President Donald Trump slammed Meghan Markle during a press conference on Wednesday after hearing that she encouraged Americans to vote for Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden. The president said that he wishes her husband “a lot of luck … because he’s gonna need it.”
“Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chimed in on the U.S. election and essentially encouraged people to vote for Joe Biden,” a reporter said to Trump. “I want to get your reaction to that.”
Trump responded, “I’m not a fan of hers and I would say this, and she probably has heard that, but I wish a lot of luck to Harry … because he’s going to need it.”
Markle, who despises the president, said in the video that Trump was asked about: “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.”
“As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity,” Harry said in the video. “When the bad outweighs the good, for many, whether we realize it or not, it erodes our ability to have compassion and our ability to put ourself in someone else’s shoes. Because when one person buys into negativity online, the effects are felt exponentially. It’s time to not only reflect, but act.”
Daily Mail columnist Piers Morgan responded to the video by Markle and Harry by calling for them to be stripped of their royal titles because royals, according to Morgan, are not supposed to wade publicly into politics.
Although they never mentioned Biden’s name, it is crystal clear whose side they’re on and it’s not the guy sitting in the White House tweeting hateful disingenuous rhetoric 24/7.
By expressing themselves in such a brazenly partisan manner, they’ve crossed a massive line which should now have serious consequences for the couple who specialize in wanting their royal cake and the freedom to eat it.
The Royals don’t do politics.
Not publicly, anyway.
It’s one of the cast-iron rules of being a member of the Royal Family – that you don’t spout off your own political opinions for public consumption because it would damage the integrity of the Monarchy.
On the Queen’s official website, it states: ‘As Head of State, The Queen has to remain strictly neutral with respect to political matters.’
This is because Her Majesty has to deal with governments of all political persuasion, both at home and abroad, and must be seen to be scrupulously impartial to them all.
