Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Losing Approval With This Key Group

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have lost a lot of support from a group that previously stood in their corner.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Losing Approval With This Key Group

The hits keep coming for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Just a few weeks after a UK media watchdog found in Piers Morgan’s favor concerning his controversial comments following the royal couple’s Oprah Winfrey interview, a new poll has revealed that the Sussexes’ approval rating is at its lowest point. Their approval ratings have been steadily declining since January 2020, but this latest dip comes courtesy of a group that had long been their biggest supporters. 

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle’s Dismal Approval Ratings Worseen

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may have moved to sunny California, but their reputation back in rainy Britain is as frosty as ever. The two have suffered yet another drop in approval ratings in the UK according to pollsters YouGov, via Newsweek. Surprisingly, the biggest drop for the couple came from a group that had previously been locked down: young adults. 

In the days after their joint interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, polls showed that 59 percent of 18-24-year-olds supported Harry while Markle enjoyed a 55 percent approval from the same group. Only 28 percent disapproved of Harry while 32 percent said they viewed Markle negatively. That still left the couple with a net positivity of +31 and +23 percent respectively. Those numbers have since dropped dramatically. 

The latest poll shows that Harry’s positive approval rating in the group has dropped to about 47 percent while his negativity rating has risen significantly to 44 percent. Markle is reportedly viewed positively by 50 percent of the 18-24-year-old crowd and is viewed negatively by 40 percent. Harry’s net approval rating among the group now sits at a dismal +3 percent while Markle’s is only moderately better at +10 percent. 

Where They Used To Be

Before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they’d be stepping back from their royal duties in January 2020, the two had much higher approval ratings. Harry was viewed positively by 73 percent of Britons of all ages while Markle sat pretty at 55 percent. Those numbers are a lot lower these days, with Markle sitting at a net approval rating of -39 percent and Harry’s net rating at -25 percent among all age groups. 

For comparison, Queen Elizabeth has a net approval rating of +67 percent and Prince William is sitting at a +62 percent rating among all ages. In fact, the Queen even beats the Sussexes among the youth with +32 percent among those aged 18-24. 

Why The Numbers Dropped So Drastically

This shift comes after Harry particularly stroked controversy after making several negative comments about growing up in the royal family. Many royal watchers have taken offense at the way Harry described his life as a royal, including his references to “genetic pain” that his father, Prince Charles, passed down to him. These recent admissions have done nothing to endear the erstwhile prince to the British public. 

Despite the fact that he currently lives in the US, Harry has made it clear that the UK is still his home and has attended several events in the country since his controversial comments. With Harry’s newly announced memoir about his royal upbringing on the horizon, it stands to reason that these numbers will drop further.

The actress' new look is turning heads, but not all of the attention is positive.

Unrecognizable Tori Spelling’s ‘Shocking Transformation’ Sparks Fears For Her Health?

After Tori Spelling revealed her latest transformation earlier this month, some fans applauded her glow-up. But according to one tabloid, Spelling’s friends fear her new look is actually “a cry for help.” Gossip Cop investigates. 

Tori Spelling Is ‘Nearly Unrecognizable’ After Dramatic Makeover? 

OK ‘s cover story claims Tori Spelling’s makeover left her looking “like a totally different person,” and her friends are worried. “People are wondering why she felt the need to go to such extremes,” an insider remarks. The tabloid says that Spelling is hardly recognizable thanks to recent plastic surgeries. The 90210 alum supposedly spent $250,000 on “a mini face-lift, neck lift, eye lift, liposuction, fillers, and micro Botox injections.” 

But Spelling doesn’t appear to be bothered by the alleged concerns friends and family have about her makeover. “Tori is a lot more confident and independent,” another source notes. The insider also draws attention to the possibility that Spelling’s new look has something to do with her unstable marriage to Dean McDermott. With that being said, the tabloid also speculates that Spelling is ready to finally part ways from McDermott and file for divorce. The unnamed insider concludes by saying Spelling’s “ready to do it soon.” 

Should Friends Worry About Tori Spelling? 

We’re struggling to find a reason why Tori Spelling’s friends and family should be concerned about her new look. OK!‘s narrative is hard to believe based on its inability to stick to a single storyline. First, the tabloid portrays Spelling as someone desperate for attention, then switches the narrative to say she’s doing better than ever. Pick a lane.

It’s no secret Spelling and McDermott have been struggling with their marriage for years, and it may end in divorce any day now. However, the idea that Spelling needed a makeover to file for divorce is silly, as she can do so anytime. 

Rumors About Tori Spelling’s Health 

This isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has run into rumors about Spelling’s wellbeing. A month ago, the National Enquirer reported Spelling was struggling to cope with her failing marriage. Apparently, the stress led to Spelling losing “a ton of weight,” and friends feared she was “wasting away to nothing.” 

Star, meanwhile, said that she was having a hard time with her failing relationship. The reason Spelling hadn’t divorced McDermott, the outlet argued, was because she was too broke. “Tori’s trapped in an unhappy marriage with no way out,” one source leaked. The tabloids’ attempts to try to spin something positive in Spelling’s life like a new transformation into a new “health concern” or “divorce drama” are as confusing as they are laughable.
