Meghan Markle, Prince Harry Reportedly Lose Support From Public For Coronation Attendance Following ‘Spare’ Release
A recent poll has reportedly found that many individuals across the United Kingdom do not want to see Meghan Markle and Prince Harry at the coronation of King Charles III this May.
Express UK reported that the former working royals lost the support of many people across the U.K. following the release of “Spare,” the highly anticipated memoir of the King’s youngest son.
It speculated that this would add to the mounting pressure on the monarch to take action against the couple, particularly involving his coronation and the invitation to his son and daughter-in-law.
It comes as a OnePoll survey, which the Daily Express commissions, found that 44 percent of its data population does not want the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at the coronation, as per the outlet. But, it said the results also show that 31 percent think they should attend, while the rest remains undecided.
No official word has been heard yet with regard to the guests and invitations for the coronation of King Charles III in May. It remains unknown whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will get an invite or accept should they receive one.
Even so, the former communications secretary to the King, Kristina Kyriacou, told the Daily Express that the British Monarch “is not a vindictive man.” Accordingly, she reportedly believes that the “Spare” author and the former “Suits” actress will receive an invitation to attend the historic event at Westminster Abbey.
The talks about the matter come after the Duke of Sussex made several shocking claims in his newly released memoir. He included allegations about some members of the British Royal Family, but the rest of the royals remains silent about the material.
Despite this, Express UK shared elsewhere in its report, published Friday, that a poll shows Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have suffered the most damage following the publication of “Spare,” which hit shelves on January 10.
Meanwhile, Newsweek shared a similar report, citing a YouGov-conducted poll from January 10 and 11.
It said that Meghan Markle is viewed “very negatively” among over 65-year-olds as 73 percent of the data population dislikes her, while 69 percent for Prince Harry.
Across all age groups, the outlet shared that 22 percent liked the Duchess of Sussex, but 68 percent disliked her, giving her an approval rating of -46.
As for the Duke of Sussex, he reportedly has an approval rating of -44 as 68 percent viewed him negatively, while only 24 percent saw him otherwise.
