Between the Royal Wedding in May and announcing her pregnancy in October, it's been quite the year for "American Princess" Meghan Markle. From monitoring her maternity fashion to keeping up with her adorable mother Doria Ragland, people are interested in all things related to the Duchess of Sussex.
Google recently released their annual ‘Year in Search’ reports and to our surprise, Meghan hasn't just topped the charts globally - but she's also the most-searched person in the UAE. Following her was Nick Jonas, Logan Paul, Sylvester Stallone, Freddie Mercury and former Harper’s Bazaar cover star Sonam Kapoor.
The search volume on Meghan's name increased tenfold when she tied-the-knot with Prince Harry with the Royal Wedding being the top-trending news of the year. Since then, the internet has obsessed with her every move - tracking her fashion choices, royal protocol mishaps, and more. The Meghan Markle Effect has become particularly poignant, designer websites supposedly started crashing after Meghan stepped out wearing one of their pieces.
