This Is the Most Popular Royal, According to New Poll
According to a new poll by YouGov, Prince Harry is the most popular British royal, ranking in with a 77 percent approval rating. The Queen, Daily Mail reported, comes in at a close second with a 74 percent rating and Harry’s brother, Prince William, comes in third at 73 percent.
As the YouGov survey noted, Harry’s fans ranked him so highly because he is “admirable, likable, humorous, fun-loving and genuine.” Just seven percent of those who participated in the poll reported having a negative opinion of Harry and 13 percent had a neutral one.
While Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, came in fourth place with a 64 percent approval, Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle didn’t fare as well.
Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, came in sixth in the poll with just a 55 percent approval rating, according to the Daily Mail. She ranked just behind Prince Philip, who had a 56 percent approval.
Meanwhile, Charles, the future King of England, came in seventh behind all of them with a mere 48 percent approval rating. Though, that’s still better than his wife’s, Camilla, who came in 10th with an abysmal 26 percent approval rating. But, she still performed better than the Earl and Countess of Wessex, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and also the Duke of York, who came in 15th place with 22 percent.
