According to the YouGov survey, the Duke of Sussex topped the list of the nation's most popular royals with 77 per cent of people saying that they are huge fans of the Prince.

On his recent trip down under with new bride, Meghan Markle, Harry showed what a kind, sweet and caring man he is, taking the time to speak and bond with people from all walks of life, and showing compassion at all times.

You are the backbone of this country." - Thank you to everyone that came out in the rain in Dubbo to meet The Duke and Duchess of Sussex! #RoyalVisitAustralia #Australia #Dubbo

His total devotion for mum-to-be Meghan has only further endeared him to royal fans, it seems.

Speaking of the Duchess of Sussex, she came in at sixth place – not bad considering she has only been a royal for around six months.
