Are Americans Really All That Interested In Prince Harry & Meghan Markle?


Are Americans Really All That Interested In Prince Harry & Meghan Markle?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle feature almost daily in the media and clearly, someone is reading all of those articles. Mind you, it’s not clear how many readers come from the USA as many large outlets have massive audiences across the world. Americans of course, have an interest in the royal family because the couple has made the country their home. But, are they and the rest of their family all that important to the average American?

Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Get A Lot Of Media Attention

Meghan, much like her predecessor, Wallis Simpson ended up stateside with her British royal lover. Recall, King Edward VIII of England fell in love with her. At the time, he ditched the crown and spent the life of Riley living it up in places like New York City. Although much was made of it in the press at the time, they faded from memory. So, when the new royal couple married, interest in the USA peaked again. Unfortunately, though,  a lot of negative press comes for them. But, are the American people all that riveted by seeing them on the news or in the tabloids?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle seem very popular and that is enough reason for Netlfix to extend The Crown to include the possibility of Megsit. However, plenty of countries around the world can get the streaming service. It might take some time, but eventually, people will probably see the show extend beyond Prince Charles’ marriage to Camilla Park-Bowles. Actually, it’s debatable how many people in the USA wait for it with bated breath. After all, The Wall Street Journal reported this month, that Netflix lost “Nearly 1 Million Subscribers.”

Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Are Really Boring People?

An interesting poll published by The Sun UK earlier this year revealed that most people would rather read “junk mail” than hear about the red-headed son of Lady Di and his wife. Does that still hold true in the USA? Redditors discussed it when u/ID_THROW_A_PIPE_BOMB asked about it on the Askreddit subreddit this weekend. The post asked for Americans to give their “honest views on the royal family.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, it appears, hold little interest for most people who participated in the conversation. Actually, that goes for the whole royal family. One responder said, “Snobby aristocrats that serve no purpose other than to exploit people and places for their own personal gain. Unelected officials who meddle in political affairs to which they have no business being involved in.”

Few Positive Comments

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the rest of the royal clan seem to be unimportant to the average person. Admittedly, some people didn’t mind Prince Charles too much. But for most people, the royals just seem like a nothing-burger. One person said, “I have no real interest in them. They’re just another rich family as far as I’m concerned.”

Admittedly, it wasn’t a massive poll. And yet, the fact that only about 25 people responded also points to Americans not really caring about Harry and his family. Do they interest you at all? Sound off in the comments below.

Be sure to catch up on everything happening with the royal family. Come back here often for more royal family news and updates.

    Harry and Markle are a yawn. Self-serving wastes of paper. Not interested.

  2. Sheri says

    You can’t get on the internet and most other media without hearing about Harry and Megan, they are discusting I,ME,MY manipulators and I am tired of them and their garbage. Would be nice if they moved to an island where there is no media.

    Megan Markle is a nightmare and a truly bad choice for Harry. Megan loves herself, money and celebrity in that order, Harry and her poor children have been necessary to enable her to benefit and have those rewards. She is a liar, money hungry, her self worth is based on her celebrity status, social integration, she is not even close to the person she would like the public to believe she is. Harry needs to divorce the witch, take his children back to the UK and keep her as far away as legally possible. I follow them hoping to see it the mess end and soon

      Meghan is ridiculous. She truly has mental issues. She is the nightmare to avoid. She has ruined Harry. He was once very kind & down to earth.

      She has taken his self confidence., self worth, along with his family & friends. She is a text book toxic, controlling narcissist.
      You can hand pick a few videos over the course of their “relationship” and see how he has slowly had his humanity taken by her. He is now a sad, self loathing, angry person. He doesn’t realize it yet, but he’s not angry at his family, he is angry at her. His family loves him she doesn’t know what love is.

      Toxic people, like her, have no friends or family. In their mind they are all they need. No one else is more important than her. Others are used and tossed aside. They of course always have another person to control & manipulate.

      I cannot wait until the day she is gone. We all need her out of ALL media. She promotes everything bad in society. PEOPLE magazine needs to STOP trying to promote them as positive “Riyals”. He carry’s the bloodline. Technically he’ll always be a Prince. She is nothing. She is not Royalty. Stop calling her Duchess, Princess or even celebrity. No one knew who she was before they started dating.

      BTW: I’m American. If I even mention them, it stops a conversation while I explain who they are. No one cares.

    They are not worthy of any publicity. And even bad…the more they are in the news, I question why? They are two selfish childish people and if you have any sense about you, you would see it is she who instituted all of this and Harry tagged along…what a shame. I have such admiration to a woman that ruled for as long as the Queen has and never revealed such incompetence such as they…..quit writing about them. Even this negative news is giving them popularity and we need to not think about two childish people…write about the important news….not this crapola !!!!
