British Prince Harry (38) has fallen further on the popularity list of the royals in Great Britain after the publication of his memoirs. As a representative survey by the opinion research institute Yougov revealed, two-thirds of adults in the United Kingdom now have a negative image of the royal. A quarter of those polled on January 10th and 11th see him in a positive light.

Harry is even less popular with older people than Prince Andrew (62), who was discredited for his involvement in the abuse scandal surrounding the late US multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein. Accordingly, 73 percent of people of retirement age stated that they had a “very bad” image of Harry. According to the survey, 60 percent of this age group said the same thing about King Charles III’s brother, Prince Andrew.

More than 40 percent of people in Great Britain also believe that Harry’s financial interest was the main reason for the publication of the autobiography. 21 percent, on the other hand, see it as an attempt to present their point of view.

Harry’s brother Prince William (40) and the king’s wife Camilla (75) can’t benefit from the Zoff among the Royals, which was fueled by the book entitled “Spare” (in German: “Reserve”): According to the survey, William had to give up his rank as the most popular royal to his aunt Princess Anne (72). According to the poll, the proportion who view Camilla in a positive light fell from 50 percent to 46 percent.

The popularity of the royal family and the monarchy as a whole is suffering from the drama surrounding Prince Harry, the poll shows. About two-thirds of Britons (64 percent) still wanted to keep the monarchy. But the number of those who are proud of it has fallen from 55 percent last September to 43 percent this week.
