The Palace Responded to Prince Harry's Voting PSA
They made it clear he is not a "working member" of the family.
The palace made a rare, albeit brief, statement about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's PSA to get out the vote. For Time, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a video urging fans and viewers to vote in this important election. “As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation, and online negativity,″ Harry said in the video.
Usually, royal family members are not allowed to take part in anything political, however, since Meghan and Harry are no longer working members, they have gotten more involved. When asked about how the royal family felt about this the palace released a statement saying, ″We would not comment. The Duke is not a working member of the Royal Family, and any comments he makes are made in a personal capacity."
Following the couple's video, Donald Trump was asked how he felt about them and he made a remark about how he doesn't like Markle. ″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, cause he’s gonna need it," he said.
