But only 13 to 18 percent of people who are 65 and older think of the pair in a positive light.

In July, another poll revealed that Prince Harry, 36, was less popular than Prince Andrew among baby boomers.

According to the poll, the red-headed prince doesn't seem to appeal to people who are born between 1946 and 1964.

Harry has made headlines for bashing his family ever since he left the royal family in 2020.

"There’s a lot to work through there. I feel really let down because he’s been through something similar, he knows what pain feels like, and Archie is his grandson, but at the same time, I of course, will always love him, but there’s a lot of hurt that happened and I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship," he told Oprah Winfrey about his father. "But they only know what they know. I have tried to educate them from the process I have been educated."

Meanwhile, Prince Andrew has been laying low ever since Virginia Roberts sued him for alleging raping her when she was 17 years old.
