Meghan Markle’s wedding dress named the ‘most popular royal dress in the world’

Meghan Markle's icon wedding dress has been crowned as the most popular Royal wedding dress in the world.

Researchers from Wealth of Geek found that the dress from the 2018 wedding to Prince Harry was pulling in more than 51,000 searches on Google every month.

This is well above the second-placed favourite, Meghan's sister in law Kate Middleton's dress which garners around 47,000 global searches per month.

Meghan wore a custom-made Givenchy dress by designer Claire Waight Keller for her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018.

Kate's dress was designed by the-late Alexander McQueen, and was made by Sarah Burton from 2011.

In third place is Princess Diana, who fetches an average of 30,000 monthly global searches for her dress, forty years on from the wedding in 1981.

The research by Wealth of Geeks calculated global monthly Google searches for wedding dresses from fifteen of the most popular Royal weddings since King George VI and Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, to see which one was the world's favourite – and Meghan Markle's dress was the most popular by a long way.

Coming in fourth on the list was Princess Beatrice, whose dress manages to get 8,200 searches per month, with Queen Elizabeth II coming fifth.

Princess Margaret and Princess Eugenie sit sixth and seventh in the list, while Sarah Ferguson, Princess Anne and Camilla Parker Bowles round out the top 10.

A spokesman for the researchers said: “Meghan Markle has been a fashion icon since she was catapulted onto the world stage when news broke of her romance with Prince Harry in 2016.

“The enduring popularity of her wedding dress, despite the wedding taking place almost four years ago, is a testament to the Duchess’ effortlessly elegant and timeless style.

“Despite leaving her official role as a working Royal, this study highlights her unwavering ability to keep the world's attention on her, not only through her actions but also through her iconic style.”
