Ever since she started dating Prince William in 2001, Kate Middleton has been in the news. She became a media darling and celebrity with their wedding on April 29, 2011 in Westminster Abbey.
At the wedding, Kate’s younger sister, Pippa Middleton, served as the maid of honor, and gained a ton of publicity for her looks, her playfulness and the beautiful dress she wore. Pippa quickly became a media darling herself, and has been all over the news and the tabloids since the wedding. Many media outlets reported that Pippa out-shined Kate at the wedding.
Both Middleton sisters are extremely popular today, but which one is more popular? To answer that question I ran both their names through a number of Internet websties, and these are the results.
Is Pippa Middleton More Popular Today Than Kate?
Kate Middleton – 143 million results
Pippa Middleton – 44.5 million
Running Kate and Pippa’s full names through the Google Search Engine, clearly reveals that there are over three times the number of results for Kate Middleton than there are for her sister, Pippa. I don’t know for sure, but I’d guess that Pippa has gained a ton more results since the wedding, since she was far less known before she served as Kate’s maid of honor.
Kate – 8.54
Pippa – 832,00
Running their names through the Bing Search Engine reveals that Kate Middleton has over 10 times the results as Pippa does. To me, that says Bing is slower in updating their search results.
Kate – 9.8 million
Pippa – 3.43 million
After the Royal Wedding, photos were all over the Internet showing both Kate and Pippa Middleton in bikinis, and other forms of dress, or undress. Many photos featured Pippa as she went topless while adjusting her bikini. Despite the fact the many of the photos featured Pippa, Kate Middleton’s name is attached to almost three times more images on Google than Pippa’s is.
