Poor Harry and Meghan…
Looks like their transition from British to American politics isn’t working out too hot for them.
Not only is their thinly veiled anti-Trump message falling on deaf ears, but according to GOP Rep. Jason Smith, it’s also a breach of neutrality the royal family has held on U.S. elections for decades.
From The Hill
Rep. Jason Smith (R-Mo.) raised concerns Friday that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are using their official titles to interfere in the U.S. election in November.
In a letter sent to British Ambassador to the U.S. Karen Pierce, Smith — a member of Republican House leadership — argued that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s comments on the upcoming elections are inappropriate, noting the royal family traditionally does not weigh in on political matters.
Since moving to the United States, the couple has taken an active role in encouraging voters to get involved, releasing a video urging individuals to “reject hate speech” and “misinformation” in September and calling it the “most important election of our lifetime.”
“As you know, the British Royal Family has long observed a policy of strict neutrality in regard to political matters. I am therefore concerned by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s recent comments regarding the United States Presidential Election, especially given international conversations surrounding foreign interference in our elections and the Duke’s status as a guest of the United States,” Smith wrote.

Prince Harry and Megan Markle are using foreign titles to campaign against President Trump and interfere with our election. Today, I asked the British Government to put a stop to it.

I mean, Smith does make a valid point.
While Harry and Meghan haven’t endorsed a particular candidate, it’s painfully obvious that it wouldn’t be Trump.
And there lies the issue…
