During the Royally Obsessed podcast Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito discussed Piers Morgan’s comments on Meghan Markle’s voting plea after the outspoken Good Morning Britain host called for the Duchess to be stripped of her title because of her political intervention. Ms Fiorito labelled Mr Morgan’s comments ridiculous and added that Queen Elizabeth II has previously encouraged people to vote.
Ms Bowie said regarding Meghan Markle: “She received a lot of backlash from media commentators for comments on voting.
“Piers Morgan suggested that the Sussexes should be stripped of their titles and Dan Wootton from The Sun called it completely inappropriate and an embarrassment.
“What is going on?”
Ms Fiorito replied: “I think that is so ridiculous.
“The Queen has previously encouraged people to vote.
“This is not a new thing and it is not partisan, Meghan is just saying vote, which is really important that everybody votes.”
Ms Bowie added: “She never endorsed any candidate, while you can make inferences about which candidate she is voting for.
“Obviously she did not come out and openly say that, she was politically neutral.”
Meghan Markle said regarding voting during an online appearance for When All Women Vote: “We vote to honour those who came before us and to protect those that come after us, that’s what community is all about and that’s specifically what this election is all about.
“You’re just as mobilised and energised to see the change we all need and deserve. This fight is worth fighting and we all need to be out there mobilising to have our voices heard.”
She continued: “If you aren’t part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. If you are complacent, you are complicit.
“We can make a difference in this election and we will make a difference in this election.”

Piers Morgan tweeted in response: “The Queen must strip the Sussexes of their titles. They can’t remain as royals & spout off about foreign elections in such a brazenly partisan way.”
He added: “Last time I checked she’s still calling herself the Duchess of Sussex.”
Mr Morgan said in a separate tweet: “She can do what she likes, she just can’t make politically partisan statements while remaining Duchess of Sussex.
“The royals are not allowed to do that. If Meghan & Harry truly want ‘freedom’ from royal duty & rules, they should stop trading off their royal titles.”
