Many of you have heard the phrase more than once that the representatives of the royal family of a country should always remain neutral when it comes to political issues.
“As head of state, the Queen must remain strictly neutral on political matters.
The monarch does not vote, does not run for this or that office, but Her Majesty plays an important ceremonial and formal role in relation to the British government,” the experts explain.
However, there are times when it is difficult to remain silent. So among the representatives of the British crown, there were those who deliberately expressed their point of view.
For example, before giving up the status of the main members of the royal family, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle called on Americans to take an active part in voting in the US presidential election in 2020.
The Sussexes argued that people need to “reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity.
“Such words of the dukes were perceived as real support for the Joe Biden campaign, which is why the chief royal expert, Piers Morgan, called for depriving a couple of royal titles.
However, Prince Harry’s brother, Prince William , who bears the status of the future king of Great Britain, also intervened in US politics, although he was more restrained in expressing his views.
When news of the capture of the US capitol became known to the world on January 6, William decided to write a letter to a girl whose lover, an officer, died in a mutiny.
On this day, supporters of the presidential campaign of Donald Trump (at that time, the current president of the United States) broke into the Capitol building and then into the Senate Hall in Washington.
The uprising, which began with an ordinary rally, grew into an armed clash. The riots, according to mainstream media, were provoked by comments made by Trump.
