Megyn Kelly said Meghan Markle and Prince Harry “aren’t fooling anyone” as she shared a poll showing the royal couple’s plummeting popularity after tell-all interview.
“After Oprah interview, only 3 in 10 [people] see Meghan Markle favorably [and] more [people] dislike Harry than like him – a new low for both of them,” Kelly tweeted Friday, along with a poll showing the duchess and duke’s popularity has dropped in the United Kingdom.

The duchess faired about the same, with 31% of Britain’s respondent’s having a positive view of her compared to 58% with a negative one. That is a 13-point drop for the wife of Prince Harry versus the last poll, a week ago.
The view of the royal couple varied across the different age groups, with the majority of 18-24 year olds liking Meghan by 55%, compared to a 32% who dislike her.
The same was true for Harry, with three in five Britain’s aged 18 to 24 having a positive opinion of him by 59%, and 28% who dislike him.
However, when it came to people aged 65 and older the duke and former “Suit’s” actress were strongly more disliked than liked, Meghan (13% positive vs 83% negative) and Harry (27% positive vs 69% negative).
The survey was conducted out of 1664 Great Britain residents from March 10th – 11th, 2021.
