Royal expert Richard Mineards, a journalist for The Montecito Journal, told Access Hollywood: “I particularly would caution Prince Harry as Queen Elizabeth’s grandson because royal members do not talk about political activities or politicians publicly.

“Particularly criticising them, and this has not gone down well in England.”

What did Meghan and Harry say?

Speaking in their video message, 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.

That is really a double whammy for both Harry and Meghan.

“When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard. Your voice is a reminder that you matter.”

Harry followed up with: “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.”

He said: “Buckingham Palace were asked for a comment about how they perceive the situation and they said they do not comment on non-working royal members.”

Speaking further, he said it’s a “double whammy” for both Harry and Meghan, adding: “To be called non-working royals means they have been sidelined.”

Elsewhere, Harry reportedly noticed a snub in the Queen’s last Christmas speech. Harry spotted that he and his wife didn’t feature in any of the family pictures.

According to Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand in the book Finding Freedom, Harry interpreted this as a direct snub.

Further, the authors wrote that Harry felt the institution has “sidelined” him and Meghan.
