Meghan Markle already gained the royal title of Duchess of Sussex after marrying Prince Harry in 2018, but she is now the owner of a new designation. Thanks to statistics that were released by the global search platform Lyst for their The Year in Fashion report, Meghan has officially been named the Most Powerful Dresser of 2019 by the site. 

As noted by The Sun, the new findings, which compiled searches from over 104 million shoppers, showed that the former "Suits" actress' royal fashion prompted a 216% increase in terms of consumer queries for similar-looking items in 2019.

A particularly notable period was during Meghan and Harry's royal tour of Africa. Around that time, the website noted that searches for shirt dresses similar to the ones the royal wore on her trip gained a huge increase in terms of attention and curiosity from fans.

Dubbed the "Meghan Markle effect," this trend continued throughout their royal tour, as a J. Crew skirt she wore saw a 102% spike. Additionally, a Club Monaco dress witnessed a 570% increase and sold out within 24 hours.

Aside from the search tally, fans of the British royal family also have made note of other items worn by the Duchess in recent months. During her aforementioned royal tour of Africa, Meghan not only wanted to send a "message" with certain clothing items, but she also broke royal fashion rules.

Following her return from Africa and Kate Middleton's return from Pakistan with Prince William, royal watchers also made note of a few similarities in their recent wardrobes, including wearing a similar color for "strategic" reasons and how they subtly sent different messages with a recent style choice.
