ALMOST half of Brits think Meghan and Harry should be exiled from the Royal Family because they have “made their bed”, a poll has revealed.
Four in 10 believe the pair should be permanently ousted – with more than half branding their controversial biography Finding Freedom “inappropriate”.
In a survey of 2,000 adults, 57 per cent of people also slammed the couple’s airing of private matters generally as the same.
The explosive unofficial biography, due out in August, reveals intimate details of Harry and Meghan's decision to ditch their royal roles – dubbed ‘Megxit’.
It details how relations between the Sussexes and the Cambridges grew so bitter that by March the couples were snubbing each other.
And authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand also allege that Prince William warned his brother not to be “blindsided by lust” over “this girl” Meghan.
The book, serialised by The Times and The Sunday Times, also claims Harry was so keen to leave the Royal Family that he initially wanted to reject the Queen’s offer of a trial period, with the option to return after 12 months if he changed his mind.
Most of those polled were outraged by the tell-all book because it was disrespectful to the Queen and the rest of the family.
Two thirds said they had been saddened to watch Harry and Meghan’s relationship with the royal family deteriorate so publicly – particularly with the Queen.
And as a result, 40 per cent think they have “made their bed” and should be booted out of The Firm for good.
The overall popularity of the royals has plummeted since Prince Andrew was linked to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
This has only been worsened by Harry and Meghan’s decision to move to LA, with almost a third admitting that ‘Megxit’ had negatively impacted their view of the Royal Family overall.
Prince Andrew is the UK’s least favourite royal, with Meghan second from bottom.
On top of leaving her royal duties, the duchess has faced criticism for “setting up” the occasional paparazzi photo after complaining of wanting a private life.
Meghan and her agent were yesterday accused of colluding with a photographer to set up shots of her entering a London restaurant in 2015 – a year before she met Harry.
And her dad this week warned the royal couple: “This is the worst time in the world to be whining.”
He blasted the timing of the Finding Freedom – with more than 150,000 Covid-19 deaths across the United States.
The Queen remains the UK’s favourite royal, with Prince Harry in second place – despite the public backlash.
Kate is the third most popular, with husband William close behind, followed by Princess Anne and then Prince Charles.
More than a third of Brits think it is time the monarchy was abolished and the UK became a republic, but 41 per cent are against the idea.
