There is no law in the UK barring members of the Royal Family from voting at a local or general election.

However, the Queen and her relatives usually choose not to exercise this democratic right to remain as neutral as possible in the eye of British voters and to avoid swaying public opinion.

The Royal Family's official website, Royal.uk, read: "As Head of State The Queen has to remain strictly neutral with respect to political matters.

"By convention, The Queen does not vote or stand for election, however Her Majesty does have important ceremonial and formal roles in relation to the government of the UK."

The Duchess of Sussex had previously suggested she would vote at the 2020 US election.

In August, Meghan first addressed the issue of voting in a statement issued to Marie Claire magazine.

The former actor was among the 100 influential women asked by the magazine why they would vote in the 2020 election.

Meghan replied saying: "I know what it's like to have a voice, and also what it's like to feel voiceless.
