Meghan and Harry step back from US move to claim title from William and Kate

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were revealed to be the most “talked-about” royals of the year. New data shows Google searches for the couple were 64 percent higher than any other couple in the royal family, including William and Kate.

Meghan and Harry came out on top in a study conducted by Lucky Creek, which analyzed global Google Trends data for 2021.

Research shows that Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, were specifically searched 367 percent more than William and Kate this year.

The Sussexes, recently named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world, stepped down from royal duties last year.

They now live in America, where they live a “financially independent” life away from the monarchy with their two children, Archie and Lillibet.

After leaving the firm, the couple sat down for a bombshell interview with American chat show host Oprah Winfrey, where they made a series of seismic claims about their time as senior royals.

The data shows that interest in the pair peaked at this time.

The study found that the interview was also the most talked-about royal moment of 2021, with 566 percent more searches than any other royal event.

The interview also left behind Prince Philip’s funeral, the second most talked-about royal story of the year.

William and Kate’s most talked-about moment of 2021 was their ten-year wedding anniversary, an occasion that was marked with a BBC documentary and an Instagram post from the couple.

Images released for the occasion showed members of the royal family, who have three children together, hugging outside their home of Kensington Palace.

The anniversary caused the couple’s interest to exceed their annual average by 410 percent.

The 95-year-old Queen was most searched in April during her husband’s funeral.

Members of the royal family united to pay an emotional farewell to the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen’s husband of 73 years, who died shortly before his 100th birthday.

Her funeral plans were revised in light of COVID-19 restrictions and only 30 guests attended the service, including all of Philip’s children and grandchildren – as well as her husband.

The Queen was depicted sitting alone in St. George’s Chapel, leading to a 279 percent increase in the search for the monarch.

Interest in Lady Louise Windsor, Prince Edward’s daughter, also peaked during Philip’s funeral.

The royal, who celebrated her 18th birthday this year, also got 165 percent more buzz in 2020 than 2021.
