In a landmark and unprecedented move, Meghan Markle will become the first British royal ever to participate in a general election, Newsweek and People report.
Meghan ‘s representatives have not verified how / when she will vote, but a source informs Newsweek that “the Duchess is voting” and “I’m not going to get into methods or timing, but can confirm that the Duchess is voting in this election.”
Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry recently talked about the value of voting during ABC’s TIME 100 special, with Harry stating why he was “not going to be allowed to vote here in the U.S.” and that he was “not able to vote in the U.K. his whole life” because the royal family remains politically impartial.
Meanwhile, at the time Meghan said, “We’re just six weeks out from Election Day, and today is National Voter Registration Day. Every four years, we are told the same thing, that ‘This is the most important election of our lifetime.’ But this one is. When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard. Your voice is a reminder that you matter. Because you do. And you deserve to be heard.”
