Prince Harry branded a ‘liability’ to Royal Family as his popularity in the UK plummets


PRINCE HARRY’s popularity has deteriorated according to a new poll that sees him as a liability for the monarchy.

Now only 35 percent of those who took part in the poll see the Duke of Sussex as a positive asset for the royal family. Although he is not the least popular royal it is a shocking plummet in approval from the general public. Only eight years ago Prince Harry’s approval rating was 75 percent according to YouGov.

The least popular royal is Prince Andrew, with 80 percent of those asked in the poll conducted by The Sun believing the Duke of York is a liability.

Only four percent of those involved in the poll thought Prince Andrew was a benefit to the monarchy.

Prince Harry’s wife Meghan is also seen as a liability by over half of those who took part in The Sun poll.

The Duchess of Sussex had only a 38 percent approval rating in the poll.

Just over half, 51 percent, of those asked saw Meghan Markle as a liability.

The Queen remains the favourite amongst the UK’s population.

A total of 81 percent of those asked saw her as an asset to the monarchy.

Next in line of approval was Prince William.

He was followed by his wife Kate Middleton.

Prince Charles came in fourth place in the approval rating.

The poll was carried out this week but it is unclear how many people took part in the survey.

This news comes as the new book about Harry and Meghan’s life has had a price cut on Amazon, making some speculate the public has lost interest in the couple.

Amazon has cut the price of the book from £20 to £13.60.

The book is called Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of A Modern Royal Family.

It is due out next month and is written by Carolyn Durrand and Omid Scobie.

The authors are known to be friends with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

The book divulges details of the Megxit scenario that saw Harry and Meghan leave the UK for the US.
