MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry have swiped a new crown from Prince William and Kate, according to a new study.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been crowned the most photogenic royal couple in a new study. Photography experts Printique analysed Instagram hashtags for 24 of the most popular royal couples in the world, in order to discover which was the most Instagrammable royal couple of all time.

The Sussexes boasted nearly seven times more hashtags than the average for all royal couples on the list.

The couple stepped back from royal duties in 2020, and live in the US with their two children – Archie, two, and Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana who turns one in June.

Meghan and Harry were also recently named by Time magazine as among the world’s 100 most influential people which commended the couple for being active humanitarians, and said: “they turn compassion into boots on the ground through their Archewell Foundation.”

A spokesperson for Printique commented on the findings: “Royal couples are a source of fascination all over the world, and this data shows just how much online influence they can command.

“Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are an absolute global sensation, from their charity work and commitment to making the world a better place to their fashion sense and style.

“The fact that this Royal duo pulls in the most Instagram hashtags combined is a testimony to their powerful influence all around the world.”

Ranking in second for the most photogenic royal couple was Prince William, 39, and his wife Kate, 40.
