- Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is being called out for encouraging American citizens to vote
- Politicians and celebrities are calling for her royal title to be stripped as this reflects negatively on the monarchy
- This comes after she appeared as a guest on a web panel about voting
The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has been called out after promoting voting in the USA. The British public, politicians and celebs have voiced their opinion on the duchess' right to promote voting in a foreign country.
Although there is no law in place for royals in terms of voicing their opinions about elections, it is heavily frowned upon. This is why the duchess caused a stir with a recent web panel for When We All Vote. When We All Vote is a non-profit organisation which provides information on voting.
During the panel discussion, Markle was quoted saying:
"If you're not going other there and voting, then you're complicit."
British broadcaster, Piers Morgan, had some strong opinions regarding Meghan:
So did British politician David Kurten:
Here's what some fans of Meghan's had to say:
"For the poeple at the back: yes, Meghan Markle is American, she'll vote and use her voice in this specific election that will change the course in American history. Y'all irrelevants can stay pressed and brainwashed by the likes of rats Piers Morgan and Dan Wooton."
Staying with royal family news, Briefly.co.za previously reported on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle secretly buying their first home. The home is located in Santa Barbara and they plan to settle and raise their boy, Archie, there.
Briefly.co.za learned that after quitting the British royal family, the couple moved to Los Angeles and they had been staying at Tyler Perry's Beverly Hills estate. Harry, 35, and Meghan, 39, have opted for a quiet community to settle down in, according to IOL.
So far, details about the couple's home, how much it cost et cetera, have been kept closely-guarded secrets, a spokesperson for the couple told the New York Post's Page Six Column.
