Meghan Markle is being criticised for appearing to side-step the tradition of royal neutrality to discuss the US election in November.
Because the Queen remains politically impartial as the UK's head of state, all royals are expected to steer clear of expressing political opinions.
But some people are interpreting Markle's speech at an online 'When All Women Vote' event as a call to remove Trump from office. She said:
You know, I think we're only 75 days away from election day and that is so very close. And yet there's so much work to be done in that amount of time. Because we all know what's at stake this year.
I know it, I think all of you certainly know it, and if you're here on this fun event with us, then 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.
Although she didn't mention Trump by name, Markle's comment that we "need and deserve" change sparked controversy.
She was criticised by some for being "brazenly partisan".
The Queen must strip the Sussexes of their titles. They can’t remain as royals & spout off about foreign elections… https://t.co/2OQZvLUSmx
