Meghan Markle news: Duchess beats Kate Middleton as style icon in Royal Family
The Duchess of Sussex has kept a fairly low profile over the last year after stepping back as a working royal and moving to Los Angeles with Prince Harry and their son, Archie.
This hasn’t stopped interest in her looks from growing, however.
The data showed the number of searches for Meghan’s style increase by 100 percent.
Kate’s looks are still popular with searches increasing by 84 percent in the last year.
Sophie Wessex, Princess Anne and Camilla’s outfits had a bigger increase in search than both Meghan and Kate, which the report discussed.
It said: “It is likely that this is due to both Meghan and Kate consistently setting trends and being huge style icons in their own right.”
Meghan also came out top on as the most “iconic” royal for style with her looks searched thousands of times, the data showed.
It found Meghan’s outfits had been looked up a whopping 148,550 times. This was closely followed by Kate who had 145,400 searches.
“These elements may indicate that although she is a prominent public figure, she still likes to feel relaxed yet fashionable whether she’s attending an event or enjoying a family day out.”
The mother-of-three is also happy to rewear her favourite looks on multiple occasions.
Natasha added: “Kate appears to have understated confidence in her style choices and chooses pieces that represent her position as a positive role model.
She also isn’t afraid to re-wear statement pieces.”
The royal line of succession – who outranks who?
The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.
It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.
Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on 26 March 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.
Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.
The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.
Prince Charles, 72, is currently first-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 38, his oldest son.
Then comes Prince William’s children, George, seven, Charlotte, five, and Louis, two, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 36. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May 2019.
