Member of the House of Representatives, Republican Jason Smith sent a letter to the British Ambassador to the United States, Karen Pearce, in which he expressed his concern about the interference of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle in the presidential elections.
As he told in TwitterThe British royal family has long adhered to a policy of strict neutrality in politics. Therefore, Smith is concerned about the recent comments by Prince Harry and his wife on the US elections, especially given their status as guests of the United States.
According to the Republican, Meghan and Harry are no longer referred to as “Their Royal Highnesses”, but they have other “titles and privileges that they retain with the permission of Her Majesty the Queen.” In this connection, they are not allowed to separate personal statements from official ones.
Smith explained that the Duke and Duchess make political statements, and Britain condones their interference in the US presidential election.
The congressman talks about a video released by the British prince and his wife urging Americans to vote because “the most important election in history is expected.” At the same time, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did not call for voting for anyone in particular, although some regarded the video as support for Joe Biden.
