Meghan and Harry’s popularity drops to low just days before Jubilee


Controversial royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s popularity is at an all-time low, according to a new poll.

YouGov poll experts asked 1,692 UK adults if they felt positive or negative about all the Royals.

And the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s popularity has plummeted ahead of the Queen’s Jubilee weekend celebrations.

While the couple will be in the UK for the events, they cannot officially attend as they are no longer classified as royals.

And while eight out of 10 people have a positive opinion of the Queen, her grandson Prince Harry holds a net score of -26, down from -25 in March.
