Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who recently welcomed a baby girl, have been voted the ‘most respectful Royals’ in a poll. 

Yahoo News conducted the survey and claim they asked 1,000 teenagers and young adults to take part.

Although The Queen topped the list with a whopping 25 percent of the vote, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex came second and third.

This means the Royal couple have surpassed Prince William and Kate Middleton, who apparently won only 10 and 11 percent of the vote. 

The results may come as a surprise to some, as Prince Harry and Markle have made headlines in the past few months for speaking out against The Firm. 

In March, the couple was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey and they dropped several bombshells about what life is really like inside the Royal Family.

At one point, they claimed there had been a ‘conversation’ about the skin tone of their son, Archie, before he was born. Markle said there had been discussions about ‘what that would mean and look like’.

However, the couple have never disclosed which member of the Royal Family made the comment.

Dr Nihara Krause, who is the founder and chief of the mental health charity Stem4, believes they may have won people’s respect down to the fact they’ve shown ‘bravery’ and ‘resilience’. 

The chief explained: “To earn the respect of young people today you don’t need to earn a fortune or have good looks.

“It’s far more important that you show bravery, resilience, and compassion for others and for nature.

“Those are certainly qualities The Queen shares with some of the other names on this list such as David Attenborough and Marcus Rashford.”
