I love the Royal Family, but I have to admit my feelings on them keep changing because of Meghan and Harry. Like I know that we don’t know the whole story and never will, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be a little angry about it.
Traditionally, the Royals aren’t allowed to be vocal about anything political. They are supposed to keep their opinions to themselves. But Meghan, well she’s going to exercise her right to vote this fall.
“I know what it’s like to have a voice, and also what it’s like to feel voiceless,” Meghan shared with Marie Claire. “I also know that so many men and women have put their lives on the line for us to be heard. And that opportunity, that fundamental right, is in our ability to exercise our right to vote and to make all of our voices heard.”
She continued, “One of my favorite quotes, and one that my husband and I have referred to often, is from Kate Sheppard, a leader in the suffragist movement in New Zealand, who said, ‘Do not think your single vote does not matter much. The rain that refreshes the parched ground is made up of single drops.’ That is why I vote.”
So how is she making history? She will be the first member of the family to vote publicly in an election.
We’re excited that she’s exercising her right to vote and inspiring others along the way.
We hope you exercise your right to vote this fall!
