Prince Harry deemed a 'liability' as his popularity reaches lowest level in eight years in new poll

The Duke of Sussex's popularity has plummeted

The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, has been deemed a 'liability' according to a recent poll.

The royal, who stepped down from his senior duties this March, is apparently no longer a favourite in the public's eye.

A new poll conducted by The Sun shows that Prince Harry, 35, is regarded as a liability by 38 percent of participants.

In 2012, just nine percent of participants of a similar poll regarded Harry a liability.

In this new poll, only 35 percent of participants regard him as an asset to the British nation.

Last November Harry left for Canada with Meghan, only to announce in January that they would be stepping down from their senior royal duties.

The couple now reside in Los Angeles in Tyler Perry's owned mansion.

It is unknown when and if they will return to the UK.

Reports have emerged that Harry is finding lockdown life in LA tough, as he knows few people out there.

But additional reports state that Meghan has reassured him he "will love" LA life once lockdown is over.

They are residing in their new LA home with their son Archie, one, and Meghan's mother, Doria, 63.
