Prince Harry’s plummeting popularity ‘adds to his anger,’ royal expert claims
Prince Harry's plummeting popularity and loss of his 'most popular royal' title "probably adds to his anger", an expert has claimed.
Duncan Larcombe, who wrote the best-selling biography Prince Harry: The Inside Story, has said the Duke's apparent fall from grace "must be really hard for him and probably adds to his anger".
His comments come after a YouGov poll revealed that the Susssexes' popularity has dropped since the bombshell Oprah interview in March in which Harry and wife Meghan Markle made some serious claims about the Firm.
"Meghan too was so welcomed in the beginning, but now the UK has lost trust in her. Their popularity has totally nosedived," he told Closer magazine.
"It's worrying to think what Harry has left if his American life fails for him. I don't think he'll be welcomed back as a working royal, but he would as a brother, son and grandson.
"If Harry's not on the balcony at Buckingham Palace, waving to the crowds, on the day his father or his brother becomes King, then I think the public will be done with him."
Larcombe added that the couple are now "trapped" in the new life they've created.

“It’s backfired. Harry and Meghan seem to have totally isolated themselves – they’re more trapped than ever in this new life they’ve created," he said.
Representatives for the Sussexes have been approached for comment.
Harry's positive opinion ranking has fallen nine points since April to 34%, whereas Meghan's has dropped three to 26%, states the poll which collected data between August 27 and August 29.
The Sussexes' responses to the Afghanistan crisis and Covid are responsible for the drop, according to the survey.
The Queen remains the most popular royal with an 80% positive opinion rate. Prince William ranks second with 78%.
Negative opinion polling has Harry at 59% and Meghan at 65% among Brits.
