The Royal Family has had many fashionable members over the decades, including Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan Markle and Princess Diana. Official outings are usually accompanied by a flurry of interest in what the royals are wearing, and often people will look for identical styles to purchase for their own wardrobes. But according to recent analysis, some royal women are far more fashionable than others based on online search interest.
Mobile casino comparison experts TopMobileCasino analysed Google search data to find out which royal women are searched the most online.
According to the data, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge received 9,010 searches with fashion-themed terms, making her the most-searched-for royal style icon.
The Duchess of Cambridge is often praised for her polished and classic ensembles.
Kate’s outfit choices are usually kept formal to reflect her status as a working royal, but she has been known to dress up for red carpet appearances from time to time.

In recent months, Kate dazzled at the latest James Bond premiere in a golden sparkly dress from Jenny Packham.
She also re-wore an Alexandra McQueen floor-length lilac gown for the Earthshot Prize awards in October.
Following closely behind Kate in the fashion rankings is Princess Diana with 6,000 searches, with the late Princess of Wales still widely regarded as a fashion icon today.
Princess Diana became a member of the Royal Family in 1981, and her entrance to royal life was marked by a stunning ivory wedding gown by David and Elizabeth Emanuel.
Diana danced with US actor John Travolta in the velvet gown, earning it the nickname, the ‘Travolta Dress’.
In third place in the fashion rankings is Meghan Markle with 5,350 searches online.
Since joining the Royal Family in 2018, the Duchess of Sussex has become a global fashion icon.
Meghan wore a long-sleeved white gown by fashion designer Clare Waight Keller, artistic director of the fashion house Givenchy, for her wedding to Prince Harry.
She has since worn a number of iconic fashion ensembles while out on engagements.
Meghan colour-coordinated several of her outfits with Prince Harry last year when the couple visited the UK for their final round of engagements as senior royals.
Most recently, Meghan attended the Salute to Freedom Gala in New York wearing a bright red dress by Carolina Herrera.
In addition to Kate, Meghan and Diana, several other royal women are known to spark search interest in their style, including the Queen.

A spokesperson for TopMobileCasino said: “It is fascinating to see how influential each of the royal women are in terms of fashion.
“Each member of the Royal family has a distinct style with the Queen having brightly coloured dresses and Kate’s signature long skirts, however, it is surprising to see whose style resonates with the British public the most.
“It is remarkable to see that Princess Diana is the second most fashionable royal woman, despite her passing, highlighting the thought and care she put into every outfit she wore.
“As the Royal family gradually return to regular in-person engagements, it will be fascinating to see if this ranking changes.”
