Harry and Meghan generated five times as many references in mainstream and online media as William and Kate in September.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex triggered 151,030 references to them across mainstream and social media, analysis by data intelligence agency Zignal Labs suggests.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were mentioned 27,424 times from September 1 to October 6, the company found.

By contrast, the Sussexes were talked about more on their single busiest day alone, when they earned 28,900 references at the start of their tour to New York on September 23.

However, while Meghan and Harry created five and a half times as much discussion, William and Kate were referenced more positively on both sides of the Atlantic.

American mainstream media outlets were 65 percent positive and 13 percent negative about William and Kate, compared to 44 percent positive and 28 percent negative about Harry and Meghan.
