The royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was a few weeks ago and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. Millions of people throughout the Commonwealth tuned in to see the newest member of the royal family while we Americans were trying to figure out which episode of Suits we were watching.

News coverage of the royal family in the States can be found almost exclusively in People magazine in between Rachel Ray’s recipe for bread pudding and pictures of people who recently lost 100 pounds. Personally, I’m very proud that an actress from a cable TV show is now among England’s most socially elite. I also appreciate the pageantry, flashy costumes, and celebrity cameos.

The royal wedding was kind of like WrestleMania without any submission holds which is why I stopped my usual Pornhub viewing to watch. As it would turn out, I wasn’t alone.

Always on top of the impact on historical events on internet porn traffic, the Dukes and Duchesses of statistics at Pornhub Insights monitored the fluctuations of traffic on the internet’s favorite adult website in order to see how the royal wedding effected it.

Across the United Kingdom Pornhub traffic dropped by as much as 21% during the wedding. Anglophiles around the world also tuned causing an overall drop of 10%, including 6% of Americans. Considering it was on here on the west coast at 4am, that’s fairly impressive.

Looking at statistics from individual countries, it’s curious that France experienced the greatest overall drop in traffic during the wedding. The wedding was most popular throughout countries in Europe, but 16% of Canadians also quit watching porn to watch it. This was either because they wanted to see the son of the Queen of Canada get married, or because Suits is filmed in Toronto and they’re trying to claim Meghan Markle as their own.

After the wedding was over peopled turned to the most trusted source on the internet for more information on the royal family.

Searches for porn containing the word “royal” increased by as much as 1865% in the hours after the ceremony. With all the sexy celebrities from both sides of the pond in attendance, it’s not hard to see why people were left wanting a little bit more.
