Usually, whenever a new show or a movie comes out, it finds itself a target audience. Sometimes these could be people living in a similar area or similar age group. Similarly, Netflix’s recent blockbuster Harry & Meghan also enjoyed huge watch hours worldwide.

Following the demise of Queen Elizabeth II, all the members of the Royal Family especially Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been making the headlines. The royal couple has become a hot topic and fans can’t seem to get enough of them. Meanwhile, owing to the Netflix docuseries based on their lives, their popularity has skyrocketed.

As per the latest Nielsen streaming charts, the show enjoyed growth of nearly 34% in the second week of its release. And interestingly, half of the viewers were women over the age of 50. Furthermore, nearly 73% of the show’s entire audience were women.  The statistics are shocking since the royal couple is mostly popular among a younger audience.

    Meghan Markle has every sign of being a narcissist. She has led Harry, who is fairly naive, down this road and will drop him like a hot rock when she is done with him. He will then be alone, since they will have burnt every bridge back to the family. Very sad.
