The Real Star of King Charles’s Coronation? Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Prove To Be the Most Popular

As the TV coverage of King Charles’ coronation on Saturday was watched by an estimated 11.7 million households in the US, it was interesting to check how fascinated Americans are with the royal family. Who was the most popular Royal?

The historic coronation of King Charles III took place on Saturday, May 6th. The coronation took place despite in-fighting within the Royal Family. Prince Harry famously released his memory, Spare, just this year to serious critical acclaim and success. The coronation seems to be the first time he has seen his family since it was released. It was certainly the first time he saw them in public, although “saw” is a strong word. Harry sat a few rows back and seemed to be in England for the ceremony only, quickly hopping on a commercial flight back to Los Angeles. Meghan Markle did not attend at all.

The team at SuperBettingSites looked at Google search volumes for several members of the British royal family, including King CharlesWilliam, and Harry, as well as Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. After analyzing the data, they found that, unsurprisingly, Meghan Markle, the only American member of the royal family, was the top searched royal in the United States over the past year.

Interestingly, her husband, Harry, the Duke of Sussex, is the most searched-for member of the royal family in half of the states (exactly 25). Meghan, in comparison, is the top searched royalty in 18 states, while Prince William was the top result in two states. King Charles, Queen Camilla, and the Princess of Wales do not appear on the map at all since their names were not amongst the top search terms for the time period.

In terms of search interest by state, Prince Harry is the most popular member of the royal family. He is the top searched term (compared to the others) in 25 states, while the overall index (18.0) for his name nearly reaches that of his spouse.

Over the past 12 months, Prince William was the most searched member of the royal family in only two states, namely Virginia and Alaska. The elder son of the King, who is also the heir apparent, is not very popular among Americans, at least compared to his brother and sister-in-law.

According to the Google Trends data for the past 12 months, Kate Middleton is not very popular among Americans.

Interestingly, when we look for search volume data for King Charles III, he does not even make the top 3 most searched royalties in the United States.
