Bloomberg: British people want Prince Harry, but not Meghan, to go to the Chubbly

I’m aghast at how many “polls” are being conducted on or about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Like… they’re not taking taxpayer money, they’re not running for office, they’re sitting in Montecito and raising their children and doing successful commercial projects. That’s it. Why the f–k are media outlets constantly and feverishly hiring pollsters to conduct these inane polls about Harry and Meghan? Why can’t British people keep the Sussexes’ names out of their g–damn mouths for two seconds? Well, now Bloomberg has gotten in on the action. BONKERS. Bloomberg conducted a poll of British people as to whether they’d like to see the Sussexes attend the coronation. GMAFB.

Most British people want Prince Harry to attend King Charles III’s coronation in May, but would like his wife Meghan Markle and Prince Andrew to stay away. A Bloomberg/Deltapoll survey showed 41% of people support Prince Harry attending the coronation, with 37% saying he should not attend, and 22% saying they did not know.

The results were less positive for his wife, the Duchess of Sussex. The poll said that if Harry did attend, 43% said she should stay home. However, another 39% of people endorsed her attendance.

“An immediate decision on whether the duke and duchess will attend will not be disclosed by us at this time,” according to a spokesperson for the couple. They’re reportedly mulling over options now.

The survey found even less support for Prince Andrew to attend, with 46% saying he should not be there, 36% saying he should, and 17% saying they did not know.

The survey was conducted by Deltapoll with 1,060 people in Great Britain between February 24 and 27, before it was confirmed that Prince Harry and his wife Meghan had received an invitation.

[From Bloomberg]

The absolute f–king audacity is mindblowing. The audacity of British folks to say that Harry “should” come to this clownshow Chubbly but he should leave his wife at home. Frankly, after three years of this sh-t, I’m disgusted and I hope Harry and Meghan are too. The Windsors have layered on so much toxicity and made the Sussexes the centerpiece of all coronation conversations, all for… this. All to encourage Harry to come and leave Meghan at home, so that his family can abuse him in public.

    Bloomberg has been trash for years. And without Meghan and Harry the royals would be getting pummeled for all of the work they don’t do. They use the Sussexs’ for clout and I hope they never go back to that disgusting island.

    • Peggy Campbell says:

      I will always believe these polls are conducted at senior citizen homes and villages.

    • Cara says:

      It is not a scientific poll if you are cherry picking the participants.

    • kirk says:

      I had no idea Bloomberg had fallen to this level of British insanity to conduct popularity polls on celebrities. I used to subscribe, but many years ago. Thanks to Celebitchy for exposing worthlessness of a formerly decent publication.

    • Leesa says:

      Also – I’m not sure who is analyzing these polls, but the results for Harry and Meghan are almost exactly the same, 39% who support her going and 41% who support him going? That’s definitely within the margin of error. Definitely trying to make something out of nothing.

    • Selene says:

      1,060 people do not speak for a whole country.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        My thoughts as well. How could you possibly support these “findings” based on 1,060 people?? Are they high??

      • Mei says:

        This. I’m British and the gutter press are foul. I know a lot of people who think so, in glad at least there’s big radio stations like LBC that are sensible and not racist, sorry, ‘left wing’. I want them to stay away for their own sanity and to not ‘draw attention away from the actual event’ or whatever bs, but I also don’t want the media to claim a win when he/they don’t attend. It’s a proper catch-22 situation

  3. Nev says:

    Stay home Duchess!!!!

    • Tessa says:

      Maybe Kate should stay home. Meghan and harry should go as a couple or stay home as a couple. Shunning a wife is gross

      • Anna says:

        There is a lot people who think husbands and wives aren’t really family….

      • Dhianna says:

        KKKate would walk for miles and miles before she would miss out on showing off her wigs and clothes. Dont forget the jewelry…..gotta show off BIG BLUE and the crowns. LOL

      • usavgjoe says:

        I agree with you.

    • Lisa says:

      Most people are probably saying she should not come for her own safety. There has been so much hatred riled up against her, who knows what would happen

  4. ThatsNotOkay says:

    Imagine: after all the royal spin the Rota put in the papers about how Harry should leave his wife or at least leave her at home and attend the coronation, public opinion polls conducted by those very papers say that Harry should attend the wastrel event solo. Funny how that works.

    • DouchesOfCornwall says:

      Everything needs to be about the sussexes because the royal family seems to be nothing without them… i hope the sussexes will celebrate archie instead and send out a new group pic of archie on the 20th with grandma doria, tyler, elton, adele, ed, harry s, the spicegirls and the brookbanks in montecito. But they won’t because they’re too classy.

      • ThatsNotOkay says:

        We’d forgive them that one petty though, wouldn’t we? I’d LOVE to see that. Add in a Beyoncé and it’d be a KO in perpetuity.

  5. I tend to believe the people that have been showing up (not the plants) to the events recently and booing their a**es off. They are the pulse of that Salty Isle.

    • Mary Pester says:

      SUSAN as you know I’m a Brit and I would love to know who these 1000 people are that were asked and where they live! Because no one asked me, because I would have said, “my preference is that there is NO clowning and the millions wasted on a fashion parade for Khate and a victory lap for camzilla should go to good causes instead. And if Harry comes meghan should as his wife be with him. But, they should both stay home as there is nothing for them to come for. Charles has never been a good father and will be a worse king, so why are they crowning the idiot

      • Maybe those 1000 people who voted were from the daily fail, the sun and any other tabloid that are anti Harry and Meg. Wouldn’t put it past them.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      Poll numbers are massaged to the wanted answer. Interpreted for the desired result. Redfield & Wilton shared how some of their US polls came about. Through effin election info.

      Just imagine, if all of the money, that’s been spent on these dumbass popularity polls by the BM/BRF over, let’s say the last 5 years, were actual donations to food banks in the UK. The less fortunate would be less hungry.

      Again, this shows & supports everything Harry has been saying.

  6. Feeshalori says:

    If Charles cannot support his son, then I see no reason why his son should support him by going to the coronation. And either the two of them go or not at all, this is not a negotiation as to who should attend nor should there be any poll, this is their marriage. Bloomberg has hit the bottom of the barrel now.

    • Lolo86lf says:

      Agree. When are people in Great Salty Britain going to realize Harry is married to Meghan and he LOVES her. Why should he go to the Clowning alone? There is no negotiation, he chooses his family over everything else.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Lolo86lf, which Harry has repeatedly done since they became a couple in 2017. Yet they have this idea that Harry will leave Meghan behind as this is what the public wants??

        The delusions are growing each and every day on Salty Island of Petty and Vindictive.

      • Deering24 says:

        These folks still don’t accept that Harry and Meghan exist in the same plane, much less that they are married with kids. And they never will. 😛

  7. Jais says:

    If I was Harry and saw this headline, I’d really just want to say F-U. To churn out these kind of headlines about Meghan and then be surprised or disappointed that Harry doesn’t want to be around y’all.

  8. Brassy Rebel says:

    Is this even real? Who would respond to such a ridiculous “poll”?

    • notasugarhere says:

      The same pre-selected, xenophobic, racist group of 1000 people YouGov polls all the time.

      • Renae says:

        Probably polling in Northern Ireland. Had in-laws visiting from there and the dislike of Meghan is palpable. They think Kate is the Queen incarnate! (They are not crazy about Queen Con(sort) ). There is zero reasoning with them and they are monarchies thru and thru .So, I’m not surprised by those numbers.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        “The poll said that if Harry did attend, 43% said she should stay home. However, another 39% of people endorsed her attendance.”

        If this is true, the monarchy is in BIG trouble.

        Looking at the polling on Meghan:

        Stay home: 43%

        Come to the Con-A-Nation: 39%

        Do Not Know, Do Not Care or No Opinion: 18%

        39% + 18% = 57% which is a majority.

        The majority of those polled either want Meghan to attend or really do give a ‘Fat Rat’s Cracker” about any of this Con-A-Nation nonsense. This does not speak well for KCIII’s reign or the future of the British Monarchy.

        The 18% who “Do Not Know, Do Not Care or have No Opinion” are more dangerous to the British monarchy than a 10 million strong Sussex Squad. the Sussex Squad does not throw eggs at Cams and Chucky nor for the most part do they carry protest signs., Anti-monarchist republicans throw eggs and carry protest signs.

  9. equality says:

    Michael Bloomberg is involved in ES with PW. This is yet another media outlet that thinks people are stupid. What is the significant difference between the 39% who say Meghan should attend and the 41% who say Harry should attend? It’s all in how they phrase crap and people buy it.

    • Emily says:

      Considering most polls have a margin of error of about 5% there is no difference really. If you ran the same poll tomorrow you could get the opposite result!

      • equality says:

        What a simple poll like this also doesn’t take into account is the reason people feel this way. They could be pro-H&M and feel they shouldn’t associate with the RF who snubs them.

      • kirk says:

        No margin of error. No confidence interval. No cross tabs. No rationale for conducting popularity polls on people ordained by God and heredity to rule over Brittania. But still, sounds like an island that won’t be going on my travel list anytime soon.

    • notasugarhere says:

      ‘Michael Bloomberg is involved in ES with PW.’

      ding ding ding ding ding. This poll is just more sh!t coming from KP and W&K.

      • Lady Esther says:

        I was waiting for someone to mention this. It’s obvious, isn’t it, that KP is the source of this supposed poll that as others point out shows nothing?

        I still can’t believe that a British prince and heir to the throne has been quoted as saying “I really, really, really, really x1000 (I forget how many reallys) fucking hate her” about his own brother-in-law’s wife, and that he’d be happy if Harry “never set foot in the UK again.” What a disgrace.

        And another British prince is still fussing about in which taxpayer-funded residence he will live while doing bugger all, what he will do to keep himself amused other than riding horses through Windsor, whether or not he wears Garter robes at the Chubbly and how his teddy bears are organised. Sigh.

        “With the rich and mighty, always a little patience…” but come on. This is way beyond normal behaviour. It’s pathological the way William goes after the Sussexes….and the less said about Andrew, the better…The Queen and Philip (not to mention Charles) has a lot to answer for in being a parent.

  10. Tessa says:

    surveyed probably are ones who slammed Meghan from the get go. Yet it’s ok for Andy to go . This is racist and sexist.

  11. Rapunzel says:

    Um….does this poll specify which people think Meg shouldn’t attend because it’s not safe for her due to the toxic hate campaign against her in the press? Or does it single out the folks who think Meg shouldn’t attend because Harry’s family *cough* Willy *cough* has a 24/7 rage boner for her?

    This poll is badly structured and doesn’t mean what the press is trying to say it does.

    • Brassy Rebel says:

      I think it’s a “push poll”. Bloomberg’s involvement with 🌍💩 may be the 🗝️.

    • Blithe says:

      True. Especially with a forced choice poll, that doesn’t allow people to elaborate on their answers, “shouldn’t attend” could mean quite a lot of things, including: “she has better things to do, and ‘shouldn’t attend’ without proper security”.

      Reports like this are particularly inflammatory without being informative— but I imagine many of their readers either don’t know or don’t care, and like the pseudo-scientific sound of “poll results “.

      It’s funny that polling results have become increasingly popular in more tawdry publications, just as fewer people— thanks to caller ID — answer phone calls from random numbers. That suggests that polls (particularly telephone and unsolicited online polls) will increasingly reflect views of people who differ from the general population that they are purported to sample.
      (Sorry for the nerd post, but I’m really angry about how polls are being deliberately and increasingly misused.)

  12. s808 says:

    I know they’re a team but wooo. If I were her I’d point to the point to the poll and be like “The People have spoken.” and go cuddle my babies 🤣

    • Tessa says:

      Degrading Meghan that way by the media is unspeakable. They would win if she stayed home. And the divorce spin would be ou there

  13. DARK says:

    From what I have seen on twitter most people don’t want an expensive coronation at all.

  14. HeatherC says:

    My opinion doesn’t matter, who goes or doesn’t go. I have a preference of course (stay home! stay safe!) But this is a decision that I hope they are discussing with a therapist, there are so many angles to it and so much trauma already to deal with when the word “monarchy” or “institution” is even mentioned.

  15. Noor says:

    I hope Charles would reflect what is the point of starting and maintaining the “war” with Meghan and Harry . How does it benefit him as a father and King.

  16. Amy Bee says:

    Well, the British blame Meghan for Harry leaving so it’s not surprising. Whatever.

    • Tessa says:

      Not all the British. The same perhaps that were deriding Meghan since she was first seen with harry. These in dm comments.where are the surveys about if Andy should go. Oh that’s right…

      • Amy Bee says:

        Well, the British haven’t exactly vocal in the support of Meghan.

      • Tessa says:

        Why must they be vocal. I have seen in some comments sections negativity to posters who deride Meghan. And harry .

      • TurquoiseGem says:

        @Tessa, thank you.

        This is so tiresome and untrue. Not all British people are against Meghan, no matter what dubious polls, our squalid tabloid media and any number of rabid opinion merchants have to say.

      • Brassy Rebel says:

        To be fair, the British people are the targets of massive amounts of propaganda. It comes from literally all the media, not a few right wing outlets like in the States. I’m sure it’s extremely hard to crawl out from under the sludge of lies they’re buried in. But I do wish more would try.

      • EBS says:

        I’d like for the monarchy to be removed tomorrow. But I have to stick up for British people here – most people here are trying to pay the rent/mortgage, keep their children fed and keep the heating on at the moment. The monarchy is not people’s primary focus.

  17. Wendy says:

    Maybe this has been done, but I’d like to see some polling about the RF new secret weapons – Camilla’s kids and grandkids and their roles in the Coronation. Have they polled what the British people think about calling Camilla Queen? Is this popular? It seems more relevant than constantly polling H&M.

    • Feeshalori says:

      Yes, since Charles and Camilla have a more relevant role in the monarchy, they should be polling more about them. And I’d love it if those kids could be bribed in dropping that canopy on her head at the ceremony.

  18. Fifty-50 says:

    Eh. I think it’s more that the writer, Conrad Quilty-Harper, writes fluffly lifestyle pieces in the UK. Example of one of his groundbreaking stories: Inflation Hits London Barber Shops With the £100-Plus Haircut, Is It Worth the Price?

    Truly revolutionary stuff.

  19. Amy Bee says:

    I think the British people are going to be disappointed when Meghan turns up with Harry at the coronation. I don’t want them to go but given the news today, I think they will be going.

    • Tessa says:

      There are British people who like Meghan. The critics in the media say most do not like her bit where is the definitive proof.

      • Amy Bee says:

        Well, they’re very quiet.

      • TurquoiseGem says:

        Even if Brits were to stand on our doorsteps, loudhailers at the ready in support of Meghan, I’m sure some would still say we’re not being vocal enough…

        May each of us who wants to support this radiant, kind and beautiful lady, do so in the way we feel we best can.

      • SarahCS says:

        I also wonder about wording/interpretation.

        If I were polled on this I would say they should both stay away for their own sakes, not because I don’t think they should be invited/allowed to attend. And yes, even more so for Meghan, she owes these awful people nothing.

    • JanetDR says:

      We have to remember that some of these polls are in the equivalent of the Enquirer and don’t mean any more than a Faux News poll. It doesn’t mean everyone, or even a lot!

  20. Over it says:

    Well Bloomberg and all these other F-wits can just go F off. Harry and Meghan are married and what these poles want or don’t want is not even on the top 99 of the list of things they care about.

  21. CherriePie84 says:

    You know what, the pollsters don’t want Meghan to attend the chubbly and I don’t either! As a matter of fact I don’t want Harry to go. I hope that the Sussexes stay away for their own mental health and personal safety. But at the end of the day, it’s their decision to make and I can only pray that they make the right one and that they will be safe either way. The rest of the unroyal clan just go f*ck off. I said it.

  22. TheWigletOfWails says:

    They keep proving Harry’s point. They say they welcomed Meghan with open arms but they’ve been trying (and failing) to separate her from her husband since they were first linked together. I know Harry said he’s on a digital diet but these stories are everywhere. If I were him, I’m not putting out any statement regarding the chubbly and I’m not attending. Afterwards, I’m citing security concerns for my family as my reason for not going.

  23. Cessily says:

    The BRF and their propaganda arm of the Rota have literally done everything in their power to vilify Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex for almost 7years now. Enough is enough. The hearing against the tabloids can’t come soon enough. I hope it bankrupts them and brings to light just who is doing all the briefings and leaks once and for all in court records.

    • Jojo says:

      Agree. It’s just common or garden stalking and intimidation of a private person now. If this sustained level of harassment had been from an individual, for this length of time, that person would be in prison now.

  24. Well Wisher says:

    One can sense the desperation within the media for the upcoming event.

    Why not ask the following questions and prepare for any eventuality??

    What if large parts of the viewing public decide to tune out?
    Who, within the family, has recently garnered the most attention??
    Why did the person did so, inspite of manufactured consent??
    Is that still a thing??
    What about transference as coping?? Does making Meghan a 🎯, really the way to go??
    Hatred, in all its forms do not produce lasting unity??
    Does it inspire the people who hate to shop??

    I can remember distinctly that William reached out to Bloomberg for a ‘UN-invite” to reclaimed his inherited spotlight.

    Eventually, he went to Boston, where that went well according to the 390+ persons who tuned in to watch.
    I hope the numbers are better for the coronation.
    Why wouldn’t King Charles let William be happy by cutting all ties??

    Who would blame Harry for wanting a friendly aura in the face of social and other abuses from his extended family??

    The interest lies in Harry and Meghan..

  25. Jay says:

    I think it’s interesting that even for this preselected group of Yougov respondents, who are about as pro-royalist as you can get, so many of them still think Harry and or Meghan “should” attend.

    Whether or not that means they want them to attend in order to be belittled and humiliated, or whether they genuinely believe that the coronation is important and should include the Sussexes is not clear. But I hope it’s worrying for the royals.

  26. Anna says:

    Will Smith

  27. Hairpin says:

    They’ve smeared their names so that when KCII orders their execution they hopefully won’t have the same legacy as Diana. I can’t believe how openly the crown is working with the media to aid in the death of these two.

  28. Bland oatmeal says:

    Isn’t Bloomberg the guy who planned William’s earthshot flop at Boston?

    • Feeshalori says:

      Yes, NYC ‘s billionaire former mayor. You can tell the type of man he is by the company he keeps.

      • Deering24 says:

        Just his awful sorely-unlamented tenure as NYC’s mayor says everything one needs to know about him. There’s a reason he was called “Giuliani, Part 2) 😛

  29. NG_76 says:

    This whole situation really puts them in a bad light. I mean most of knew Harry marrying a WOC wasn’t going to over well but this is just like what I expected times 100. It’s so disheartening that this kind of vitriol and this racism is still so prevalent in 2023 it genuinely scares me! And its everywhere!!

  30. QuiteContrary says:

    Looking at the top photo, it’s clear who the truly regal one is. Camilla and Kate look like cheap wannabes.

  31. Gina says:

    Here were the questions

    Do you want the Sussexes to come?
    If Meghan cannot come, do you want Harry to come?
    Do you care?

    Do you want PA there?
    Really!?! !?!

  32. AC says:

    After the last US mid-terms , No one believes in polls.

  33. AC says:

    I just seem to notice a lot more of the younger generation US travel bloggers are skipping London these days . I was watching a young travel blogger with almost 1 million subscribers yesterday mention that it’s weird to be in London esp after the HM documentary, she also said most of the US are team HM as she is. Every one of them seem to all go to Paris instead (I also felt everyone went to Paris last year inc me lol). Do you think old school Bloomberg , Fox News, the BBC etc would poll generation Y and Z. This generation Prob don’t know what a poll is lol…

  34. MikeB says:

    Perhaps Bloomberg could have clarified why, exactly, the British people don’t want Meghan. What has Meghan done to generate the level of hate poured onto her by the tabloids and the so called experts? I have never seen any reason for this level of hatred.

  35. Lilycat says:

    Guys—stay home. Even the concert is going to be full of C list celebrities. It’s not worth the risk or stress.

    • Pam says:

      You’ll notice that in the days of Diana they ALWAYS got top talent at these types of concerts…no more…

  36. Saucy&Sassy says:

    Well, if I were H&M I would use the poll results: The Duke & Duchess of Sussex have been made aware of the extremely high security risk when they are in the UK. In addition, a recent poll indicated that less than 50% of the people of the UK wish their attendance at the Clowning. In accordance with the security risk and to honor the feelings of the people of the UK, they will not be attending the Firm’s event: The Clowning.

    It’s clear that the brf and bm do not want H&M there. What else can you conclude given the evidence?

    KFC & Fails have already snubbed the Sussexes by not being in attendance at Princess Lili’s christening which was clearly a FAMILY event. Does H&M need to be in attendance at a FIRM event? It’ll be interesting to see what happens.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      @Saucy&Sassy –

      “he Duke & Duchess of Sussex have been made aware of the extremely high security risk when they are in the UK. In addition, a recent poll indicated that less than 50% of the people of the UK wish their attendance at the Clowning. In accordance with the security risk and to honor the feelings of the people of the UK, they will not be attending the Firm’s event”


    • Cassie says:

      Saucy andSassy I agree exactly with what you have just said 👏

  37. Pam says:

    I think either one of two things should happen. Either they both go or they both stay home. If he just goes, then that feeds into the haters’ desire for her to go hide somewhere, so that they can pretend she doesn’t exist.

    • Jojo says:

      Wishful thinking…I wonder what they’d do if Meghan rocked up on her own looking fashion fabulous as always. She could politely relay Harry’s apologies to KC, explaining he was busy supervising a birthday party so couldn’t make it. She could then go on to comport herself with her trademark class, decorum and effortless chic at the ceremony, just as she has done at all other recent royal events. Flight home straight after the clowning ceremony,… sorry, really can’t stay on for the concert….lovely to see you all…congrats on the new fancy hats etc. etc.

      Willy would literally explode in an incandescent blast of anger & frustration and Kate’s face would permanently contort into resting Karen mode and never reset.

      Not serious, obviously, it’s not safe for her to even consider going alone. But it is the only scenario never mentioned and it would so pi** them all off.

  38. Bisynaptic says:

    Bloomberg is getting in on the Sussex gaslighting action. 41% is not “most”. And (their reporting is obfuscating, so it’s hard to tell exactly what the comparitive numbers are) the 39% who endorse Meghan’s attendance is statistically indistinguishable from the 41% who endorse Harry’s.

    • Emily_C says:

      Yep. So many people these days seem entirely unable to understand the simplest things about percentages, let alone rounding errors.

  39. The Recluse says:

    If they were truly vindictive, they would take Archie to Disneyland either that Friday or Saturday and BLOW THE CORONATION OFF THE FRONT PAGES.

  40. Emily_C says:

    Maybe they’re afraid for Meghan’s safety? Whatever, my husband and I talked about this and we really hope they don’t go, because we’ll be worried for them the whole time they’re there. They’ll make the best decision for themselves, but Archie’s birthday is more important and not at all dangerous.

  41. jgerber says:

    Bloomberg is an ass. While he was mayor of New York City, he absolutely refused to give New York City teachers a raise. We were stymied for YEARS. I think he offered something abysmal, like .02 percent of a raise (I’d have to look back, but it was a really insufferable, insulting offer). He also changed the rules so he could be mayor of New York City for 3 terms. We did not get a contract until after he was gone.
