#5, Her Majesty the Queen

Her Majesty the Queen was ranked fifth on the list, with an average monthly search volume of 7,700. Given that her wedding was immediately after WWII, Queen Elizabeth II had to acquire her dress material using rationing tokens when she married Prince Philip. However, that did not stop her from wearing a dress that was nothing less than spectacular.

Princess Beatrice’s wedding dress was searched in the most at number four on the list for an intriguing reason. She made history as the first royal bride to wear a gown that had previously been worn by the Queen. She glided down the aisle in a classic Norman Hartnell gown. When the Queen married Prince Philip, her spouse of nearly seventy years, in 1947, the outfit was estimated to be worth roughly £30,000.
