Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their second child, while that’s certainly a joyous time, the couple are struggling to connect with their new American audience. According to the former royal editor of The Sun, the Duke and Duchess of Montecito popularity continues to plummet.
“This guy was a hero in Britain and now he is the zero, I’m afraid,” Charlie Rae, the former royal editor of The Sun, said in an interview. “His popularity has gone right down. There was a poll the other night which showed 54 percent of people just wished he would shut up.”
This poll was performed by Newsweek, and showed that more than half of Brits wanted Harry to find something else to do with his time beyond whining about his existence and his family, who he knows cannot fight back.
The interest of the younger generations is a bit higher, as 46% of young people ages 18-24 want to hear more about the challenges and struggles of living a life of luxury in palaces with servants. Good news Harry and Meghan, you have officially captured the influencer generation. Bravo.
Thirty-nine percent of Brits disapprove Harry talking about life inside the royal family, compared to the 36% who approve.
It’s not only the British, but Americans are also getting sick and tired of Harry and Meghan as well.
Radio host Kevin O’Sullivan stated, “The popularity polls for him and Meghan on both sides of the Atlantic are plummeting.
“He made the serious mistake a couple weeks back of questioning America’s sacred First Amendment, which is about freedom of speech.
“Americans do not take kindly to interlopers who turn up in their country and criticize it.”
It’s true. Across the country, those that hold the First Amendment dear expressed outrage at the Prince’s inability to understand a simple conception, that citizens of this country have the right to say whatever they want and associate with whomever they want. There’s more to the bill than that, but perhaps that’s what the errant prince has an issue with.
In his interview with Dax Shepard on “Armchair Expert Podcast,” Harry expressed his frustration at Joe Rogan and his stance on the coronavirus vaccine. The #1 podcast on Spotify, Rogan shared that he didn’t believe that young, healthy people really need the vaccine.
Prince Harry, who barely graduated high school and may have even cheated to do so disagreed, sharply criticizing Rogan and calling his statements “misinformation.”
However, that’s what the First Amendment is supposed to guarantee. People have the right to believe that the world is flat if they want to in the United States, as long as they’re following the rules of law then there shouldn’t be any issue.
Harry is too uninformed about the virus, vaccine and this country to take any issue with Rogan’s statements.
But the prince is following his wife’s and the liberal perspective, one that is increasingly and concerningly dismissive of the First Amendment’s protection of free speech and religion. Regardless of what Harry says, Rogan’s comments are protected by the First Amendment and should be. Shepard tried to explain that to the dimwitted prince, but he again revealed his stunning lack of intelligence and understanding of the new country he now calls home.
He needs the people of the U.S. on his side if he and Meghan are going to succeed—however, he angered many of the public with his statements and is damaging the couple’s future prospects in Hollywood.
On “Good Morning Britain,” Washington editor of The Spectator US, said, “The UK is one of the top 10 exporters to the US – as an American, in the words of former president Donald Trump, you all are not sending your best. I would beg you, please take Prince Harry back.”
That’s pretty good, and rather true.
Prince Harry, if you’re reading this, please at least try to understand this country beyond the microscopic number of people Meghan is allowing you to interact with, before you judge it. You are doing her and your growing family no favors by demonstrating to the world your stunning and noticeable lack of objectivity.
