The Duchess was born in America and has the right to vote.

Meghan Markle made history by becoming the first member of the British royal family to vote in an American election. Unlike her husband, Prince Harry, the 39-year-old Duchess of Sussex was born in America and can vote for the candidate she likes. Moreover, her son Archie will also be able to vote when he grows up, as he has dual citizenship – American and British.

In the history of the royal court of Great Britain there was already one American woman – the Duchess of Windsor Wallis Simpson, but she ignored the elections at home.

By the way, Megan not only voted herself, but also urged fans to do so. She personally phoned voters and explained to them the rules for filling out ballots and protocols. And together with her husband, the Duchess recorded a campaign video motivating viewers to take part in the elections.

Such proactive actions by Meghan caused a conflict at Buckingham Palace, because, despite the official exit of Harry and his wife from the royal family, they are still obliged to maintain strict political neutrality.

Curiously, although the prince and duchess did not pay attention to a particular candidate, many on the web believed that they were supporters of Joe Biden. In response to these rumors, the current US President Donald Trump admitted that he always disliked Markle.
