Survey: These are the most popular royals
There is no question that the Queen and the rest of the royal family are very popular among Britons. But who is the most popular and which royal is struggling with popularity? A new survey reveals surprising results.
A recent survey shows who Britain’s most popular royals are. The result is somewhat surprising, because as the survey by YouGov indicates, Queen Elizabeth II (92) has not topped the list. Instead, her grandson Prince Harry (34) is ranked No. 1 and is therefore the most popular royal in the UK.
The UK’s most popular royals
It is a bit unusual that as the head of the royal family the Queen did not manage to secure all people’s heart. However, since his fairytale wedding to Meghan Markle (37) Prince Harry has made non-stop headlines. In addition, his first official Royal Tour to Australia, Oceania and New Zealand may have increased the popularity of the father-to-be.
Yet, the Queen does not need to be disappointed as she placed second close behind her grandson, with only a three percent difference, as “Express” reports. The two of them are closely followed by Prince William (36) and Duchess Catherine (36). Prince Philip (96) places fifth among the most popular royals, followed by Duchess Meghan, who is a few places behind her husband.
Prince Charles (69) was definitely the loser of this poll. The heir to the throne only placed seventh in the survey. The top ten is completed by Princess Anne (68), Zara Phillips (37) and Duchess Camilla (71).
