A nice boost for Harry in new data from polling firm YouGov, reported by Newsweek, which suggests that Harry is (once again) more popular than his brother William. Harry was once the golden boy in U.S. eyes, but his popularity rating plummeted after the release of his memoir Spare, from +52 to +7. His and wife Meghan Markle’s perceived lack of popularity was also reflected in their split from Spotify deal, which saw them labeled “fucking grifters” by the streamer’s Bill Simmons.
Now however the tide may have turned, with YouGov saying Harry has an approval rating of +24 compared to William on +22. Meghan gets just +17, based on 40% liking her and 23% disliking her.
Kate, as always, comes up smelling of roses, with a net rating of +35.
The poll is based on 1,500 interviews conducted between April and June.
