#### Abstract

Let X be an irreducible smooth projective curve, of genus at least two, over an algebraically closed field k. Let $\mathcal{M}^d_G$ denote the moduli stack of principal G-bundles over X of fixed topological type $d \in \pi_1(G)$, where G is any almost simple affine algebraic group over k. We prove that the universal bundle over $X \times \mathcal{M}^d_G$ is stable with respect to any polarization on $X \times \mathcal{M}^d_G$. A similar result is proved for the Poincar\'e adjoint bundle over $X \times M_G^{d, rs}$, where $M_G^{d, rs}$ is the coarse moduli space of regularly stable principal G-bundles over X of fixed topological type d.
