Most searched for celebrity houses

With most of the world at various stages of lockdown, we’re all spending a lot more time in our homes right now. The same goes for the rich and famous, and because of social media such as Instagram Lives and TikTok, we’re seeing a lot more of their homes than normal as well.

It got us thinking – we know from our recent Rated People Home Improvement Trends Report that people get the inspiration for their own homes from a range of places, like Pinterest and magazines, but are people looking up celebrity homes too? And if so, whose houses are we searching for the most? We decided to delve into the data to find out.

We took hundreds of the most well-known people in the world, from actors to influencers, and analysed search data to see how many people were Googling their houses. The results are in.

Perhaps reflective of their recent move to the US, Harry and Meghan’s homes are the first and second most searched for, followed by those of William and Kate. Although not officially confirmed, Harry and Meghan have reportedly been staying in an LA home owned by actor and director, Tyler Perry. We do know though, that Kate and William live at both Kensington Palace in London and Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

When William and Kate have invited cameras into their apartment in Kensington Palace, we’ve seen that it’s traditionally decorated with ornate touches such as oil paintings, sculptures and decorative vases.
