Donald Trump Is 'Not A Fan' Of Meghan Markle After She Encouraged Americans To Vote

Meghan Markle has drawn criticism from the Donald Trump for encouraging Americans to vote in the 2020 election.

In a video for Time 100, the Duchess of Sussex appeared in a that aimed to get people to care about the November date.

Meghan said: "We're six weeks out from the election. 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."

Some have taken that as the Duchess wanting people to vote for Trump's rival.

Daily Mail reporter Nikki Schwab asked President Trump what his reaction was to Meghan chiming 'in on the US election and essentially encouraged people to vote for Joe Biden'.

The President replied with: "I'm not a fan of hers...she probably has heard that."

Prince Harry's comments have also drawn criticism from commentators back on UK soil.

While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped away from their royal duties, their divorce statement requires them to 'continue to uphold the values of Her Majesty'.

While it's not illegal for a British royal to vote in the UK election, it's considered unconstitutional.
