Prince Harry news — Meghan Markle and Duke to continue ‘war against Royal Family’ as bond goes ‘from bad to worse’
Royal Family’s positive approval drops
Ipsos reported that the positive approval rating has dropped to its lowest over the last 12 months to 47%, dropping six points since the start of the year.
The research organisation revealed how following the death of Queen Elizabeth and the release of Prince Harry’s memoir, Spare, the leading members of the Royal Family saw a decline in their approval ratings.
Prince William remains the most favourite royal with a rating of 59%, followed by Princess Anne, 57%, KAte with 56% and then King Charles with 49%.
Chief executive of Ipsos, UK and Ireland, Kelly Beaver MBE said: “Our latest polling shows the popularity of the Royal Family and its most prominent members is still down from the levels of sympathy in the aftermath of the Queen’s funeral, while engaging young people in support for the monarchy remains a key challenge.
“However, while this does raise questions for the future, supporters of the monarchy still outnumber opponents, and half or more remain favourable towards its leading members.
“Looking ahead, the coronation of Charles III will be a moment of national celebration that could change this picture again, with the potential to lead to another rise in popularity for our new king and Royal Family – future research will tell us whether this will be sustained.”
