The royal family is quite large. And because of the size, some family members are more familiar than others. Perhaps the five most famous (or the most controversial, rather) family members nowadays are Queen Elizabeth, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. But which of these royals is the most loved? According to a public opinion poll published by YouGov, one is the clear winner.
5. Meghan Markle
Of these five royals, Meghan Markle is at the bottom of the list in terms of positivity assessment. The audience gave her only 55%, which means that only slightly more than half of the general public likes her. Some people have wondered if Meghan and Harry were married for the wrong reasons, and Meghan has probably caused a fight between her and Kate (nobody is even sure how true that is), both of which may have influenced the audience. However, the poll noted that people find her confident and charming.
Kate Middleton is generally regarded as a very good role model. In fact, that is exactly how people described her in the survey. She is always polished and professional, but she is not afraid to get her hands dirty when it comes to hunting spiders with her children. She has a positivity rating of 64%, which is slightly lower than some people had probably guessed. It is possible that Kate will come off as too stiff, because she and William take professionalism very seriously.
3. Prince William
People love Prince William. And that is a good thing, because he will one day be the king. He achieved a general positivity rating of 73%, according to the poll. The public regards him as a genuine, responsible person, who both have important qualities in describing a leader. William definitely takes his role seriously, and he has since he was young. He never had a rebellious phase like his younger brother did (although we have ignored all of Prince Harry’s gifts).
2. Queen Elizabeth
Who can hate Queen Elizabeth? Apparently not many people. The queen is the most important royal family member, so it goes without saying that she is highly respected. The queen received a positivity rating of 74% from the public. Those who took the poll described her as respected and worthy. It’s hard to have a problem with a woman who still drives Range Rover and wears bright pink outfits at the age of 92. The queen is certainly her own person and it seems that almost everyone is here.
1. Prince Harry
The most beloved member of the royal family is Prince Harry. He has a general positivity rating of 77%, which means that less than a quarter of the population carries beef. That’s pretty strange for someone in such a high position. People see Harry as admirable and fun-loving. He has certainly gone through a phase (many parties and occasionally a naked photo), but it only shows that he is a human just like the rest of us. He may have been married to the least loved royal of the five, but Meghan is still new to the family, so she has plenty of time to win the crowd.
