Meghan Markle is urging US citizens to vote in the upcoming midterm elections, and she recently posed for a photo that was shared on the Archewell website while wearing a “I Voted” sticker. In the photo, the 41-year-old mother of two is seen smiling while wearing a beige sweater and a blue jacket with a baseball cap.

Along with the Duchess’s photo, the Archewell website encouraged users to vote with a short message that said, “Today is Election Day in the United States! It’s time to go vote! Text ARCHEWELL to 26797 to locate your polling place and ensure you are prepared to vote.” The site also includes a few tips for those voting in person, such as confirming polling location, bringing proper identification, and reviewing what’s on the ballot. However, Markle’s new photo is causing a stir once again, with many pointing out how it appears to violate royal protocol.

Voting and royal protocol 

Meghan Markle’s public service announcement encouraging Americans to vote is one of the few times a member of the royal family has voted in an election. Meghan Markle, according to People, was the first modern royal to vote in a US presidential election in 2020. Prince Harry, a member of the British royal family, is said to have never voted in a UK election. While senior members of the royal family are technically allowed to vote, they are expected to remain politically neutral, according to The Independent.

Prince Harry discussed voting rights.

Prince Harry previously spoke about voting rights and the importance of the same in 2020 after moving to the US with Meghan Markle, saying during a broadcast special to mark the unveiling of the annual Time 100 list, “When we vote, our values are put into action, and our voices are heard.” During the time, Prince Harry and Meghan noted that it was the “most important election of our lifetime.”
