Let’s face it, we all love to see what our favorite royals are up to. Whether you prefer learning all about Prince George’s cheeky escapades or seeing Kate Middleton’s latest recycled look, each person has his or her favorite member of the royal family.
A new poll has found that none other than Prince Harry has taken the title of the most popular royal with the British public. A solid 77 percent of Britons have a positive opinion of Harry, while 74 percent held the same opinion of the queen, ringing her in second place. Meanwhile, Prince William came in third at 73 percent.
The YouGov survey described Harry as admirable, likeable, humorous, fun-loving, and genuine, according to his fans. Meanwhile, those who didn’t quite make the top five included Meghan Markle who came in sixth place, Prince Charles who came in seventh, and Camilla who rounded out the tenth spot.
While Kate Middleton came in at fourth place ahead of Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex still garnered a positive opinion from over half of Britain (55 percent). Meghan has quickly risen in popularity following her wedding to Prince Harry in May. The pair’s affectionate nature and their recent pregnancy announcement has certainly delighted royal fans, which would have improved Meghan’s case greatly.
The pair have just finished a tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga where they shared a number of sweet moments with royal fans. One such moment happened while the expecting parents visited the Sydney Opera House, which is where Harry ran into a war widow named Daphne, whom he had come across several times before during his public appearances. The pair shared a warm embrace before Harry quickly summoned over his new wife to meet his old friend.
Meanwhile, the survey showed less than half of Britain (48 percent) had a positive view of Prince Charles, who will ring in his 70th birthday this week. This might come as a surprise given the royal’s strong dedication to environmental causes and hard work ethic. However, his wife Camilla garnered just a 26-percent approval rating — guess you can’t please them all!
The birthday boy, Prince Charles, will be celebrating in style as he rings in the milestone. The queen will host a reception and dinner in the state rooms of Buckingham Palace where close family members and several other European royal dignitaries will attend, including Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik.
