But when you think about it, it makes perfect sense

Google is a powerful tool, and we were just wondering who the most googled people were this past year. Well, the most googled actress of 2016 probably isn’t who you expect — but it makes perfect sense. Refinery29 filled us in. Hint: The Royal Family.

If you guessed Meghan Markle from Suits, you guessed correctly.

Yes, we’re talking the same Meghan Markle who’s dating Prince Harry. The news about the couple started coming out in October. And since we all care a lot about the prince’s well-being — after all, dating a prince is a *huge* deal — it’s no wonder people googled his significant other, right?

Right now, this is the closest we’re going to get to seeing British-related posts by Markle — this Instagram post is from a couple of weeks ago, when her dog was wearing this Union Jack sweater. Awwww.

More Insta posts, please — and with Prince Harry, too!

In a way though, good for them for keeping their relationship as private as they possibly can. Just think of your own social media feeds and what happens when you post a pic of you and your new bae. Then, magnify that by a million. Or perhaps a billion if you’re a member of The Royal Family.

However, one photo has recently come out on social media of the couple. On December 14th, Markle and Prince Harry went to see a play on London’s West End, as seen in this photo from The Sun. The play? The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at the Gielgud Theatre.

This was the first time Markle and Prince Harry were out together as a couple, according to People, although they were also seen together on December 12th, shopping for a Christmas tree at Pines and Needles in London.

Ah-ha, the plot thickens. But again, as much as we really want to see more pictures of them together, we also respect their privacy.

So while Markle and Prince Harry are busy this holiday season not posting pictures onto social media, we wish them nothing but the best. And we’ll probably be adding to the Googling-Markle tally as we check social for updates - just in case.
