Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been slammed across social media for breaking royal protocol and speaking out about the US election. Harry urged 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. 

While speaking in a Time 100 video message, Harry, who isn't a US citizen, shared that he was not eligible to vote during the November 3 election and added that he had never voted in the UK either where the royals are expected to remain politically neutral. As per Time, Harry said, "As we approach this November, it's vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity. When the bad outweighs the good, for many, whether we realize it or not, it erodes our ability to have compassion and our ability to put ourself in someone else's shoes. Because when one person buys into negativity online, the effects are felt exponentially. It's time to not only reflect, but act."

Meghan said, "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." 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. 

One such user had commented and written, "Them two really don’t have a clue do they. They cannot see that most people find them irrelevant and don’t want to hear what they have to say." Another user who commented on Twitter, "Where does this British prince get off talking about the American elections? He and his D-list actress wife need to get over themselves!" Another outraged user wrote, "Because these Hypocrites think that they're going to be part of the new global reset that is set to take place. They think that they're going to be the new AI gods.. lol." Yet another social media user, who echoed the same sentiments, shared, "We know who is the impetus behind this. And Harry, why do you not take a stand against outright lies and anarchy, not to mention treason. You were better off, sir, when you were a respected member of the royal family." A user wrote, "Holy crap. It’s not bad enough we have our domestic idiots to deal with, now we have to listen to imported idiots too? These two deserve each other."
