Royal news: the one thing Prince Harry isn't supporting Meghan Markle on

> The Duke of Sussex will not publicly support his wife the Duchess of Sussex as she encourages US voters to have their say in the upcoming election, according to a new report

Prince Harry is not expected to publicly support his wife Meghan as she campaigns to encourage people to vote in the upcoming US election, according to the Telegraph.

The report states that the Duke, who is not eligible to vote in the November election, will not join Meghan’s mission out of respect for his family’s position on voting and involvement in political affairs.

 

As head of state, Her Majesty is required to “remain strictly neutral”, the royal family’s official website reads. It adds: “By convention, The Queen does not vote or stand for election, however Her Majesty does have important ceremonial and formal roles in relation to the government of the UK.”

While Harry will not become involved in US political life, Meghan has been using her voice to encourage voter participation.

The former actress was among the special guests at the United State of Women and When We All Vote online event last week, in which she said: “This week we are recognising the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which of course gave women the right to vote, but not all women. And specifically not women of colour.

“As we look at things today, though it has taken decades longer for women to get the right to vote, even today we are watching so many women in different communities who are marginalised. Still struggling to see that right come to fruition. And that is simply not OK.”

Meghan added: “It’s all the more reason for each of you to be out there supporting each other to understand this fight is worth fighting, and we all have to be out there mobilising to have our voices heard.

“Because at this juncture, if we aren’t part of the solution, we are part of the problem. If you aren’t going out there and voting, then you’re complicit. If you are complacent, you’re complicit.”
