Queen Elizabeth wasn’t the Most Searched Royal during Her Big Party. Find out Who Was


Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee took place earlier this month, and many assumed she would be the most talked-about royal family member during the celebration. However, a new study revealed the most mentioned royal—and it’s definitely not who you were expecting. 

Who Was the Most Searched King?

Some thought that the queen would win the top spot, but others believed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be the most talked about royals. It was widely reported that the couple returned to royal life during the Jubilee. One would think that the Duke of Sussex and Duchess would cause a lot of commotion.

However, JeffBet has conducted a new study.Google Trends data revealed that Prince William was the most popular royal. According to their study, William’s name saw a 586% increase in online searches over the weekend of the Jubilee. After he delivered a speech in memory of his grandmother, the searches reached their peak. 

What did Harry and Markle rank?

Who took the remaining slots? With a 410% increase of searches for his name, Harry was second. William’s wife, Kate Middleton, took third place; searches containing her name saw an increase of 133%. 

Over the Jubilee weekend, Markle saw a rise in public interest. Her name was searched online 96% higher than usual. Many were shocked that she and Harry weren’t closer to the top of the most-Googled-royals list. 

The Duke And Duchess Of Sussex’s Return To The UK

Their return to the UK was a huge topic of conversation ahead of Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee. Harry and Markle left their royal family to move to California in 2020. This made headlines because of their candid comments regarding why they had left. The couple was not the first to return to England for the Jubilee trip. 

Soon after, what the British press called “The British Press” “Megxit,”Harry returned briefly to attend the ceremony honouring Princess Diana, his late mother. Markle returned to the UK earlier in the year after Harry and Markle made a secret visit with the queen on their way from the UK to Holland for Invictus Games. 

Markle and Harry kept a low profile during the Jubilee. The pair, who are no longer working royals were not allowed on the Buckingham Palace balcony to witness the Trooping of the Colour. Even though they did their best to stay out of the spotlight, JeffBet’s study shows that the world is still very interested in Harry and Markle.
