For the first time in 17 years, Hillary Clinton has not topped the list of ‘Most Admired Woman in the World.’

According to Yahoo News, that honor now goes to Michelle Obama who came out tops in Gallup’s annual poll.

The former First Lady had been a runner-up to Clinton in the past three years.

Oprah Winfrey came in second place and current First Lady Melania Trump tied with Hillary Clinton for third place. Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II made the top 10 list for the 50th time.

According to Gallup, their annual survey “asks Americans, in an open-ended question, to name the man and woman living anywhere in the world today whom they admire most. The survey first began in 1946 and has taken place every year since then, except for 1976.

Former President Barack Obama topped the list of “Most Admired Man” for the 11th consecutive year, followed by President Trump in second place and former President George W. Bush tied with Pope Francis for third place.
