Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s recent “whingeathon” has led to dwindling support in the US, according to a royal author who has just returned from a trip stateside. Valentine Low, back in the UK after promoting his new book about the Royal Family, has said conversations on the ground support polling data indicating Americans are growing tired of the Sussex narrative.
Two thousand eligible US voters were polled six days after the publication of Prince Harry‘s memoir, Spare, which contains a number of bombshell revelations about royal life.
The Duke’s favourability rating dropped 45 points from +38 in December to -7 in January.
Overall, 44 percent of Americans surveyed in the Newsweek poll said they felt Harry should not have revealed private family conversations in Spare, compared with 26 percent who backed the prince’s decision.
Meghan did not fare much better. The Duchess of Sussex was found to be considerably less popular than Queen Consort Camilla, even after Harry’s criticism of his stepmother in the book.

The couple then settled in Montecito, an affluent neighbourhood in Santa Barbara, California.
Buckingham Palace confirmed in February 2021 that Harry and Meghan would not be returning to royal duties.
“While all are saddened by their decision, the Duke and Duchess remain much loved members of the family,” the palace statement said at the time.
