Meghan Markle labels November choose the most important of our lives


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have spoken of the upcoming US elections in a stark break with British tradition that forbids royal participation in politics as they continue to define their new public roles after their resignation as high-ranking kings.

“Every four years we are told the same thing that this is the most important choice of our life. But that's it, ”said Markle, 39, in the video clip that aired as part of Time 100, the annual list of the world's 100 most influential people.

Markle continued, “When we vote, our values ​​are put into action and our voices are heard. Your voice reminds you that you are important because you do and deserve to be heard. & # 39;

For his part, Harry said, "As we approach this November, it is important that we avoid hate speech, misinformation and online negativity."

Harry urged Americans to be careful what type of content they consume online.

“When bad outweighs good, for many, whether we realize it or not, it undermines our ability to have compassion and to place ourselves in the shoes of another. Because when a person is shopping online in negativity, the effects are felt exponentially. It's time not just to think, but to act, ”he said.

Harry also referred to the fact that since he is not a US citizen he will not be able to vote in November, noting that as a member of the UK royal family, he was never able to vote.

While British law does not specifically prohibit members of the royal family from voting, the expectation that royals remain apolitical is considered sacrosanct and, in practice, they never participate in elections, either by elections or otherwise.

But since Markle and Harry announced they were stepping down as senior royals in January and moving to North America, they have tacitly expanded their involvement in politics as they go their own way.

Markle has made her position on the 2020 elections clear in several appearances over the past few weeks and expressed her enthusiasm for the democratic ticket

This week, feminist activist Gloria Steinem announced that Markle had joined her in calling out Americans and pushing them to vote.

Steinem told Access Hollywood, “She came home to vote. The first thing we did and why she came to see me was that we were seated at the dining table where I am and we gave the voters cold calls. & # 39;

"Said" Hello, I'm Meg "and" Hello, I'm Gloria "and" Will you choose? "That was your initiative."

Before Markle married Prince Harry in 2018, he was no stranger to politics, mocking then-presidential candidate Donald Trump during an appearance on the 2016 Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore.

She said Trump was "misogynist and divisive" and indicated her support for Hillary Clinton.

Markle has attended several interviews and summits over the past few weeks. She was reportedly "frustrated" with her inability to engage in politics while serving as a Senior Royal.

Last month she had a "backyard chat" with Gloria, making it incredibly clear who she wants to vote for next November and expressing excitement at seeing a woman of color on the Democratic ticket – Joe Biden's runner-up, Kamala Harris – and explaining that the nomination was particularly significant to her because it's biracial.

"I'm so excited to see this kind of display," she said. “You know, for me, when I'm biracial, grew up, whether it was a doll or a person in office, you have to see someone who looks like you in some form.

“As many of us believe, you can only be what you can see. And if it isn't, how can you aspire to something greater than what you see in your own world? I think maybe now we're starting to break through in other ways. & # 39;

In the meantime, she has also recorded voter appeals boldly calling on women in the US to vote in the 2020 presidential election. Speaking at an online voter summit about the need for "change", she told attendees, "If we are not part of the solution, we are part of the problem."

Meghan made her stance on the 2020 presidential race clear when she addressed the audience at the When All Women Vote Couch Party – an online event organized by the nonprofit When We All Vote, founded by "her friend" Michelle Obama.

Meghan appeared as the inaugural speaker at the summit, expressing her "enthusiasm" for attending before telling the organization's stakeholders, "We need (your work) now more than ever."

“I'm really excited that you asked me to be a part of it,” began the mother of one, adding, “I think this is an extraordinary time (and I am) happy to be here for my friend Michelle his Obama's When We All Vote and the start of the When All Women Vote Couch Party. & # 39;
