Vastavam web: Britain’s Prince Harry and his American wife Meghan have called on Americans to register to vote in the upcoming U.S. presidential election, entering into political territory where British royals traditionally do not venture. In a video for 2020 Time 100, the U.S. magazine’s list of the world’s most influential people, the couple said people who were able to cast their vote, should do so.
Harry and Meghan now live in California, having stepped down from their senior royal roles in March. “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.” Last year, Trump, on being told of Meghan’s criticism, said: “I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty.”
Under Britain’s unwritten constitution, the royal family are expected to remain politically neutral and do not vote in elections. The queen, 94, has rarely strayed into current affairs issues during her 68-year reign. While Harry did not endorse Trump’s opponent, Democrat challenger Joe Biden, his comments led to criticism he was interfering in politics.
