Megxit blow: Third of Brits have 'no sympathy' for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – poll


And nearly half thought their controversial sit-down chat with Oprah, which aired in the UK yesterday, was not “appropriate”, according to a YouGov survey. During the 90-minute programme the couple, who fled to Hollywood to enjoy a “private life”, claimed an unnamed senior Royal Family member was concerned about how dark their son Archie might be.

This was around the same time they found out that their then-unborn child wouldn’t be given a title meaning he wouldn’t receive protection.

The Duchess said this, combined with a lack of support, left her feeling suicidal.

Archie will inherit a title when Prince Charles ascends the throne and he becomes the grandson of the monarch.

Tonight Buckingham Palace said it was “concerned” about the Duchess of Sussex’s comments on skin colour.

As allegations and speculation swirls, the poll revealed that just 23 percent of Brits think the interview was appropriate

It also revealed that three in 10 Britons have sympathy for the couple who fled the UK to Canada and then LA.

Women are twice as likely as men to have a lot of sympathy for them, it said.

Meanwhile, two-fifths of people had sympathy for senior members of the Royal Family when it comes to the situation regarding Harry and Meghan.

The Palace said the Royal Family is “saddened” to learn how challenging recent years have been for the couple.

A spokesperson said: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.

“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.”

Pressure had been growing on Buckingham Palace to respond after the Duchess – the first mixed-race member of the modern Royal Family – said Prince Harry was asked by an unnamed Royal Family member “how dark” their son Archie’s skin might be.

The prince later clarified that the comments were not made by either the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh.

The interview has prompted the biggest Royal scandal since Princess Diana spoke about the breakup of her marriage to Prince Charles.

Commentators have likened it to a “knife to the heart” of the ancient institution – which has strived to modernise its image in recent years.

But that progressiveness may all be undone by the couple’s incendiary accusations – which could fuel its critics’ claims that it has no place in modern Britain.

The snap poll, conducted before the full interview was aired, questioned 2,111 adults on Monday.
