Prince Harry’s ‘impulsive’ attitude will cost the Duke a reprimand from the Queen after the Republican congressman wrote to the British Ambassador to the United States to stop the Duke of Sussex’s ‘meddling’ and of his wife Meghan Markle in the US presidential election. The royal couple urged US citizens to vote in the upcoming US election on November 3, a move that has been described as a “serious violation” of diplomatic agreements between the United States and the British royal family.

Commenting on the incident, royal author Penny Junor told Sky News that Prince Harry’s decision to speak with his wife Meghan was not surprising.She said: “Harry has always been impulsive and instinctive.

“And he just did things without really thinking about it.

“William has always been incredibly measured, incredibly independent.

“He thinks about everything, maybe too much.

“But the bottom line is he’s a lot more careful and that’s really what you need right now as a member of the royal family. ”

The letter was sent by Congressman Jason Smith, who represents the 8th Congressional District of Missouri in the House of Representatives.

He argued that since Harry and Meghan are still members of the British Royal Family, their political comments amounted to “an inappropriate act of domestic interference” on the part of the United Kingdom.

Mr Smith wrote: ‘By allowing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to retain their titles and have these political comments continue, the UK government is in effect tolerating interference in the 2020 US presidential election. the part of officials at the highest level of the British establishment. ”

In September, Harry urged Americans to “reject hate speech, disinformation and negativity online” in the next election.

Meghan meanwhile waved the November poll “the most important election of our lives” and urged Americans to register to vote.

In the letter to Dame Karen Pierce, British Ambassador, Mr. Smith said: “I am writing to express my concern to Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their continued interference in the US presidential election.

“As you know, the British royal family has long followed a policy of strict neutrality in political matters.

“I am therefore concerned about the recent comments of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex regarding the presidential election in the United States, especially given the international conversations surrounding foreign interference in our election and the Duke’s status as guest from the United States.

“These actions represent a serious violation of the policy of political neutrality of the British Royal Family and an inappropriate act of internal interference by one of our closest allies.

Mr Smith described Meghan’s political views as “thinly disguised and widely disseminated”.

He singled out Harry’s criticism of ‘hate speech’ and Meghan’s comment that the vote is ‘the most important election of our lives’ as examples of interference.

The Duke and Duchess resigned as royals earlier this year, but they remain royals.

They are still allowed to use the “HRH” prefix although both have agreed not to.
