Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netflix Shows Might Be Snubbed by Most Brits

A new survey reveals that a many as 90 percent of Brits aren't planning to watch Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's shows and movies on Netflix.


If it feels like everyone in the world is excited to watch the #content that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (opens in new tab) create under their new deal with Netflix, well, that just means you haven't read the results of this survey yet.

According to The Sun (opens in new tab), a YouGov survey in the United Kingdom revealed that excited for the Sussexes' Netflix content (opens in new tab) is actually pretty low among Brits (or, at least among those who took the survey anyway). In the survey, 64 percent of respondents said they were "not interested at all" in watching shows produced by the Sussexes and another 20 percent were "not very interested" in the couple's content. Only three percent of those surveyed said they were "very interested" in the series produced by Harry and Meghan (opens in new tab), while another nine percent admitted to being "fairly interested." Everyone else who took the survey said they "didn't know" yet if they would watch the Sussexes' Netflix shows. According to The Sun, this means that a total of nine out of ten Brits don't plan on watching the royals' content.

Men were less interested than women in watching the couple's shows (70 percent of men reported having no interest, while only 59 percent of women felt that way).

We'll definitely be watching though, FWIW.
