MUMBAI: Internet major Yahoo! has announced that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, became the most searched celebrity this year, rising up from number three in 2011.
Kate has grown into her role as future Queen, embarking on a well-received overseas tour with Prince William. She was also an
enthusiastic supporter from the stands during the Olympic and Paralympic Games in her role as ambassador.
Her high profile in the Press both in the UK and abroad combined with the furore around the topless photographs published by a French
magazine ensured her status as most searched celebrity. Prince Harry's antics in Las Vegas combined with his training to be a Apache
helicopter pilot prior to his posting in Afghanistan saw him take the number seven slot.
