research University created an algorithm that scans faces in painted portraits and photographs to determine the ‘trustworthiness’ of the subject based on their facial muscle contractions. 

The authors used the trustworthiness tool to discover that, as living standards improved since the 1500s, so did the apparent trustworthiness of the subjects. 

As part of the process of training the model, researcher compared some famous faces to ancient portraits – including the Queen and Meghan Markle to Elizabeth I.
