Has the popularity of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle among fellow Britons taken a steep nose dive? It certainly does, by the looks of it.

According to Daily Mail, credible sources have cited that Harry and Meghan are losing followers—precisely 700,000— at a very quick rate on Instagram since the past year. This puts them in an awkward spot, largely because their rival couple i.e. Prince William and Kate Middleton are going strong in terms of building and sustaining a loyal fanbase.

The Cambridges stand at 13 million followers on Instagram, while the Queen’s Royal Family account has 1.3 million more followers, The Sun reported. While it’s tough to accurately understand why royal experts are of the opinion that it’s about time Harry and Meghan stepped up their game and practiced what they preach.

“They tell people to be compassionate yet neither are compassionate towards their own families. They complain of climate change and tell us to be green, yet they then hop on private jets. People are deciding they don't agree with their behavior and switch off,” said royal commentator Angela Levin, as per the media outlet.

Another speculation that’s been doing the rounds is the alleged lack of real followers for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. While it’s no surprise that Megxit led to a severe backlash, it has been further reported that only 66% of Harry and his wife’s followers seem to be legit, whereas the rest of the followers reportedly appear to be bots who ‘mass follow’ big names account.

As per the data procured by a YouGov survey, the explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey clearly didn’t go down well with the British public. Apart from being livid at the accusations made at the show, several Britons believed that Harry was not very positive in his approach despite his return to the UK for grandpa Prince Philip’s funeral on April 17. The survey indicates that a whopping 43% of Britons had a positive opinion of Harry, while 49% regarded him negatively.

With the re-edition of the biography “Finding Freedom” just around the corner, it is uncertain as to whether things will tip in the Sussexes’ favor. The book, written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, has sparked mammoth curiosity, especially after Scobie allegedly revealed how Harry and the former “Suits” star tried to find a way to compromise with the Monarchy before they decided to part ways for good.

According to the book, the decision to make the exit came after the Sussexes realized if they stayed back, there “would have constantly been issues pertaining to financial endeavors and business decisions they made."
