The results were gathered by a team at Slingo, the publication claimed, who collected data on six variables: gender, nationality, wealth, Google search popularity, most appealing royal in Google searches, and royal rank out of 10.

As per their finding, Prince Mateen led with a score of 8.95 out of 10 across all factors, closely trailed by the Prince of Wales at 8.92.

It is pertinent to note that Prince Abdul Mateen has a net worth of £3.9 billion, which makes him one of the top ten wealthiest royals.

Whereas, Prince William ranks 35th with a net worth of £79 million.

This comes amid rumours that King Charles would be forced to abdicate his throne in favour of William as he needs rest to focus on his recovery after cancer diagnosis.
