Since Harry and Markle stepped down from their roles as senior royals, the couple has been making news for their statements on Black Lives Matter and voter suppression. Most recently, the duo joined Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai from their $14 million Santa Barbara home for a video that was shared on the Oxford graduate's social media accounts in celebration of International Day of the Girl. During the event, Harry and Meghan discussed the importance of a girl's right to a fair education and addressed how the Covid-19 pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on young women's access to education.
Meanwhile, Meghan also revealed they had been having "a lot of good family time" during the pandemic, with Harry saying: "We were both there for Archie's first steps, his first run, his first fall, everything."
Previously, Harry urged American voters to "reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity" while Meghan had called the presidential race the "most important election of our lifetime" as the pair urged Americans to use their right and definitely vote. Even though Harry and Meghan did not endorse a candidate, their comments earned them a lot of backlash. Many social media users took to commenting across various platforms and said how this was none of their business and it's best they stay clear of the same.
Last month, during a press conference President Donald Trump said that he is "not a fan" of Meghan Markle and wished her husband, Prince Harry, "a lot of luck." One reported ask Trump, "Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chimed in on the U.S. election and essentially encouraged people to vote for Joe Biden. I wanted to get your reaction to that," to which he responded, "I'm not a fan of hers, and I would say this – and she probably has heard that – but, I wish a lot of luck to Harry, because he's going to need it."
