For years, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, seemed to be the most popular royals. Although Prince Harry himself was an older working royal, he typically came along with his brother and sister-in-law and even earned himself a reputation as “the world’s most famous third wheel.” When Harry married American actress Meghan Markle, all of a sudden all eyes were on the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex. This does not mean that Harry did not already have a huge fan base, but in recent years, almost everything he and Meghan do becomes headline news.
As the future king and queen comrades, William and Kate will always occupy a special place in the hearts of fans all over the world. Over the years, they have touched the lives of so many people, which more than explains why thousands line up on the streets to catch a glimpse of them every time they look out. Although the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are receiving huge amounts of positive attention, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just showed that they will always be more popular than William and Kate.
Meghan and Harry are no longer limited by the royal family
Being a member of the royal family sounds like an adventure to almost anyone, but the truth is that at times it is quite difficult. Royals are expected to follow a long list of rules and protocols, as illustrated by Harper’s Bazaar, and the work schedule for senior family members can be quite demanding. Add to that the unfair media treatment that royals like Meghan and Harry have received, and it’s anything but easy to be in the spotlight. For a couple of years, Meghan and Harry were bound by the framework of royal life, and they became pretty dissatisfied and frustrated everywhere. It was early in 2020 that the couple announced they would retire as working family members, and now that they have finally settled in California with their young son to begin their independent journey, they are even more popular, especially now that Megxit is finally . We can only imagine how happy the Duke and Duchess of Sussex must be to no longer be confined by the royal family.
