Prince Harry destroyed ‘all goodwill’ Sussexes secured with ‘cringe-fest’ Spare tour


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle saw their popularity collapse both in the UK and the United States following the release of the Duke of Sussex’s biography, Spare.

“In my estimation, they had everything they wanted one month ago after the Netflix documentary.

“Their story was out and garnered massive sympathy from even the most apathetic American viewers.

“The memoir undid all that goodwill, and the press tour has been an absolute cringe-fest.”

Harry cannot be ‘trusted’ on coronation balcony as event is rich material for ‘new TV doc’

The Royal Family should deny Prince Harry access to the balcony as part of the King’s historic coronation celebrations as the Duke could use the event as fodder for commercial gain, says royal autobiographer Angela Levin. Appearing on GB News, Ms Levin said: “You cannot have someone who says he hates the UK, who loves living in the USA.”

Felton Spence also noted the couple appears to have adopted a three-pronged strategy that could see them pursue their own separate brands as well as a joint one.

She told Fox News Digital: “The book was always Harry’s thing, in the same way the podcast was always hers.

“We didn’t see him in podcast promotion. Their PR strategy has never made sense to me, but they are clearly trying to build a Harry and Meghan brand and a Harry brand and a Meghan brand.”

The couple had to restart their branding efforts after the late Queen warned the pair would no longer be able to use their Sussex Royal brand once they stepped down from the Royal Family.

After their departure, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex launched their nonprofit organisation Archewell.

Since setting up the company in 2020, the couple have struck a series of multimillion agreements with the likes of Netflix and Spotify to produce documentaries, podcasts and educational programmes.

Prince Harry also signed a multi-book agreement with Penguin Random House, with Spare believed to be the first of at least four books.

But while the Duke’s autobiography has broken records to become the fastest-selling work of nonfiction in history, the contents of the memoir have sparked speculation about the couple’s popularity.

A YouGov poll of 1,691 British adults found 68 percent of respondents had a negative opinion about the Duke – a 22 percent increase since September 22.

The poll also showed the Duke’s personal popularity rate had also dropped, with 38 percent of respondents saying they disliked him, bringing his net approval rating to -7.
