A YouGov poll administered Jan. 5-6 revealed 64% of British participants hold a negative view of Prince Harry, making him the most unpopular royal in Britain.

1,600 individuals participated in the survey and a mere 26% hold a favorable view of the duke. The public holds an even worse view of Prince Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle. Sixty-five percent of survey participants hold a negative view of Markle, while only 23% approve. Overall, their net positive ratings are -38% and -42% respectively.

According to YouGov data, Prince Harry’s favorability among the British populace has plummeted since he and Meghan Markle left the royal family, claiming a desire for privacy. However, both the prince and his wife have made continuous headlines and media appearances over recent months.

The couple released a Netflix docuseries in early December while the prince is set to release his memoir ”Spare” on Jan. 10. However, the book was prematurely released by accident last week in Spain, according to Yahoo News.

In his book, Harry is expected to reveal details surrounding his drug history, military service, how he lost his virginity, and his relationship with his brother, Prince William.

On Sunday, Harry appeared in two interviews to promote his upcoming book release. He discussed various transgressions he claimed the media and his family had committed against him when speaking on “60 Minutes” with Anderson Cooper.
