The lack of donations to the foundation is a clear message for them and they have received it with sadness. Archewell’s continuity is on the line, but it’s not the only thing at risk due to the popularity of the Sussexes: their latest project, a free podcast series with Spotify, is also on the air.

The news, of course, is not a surprise for Harry and Meghan, since last September a British survey was carried out whose data were not at all flattering for the couple. According to the international group YouGov (specialized in data analysis and market research), the popularity of the prince went from 43% to 34% and that of Meghan from 29% to 26% after the inflammatory interview they gave Oprah Winfrey. Two years earlier, Henry of England’s popularity ratings were 71% acceptance, while his wife’s were 55%.
