On Tuesday Americans took to the polls to vote for the president who will take over the White House for the next four years. Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry moved to the US earlier this year after stepping down as senior members of the Royal Family.

Since the couple stopped conducting royal duties they have been commenting on American politics leading up to the US election.

When the Duchess of Sussex lived in America before marrying Prince Harry, she said she would leave the US if Mr Trump became president during the 2016 election.

During an interview on the Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore in May 2016, the Duchess said she would stay in Canada where she starred in the TV show Suits.

She said: “It’s really the moment I go, we film Suits in Toronto and I might just stay in Canada.

“If that is really the reality we are talking about then that is a game changer in terms of how we move in the world here.”

Twitter users have demanded the Duchess keep to her word and leave if Mr Trump wins the election this year.

One user posted a picture of other celebrities with the caption: “Meghan Markle and Prince Harry when you pack and leave after a Trump Landslide… Take these other YAHOOS with you. Thanks.”

Another user tweeted: “What happened all the actors and entertainers who were going to leave the US if Trump won in 2016?

She said it was “crazy” that Mr Trump’s controversial comments do not have an effect on his supporters.

She added: “Yes of course Trump is divisive, think about female voters alone, right?

“I think it was in 2012 the Republican Party lost the female vote by 12 points, that is a huge number and with as misogynistic as Trump is, and so vocal about it, that is a huge chunk of it.”

In September, Prince Harry told US citizen to “reject hate speech” during the 2020 US election.

But President Trump’s former campaign advisor, Corey Lewandowski, said he hoped the couple would leave the US.

After the Sussexes made comments on the US election, Mr Lewandowski told the Daily Mail: “They made Britain great again by leaving, I hope they do the same for us.”

During a broadcast as part of the Time 100, Prince Harry said: “As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity.”

The Duchess of Sussex added: “Every four years, we’re told the same thing, ‘This is the most important election of our lifetime.’ But this one is.

“When we vote, our values are put into action, and our voices are heard.”

The Duchess is the first person in the modern royal family to vote in a US presidential election.

A source close to the couple told People Magazine that she “is voting in this election”.
