Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are among the most boring things in life, study finds

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle are in the second most boring thing in life – only coming after having no wi-fi.

Politics, watching golf and people taking phots of their food are also up there with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Coronavirus press conferences and video adverts you cannot skip also made the top five – along with waiting for websites to load and politics.

Company meetings, watching cricket, junk mail and Coldplay are also considered dull.

As are waiting for your partner to get ready, having to put the bins out, and rice cakes.

It also emerged that four in 10 of those polled said their life is currently ‘quite boring’ or “very boring” – but 72 per cent intend to make a concerted effort to have ‘more fun’ this year.

The study found the typical adult spends 85 minutes a day feeling bored – the equivalent of 22 days each year.

And the average adult finds themselves with absolutely nothing to do twice a day.

While more than a third, 36 per cent, admitted it’s been so long since they had fun that they can “hardly remember” what having fun is.

The research also identified the biggest 'boredom busters' – holidays, reading, hobbies, meeting friends, and exercise.

On the subject of getaways in particular, the study carried out by OnePoll also determined what consumers want from a break.

These include a wide selection of bars and restaurants, lots of history, great architecture, and a selection of museums.

And the top activities to do while away include going on boat trips, laying on the beach, visiting theme parks, and going to waterparks.

The research, commissioned by Jet2holidays, found half of adults intend to liven things up by going on vacation – and they're planning an average of two getaways.

A spokesperson for the holiday provider said: "There are plenty of aspects of our lives which we find mind-numbing and boring and the last two years have certainly not helped.

“But we hope the findings will inspire people to go out and up their fun quotas – there is a whole world of fun out there just waiting to be explored.

“Staring at the same walls day after day soon becomes tiresome and over the last couple of years, we have likely done this more than ever.

“2022 is definitely the year we get back to normal and enjoy doing all those things we have missed most, such as going on holiday.

“A holiday is the perfect boredom breaker as it allows us to not only escape from the fatigue of everyday life, but also means we can explore different parts of the world in search of an adventure and what could be more thrilling than that.”
