London - Britain's royal wedding was the most searched for news item in the UK this year.

The nuptials of Prince William and the now Duchess Catherine on April 29 at London's Westminster Abbey beat the death of Osama Bin Laden and the London riots in the AOL Hot Searches 2011 results.

The wedding was also the third most popular new story in the US, and came out tops in Canada.

Catherine and her sister Pippa Middleton also came in third and 10th respectively as the most searched for celebrity.

However, those directly involved with the nuptials were not the only thing to be popularly sought out.

Princess Beatrice's infamous hat, which was likened to a toilet seat, topped the list for the most searched for 'memes', a concept or joke which spreads rapidly throughout the internet.
