Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Failing at Their Own Game as They Receive More Reputation Damage Compared to the Royal Family

Published 01/23/2023, 9:30 AM EST

Following the entry of Meghan Markle, an American actress, into the Royal family, people developed a newfound interest in royalty. The monarchy of Britain had always been in the media but never like this. If Meghan Markle’s entry brought attention, then Meghan Markle’s exit alongside her husband, Prince Harry, was a whole another level. The Megxit to date remains of the most discussed topics of all time. Especially since  Meghan Markle and Prince Harry decided that exiting was not enough and that they wanted to let the world know of the injustice, they had suffered.

And saying all ears were perked would be an understatement, considering how both the Oprah interview as well as the documentary brought in hoards of viewers. However, the release of the memoir may have just been the last piece that made the Jenga fall because Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are losing relevance not just in the United Kingdom but also in their present empire, the United States.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry suffer a dip in popularity

There was no hint of doubt in the fact that Markle and Prince Harry got more attention than the Prince of Princess of Wales in their time with the royal family. And the same followed after their exit. When Markle and Prince Harry talked about how the Royal family left them without security and at risk of danger after their exit, many sympathized with them. Especially with Markle, who claimed that the Royal family was concerned with the color of her future baby. This sympathy-turned-likeness helped Markle and Prince Harry to be among some of the most popular people in the world.

Then came the Netflix documentary where Markle also admitted that she was “suicidal,” and Prince Harry opened up about not being a good enough husband for Markle.

And this sympathy, ironically paired with an extent of relatability to the couple, took them further up in popularity. However, the release of Prince Harry’s anticipated memoir Spare proved to be a block in this road.

An Ipsos Mori poll showed that Kate Middleton and Prince William have emerged more popular than the couple. The memoir took no time to become best-selling but also took no time to be deemed a lie.
