Is America's love affair with Harry and Meghan over? Sussexes' star 'is waning' following Spare
America’s infatuation with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle appears to have hit a rough patch following the release of the their Netflix docuseries and the Duke of Sussex’s bombshell memoir Spare.
They saw their popularity ratings plummet in just over a month and are reportedly receiving fewer invitations to glamorous events as A-listers fear they will become the focus of attention.
Prior to publication, Harry had a favorability rating of +38, according to a December 5 poll of 2,000 US voters. That plunged to -7 by January 16, pollsters Redfield & Wilton found – while Meghan Markle dropped to -13, compared to +23 on December 5.
Meanwhile the couple are seeing a drop-off in invites to big-ticket events amid rumours that some of their closest celebrity friendships are on the rocks.
When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were interviewed by Oprah Winfrey in March 2021, their allegations against the royal family, including that one member of the family made racist comments about their unborn child, shocked the world.
But despite having counted Ms Winfrey as a close friend for some time, there are concerns in Hollywood that the relationship between the neighbours has become fraught, The Times reports.
Fuel was added to this speculation during a 25th anniversary party of beauty brand Anastasia Beverly Hills, which also served as an unofficial 69th birthday party for Ms Winfrey in Los Angeles last week.
Stars such as Kim Kardashian, Sofia Vergara and Jennifer Lopez all attended the do, but the Duchess of Sussex was noticably absent, leading some to draw the conclusion that she had been snubbed by Ms Winfrey.
