Meghan Markle and Prince Harry named two of most respected royals in public poll

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been named as one of the most respected members of the Royal Family in a public vote.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex trailed only the Queen in a poll designed to discover which royals people have the most respect for.

The monarch was named the most respected member of the family with 26% of the vote, conducted by youth health charity stem4.

Then despite quitting as working royals last year in a bid to be "financially independent", Meghan and Harry were named the joint second most respected royal with 21%.

Further down the list were Prince William and Kate Middleton, with 11% of the vote each.

The vote was carried out among 1,032 people between the ages of 13 and 25.

The news comes less than two weeks after Harry and Meghan welcomed their new daughter into the world.

Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born in a hospital in a hospital in Santa Barbara, California, on June 4.

Relations between Harry and Meghan and the rest of the family have been tense in recent months after the pair gave a number of interviews criticising the Royals.

But is hoped the birth of Lilibet will help to build some bridges with Kate saying she "can't wait" to meet the tiny tot.

Lilibet was named as a tribute to her great-grandmother the Queen, with Lilibet being her having nickname given to her by late husband Prince Philip.

Her name also honours her grandmother, Princess Diana.

Harry and Meghan announced the birth on their Archewell website.

The couple said: "On June 4th, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili.

"She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe.

"Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family."
