PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle’s popularity with Brits has plunged to a record low, a damning poll has revealed.
According to a YouGov survey, only 26 per cent of Brits “favour” Meghan while 65 per cent dislike her, bringing her net approval rating to -39 per cent.

For Harry, just 34 per cent say they like him compared to 59 per cent who don’t, taking the prince’s net favourability rating to -25 per cent.
Harry’s rating has tumbled 25 points since April, while Meghan’s fell nine points during the same span of time.
Pollsters pinned the couple’s falling ratings on their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March “as well as poor responses to their statements surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and the withdrawal from Afghanistan”.
YouGov surveyed 1,667 UK adults ranging from teens to seniors.
The 18-24 demographic was split over Harry, giving him a 47 per cent positive and 44 per cent negative rating while Meghan received a 50/40 split.
Pensioners were the harshest, with just 13 to 18 per cent of over 65s saying they approved of the couple.
But Harry and Meghan can rejoice in one fact: that Prince Andrew has by far the lowest approval rating of any royal in the survey.
