In a recent YouGov survey, positive opinion of Harry has decreased from 43 per cent in April to just 34 per cent now.

In addition, a positive opinion of Meghan stands at 26 per cent compared to 29 per cent in April.

“In at least one poll they lost 50 points which puts them lower than Prince Charles when he divorced Diana.”

The expert added: “I cannot see any way back.

“Perhaps they should wake up and smell the coffee and realise that they are no longer nor will be loved by the British public as they once were.”

Meanwhile, in the latest poll, it showed that those aged between 18 and 24 are split over Harry with 47 per cent having a positive opinion.

However, 44 per cent have a negative view.
