Americans reject Prince Harry and Meghan’s story as couple’s popularity drops further
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are becoming more and more unpopular in the United States even after all their publicity stunts, interviews, shows and revelations.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s popularity has plummeted further in the eyes of the American public amid renewed Harry strikes against the Royal Family.
Harry is said to have dropped 45 points and his wife Meghan 36 points in just over a month in the US public opinion poll after the publication of the Duke’s revealing memoir ‘Spare’.
The royal couple, who were previously extremely popular in the United States, have sunk in the polls. It comes after Harry’s candid revelations and allegations about his family members, including his brother, Prince William.
Both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have seen their approval ratings drop dramatically since early December.
A new poll by Redfield & Wilton for Newsweek has found Prince Harry now had an approval rating of -7 on January 16, down from +38 on December 5.
Meanwhile, Meghan had an approval rating of -13, down from +23 on December 5.
The poll, which was made up of 2,000 US voters, marks a serious drop in ratings for the couple, who moved to the country after stepping back from royal duties in March 2020.
According to polls, women were slightly less likely to like Meghan Markle than men in the United States.
When asked if Duke Harry was right to reveal intimate conversations with family members in the memoir, 44% said he was wrong, and 26% said he was right.
However, Harry and Meghan’s approval ratings remained unchanged at 37% and 38% of Americans respectively.
