Harry and Meghan News: Most Brits WILL watch Netflix shows | Royal | News

The couple signed a multi-million dollar deal with Netflix shortly after stepping away from their royal duties and moving to the US in 2020.

As part of the deal, they are believed to have agreed to let a film crew into their California home to film content for the upcoming series.

Details on the series are yet to be revealed, but the pair were spotted filming Netflix during a visit to New York last September.

It is claimed that the broadcaster would like to make the series available by the end of the year, but sources suggest Meghan and Harry would like it to run until 2023.

In response to the announcement, members of the British public spoke about whether they would watch the show once it aired.

Opinion research company Techne spoke to more than 1,600 members of the public across the UK and asked if they would watch the docu-series.

Of those surveyed, just over half — 54 percent — said they would watch the show.

The results showed that 54 percent of people answered “yes”, 34 percent of people answered “no”, and 12 percent said they did not know if they would watch it.

Female participants were more likely to say “yes” at 57 percent compared to 50 percent of men.

The age group most likely to want to watch the show is people over 64, with 63 percent answering yes.

Techne’s findings also showed that participants who voted to leave during the Brexit referendum were more likely to want to watch the show (57 percent) compared to 53 percent of the remaining voters.

Even though the majority of attendees said they would watch the Netflix series, a separate survey last month found that Meghan and Harry’s popularity has plummeted recently.

According to a YouGov poll, the couple’s popularity was highest the year they married in Windsor and has declined significantly since they split from the royal family two years ago.

Similarly, a survey conducted by Techne exclusively for Express.co.uk found that only 33 percent of respondents had a positive view of Prince Harry, while 56 percent had a negative view of his wife Meghan.

Express.co.uk also recently gave its opinion in another poll when asked if Prince William should help return his little brother to the royal fold.

A whopping 73 percent answered “no”, while 18 percent said “yes” and nine percent answered “don’t know”.

It comes after the Sussexes returned to the UK to take part in the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations earlier this month.

There were rumors that they were going to bring a film crew with them as part of their deal with Netflix.

However, the couple kept a relatively low profile during the four-day royal weekend and didn’t appear to have a camera crew in tow.
