Let's face it, we all love to see what our favourite royals are up to.

From Prince George's cheeky escapades to Duchess Kate's latest recycled look, there's always something we revel in seeing.

But it looks like there's one royal that we love to follow more than any other, and his cheeky grin and affectionate nature are certainly contributing factors.

A new poll has found that none other than Prince Harry has taken the title of the most popular royal with the British public.

A solid 77 per cent of Britain have a positive opinion of Harry, while 74 per cent held the same opinion of the Queen, ringing her in second place. Meanwhile Prince William came in third at 73 per cent.

The YouGov survey described Harry as admirable, likeable, humorous, fun-loving and genuine, according to his fans.

Prince Harry has caught the hearts of people all over the world!

Meanwhile, those who didn't quite make the top five included Meghan who came in sixth place, Prince Charles who came in seventh and Camilla who rounded out the tenth spot.

While Duchess Catherine came in before Meghan at fourth place, the new member to the royal fold still garnered a positive opinion of over half of Britain (55 per cent)

Markle has quickly risen in popularity following her wedding to Prince Harry in May. The pair's affectionate nature and their recent pregnancy announcement has certainly delighted royal fans, which would have improved Meghan's case greatly.

The pair have just rounded out a tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga where they shared a number of sweet moments with royal fans Down Under.

One such moment happened while the expecting parents visited the Sydney Opera House, which is where Harry ran into a war widow named Daphne, whom he had come across several times before during his public walkabouts.

The pair shared a warm embrace before Harry quickly summoned over his new wife to meet his old friend.

Meanwhile, the survey showed less than half of Britain (48 per cent) had a positive view of Prince Charles, who will ring in his 70th birthday this week.

This might come as a surprise given the royal's strong dedication to environmental causes and hard work ethic. However his wife Camilla, garnered a negative opinion of 36 per cent of the country according to the survey - guess you can't please them all!

The birthday boy will be celebrating in style on Wednesday as he rings in the milestone. The Queen will host a reception and dinner in the State Rooms of Buckingham Palace where close family members and several other European royal dignitaries will attend, including Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik.
