Generation Z is turning against Prince Harry as his popularity wanes among 18-24 year olds amid Spare
Prince Harry’s popularity among young people in Britain fell to an all-time low in the days leading up to the release of his bombastic memoir, a new poll has shown.
According to a YouGov poll conducted between Jan. 5 and 6, members of “Generation Z” appear to be changing their attitudes towards the Duke, with 18-24 year olds having neither a negative nor a positive opinion of the youngest have the king’s son.
Traditionally, Harry has relied on the younger generation as a stronghold of support that has helped bolster his popular image, and just a month ago he had a net approval rating of 20 per cent in the group.
But by the end of last week, with just days until the release of Spare, that support had plummeted to zero – suggesting the group’s opinion of the Duke had plummeted.

Almost two-thirds of Brits have a negative opinion of the Duke of Sussex, up from 58% in May, with just a quarter seeing him in a positive light, YouGov poll shows.
Harry’s net public goodwill is at an all-time low at -38, with his wife Meghan at -42.
Despite the duke’s waning popularity, his wife still has a positive net preference score of 10 among 18-24 year olds, but it has fallen from a peak of 55 in 2017.
Harry has also been targeted by younger social media users following his explosive revelations and deeply personal attacks on the royal family.

Harry’s book has made headlines for allegations that he was physically assaulted by the Prince of Wales, his revelation that he killed 25 Taliban members during the war in Afghanistan, his use of drugs including cocaine, cannabis and magic mushrooms and the loss of his Virginity in a field behind a pub to a cougar “horse enthusiast” when he was 17.
Referring to his dad, Harry said his ‘pa’ was ‘never cut out’ for being a single parent but has tried, and told Tom Bradby in an interview broadcast on ITV on Sunday night that he will ‘always love’ his dad .
In his autobiography, the Duke said: “One night at dinner at Highgrove, Pa and I spoke at length of what I had suffered.
“I gave him the details, told him story after story. Towards the end of the meal, he looked down at his plate and said quietly, “I suppose it’s my fault. I should have gotten you help years ago.” I assured him it wasn’t his fault, but I appreciate the apology.
He also questioned whether Charles had the “patience” and “time” for parenthood.
“He always seemed like he wasn’t quite ready for parenthood: the responsibility, the patience, the time. Even he, though a proud man, would have admitted it. But single parent? Pa was never made for this. To be fair, he tried,” he wrote.

Of his affection for Charles, Harry told Bradby, “Of course he’s my father. I will always love him.’
Describing the king as “liking his routines,” Harry adds, “He wasn’t the kind of father to play endless fan bases or throw a ball long after dark.”
But when a picture of Harry romping naked in Las Vegas just weeks before his deployment to Afghanistan splattered newspapers, he said, to his surprise and relief, Charles was being soft.
“He felt for me, he said, he was there even though he’s never been on a front page naked,” said Harry.
The king’s youngest son’s net likeability rating among Labor voters in 2019 is minus seven, while among 18-24 year olds the proportion of positive and negative views of him was equal (41 per cent).
Meghan has a score of -11 among 2019 Labor voters and -30 among Remain voters, with -81 and -72 among 2016 Conservative voters and Leave voters respectively.
In TV interviews, the Duke said he “doesn’t text” his brother, described the queen consort as “the bad guy” and slammed “family members” for having a “really horrible reaction” when the queen died.
Speaking to Bradby, he denied branding the royals as racists and accused his family of “having sex with the devil”.
YouGov surveyed 1,693 adults in the UK late last week.
