Prince Harry’s Popularity Declined In Recent Years

It's only been two years since the dad of two made the shock announcement, but it has already affected his popularity in Britain. According to an Ipsos survey conducted between March 24 and 25, Prince Harry is no longer as popular as he once was before he married Markle.

Out of the over 2,000 respondents that participated in the survey only 30 percent were in favor of Prince Harry. His approval rating also dropped 35 percentage points from 2018 just before his royal wedding, according to Express.

However, fewer people were in favor of Prince Harry’s wife in the survey, and this shows a 16 percent decline from her approval rating in 2018. But even though the couple’s popularity ratings were low, they were still higher compared to Prince Andrew.
