Royal author Phil Dampier claimed people in the US are getting tired of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who quit royal duties last year for a new life in California. Mr Dampier also said Britons are “fed up” with the couple’s “witterings”.
The royal expert told the Sun: “The general public in the UK is fed up with Harry and Meghan’s witterings, and I get the impression people of all ages in the US are also tiring of their constant woke outbursts.”
Mr Dampier claimed Harry, who celebrated his 37th birthday yesterday, has become “very unpopular” in the last five years.
He said: “As Harry turns 37 it’s incredible to look back five years and see how much he has changed and his life has changed.
“Five years ago he was one of, if not the most popular member of the Royal Family, regarded as a war hero, one of the lads, a good laugh and the world’s most eligible bachelor.
“Now he is married, a father, a woke warrior and, sadly, very unpopular.”
A YouGov poll of 1,667 British adults carried out from August 27-29 suggested Harry and Meghan’s popularity in the UK is falling.
As an average across all age group the poll found positive opinion of the Duke has dropped from 43 percent in April to 34 percent
Meghan has also seen favourable opinion go from 29 percent in April to 26 percent.
The Sussexes quit royal duties in March 2020 and are now living in Montecito.
The couple were yesterday unveiled on Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people of 2021.
