Meghan Markle, 41, and Prince Harry, 38, seem to have had a setback after several weeks of constant media exposure. Following the Netflix documentary and the release of the Duke of Sussex’s memoir, their influence and popularity has dropped in the United States.
The stance taken by the couple has brought them rejection in the prince’s home country, but it has also affected their popularity in the former actress’s home country, something they surely did not expect.
Meghan and Harry’s popularity in the US
A poll conducted by Newsweek reveals that the country that has seen Meghan Markle grow and succeed seems to have grown tired of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and have better valued the Queen consort Camilla, 75, and Kate Middleton, 40.
Everything indicates that the general view that the American people had towards the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has changed after the publication of the book ‘Spare’. A hard blow for the couple that has always had the majority of Americans on their side.
Prince Harry’s memoirs openly exposes part of his life and how has been the relationship over time with his father and brother and the rest of the members of the British royal family.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex resigned from being an active part of the British Royal Family to have a life farther away from the media pressure they lived in the United Kingdom. The couple settled in Montecito, California to enjoy more privacy and tranquility to raise their two children, Archie and Lilibet Diana. However, since arriving in the U.S., they have done their best to make all the headlines.
For some detractors of the couple the documentary “Harry and Meghan” is about two privileged people complaining and that opinion has transcended into the book ‘Spare’.
The most critical of the Sussexes claim that the only thing they do is to pour controversial accusations about facts lived within the British Royal family to continue monetizing a speech that makes them lose followers over time.
