Kate beats Meghan Markle to coveted crown after wowing at premiere


The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, was named the most fashionable royal woman of 2021 after a dress she wore to the James Bond No Time To Die premiere was revealed as the most popular royal outfit of the year in a recent study. Google searches for her look were 1,328 percent above the annual average search volume for royal outfits.

The mother-of-three donned a Jenny Packham dress for the red carpet event in September.

Kate wore a dazzling gold embellished floor-length gown that featured a twisted waist, a plethora of gold sequins, a cape and extravagant shoulder detail.

The Duchess wore her hair in a chic updo style and accessorised the dress with gold disc earrings.

Kate attended the premiere alongside her husband Prince William, 39, Prince Charles, 73, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 74.

Meghan Markle, 40, had the second most popular outfit in the study.

After stepping away from royal duties in March, she and her husband Prince Harry, 37, participated in a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The Duchess of Sussex’s most popular look was the floral Giorgio Armani maxi dress she wore for the interview, which made headlines across the globe in March.

The dress was searched for 1,014 percent more than an average for searches for royal outfits.

Kate’s £195 bohemian-style floral Ghost maxi dress resulted in a 342 percent rise in searches above the average search volume for royal outfits.

While the Duchess of Sussex claimed the fifth spot with her showstopping plunging Carolina Herrera red dress, worn at the Salute to Freedom Gala in November.

Meghan’s dress saw interest for royal outfits explode 285 percent.

The research to establish which royal outfit of 2021 made the most impact was conducted by betting specialists SportsPub, who analysed Google Trends data.

Commenting on the study, a spokesperson from SportsPub said: “This data reveals that Catherine relies on simple, statement pieces that can stand the test of time, upholding her status as a style icon.

“It is also fascinating to see the influence that Meghan holds on the fashion industry, with very few public appearances this year still creating a major impact based on the pieces she wears.”
