One Republican from the Show Me State has become fed up with some royal influence directed at the U.S. presidential election in its final weeks.
“Prince Harry and Megan Markle are using foreign titles to campaign against President Trump and interfere with our election. Today, I asked the British Government to put a stop to it,” tweeted Rep. Jason Smith of Missouri, who has expressed his concern in a formal letter sent to the Dame Karen Pierce, British ambassador to the U.S., on Oct 9.
Mr. Smith was particularly concerned about a TV spot featuring the royal pair urging Americans to register to vote and “reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity.”
The lawmaker says that the political opinions of the Duchess of Sussex are “thinly disguised” and that he felt the actions “represent a serious breach of the British Royal Family’s policy of political neutrality and an inappropriate act of domestic interference by one of our closest allies.”
