Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have the most popular celebrity wedding, according to new data. Compiling a list of Google searches for celebrity weddings since 2018, Harry and Meghan have amassed over 2.5M searches, beating the likes of Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian and Kate Middleton.


People all over the world can’t get enough of Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding, according to new data.

Not only did we reveal that Meghan’s was the most popular wedding dress of the last decade but new research by UK jewelry company, DC Jewellery (opens in new tab), has revealed the pair have topped a list of the world's most popular celebrity weddings of all time.

The pair comfortably topped the list, with the second most popular celebrity wedding – that of Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra - a good 600,000 searches below them.

The enduring popularity of the couple’s wedding could mean big business for Frogmore Cottage, Harry and Meghan's wedding reception venue which is planning to open to the public this summer.

Harry and Meghan tied the knot in May 2018, and it truly was a star-studded celebration.

Celebrities such as George Clooney, David and Victoria Beckham, and Serena Williams attended the wedding at St George's Chapel, and Idris Elba did a DJ set.

It would appear that, when it comes to celebrity weddings, nobody does it quite like a royal as there are two other royal, or royal adjacent, weddings on the list.

Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding came in sixth place with a combined 1.05M searches.

This is even more impressive considering the data only started collecting searches from 2018, and Kate and William were married back in 2011. 

Pippa Middleton’s wedding to James Matthews came in eight place, with over 700,000 searches.
