According to Gizmodo, it’s been 11 days since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot at Westminster Abbey. This was apparently more than enough time for the gang at Pornhub to crunch some numbers and see how the Royal Wedding affected our masturbation habits.

Of course, once the Royal Wedding was over, it was once again time to start wanking it. Searches for Meghan Markle went up…wait for it…2,812 percent after the ceremony.
