Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s ‘honeymoon phase is over’ in America: report
The GB News presenter said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had the advantage of being able to tell their side of the story first after moving across the pond. But Mr. Farage added that he can see American commentators "getting very bored" of the couple, who quit royal duties last year for a new life in California.
Mr. Farage, who has a prime-time show on GB News, told Express.co.uk: "Meghan and Harry had mover's advantage in that they were able to put their side of the argument out before anybody else.
"But bit by bit, I can see even American commentators getting very bored with them, so I think their honeymoon is over." Mr. Farage's comments come after a recent YouGov poll suggested the Sussexes' popularity in the UK is continuing to fall.
Of the survey, the GB News presenter said: "That’s right and as it should be. America is a little bit behind but Americans are beginning to see it." The poll of 1,667 British adults carried out from August 27 to 29 showed positive opinion on Harry has dropped nine points since April from 43 percent to 34 percent.
The survey found positive opinion on Meghan has also plunged from 29 percent in April to 26 percent. YouGov blamed the drop on the couple's controversial Oprah Winfrey interview and "poor responses" to their statement on Afghanistan and the Covid pandemic last month.
Harry and Meghan hit out at the Royal Family in their TV interview in March. They made a series of explosive claims about the royals to the US talk show host.
However, the Royal Family made clear they did not agree with all of the Sussexes' versions of events. A statement released by Buckingham Palace after the interview said "recollections may vary". Harry and Meghan quit as working royals in March 2020 and are now living in Montecito.
Last month, they shared their heartbreak over the state of the "exceptionally fragile" world in a statement on their Archewell website. In the statement, the pair said they have been left "speechless" by the Afghanistan crisis. They also addressed the Covid pandemic in the lengthy statement.
