Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have often gained support overseas for their outspoken nature and sometimes controversial views, but now reports claim their popularity in American seems to be waning.

American commentator Megyn Kelly spoke openly about the couple on GB News and argued that the divide between supporters of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is more political in the US than it is in the UK.

Speaking to journalist Dan Wootton on the news programme, Megyn explained that US Republicans are becoming rather sick and tired of The Duke and Duchess.

She also mentioned that the couple's decision to name their baby daughter Lilibet Diana ruffled some feathers.

Presenter Dan said: "Are the people in the US believing Meghan Markle, are they buying her stories?

"We hear again now that there is this conjecture about whether she actually made this call to the Queen.

"In America does Meghan Markle still maintain support?" he asked.

Megyn replied: "I think perhaps the American people are more supportive than the Brits are at this point.

"But I think it is also divided by political party over here.

"The Republicans, in my estimation, after speaking with them and watching some of the polling, they have had enough of their nonsense, Meghan and Harry's."

But the commentator claimed that the royal couple still have support from the democrats in America.

She added: "Whereas the democrats love them because they are pro-woke, are victims, want to talk about their mental health problems all the time, even though they want to do it from their palace in Montecito.

"Some on the left, not normal liberals, but some of them that consider themselves woke are kind of into that."

Megyn also said there is controversy surrounding the name the couple opted to choose for their daughter.

She expressed: "They are naming their daughter after the matriarch of the monarchy.

"The monarchy that was racists, bullying, cold, prison, the ones that were racist against her first child.

"Somehow, they nonetheless decided to name their daughter after the matriarch of this family.

"It kind of makes you wonder whether there is any truth to the original allegations."

She finished off by saying: "I think Meghan and Harry should have just gone with Diana.

"You call the Royal Family a bunch of racists, you describe living in the Royal Family as living in a prison and you criticise the family

"Maybe at that point, you have sacrificed, waived your right to name your offspring off of the matriarch."

Last week, a royal insider spoke about Harry's decision on his baby's name choice and suggested that he always wanted to name his children after his mother and the Queen.

The insider explained: "Harry has never made a secret of his wish to have a family of his own, often talking about how it would be great to have a boy and a girl, that he could name after the two most important women in his life, the Queen and his mother.

"In the end, he mentioned Lilibet to Meghan, when discussing potential names for their children and she loved the idea."
