It’s been just over a year since Meghan Markle married Prince Harry, and the Duchess of Sussex hasn’t wasted any of that time.
At this point, the list of things that Meghan hasn’t accomplished during her time as a member of the royal family might be shorter than the list of all that she’s achieved.
The biggest development, of course, is that Meghan became a mother when she welcomed son Archie last month.
But that’s far from the only feather in the Duchess’ cap.
After all, not every new mum can boast of being called a “nasty” woman by Donald Trump!
Anyway, on this side of the pond it’s easy to imagine that in the UK, Meghan is more popular than all of the best-loved British institutions — we’re talking stuff like the Beatles and extraneous vowels.
We envision her attempting to leave the palace incognito, getting pursued by a mob of adoring fans and attempting to hide behind the cover of a magazine but failing in hilarious fashion because her face is on the cover of the magazine!
So you can imagine our surprise when we learned that Meg’s not even the most popular member of the British family.
Yes, according to a new poll conducted by a British organization called Opinium, Meg has an approval rating of just 37 percent.
By contrast, 62 percent of Brits approve of Kate Middleton, while 70 percent are a-okay with the Queen.
But the most popular royal of all is Prince William, who enjoys a 73 percent approval rating despite recent reports that he cheated on Kate with one of her best friends.
We don’t want to go so far as to say this is definitive evidence that the UK populace is overwhelmingly racist, but it’s a pretty good indication that despite several hundred years of concerted effort, America has not yet cornered the market on bigotry.
The Brits tend to look down their nose at Americans, but every once in a while, something like Brexit or this poll comes along and reminds us that they’re just as dumb as we are.
For further evidence, look no further than the fact that the same poll revealed 63 percent of UK citizens still approve of the royal family as an institution.
“As British politics remains turbulent and its place in Europe uncertain, it’s good to see support for a longstanding British institution,” said one pollster.
That’s one to put it.
Another is that y’all limey mofos are still in love with your classier Kardashians even though you’re not down with the coolest member of the family.
