In a letter to the British Ambassador and British Embassy, Republican lawmaker Jason Smith of Missouri called for Price Harry and Meghan Markle to be stripped of their foreign titles.
Smith wrote “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. ”
In the letter, Smith writes “The Duchess of Sussex, whose political opinions are thinly disguised and widely reported, went so far as to label the 2020 election the, “most important election of our lifetime.” These actions represent a serious breach of domestic interference by one of our closest allies.” He also argues “by allowing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to retain their titles, and these political comments to continue, the British Government is effectively condoning interference in the 2020 United States Presidential Election from officials at the highest level of British establishment.”
