Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are going through a difficult moment. The couple is embroiled in the “racist royal” controversy, in which author Omid Scobie purportedly identified the royal who allegedly made remarks regarding Archie’s skin tone. Harry’s trial against the UK newspapers is still ongoing.
The Sussexes are losing out on a lot of money, to add to their list of failed endeavours. It is also unclear what will happen to their businesses and friendships in Hollywood.
Amidst all of this controversy, Prince Harry has now suffered another severe blow: it seems that nobody wants his name.
Unexpectedly, Prince Harry and Meghan’s new life in the US has become more chaotic. They will now suffer even more financial losses within their Archewell Foundation after losing their multimillion-dollar Spotify deal a few months ago.
The Sussexes saw a $11 million drop in donations to the nonprofit in 2022 compared to the previous year, as reported by multiple news outlets. This information was revealed in a tax filing on Tuesday. Additionally, the revenue at the end of the year was $673,000 as opposed to over $9 million in 2021.
About two years ago, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle established the Archewell Foundation. Its mission is to “uplift and unite communities, both local and global, online and offline,” according to its website.
According to a recent Newsweek poll, Prince Harry and Meghan are becoming more popular in the US, but it doesn’t seem like they are as well-liked in the UK. Not their names, based on the most recent list of baby names, anyway.
“Harry” and “Meghan” are falling further and further down the charts in the most recent list of popular baby names in the UK, which was recently published by the parenting and pregnancy website Babycentre.
Harry has dropped 16 spots to rank No. 31 from the previous year, and Meghan has dropped 116 spots to rank No. 682.
Even though “Harry” and “Meghan” aren’t as well-liked as they once were, they can take solace in the knowledge that “Charles” and “William” aren’t the only ones who feel this way.
In the midst of the Spare revelations, no names fared well outside the royal divide. “Harry” fell to number 31 in the top 100, “Meghan” experienced a decline in registrations, and “Charles” and “William” also experienced a decline. “Princess” was a recent addition to the top 100, but Babycentre noted on their website that “this could be a nickname registered for a baby before they are born, rather than a royal influence.”
George comes in at number eight and “Archie” comes in at number seventeen among the most popular baby names for boys. Regretfully, “Elizabeth” was not included in the top 100 list, nor did “Katherine” or “Kate.”
Aside from the drama surrounding baby names, Christmas is quickly approaching, and all the signs point to Harry and Meghan not spending the holiday with the royal family for the fourth consecutive year.
