Kate Middleton Is the Most Stylish Royal, According to New Study

This just in: Kate Middleton is the most stylish royal. (Well, at least according to fans.)

The hair experts at Longevita recently conducted a study that analyzes “Google search data to establish which royal lady receives the highest number of combined monthly searches for fashion, hair and make-up related terms.”

Basically, researchers compiled a list of female members of the royal family and then ranked them based on the number of Google searches they received in one month. The study concluded that Middleton is the most-searched royal when it comes to her style.

The Duchess of Cambridge nabbed the top spot, with 11,700+ searches. Some of the most popular terms are fashion-related—like “Kate Middleton dresses,” which received 4,600+ monthly searches. But “Kate Middleton hair” was also a hot topic.

Meghan Markle came in second place, with 9,600+ searches. Although she has the most “make-up” searches of any royal woman, her fashion wasn’t as popular as that of Middleton.

While Princess Diana was ranked third (7,500+ searches), Queen Elizabeth claimed the number four spot (1,200+ searches). Rounding out the list were Princess Anne (420 searches), Princess Charlotte (190 searches), Countess of Wessex (180 searches), Princess Eugenie (170 searches) and Princess Beatrice (150 searches). Camilla Parker Bowles was ranked last, with only 70 monthly searches.

The news shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, especially since Middleton has made several splashy appearances over the last few months. As for her latest appearance, the Duchess of Cambridge just embarked on a two-day tour to Denmark in a bright red blazer.

Never change, Kate.
