Prince Harry was the most popular royal until he met Meghan Markle.

There is no doubt that Prince William’s younger brother is more favored than the future king. However, after meeting his wife, things changed for Prince Harry.

“He was the most popular royal of a younger generation that we’ve seen for 100 years,” Brexit party leader Nigel Farage said of Princess Diana and Prince Charles’ second son.

“And then he met Meghan Markle, and it’s fallen off a cliff.”

Farage’s point wasn’t new at all. Many believed that the Duke of Sussex changed after he married the former “Suits” star. Prior to meeting Markle, Prince Harry was praised and he also received more love compared to his big brother because he was the underdog and the spare. In addition, it was easier to relate to him.

“Prince Harry is easier to relate to; he is an extrovert, his emotions are not hidden, and the public felt very sad for him to lose his mother while he was twelve. Harry puts himself out there, and people respond to that,” Deanna Eppers stated.

Even Prince Harry and Prince William’s mom, Princess Diana, confessed to giving more love to Prince Harry because she felt that he was not treated equally as the Duke of Cambridge, the future king.

“As compensation, Diana poured more love and attention into Harry,” Princess Diana’s close friend and royal commentator Richard Kay revealed.

However, lately, Prince Harry has been facing non-stop criticisms, from his publicly funded home to his attitude towards the press. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex used the taxpayers money to renovate their home, but they kept the details of their son’s birth from the public which irked many people.

Also, the duke was slammed for always talking about the environment and climate change, but he fails to practice what he preaches. Many called Prince Harry a “hypocrite.”

In addition, a recent report claimed that among his guilty pleasures are massages and spa treatments. He reportedly spends $61 for a pedicure, which his former military pals couldn’t believe because when they were together in the army, he didn’t care about how he looked.

“Pedicures and massages? He’s changed!” one pal said.
