William and Kate’s visit to the United States comes after two separate surveys conducted by YouGov suggested that the couple were more popular than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on both sides of the Atlantic.

The Prince of Wales registered a favourable rating of 64 percent among Americans, while he is viewed positively by 81 percent of Brits.

Kate was only narrowly behind with both groups, at 58 percent and 75 percent respectively.

However, according to YouGov, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s popularity appears to be stronger in the United States than in the United Kingdom.

Prince Harry registered a 52 percent favourable rating with Americans but his positivity figure stood at 39 percent with Brits.

William and Kate’s visit to the United States also comes just before a major publicity blitz for Harry and Meghan.

The Sussex’s Netflix documentary series is released within a fortnight and the Duke’s “intimate and heartfelt” memoir, Spare, will be published on January 10.

According to the Telegraph, royal sources have insisted that the Prince and Princess of Wales “won’t be distracted” by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex during their US visit.

A foreign office source also told the broadsheet that the visit had not been planned with the Montecito-based couple in mind.
