On the very same day that their happy engagement news was announced, searches for the name "Meghan Markle" increased by 2208 per cent on PORNHUB.

In today's batch of very creepy news, we've managed to find the one thing that taints the handsome, mushy, loved-up glory that was the engagement announcement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Speaking at an event in NY on Monday, the actor, who plays the Duke of Edinburgh in the Netflix drama, said he pities the bride-to-be because "life as she knows it is gone". Life as she knows it is gone.

However, while Matt was rather sympathetic to Meghan's plight, his co-star Claire Foy, who plays Queen Elizabeth on the Netflix drama, believed the royal engagement - and in particular, Meghan's divorcee status - signalled a change in the times. "I suppose you could say they have suffered a similar tragedy with the loss of their mother, so they know what we are doing here", Henry's mother, Claire, told the Evening Standard in 209.

However, avoiding being too much of a Debbie Downer, the former Doctor Who star added: 'But hey, she's marrying the prince of Britain - how exciting for her'.

The first series of "The Crown" saw Prince Philip resent being forced to stop working as a naval officer when he married Queen Elizabeth, with the royal also depicted as being unhappy with living in his wife's shadow and not being allowed to give his children his surname.

Pornhub reports that most royal searches are contained to parody characters - like Princess Leia and Princess Peach - but this royal announcement broke all their royal-search records, seeing huge increases in searches for Meghan from the US, UK, Spain, Germany and Belgium in particular. And they really have.

The Duchess of Cambridge's mother Carole Middleton and sister Pippa Middleton also attended the service, with the pair being regulars at the concert having attended since it began 15 years ago.
