Meghan Markle and Prince Andrew have been named as the UK's least favourite royals, a new poll has stated as reported by Independent. As per the poll, the least favourite royal is Prince Andrew who received 86 per cent of negative votes from the people of UK. In January this year, Prince Andrew was accused of being involved in an "underage orgy" on Jeffrey Epstein's island. As per The Times, a report about Prince Andrew was brought to London police, alleging that he had sexually abused a 17-year-old girl. These accusations reappeared in recently released court records that related to the sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein. When the accusations first surfaced earlier, Prince Andrew was urged to resign from active royal activities and had his military honours taken away from him.

In a video message, she said, “It has been an incredibly tough couple of months for our entire family, but I’ve had a fantastic medical team who have taken great care of me, for which I am so grateful. In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London and at the time, it was thought that my condition was non-cancerous. The surgery was successful. However, tests after the operation found cancer had been present. My medical team therefore advised that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of that treatment."
