Royals Allowed to Vote?

Meghan Markle, who is applying for British citizenship, is still technically a U.S. citizen, so many are wondering if she voted by absentee ballot. Apparently, the answer is, “It’s complicated.” According to Kensington Palace’s official website, the Queen is “strictly neutral with respect to political matters” and therefore is “unable to vote or stand for election.” By default, the rest of the royal family typically doesn’t vote in order to maintain the neutral stance. The Palace had no comment when asked if the Duchess would be voting.
