EXCLUSIVE: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been warned that their countrymen in America are “growing weary” of their constant media presence, according to a royal expert.
“Americans used to fall into three camps. They were either passionately pro-Sussex or firmly anti-Sussex, and everyone in between didn’t really care either way,” the host of the Royally Us podcast told Express.co.uk.
She continued: “Now, we’re seeing a real shift towards the negative as Americans have been barraged with Meghan and Harry’s magazine interviews, Netflix series, book, and press tour.
“The tide has shifted as Americans are now growing weary of the drama and the lack of any actual work or philanthropy.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been warned Americans are ‘growing weary’, says an expert.
Polls show the Duke and Duchess’s popularity has plummeted since last year.
Five ways Prince Harry and Meghan will be treated different to other royals at Coronation
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been invited to the King’s forthcoming Coronation in May.
If the pair do accept their invite, they are set to have a very different experience to other members of the Royal Family.
In recent months, particularly since the release of Prince Harry’s tell-all memoir Spare, polls have show Meghan and Harry’s popularity in the States dropping fast.
The couple has remained in the headlines following Spare, with comedians and talk show hosts mocking the Duke and Duchess on primetime.
A recent episode of the hit satirical US TV show South Park slammed the Meghan and Harry – in the show the Prince and Princess of Canada – something which Ms Ross said was a “great barometer” for how the US population felt about the pair.
“The recent episode of South Park was a great barometer on what people who generally don’t think about the royals think about the royals, and it’s generally not positive,” Ms Ross claimed.
In the episode, the Prince and Princess of Canada, who closely resemble Meghan and Harry, go on a “worldwide privacy tour” and demand everyone leave them alone while appearing on a talk show.
Prince Harry’s Spare was released in January and accompanied by media appearances.
Meghan and Harry have been invited to the Coronation but have not said whether they will attend.
In February, a poll for Newsweek showed that Prince Harry had a net approval rating of – 10, a drop of 38 points since December.
Similarly, the Redfield & Wilton showed Meghan to have a net approval rating of -17, a drop of 40 points.
Now focus has turned to King Charles’s Coronation and whether Meghan and Harry will attend. The two have received an invite but are said to be in negotiations with Buckingham Palace over what role they would play at the event.
