Depending on how you see it, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex either made a very bold move or a very hasty move leaving the royal family earlier this year. And because they did, their popularity seems to be wavering, particularly in the U.K.
Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of the monthly royal magazine, Majesty, spoke about her own findings on the "Royally Obsessed" podcast.
Seward, who hasn't put the couple on a cover since August 2019, said she spoke with contacts at HELLO! magazine, who said they were seeing the same thing with their covers.
"We stopped having Harry and Meghan on the cover a while ago," Ms Seward said. "It just wasn't selling, the magazine wasn't selling when they were on the cover."
Seward also referred to a national poll that showed the couple's popularity at its lowest ever.
"I think it's because the British people feel that Harry's deserted us, and Meghan is probably the reason he's done so. Rather than saying wasn't he clever, wasn't he great, he got out."
Seward's thoughts appear to echo those of many.
"The perception is that he was pretty lucky to be where he was in the first place. There aren't too many royal princes around so why did he have to give it all up? Yet he still seems to be living off his name, that's the reason that all these things have come to them. He wants to take advantage of all that but not put in the hard work on the other side. I think that is the perception, though I think it's very different in the U.S."
