Monday 26 September 2022 04:02 PM Meghan Markle is the eighth most admired member of the royal family after Megxit trends now
The Duchess of Sussex, 41, is well-liked by younger Brits, aged 18 to 25, a new survey conducted by The Sun has revealed. The survey, which polled 2,000 Brits, indicated she was the least-favoured royal among people over the age of 65.
Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton were the most favoured royals, being admired by 23 and 20 per cent of survey-takers, respectively.
Harry, 38, was more highly regarded than his wife and admired by 16 per cent of overall survey-takers. He is still not as popular as new King Charles and Princess Anne.
The Sussexes have been surrounded by controversy since they quit being working royals in 2020. The pair, who said they wanted a more private lifestyle, have received global backlash over allegations they've made in bombshell interviews about their short-time as a working royal couple.
