King Charles III is starting to slowly but surely win over America, and the reason has to do with his "handling" of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

"Americans really understand the role of a constitutional monarchy. It appears that Charles has come off very well in all of this," journalist Lee Cohen told an outlet when describing the King's perception in the States.

King Charles III has 'turned away' from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

"He stepped into impossible shoes to follow the beloved Queen Elizabeth, his mother, who was globally admired. And everyone knows that's not an easy role to fill," Cohen added. "He's handled Harry and Meghan exquisitely well because he's handled them with deftness and with great skill and dignity."

He continued: "Which of course, is in complete opposition to what they've been serving up to the royal family. So I believe that his dignified way of handling the Harry and Meghan turbulence has really paid off for him and bolsters his image here in the United States as well as in Britain."

Others feel that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are likely "jealous" of how previous banished royals and ex-royals are taking the limelight again.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly 'angry' at how they are treated compared to scandal-laden Prince Andrew.

"The thing that really riles Meghan is that Fergie pops up on things like the ITV daytime show This Morning, [and] Loose Women, and billing herself as the Duchess of York, selling books and possibly doing adverts all under the royal family," popular YouTube broadcaster Neil Sean told an outlet.

"Meghan and Harry seemingly don’t understand why it’s a different rule for her," he added, before stating how Meghan "tried to set up a meeting with him [the King], she sent him a letter and wanted a one-to-one to explain exactly the problems she’s encountered ever since becoming a member of the British monarchy."

Sean's report may lie in the fact that both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex still actively choose to use their royal styles and titles, while refusing to work for the Crown and instead monetizing their own individual projects. Sarah Ferguson won the right to legally use "Duchess of York" (and totally lost her HRH) after her first name as part of her 1996 divorce settlement from Prince Andrew.

This news also follows recent reports that reflect where the Montecito twosome's professional lives could go as the year unfolds, and the outlook does not seem promising.

As for King Charles III, numerous royal historians agree that he will likely never reach the heights of reverence that Elizabeth II achieved. One palace insider claims that this is not His Majesty's fault, as he will likely only reign for 20-something years due to his advanced age when acceding to the throne.

But the monarch's newfound popularity in America is reportedly a "good sign" that his reign, however short it may be, is currently stable.
