Prince HarryandMeghan Markleare “getting on everyone’s nerves” and won’t “regain the high popularity they once reached”, a royal commentator has claimed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex saw their public approval ratings plummet to an all-time low in the UK earlier this week.
Harry's positive opinion ranking fell nine points since April to 34%, whereas Meghan's has dropped three to 26%, according to a YouGov poll which collected data between August 27 and August 29.
TheQueenremains the most popularroyalwith an 80% positive opinion rating, while Prince Williamis ranked second with 78%.
Royal expert Charles Rae told Entertainment Daily: “I think Harry and Meghan are a lost cause.
“I cannot see them ever regaining the high popularity they once reached. Their continued preachings are getting on everyone’s nerves.
“In at least one poll they lost 50 points which puts them lower than Prince Charles when he divorced Diana.”
Mr Rae added: “I cannot see any way back.”
Prince Andrew sat at the bottom of the poll, with just a 6% approval rating.
YouGov said Harry and Megan’s ratings had fallen since their interview with Oprah Winfrey.

There were also “poor responses to their statements surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic and the [US] withdrawal from Afghanistan”.
However, the couple remain the most popular royals among young people.
Between people aged 18-24, 47% have a positive view of Harry, a figure which rises to 50% for Meghan.
Earlier this month, royal writer Omid Scobie said the couple had a “very busy period” approaching.
Harry and Meghan are currently spending time at home with newborn daughter Lilibet in Montecito, California, the US.

He told Good Morning America: "We will see those first projects from Spotify, theNetflixproject coming out and of course their own work from their charitable organisation Archewell.”
Mr Scobie added: “It's not that they want to disappear or not be seen.
"It's simply that they want to choose what they keep private and what they share with the world."
