Earlier this year, the couple dropped their bombshell news and announced that they are stepping down as senior members of the Firm.
As a result, the most sought after couple were stripped of their HRH titles as they vowed to be “financially dependent” and carve a new life outside the monarchy.
However, they remained as the Earl and Countess of Dumbarton and the Baron and Baroness Kilkeel, and formally known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
In addition, they also kept their patronages and managed to have some level of security, considering that they are both public figures.
63 Percent of Brits Wants Prince Harry, Meghan Markle to Avoid Giving Political Opinions
As the couple transitioned in their post royal life and currently living in their posh $14.65 million private estate in Montecito, Santa Barbara–a total of 63 percent of Brits pointed out that the former “Suits” star–despite being born and raised in the U.S., should distant herself from giving political opinions.
This came after the ex-royals urged Americans to exercise their right to vote as they hinted their support to former vice president and Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden.
In their first tv appearance for Time magazine’s 100 world’s most influential people, they encourage people to make a change and vote in the upcoming U.S. presidential election.
“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,” Meghan Markle mentioned.
On the other hand, Prince Harry advised the public to “reject hate speech, misinformation, and online negativity.”
Meghan Markle for President
Interestingly, only 35 percent agreed that Duchess Meghan deserves a seat in the White House.
Rumors sparked that the former actress is running for the presidential race in 2024.
According to Vanity Fair, a source revealed that the runaway duchess “was so keen not to give up her American citizenship” is because of her ambition to go into politics.
“I think if Meghan and Harry ever gave up their titles, she would seriously consider running for president,” the source added.
