UNITED KINGDOM.– According to the group YouGov, the “favorability” rating of the prince harry and meghan markle has fallen to a new low, following the record of 1,667 adults in the United Kingdom aged between teenagers and older people.
Markle 26 per cent of the British population like it and 65 per cent dislike it, which equates to a net approval rating of -39 per cent. TO Harry 34 percent like it and 59 percent dislike it, leaving it with a net preference of -25 percent.
The approval rating of Harry fell the most precipitously (25 points) since April, while that of Meghan it fell only nine points in the same time frame.
The age of the respondents was a particularly revealing divide: the demographic of the 18 to 24 years is almost evenly divided over Harry (47 percent positive and 44 percent negative) with a wider approval margin for Meghan (50 percent to 40 percent).
But the retiree crowd has a very different view of the Dukes of Sussex, with only 13-18 percent of people in 65 years or more seeing them in a positive way.
They are not the least accepted
Nevertheless, Harry and meghan can console themselves with one fact: the black sheep of the family, the prince Andrew, has by far the lowest approval rating of any royal questioned about in the survey, with 83 percent of respondents disliking and a bottom-scratching six percent responding favorably. .
Elsewhere in the actual classification: the Queen Isabel is still the most adored royalty, with an 80 percent favorability rating, with the prince william and his wife Catherine Middleton very close to her, with a 78 and 75 percent approval rating respectively.
As in other parts of life, Prince carlos got a tepid response, with an approval rating of 54 percent.
YouGov highlighted the drop in the ratings of Harry and Meghan in his explosive March interview with Oprah Winfrey, “as well as the bad responses to his statements about the pandemic of COVID-19 and the withdrawal of Afghanistan“.
