In a video for Time magazine’s 100 most influential people, both Harry and Meghan urged US citizens to vote.

However, this is strictly against royal protocol. British royals are supposed to remain neutral when it comes to both national and international politics.

The source continued: “There are all sorts of issues to speak about — not only his political statements but also his visa situation in the US.

What did Meghan and Harry say on their podcast interview?

“Even though he would have to isolate for two weeks, the estate is large enough for talks in a socially distanced way.”

Of course, Harry and Meghan now live in a mansion in Montecito, California.

The pair plopped down at least £11 million for the sprawling property, which boasts 16 bathrooms.

In fact, they just held their first joint podcast interview at their new home.

Here they spoke to several Californian high school students about mental health.

Harry said he meditated, and Meghan said she journals to combat anxiety.

She also said she was the most trolled person of last year.

Speaking to the teens, Meghan said: “I’m told that in 2019 I was the most trolled person in the entire world – male or female.

“Now eight months of that, I wasn’t even visible. I was on maternity leave or with a baby. But what was able to just be manufactured and churned out. It’s almost unsurvivable.”
