The favorability of the Duchess of Sussex is seen through a partisan lens in the US, as she fares poorly among voters who backed former President Donald Trump in 2020, according to a new poll from The Economist/YouGov.

Among Trump voters, 62 percent of respondents have an unfavorable view of Meghan Markle, with 46 percent holding a “very unfavorable” view.

Only 25 percent of Trump voters have a favorable view of Markle.

However, she is viewed favorably by a whopping 72 percent of voters who backed President Joe Biden in the 2020 election, with only 14 percent of Biden voters holding an unfavorable view.

Among the general public, Markle is viewed positively by 47 percent of respondents, with 33 percent seeing her unfavorably, and 20 percent of respondents not having an opinion.

The partisan lines are similar for Markle’s husband, Prince Harry.

While 76 percent of Biden voters have a favorable opinion of the Duke of Sussex, only 10 percent of Biden voters view him unfavorably.

Among Trump voters, 38 percent of respondents see Harry in a positive light, while 46 percent registered their disapproval.

The late Princess Diana, Harry’s mother, is seen positively by 66 percent of respondents and her enduring popularity translates across politics – 79 percent of Biden voters see her positively, with 67 percent of Trump voters expressing the same sentiment.

The Royal Family is currently in state of mourning after the death of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II.

The duke passed away on April 9 at the age of 99 and was the longest-serving British consort in history.

Harry flew to the United Kingdom to attend the funeral, while Markle, who is pregnant with the couple’s second child, stayed in the United States as she did not have a clearance to travel.

Markle paid tribute to the duke by providing a custom-made wreath for the funeral service and sending a handwritten note.

The relationship between Markle, Harry, and the Royal Family has been under an intense lens since the blockbuster March interview that the couple conducted with Oprah Winfrey.

The duke reportedly disapproved of the interview, but continued to support the couple.

A law firm will reportedly be appointed by Buckingham palace to investigate bullying claims against Meghan

  • Buckingham Palace will reportedly launch an investigation into accusations against Meghan Markle.
  • The news follows Meghan and Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah.
  • “The actual worst incidences haven’t come out,” palace sources were quoted as saying in The Sunday Times.

Buckingham Palace is appointing a third-party law firm to carry out an independent investigation into bullying allegations made against the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, according to The Sunday Times.

The news comes after the Sussex’s sat down with media mogul, Oprah Winfrey, in a bombshell interview that revealed the couple’s strained relationships with the royal family and the ill-treatment they said they were receiving.

Last week, in the lead-up to the interview, sources said the Palace was ‘”prepared to retaliate” with fresh disclosures about the couple’s behavior if the monarchy is attacked.”

Per The Sunday Times report, the Palace plan to appoint an independent law firm to handle the allegations made against Markle and her spouse, Prince Harry, that the couple bullied royal staff. It is a surprising move since the Palace had initially announced that an in-house inquiry would examine the claims.

The Sussex’s communications secretary at the time, Jason Knauf, made complaints against the duchess back in 2018, accusing her of driving two personal assistants out and diminished the confidence of a third. Her behaviour was deemed “unacceptable” by a senior palace aide, London News Time reports.

Meghan denied the allegations.

Palace sources told The Sunday Times: “The actual worst incidences haven’t come out. There are some harrowing stories to tell.”

Responding to the allegations earlier this month, Meghan’s spokesperson said: “The duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma.”

  • Meghan Markle told Oprah her first job was serving frozen yogurt at Humphrey Yogart in LA.

Meghan Markle’s first job was serving frozen yogurt at a store in LA when she was 13, she told Oprah Winfrey in an interview that aired on Sunday.

In the interview with Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex spoke about contemplating suicide after getting married, how members of the royal family had conversations about her son Archie’s skin tone, and how Kate Middleton made her cry before her wedding.

In another portion of the interview, Markle briefly mentioned the yogurt store she worked at in Sherman Oaks, California. 

Markle, who announced she was stepping back from the royal family with Harry in January 2020, told Winfrey: “My first job was when I was 13, at a frozen yogurt shop called Humphrey Yogart.”

“I’ve always worked. I’ve always valued independence,” she added.

She didn’t go into any further details in the interview. It’s unclear exactly when Meghan worked at Humphrey Yogart, but she would have been there sometime in 1994.

Markle’s employment at the shop was already known about. According to a report in The Guardian, when Markle was taking the bins out in the parking lot of the yogurt shop, she met her celebrity idol, Yasmine Bleeth, who starred as lifeguard Caroline Holden on “Baywatch.”

Markle blurted out “Oh my God, I loved you in that Soft & Dri commercial,” to which Bleeth answered, “Okay, thank you!,” The Mirror reported in 2017

Bleeth then asked for her name and shook her hand. Markle said: “That moment with Yasmine is exactly what I base every interaction with fans on,” per the Guardian.

Markle’s former boss Paula Sheftel told the Sunday Mirror that Markle didn’t earn much, but she was well-liked by the shop’s customers.

“She earned minimum wage and was very popular with customers. She had to prove she had an outgoing personality and would work well with staff,” Sheftel told the Mirror.

Markle has come a long way since then. After landing various small roles, including appearing as a suitcase girl on the game show “Deal or No Deal,” the actress got her big break on “Suits.” 

Markle married Harry on May 19, 2018 and they had their first child together one year later.

During the Sunday interview, the couple also announced that their second child, due this summer, would be a girl. They haven’t announced an expected due date.
