Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are taking significant steps to alter their lives and fate.
Being famous and being popular are not the same thing. Being famous means being known by the public, whereas being popular means having people’s approval.
In the case of Prince Harry and Meghan, the couple reportedly no longer wishes to be the most unpopular.
ITN royal editor Tim Ewart recently appeared for an interview in the Sunday episode of “Paul Murray Live” and discussed the Sussexes’ attempts to gain popularity through their projects. However, he added that the couple does not want to irritate members of the royal family.
Prince Harry and Meghan are both working on memoirs and Netflix shows.
“Whatever their position about ever rejoining the royal family which I think personally is quite questionable. They clearly don’t want to become any more unpopular with the Royal Family and the British public than they already are.”
YouGov’s Quarter 2 2022 results revealed the Most Popular Royal Member, and the percentage reveals the number of people who have a favorable opinion of the specific member.
Queen Elizabeth II is ranked first, with a popularity rating of 75%. Catherine, Prince William, Princess Anne, Zara Phillips, King Charles, Queen Consort Camilla, and the Countess and Earl of Wessex are next on the list.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Meghan ranked 11th and 14th, with 34 percent and 25 percent popularity, respectively.
The royal commentator’s statement came after Prince Harry and Meghan were chastised for attempting to outshine the royal family by sharing their One Young World Manchester 2022 photos.
In one photo, the couple stands next to each other while they are holding hands in the other.
According to Daniela Elser of news.com.au, the photos revealed Prince Harry and Meghan’s “embarrassing habit” of trying to divert attention away from themselves. They posted the photos 48 hours after Buckingham Palace released the first official photograph of King Charles III, Queen Consort Camilla, Prince William, and Catherine, Princess of Wales.
According to the author, the quasi-official engagements only demonstrated how hard the two had worked to live royal lives outside of the monarchy.
