In a history making move, Meghan Markle will become the first British royal ever to take part in a national election, Newsweek and People report. Meghan’s representatives haven’t confirmed how/when she’s voting, but a source tells 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 spoke about the importance of voting during ABC’s TIME 100 special, with Harry explaining that he’s “not going to be able to vote here in the U.S.” and has not “been able to vote in the U.K. my entire life” due to members of the royal family staying politically neutral.
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.”
