Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's popularity with the U.K. continues to drop.

After mourning the death of Prince Philip, the nation was asked about their adoration for the royal family.

Unsurprisingly, YouGov reported that the couple's rating dipped three points from the last poll, which was taken after their shocking interview with Oprah Winfrey.

In individual ratings, the actress' score dropped a total of five points, which could stem from the fact that she skipped Philip's April 17 funeral, as she was advised by doctors not to fly overseas since she's far along in her pregnancy.

Meanwhile, the late Duke of Edinburgh's son Prince Charles saw his popularity rise for the first time since the Winfrey interview, which had caused his rating to drop eight points to 49 percent.

It seems like his estranged relationship with his own son put a damper on his reputation, as Harry confessed he was "hurt" by his father who stopped answering his phone calls.

Charles' brother Prince Edward also saw a rise in his score — however, disgraced sibling Prince Andrew stayed at the bottom of the list, where he's been ever since his alleged ties with Jeffrey Epstein came to light.

He was also accused of sleeping with a 17-year-old girl, and though he denied the claims, his rating sits at a measly 10 percent.

Duchess Kate and Prince William's score stayed steady at just about 75 percent — but it's Queen Elizabeth II who's remained the country's number one.

The matriarch had an 80 percent approval rating earlier this year, but after saying goodbye to her beloved husband, her score was boosted by five percent.

And though it was reported that Charles was now going to step up and fulfill more royal duties alongside his mother's side, 64 percent of those polled don't want the Queen to ever give up her spot on the throne.
