This is the most googled member of the Royal Family

The 'Fab Four'

Google have released the most popular trends and searches of this year and Meghan Markle has come out on top as the most searched-for person of 2018.

Despite not being the only person to have a Royal wedding this year, The Duchess of Sussex was the only member of the Royal family to make the top 10 most searched-for people.

Her husband, Prince Harry, failed to make the list along with Princess Eugenie who married Jack Brooksbank in October 2018.

Meghan Markle also came second place in the most popular search in general, after the World Cup. The Royal Wedding was the third most popular trend proving the UK enjoys a Royal Google search!

It has been a significant year for Meghan with Royal weddings and baby announcements, so it is no surprise the mother-to-be is a point of interest.

The second most searched-for person in the UK was Roxanne Pallett; the former Emmerdale actress who captured the nation’s attention in Celebrity Big Brother 2018.

Fourth on the list was presenter Ant McPartlin. After a break from his career, the popular TV host is expected to return to his duties in January. Holly Willoughby took his place as presenter of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!, joining Dec in the jungle. She was hugely popular and fans have requested she makes a return next year.

It was revealed I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! was the most searched-for television show on Google. Killing Eve and Bodyguard, two programmes which gripped the country, came second and third.

In terms of what the UK wanted to know, queries such as ‘How to floss dance?’, ‘What is bitcoin?’and ‘How to watch the Champions League final?’ were some of the UK’s most searched-for queries.

With Meghan Markle being the most searched-for person of 2017 as well, the question is - will she make it a hat-trick?
