Prince Harry and Meghan’s ratings plummet while Queen remains most popular royal

The Queen remains the country's most popular royal while Prince Harry and Meghan's ratings continue to nosedive, according to a new survey.

The results came after members of the public were asked about their favourite royal following Prince Philip's funeral.

After Harry and Meghan's interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, their ratings plummeted but the trend has continued and their likeability factor is now even worse, reports The Sun.

According to pollsters, YouGov Harry's popularity has dropped a further three points since the Oprah interview and Meghan's has fallen five points.

Harry was once seen as one of the most popular individuals in the Royal Family the decline of his currency has been startling.

Brothers Prince Edward and Prince Charles have seen their popularity rise since March 12 in light of their responses to Prince Philip's deaths

After the Oprah interview, Charles' ratings dropped by eight points to 49 per cent. Criticisms from Harry, such as his father reportedly not taking his calls, had a momentary effect on Charles's ratings but he has recovered strongly.

Unsurprisingly the Queen is the most popular royal with her ratings rocketing from 80 per cent to 85 per cent.

Prince William and Kate are looked upon extremely favourably by the public with three-quarters of Britons giving them the thumbs up.

79 per cent of Britons hold a negative opinion of Prince Andrew with only 10 per cent seeing him in a positive light.

The data which is based on 1,700 Britons between April 21 and 22 also revealed that 43 per cent of those polled have a positive opinion of Prince Harry while 49 per cent regard him negatively.
