YouGov Poll: British Public Turns Against Meghan, Harry Following Racism Allegations

YouGov Poll: British Public Turns Against Meghan, Harry Following Racism Allegations

UKs Daily Telegraph: “Public opinion of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has fallen to a record low, with attitudes towards Prince Harry more negative than positive for the first time.”

Public opinion in the United Kingdom has turned against Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle after they made racism allegation against the Royal Family. The popularity of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has now dropped to their lowest level ever after their highly-publicized interview with Oprah Winfrey last weekend, the latest YouGov poll shows.

Speaking to Oprah, Meghan made bombshell allegations that painted the British press and the monarchy as bigoted and racist. Meghan and Harry made conflicting comments in the interview about an unnamed member of the Royal Family raising ‘concerns’ about their mixed-race child’s skin tone.

The Buckingham Palace has denied Meghan and Harry’s outlandish allegations, with Prince William pointedly telling reporters on Thursday: “We’re very much not a racist family.”

The British public seems to have sided with the Queen and the rest of the Royal Family in face of Meghan’s claims and grievances. “Public opinion of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has fallen to a record low, with attitudes towards Prince Harry more negative than positive for the first time,” the UK’s Daily Telegraph reported on Friday.

Prince Harry’s popularity took a big hit, with 48 percent of British people viewing him negatively for the first time. Meghan, who already had a net negative rating in the UK, is now disliked by 58 percent of the public, the poll found.

Reuters, on Friday, reported the finding of the YouGov poll:

The popularity of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan has tumbled in Britain and has never been lower following their explosive interview with U.S. chat show host Oprah Winfrey, according to a poll on Friday. (…)

The tell-all interview has plunged the 1,000-year-old monarchy into its greatest crisis this century, and according to a YouGov poll, the standing of the two royals has also taken a big hit in the aftermath.

It found 48% percent of the 1,664 respondents had a negative attitude of Harry compared to 45% with a positive view, the first time his net favourability rating had been negative, and a fall of 15 points from a week earlier.

Meanwhile, only three in 10 people had a positive view of Meghan, while 58% had a negative opinion.

As with other polls conducted since the interview, there was a divide between generations, with a majority of those aged 18 to 24 liking Harry and Meghan and those over 65 overwhelmingly having negative feelings towards them.

The only other member of the family to see their popularity fall was Harry’s father, heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles. The survey said 42% now had a negative view of him compared to 49% with a positive opinion. (…)

That compared to the 94-year-old queen, who was liked by 80%, and Harry’s elder brother and his wife Kate, who were popular with three-quarters of respondents.

Meghan and Harry are apparently upset at Buckingham Palace for clipping some of their privileges after they abandoned their royal duties and moved to California. The couple moved into a Beverly Hills mansion amid attempts to kick-start Meghan’s failing acting career.

The reason Meghan is increasingly disliked by the British public has lot to do with her divisive left-wing politics. She has shown very little regard for royal traditions and British public sentiment. The the newly-minted Duchess publicly supported the pro-EU Remain campaign ahead of the 2016 Brexit referendum. “If EU leave me now, you take away the biggest part of me,” she posted on Instagram.

She has also been a fierce critic of President Donald Trump, attacking him as “misogynistic” and “divisive.” The couple effectively endorsed Democratic candidate Joe Biden ahead of the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

Not surprisingly, President Biden’s administration came out in support of Meghan and Harry for venting their grievances. White House press secretary Jen Psaki praised the woke Royal couple jet-setting between the Buckingham Palace and Beverly Hills for “sharing their own story and their own struggles.”

“For anyone to come forward and speak about their own struggles with mental health and tell their own personal story, that takes courage. And that’s certainly something the president believes,” Psaki said.

TV host Piers Morgan on Meghan: “I don’t believe almost anything that comes out of her mouth.”

The look from the queen after she spends $25million on your grandson’s wedding and his new wife starts bitching about her on Oprah

    Screw the British! To accept these douche bag Royals that claim the “Divine Right of Kings” as somehow “superior” is a travesty. The Brits should just get rid of them and become a Republic. These so called Royals are all dysfunctional, everyone of them.

      Brave Sir Robbin in reply to audax. | March 14, 2021 at 2:15 pm

      I once asked a Brit why they maintained a king or queen. He replied, “We do so to ensure the job is already taken, and no one else need apply.”

“…‘concerns’ about their mixed-race child’s skin tone.”

Horse crap. I think the only real concern is “Who’s the father?”

Meghan comes from and is steeped in the most racist group in America today. It appears that she may well be cut from the same cloth as Kamala.

The only good that may come from this is that the British may now be starting to understand how crass American black culture has become.

I wonder if Harry married her because of her Negro bloodlines, just to rub grandma and grandpa’s face in the situation?

The Queen was smart to act before the interview aired to strip them of the honorary patronages she had given them. It would have been much more difficult in the aftermath. Although I have a feeling that most of it was what Charles wanted to happen, and the father-son relationship is incredibly damaged. Archie and his sister will be eligible for titles when Charles becomes king; the Queen gave William’s kids Charlotte and Louis titles by letters patent, otherwise they’d have been in the same position. None of the other royal great-grandkids have titles, and Edward and Anne declined them for their own kids.

But IMO it was the case that they, and especially her, wanted to have the titles and the perks and and the privileges while being activists at a level never seen before, and they and Buckingham Palace could not agree to an acceptable arrangement for both parties that allowed them to engage in activism without causing upset. The way the Trumps were treated when they visited the UK made it pretty clear members of the Royal Family didn’t like them a whole lot, but also made it clear Meghan was going to be a problem with her outright loathing of them.

I also think that some of the dislike for those two is because people do not appreciate having the “racist” moniker thrown at them by fans of theirs. Are there people who dislike her because she is mixed race? Absolutely there are. But it’s also possible to have a negative opinion of a person without caring about their skin tone.

    Brave Sir Robbin in reply to p. | March 13, 2021 at 12:54 pm

    I don’t like her because she publicly dumps on her family. She not only does this to her new family, but to her paternal family, as well.

    Extremely self-absorbed while thinking she is the victim while trashing the people who should be closest to her. And this anonymous racists bombs placed all her husband’s family under suspension, and so was a slander against them all.

    And Harry. How pathetic he is. Allowing and even enabling his wife to attack his family.

    These things are private, and should stay private. And if you must go public against your family, then do so with specificity. Identify the offending party.

    Meghan Markle is untrustworthy of confidence, fidelity, or loyalty. A horrid person.

      Lucifer Morningstar in reply to Brave Sir Robbin. | March 13, 2021 at 4:29 pm

      . . . but to her paternal family, as well.

      Oh please, her “paternal family” are just as annoyingly dysfunctional as she is. From what I gather Mommy and Daddy drove the royal family and the wedding planners nuts in the lead up to the marriage ceremony.

        Brave Sir Robbin in reply to Lucifer Morningstar. | March 13, 2021 at 6:16 pm

        OK, they are nuts. Don’t go out and whine about them in public. I do not think it is appropriate for children to piss all over their parents publicly, or vice versa. Do wonder the family is difunctional.

        It does not matter, but I told people it was a mistake bringing this dysfunctionality into royal family. This goes for any family.

        I stand by my assertion. Meghan Markle is untrustworthy of confidence, fidelity, or loyalty. I can see why she is attracted to Harry. He is an utter weakling she can completely manipulate and dominate and has wealth and prestige she can shamelessly exploit. She’s just too stupid and dysfunctional to do it well

Billionaire celebrity interviews millionaire Royals to discuss their oppression.

    Brave Sir Robbin in reply to ghost dog. | March 13, 2021 at 12:56 pm

    About sums it it..

    I think Harry and Meghan were hoping Oprah would give them new cars.

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to ghost dog. | March 13, 2021 at 4:35 pm

    Billionaire celebrity interviews soon to be bankrupt (no royal duties no pay from the Queen) royals nobodies to discuss just how hard it is they have it. Oh and poor widdle Archie, ain’t a prince. Certainly ain’t black. LoL

    Can’t wait until they both just fade into well deserved trailer trash obscurity.

    Harry: Yeah Archie, I remember when I was a somebody and lived in an actual palace in London before your mother and I screwed it all up for you. Knew the Queen and everything. Ah, those were the days.

      Brave Sir Robbin in reply to Lucifer Morningstar. | March 13, 2021 at 6:19 pm

      “Can’t wait until they both just fade into well deserved trailer trash obscurity.”

      Unfortunately I do not see this happening anytime soon. I understand Harry and Meghan are scheduled for a ribbon cutting ceremony at a new Burger King in Irvine.

No one has ever given a reasonable answer to the question, “Who are these people and why would I care?”

    Morning Sunshine in reply to irv. | March 13, 2021 at 1:09 pm

    Who are these people?
    These people – like it or not – do have an extreme amount of money and a LOT of international social clout. That means that they can and DO exert influence on policies. That is one reason different charities want them as “sponsors” or spokesmen: Princess Diana walking through a landfill was a poignant visual of how dangerous they are for the innocent.

    Why should you care?
    mostly to see what causes are being touted as important these days; a kind of situational awareness. Also, Britain, after our growing pains of leaving the nest, has been one of our longest and most stable allies. H&M rocking the royal boat may lead to great instability there.

    Just my thoughts 🙂

      True, but either do it according to the protocol you need to follow or quit and do it on your own. They wanted one foot in and one foot out, and had already proven themselves to be a diplomatic problem during last year’s election. Grandma had to end up making the decision for them. I think Wuflu had a role in it too. He’s only going to go back there when necessary and I highly doubt she’ll be inclined even after travel restrictions lift.

      BTW, did you mean minefield instead of landfill?

    (Read in Joe Biden’s voice) C’mon, man! (/RiJBv) You know perfectly well who they are.

    And, as far as us peons and/or wretched peasants are concerned in this orchestrated perpetual highly public display of self-entitlement and pathological avarice goes, it’s not so much about our “caring” as it is about our morbid curiosity. Pretty much everybody loves to watch a train wreck as it happens 😉

The British papers reported the truth about why Harry’s son didn’t get the title prince: it’s because of royal protocols, that have been in place for decades, that say that except for presumptive heirs (like William’s first-born child George), great-grandchildren of the monarch don’t get the title. Sons and grandsons of the monarch may be awarded the title, but not great-grandsons. Princess Anne’s and Prince Andrew’s grandchildren also didn’t get titled as “prince” and “princess” for this same reason. It never had anything to do with race or skin color, despite Harry and Meghan’s nasty insinuations.

When Elizabeth dies and Charles becomes king, he can give Archie the title if he chooses, but hopefully he will decline. Harry and Meghan’s despicable race-baiting tactics should have consequences. They deliberately lied to the public in order to stir up racial resentment. They are awful people.

    They’ve been in place since 1917, and from what I understand it was done because Victoria and Albert had a good number of children who had a good number of children who had a good number of children, etc and QEII’s grandfather decided there needed to be a limit on who got titled.

    But you bring up something important: Why give an HRH title to someone who is not going to be a working royal unless something dreadful happens to his and her uncle and cousins? Sheesh, Andrew’s daughters only have titles because he was insistent on them and he’s his mom’s favorite kid.

    Milhouse in reply to Observer. | March 13, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Forget great-grandchildren. Grandchildren don’t automatically get them either. Anne’s kids are commoners, despite being the Queen’s grandchildren. Edward’s kids only have titles because he does (he and Sophie prefer not to use the kids’ titles, but they have them and when they’re old enough to make their own decisions they may decide to use them). Margaret’s kids only got titles from their father.

Brave Sir Robbin | March 13, 2021 at 12:59 pm

“But you bring up something important: Why give an HRH title to someone who is not going to be a working royal…”

Especially since they seem to want the title for simple reasons of vanity and monetary profit.

Many of Markle’s claims are provably lies, e.g., her passport was taken and she effected was held prisoner by the RF. She was such a prisoner that she made official trips, had a long honeymoon (no doubt paid for by Ginger Boy Toy’s daddy), came to the U.S. for her baby shower and U.S. Open, visited friends in Canada. She and GBT are learning a harsh lesson: If you don’t work, you don’t get paid and you don’t keep the perks. (And just who paid for their multimillion-dollar mansion, the daddy he hates or Oprah?)

Sounds like a Jussie Smollett moment.

So, they will not kneel. Good for them. Allegations of diversity require extraordinary proof.

[…] Harry and Meghan are not likable. The whining, the narcissism, the preening, the desperateness, the bowing and scraping before the altar of woke. He comes off as henpecked and weak. She comes off as mercenary. They both lack charisma and humor and any kind of appreciation for their massive privilege. They come off as whiny, pretentious, manipulative, and self-involved to the point of blindness. […]

Harry and Meghan appear to be appealing to the worst people in the world. […] The duo’s goal wasn’t so much to appeal to the masses but to appeal to the world’s wretched elites who consider self-confession, narcissism, race-baiting, and playing the victim the coin of their appalling realm. By behaving in such an appalling way, Harry and Meghan were signaling to the corporate media, Big Tech, and left-wing Hollywood — Hey, we are one of you. Let us in. These days, if you successfully do get in, it doesn’t matter if we the people loathe you — you are in and the game will be rigged inside the velvet bubble to ensure an endless supply of unearned riches, awards, and boot-licking.

John Nolte also did a great write-up on this same topic over at Breitbart. No holds barred brutal stuff, but it all makes perfect sense and he hits the nail on the head, repeatedly. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/03/13/why-meghan-harry-show-backfired-harry-meghan/

The impression I get is that the royal family never had an issue with the color of MM’s skin, but their concerns were that she was a gold digger and publicity junkie whose presence would cause turmoil within the royal family. Hey, wait a minute….

    Brave Sir Robbin in reply to Idonttweet. | March 13, 2021 at 7:18 pm

    They need a new James Bond movie called “Gold Digger” where our secret agent hero saves the realm from Meghan Markle.

British royalty are expected to “keep a stiff upper lip” under trying circumstances. They are also expected to abhor washing the family’s dirty laundry in public. The Oprah interview violated these traditional expectations, disappointing the monarchy’s most ardent supporters.

I’m not surprised. I always liked Harry, until he fell in with this creature. I even tried liking her at first, for his sake, but she made it too difficult.

And it has nothing to do with her colour. Or her children’s potential colour.

So Harry and his Ugly Gold Digging Missile Twister go on international TV with The Richest Racist Okra and trash the Royal Family and accuse them of racism because they wouldn’t break the rules for the Ugly Gold Digging Missile Twister to feel special and it backfired on them?

My response; “LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL! GOOD!”

Just give it a couple of years when the money starts to run out and the Ugly Gold Digging Missile Twister divorces the Princling and takes what’s left of the money and runs. Who wants to be that Harry becomes much more Family Oriented?

A distant British reltive dubbed them Whinger and Ginger.

Still, I respect Harry for having done his duty as a military man serving his country.
