A recent poll from YouGov published in The Times shows that almost half of the British public think Prince Harry should have the Duke of Sussex title stripped away after his Netflix series with Meghan Markle was released. This poll involved the opinion of 1,672 adults and resulted in 44% of viewers believing Prince Harry should have his title removed.
The Netflix Series focuses on Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as they discuss their experiences with the rest of the Royal family.
Rather than the series gaining support for Harry and Meghan, it increased support for Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Prince and Princess of Wales. The series only involved 17% more of the British public experiencing more sympathy for Harry and Megan.
Some speculate that the public thinks better of Will and Kate because of their stoic behavior. While Harry and Meghan go to the public, those staying quiet seem to receive more support. They aren’t revealing secrets or discussing feuds within the family, potentially boosting the public’s opinion of them.
