Meghan and Harry's son beats William and Kate's children to new title- 'Immense influence'


In May 2019, searches for ‘royal baby’ skyrocketed 2700 percent at the time of his birth.

It means Archie takes the title of the most searched for royal baby.

The search data for Archie knocked other royal children out of the water, causing over 1700 percent more interest than the second most influential royal birth – Princess Charlotte’s in 2015.

The eldest son of Meghan, 40, and Harry, 37, came top in a study conducted by childcare experts Little Ones London, which analysed global Google Trends data for major royal births over the past eight years.

A spokesperson for Little Ones London commented on the findings: “Every royal birth is a cause for celebration and huge excitement, and the babies of the most high-profile members of the Royal Family always have a seismic effect on the public, with millions of people desperate to know every detail.

“The fact that the birth of Archie Harrison, the first child of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, caused more online buzz than the birth of any other Royal child reveals the constant fascination that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle elicit in every realm of life.

“As the first mixed-race royal baby, the birth of Archie Harrison made absolute waves across the world, and the fact that his arrival alone caused such an explosion of online interest suggests that he could have immense influence in the future, should he choose.

“However, with the healthy attitude that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have towards their children’s right to privacy, it is likely that he will grow up well-shielded from the glare of public interest.”

Royal fans were given their first glimpse of the six-month-old in the Sussex Christmas card photo which was released earlier this month.

Princess Charlotte beat her two siblings to claim the title of the second most influential royal birth.

The now six-year-old caused searches for ‘royal baby’ to skyrocket 1049 percent in May 2015, and she generated over 250 percent more interest than the births of both George and Louis.

Prince Louis’ birth generated the third-highest interest, with searches for ‘royal baby’ exploding 762 percent at the time of his birth in April 2018.

The Cambridges youngest child, who is now three, caused searches for the term to increase over eight times the average volume.

The fourth spot in the data’s ranking went to his brother Prince George, heir to the throne of England, who caused searches for ‘royal baby’ to jump 726 percent when he was born in July 2013.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s three children were all born at the Lindo Wing in St Mary’s Hospital, London.

On all three occasions Kate, now 39, emerged within hours of each child’s arrival to present their new bundle of joy to the waiting world.

After Lilibet in fifth, are three other royal babies who were born in 2021.

Lucas Tindall, the third child of Zara and Mike Tindall caused searches for ‘royal baby’ to jump 150 percent when he was born in March 2021.

While the births of August Philip, the first child of Princess Eugenie, and Sienna Elizabeth, the first child of Eugenie’s sister Princess Beatrice, came seventh and eighth on the list.
