It's been the year of Meghan Markle. The Duchess of Sussex has captivated audiences, and searches, with her wedding, baby on the way, and style evolution as she makes her first steps as a new royal. She's been so popular that, according to Google, she was the most-searched person this year around the world.

I'd pretend to be surprised, but my last Google searches include Meghan Markle dark nail polish, Meghan Markle body shimmer, and Meghan Markle Kate Middleton twinning. So I might be single-handedly bumping up those numbers, is all I'm saying.

The fourth most-searched news item was the royal wedding, and Meghan also showed up in number six of the top searches from all of Google. In a year that's been particularly stressful, apparently, we've all gotten joy from Meghan and Harry's life—and, to be honest, a little bit of friendly gossip about why they're moving away from Kensington Palace.


A few other unsurprising top names: Demi Lovato is the second most-searched person in the world, and the most-searched in the U.S., Khloé Kardashian is the fifth most-searched person globally, Hailey Baldwin (now Hailey Bieber) ranks eighth, and Cardi B 10th. Topping the most-searched movies is one of this year's most female-centric sci-fi films, Black Panther.
