Prince Harry continues to lose support from the British public following the release of his Netflix docuseries ‘Harry & Meghan’.
A recent poll conducted by YouGov in the UK on behalf of The Times found almost half of those polled believe the Duke of Sussex should be stripped of his royal title.
According to the poll, 44% of those polled thought Harry’s title should be dropped while 32% thought he should keep his title.
Polls also found respondents were more sympathetic to Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton than Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle after the two-part docuseries dropped earlier this month.

Forty-four per cent of those polled told pollsters they had more sympathy for the Prince and Princess of Wales, while just 17 per cent said they sympathized more with the Sussexes.
Public opinions of Harry and Meghan also plummeted following the release of the docuseries, with 23% saying they now think less of the couple, while just 7% said it made them think of the two better.
In January 2020, Harry and Meghan announced that they were stepping down from their roles as working royals. The couple moved to the United States and currently live in Montecito, California.
Sixty-five per cent of those polled believed the couple had left the Royal Family of their own accord, while just 11 per cent said they believed the two had been deported.
In a 2021 TV special hosted by Oprah Winfrey, Harry and Meghan made accusations of racism against an unnamed member of the royal family, who they believe made a comment about their son Archie’s skin color.
However, 49% of those polled said they did not think the Royal Family was a racist institution while 26% said they thought it was racist.
The Sunday Times previously reported that the couple were seeking a ‘royal summit’ and an ‘apology’ from the family.
According to the poll, 53% of those polled said they didn’t think Harry and Meghan deserved an apology, while just 19% thought the couple did.
After Harry and Meghan stepped down as senior royals, the Home Office, which is the UK department responsible for police, immigration and security, decided they would not receive personal police security when visiting the country. Harry legally challenged this decision.
The majority of survey respondents sided with the Home Office, saying the two should not benefit from the security provided by the UK government. Thirty-two percent said the UK government should provide them with police protection.

However, a majority of the public said Harry and Meghan should be invited to King Charles III’s coronation next summer, with 51% in favor and 31% disagreeing.
“Kensington Palace: An Intimate Memoir from Queen Mary to Meghan Markle,” author Tom Quinn shared his thoughts on the new poll, telling The Times he was “only surprised the documentary didn’t do more damage to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”
He added, “I found it painful to watch. It made you realize that these are lost souls. It’s amazing that they feel it will make things better for them.”
“I’m not at all surprised that people have more sympathy for the Prince and Princess of Wales because they’re doing the classic thing of being stoic,” Quinn said. “They don’t complain about Harry.

“I think it’s unlikely that the King will take the title away from the Duke of Sussex because it looks like he and Prince William are doing the sort of things that Harry and Meghan are doing.”
“Their modus operandi is to be quiet and calm and not lash out.”
