The royal family seems to be more popular than ever lately. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had the first majorly anticipated wedding event of the year in May, and Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank followed that up with their royal wedding in October.
Of course, while the royals are beloved by their fans, some members of the family are more popular than others. Polling site YouGov conducted a survey to determine the rank of the most popular royals, basing its research on responses from the British public and using the feedback to devise a positive opinion rating.
Here are YouGov’s findings of the most popular members of the royal family, ranked from least to most popular.
Prince Andrew is the 15th most popular royal, landing him in last place.
The Duke of York had a widely publicized royal wedding to his now ex-wife Sarah Ferguson in 1986, but his popularity seems to have waned in recent years.
