- Meghan Markle is reportedly voting in the presidential election.
- Newsweek confirms the Duchess will become the first royal to take part in a national election.
- While royals typically remain politically neutral and do not vote, Meghan is no longer a working member of the royal family (nor is she living in England).
In a history making move, Meghan Markle will become the first royal ever to take part in a national election, Newsweek reports. Meghan’s representatives haven’t confirmed how/when she’s voting, but a source tells the outlet that “the duchess is voting” and that “I’m not going to get into methods or timing, but can confirm that the duchess is voting in this election.”
Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry recently spoke about the importance of voting during ABC’s TIME 100 special, with Harry explaining that he’s “not going to be able to vote here in the U.S.” and has not “been able to vote in the U.K. my entire life” due to members of the royal family staying politically neutral.

Meanwhile, Meghan said at the time “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. When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard. Your voice is a reminder that you matter. Because you do. And you deserve to be heard.”
On that note, get out there and vote!!!!!!
