PLATELL’S PEOPLE: A bitter pill for Harry – Kate is now most popular royal in U.S. 

Did Prince Harry intend to damage William and Kate with the publication of Spare? If so, he will be gratified to know he has succeeded.

An Ipsos Mori poll this week reveals both the Prince and Princess of Wales’s popularity in the UK has fallen: William’s by eight percentage points, Kate’s by seven.

But sweet revenge comes at a devastating price. For the same poll shows that Harry’s popularity has also fallen — along with that of Meghan — and that both of them are now viewed negatively by more than half of the country.

Just like Amy? Beehive yourselves 

Insiders gush over Marisa Abela’s likeness to Amy Winehouse, who she’s playing in a biopic. Really? It takes more than a beehive, matching tattoos and dramatic eyeliner even to begin to capture the tragic beauty and raw wildness of Amy. Let’s just hope Marisa doesn’t sing — or the audience will die a hundred times.

Pampered as they are in the California sunshine, perhaps they don’t care if we Brits abhor the way he has treated his own family and trashed the Crown for financial gain.

After all, this odious exercise in exorcising his demons led to 3.2 million copies of Spare selling worldwide in just one week. But as they drool over the sales, what neither can ignore is the growing opprobrium in their own back yard.

A Newsweek poll this week reveals that their approval ratings have nose-dived in America. In December, before Spare came out, Harry’s rating was +38 while Meghan’s was +23. Today, Harry gets -7 and Megs -13. Newsweek concludes from the poll that ‘after his book publicity tour and the couple’s recent docu-series, Harry & Meghan appeared to collapse their U.S. popularity’.

Indeed, collapsed it so much that Meghan is now less liked in the States than Queen Camilla — a devastating verdict given that Americans canonised Princess Diana and demonised the mistress who destroyed her marriage.

But it gets even worse. Not only is Meghan more likely to be viewed negatively than positively today by other women, the couple’s approval rating has fallen among the 18 to 24 year-olds to whom they most pander. Even snowflakes don’t like people who freeze out their own families.

What a bitter pill it must be for Harry to swallow that Kate is now the most popular royal in America. And William is still the most popular in Britain.

Only a man as stupid and narcissistic as Harry could ever have believed his venge-fest would endear him to anyone. It has now spectacularly backfired and, most disastrously for him, damaged his ‘perfect, perfect, perfect’ wife Meghan.

Very big of you, Andy

So hoarse he could hardly speak after coming back from two sets down to win a five-and-a-half-hour marathon match in the Australian Open, Andy Murray said: ‘My love of the game and respect for it keeps me going.’ That and his ‘big heart’.

When the interviewer said he had a ‘big everything’, Murray quipped: ‘I’m not sure my wife would agree with that!’

Our dour Andy winning us round by cracking risqué jokes — what a comeback!

Love Island’s winner

What a terrible mistake casting the sensationally sexy Maya Jama as the new host of Love Island.

No one does a slow-motion walk like her — the flouncing locks, the bouncing buttocks and trembling bosom, her black slashed dress looking like she’s just been ravaged by Edward Scissorhands.

It’s so unfair. She makes the female contestants look like dormice. And the men can’t look anywhere else.

Faith in police destroyed

So soon after the murder of Sarah Everard, the appalling case of serial rapist policeman David Carrick has shattered the already flimsy trust women have in our male police officers.

Were I now stopped by a cop on the street I would resist arrest and run like hell to a safe place. If a policeman tried to stop me in my car I would drive to the police station, hand myself in — and insist on being interviewed by a woman PC.

Perhaps unwise of Rishi Sunak after Partygate to enter the ‘don’t bring cake to work’ debate, slapping down Food Standards Agency boss Susan Jebb after she claimed it was as bad as passive smoking. The last thing we need reminding of is our PM’s own culpability in Cakegate. 

Rishi is praised for blocking Scotland’s Gender Recognition Bill. It’s not courage but cunning. A headline-grabbing move, it costs nothing, is fairly simple to implement and a vote-winner. A Times poll showed 97 per cent of Brits were against allowing 16-year-olds to self-identify and 66 per cent of Scots back the block

The world’s youngest female leader, New Zealand’s woke Jacinda Ardern, resigns as she didn’t have ‘enough in the tank’ after almost six years in office. Truth is all that political correctness left her tanking in the polls. Lady Thatcher did 11 years and had to be dragged out kicking and screaming.

Surely the real reason Rishi didn’t wear his seatbelt was that our preening peacock PM didn’t want to crush his pristine starched white shirt.

Davos is aptly described as Globalists’ Glastonbury, a billionaires’ trade fair where the likes of Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft and Uber lobby the 2,700 world leaders and 52 heads of state on how we ordinary folk can do our bit to save the planet and meet net zero. Leaders who fly around in private jets and find inventive ways not to pay their fair share of tax like we little people have to.

As if we needed proof of the charade, Tony Blair was there with South African mining billionaire Patrice Motsepe and Gianni Infantino, the gruesome, Qatar-defending president of FIFA.

Gary Lineker was giggling like a schoolgirl after a prankster played a recording of a woman moaning as he was presenting Match Of The Day. He appeared bewildered about what he was hearing. It was the sound of a woman faking an orgasm, Gary, surely you of all people must be used to that by now.

A Dorset hospital asks that during the nurses’ strike, families of patients help out with meal times. Given the inedible slop they serve in the NHS, isn’t that what most families are already doing most days anyway?

 After Romeo Beckham’s star performance playing for Brentford’s B team, observers said he was a ‘perfect hybrid’ of the talents of his famous parents David and Victoria — a football player, a model for Burberry and also ‘an impressive singing voice’.

So there’s one talent he clearly didn’t inherit from mum.

Shakira says she discovered Gerard Pique was cheating after the strawberry jam disappeared while she was on tour — he hates it. If true, shame on his girlfriend Clara Chia Marti for moving into the matrimonial home while Shakira was away.

And good for super-sleuth Shakira, who is clearly not as jam sweet as she looks.

Having already legalised cannabis, Canada’s PM Justin Trudeau will now legalise heroin and crack cocaine, while lecturing citizens to have only two drinks a week as ‘no amount of alcohol is safe’. Nor, perhaps, are two syringes of heroin.

Toy maker David Farquharson is distraught he’s stuck with 500 Liz Truss dog chew dolls to mark her Premiership because by the time they were finished she was out of office. Cheer up, sir, I’ll take 50 off your hands as perfect novelty gift stocking fillers for years to come. And since she broke records as the shortest-serving PM, the toys might be worth something one day. 

The Royal Shakespeare Company explains that actresses will play assassins Brutus and Cassius in its ‘gender-swapping’ production of Julius Caesar as it makes the audience think ‘across intersectional lines of gender, race, class, disability’, and ‘of their own place within [society’s] status quo’.

The run is limited so book early to ensure disappointment.
