Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are acutely aware that their main appeal stateside is their brand of “glossy tiaras”, one royal commentator said.

She added: “They need it and they are losing it day by day living in Montecito, California.”
Are Americans really turning on Harry and Meghan?
Schofield’s comments come as a poll last month found Harry and Meghan’s appeal had slumped to a new low among Americans.
The same poll, conducted for Newsweek, saw the Royal Family bounce back in the US after trailing the Sussexes in the popularity stakes.

But the poll of 2,000 eligible US voters also found the Royal Family took a hit in the eyes of the public.
A little more than one month later, Harry and Meghan have sunk further in the polls while William, Prince of Wales, Catherine, Princess of Wales, King Charles III and Camilla, Queen Consort, have all seen their standing in the US improve.
Camilla is now more popular in America than both Harry and Meghan.
Prince Harry was liked by 32 percent and disliked by 42 percent of those polled, giving him a net approval rating of -10, in research conducted by Redfield & Wilton for Newsweek on February 19.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have received a major boost as most Americans believe their children should have royal titles, a new poll has found. The children were born Archie and Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor but since the death of Queen Elizabeth II they have been titled Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
That is a drop of three points since Newsweek’s polling on January 16 which had him at -7.
And he has now dropped 48 points since December 5 when polling by Redfield & Wilton for Newsweek put him on +38.
Meghan Markle was liked by 27 percent of Americans and disliked by 44 percent giving her a net rating -17 in our latest February 19 figures.
That represents a drop of four points since January 16, when she was on -13, and of 40 points since December 5 when she was on +23.
Plummeting: Harry and Meghan’s popularity is sliding stateside, polling shows
At the same time, the royals have seen their popularity ratings rise ahead of the Coronation.
Charles was liked by 29 percent and disliked by 18 percent giving him a net approval of +11 in our latest February polling.
On January 16 he was on +8 and he has now all but repaired the small dent in his reputation experienced since December 5, when he was on +12.
Camilla was liked by 23 percent and disliked by 23 percent meaning her net approval rating is now on net zero.
Upswing: The royals are enjoying a bounce back among Americans following Spare
That is a small improvement since December 5 when she was on -2 and a more significant swing since January when she was on -8.
The result is striking because Camilla was among the royals to fare badly in Spare and Harry’s associated interviews, after she was accused of leaking information to the media.
The book accused her of sacrificing Harry on her PR altar and revealed Harry and William did not want her and Charles to marry.
Harry was also critical of his brother, William, but he too has enjoyed a bounce back.
William was liked by 42 percent of Americans and disliked by 14 percent giving him a net rating of +28 in the February polling.
