Meanwhile, in a speech last month, Harry and Meghan discussed the upcoming election.

This election I am not able to vote in the US.

Prince Harry said: “This election I am not able to vote in the US.

“But many of you may not know that I haven’t been able to vote in the UK my entire life.

“As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity.”
