Meghan Markle, 39, and Prince Harry, 36, have been discussing the private life of the Royal Family in numerous interviews since stepping down as senior members in March 2020. But royal expert Penny Junor has warned the Sussexes against their latest media appearances. She insisted that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have not “thought things through”.
Speaking to Channel 5 documentary Harry and Meghan: 3 Troubled Years, royal expert Julie Montagu said: “After year two when they moved away, many of us expected them to just live a quiet life and become financially independent.
“Here we are three years on and you also have an enormous shift in the relationship with the Royal Family and Meghan and Harry.
“A shift that none of us could have expected.”
Narrator Jennifer Saayeng added: “Is there popularity with the British public declining too?”
Ms Junor said: “I don’t think they’re getting very good advice at the moment and I don’t think they are thinking a lot of these things through.”
Journalist Richard Kay noted: “I do think a lot of people have become disenchanted with him and her over what has happened and he is not quite the popular figure that he once was.”
Meghan and Harry’s popularity ratings have plummeted as a new poll showed they both dropped to a new low.
A YouGov poll published last week found that almost half of Britons view the Duke negatively, while more than 60 percent have a negative view of the Duchess.

Just 43 percent viewed Harry positively, down from 45 percent the previous month.
Meghan’s scores have also plunged, with just 29 percent having a positive view of the Duchess. A total of 61 percent view her negatively, up from 58 percent.

Prince Andrew remains the least popular royal as 79 percent of Brits view him negatively.
The poll highlighted Prince Edward and Prince Charles had received the biggest boost in popularity in recent months.
Prince Edward led the Royal Family’s public efforts to show the Queen’s appreciation for the public in the aftermath of Prince Philip’s death in April.
The Earl of Wessex, alongside wife Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, and daughter Lady Louise viewed floral tributes to the Duke at Windsor as well as spoke with the public on several occasions in the run-up to the funeral.
