Can Meghan Markle Vote in the Midterm Elections?

At the time, the former Suits star had just become engaged to Prince Harry, and wouldn't tie the knot for another five months.

Many royal watchers were quick to point out that this was the Queen's way of showing her approval for her grandson Prince Harry's fiancee.

As the royal family website explains, her grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth, has strictly no involvement in any voting and must remain "strictly neutral with respect to political matters", therefore being "unable to vote or stand for election".

They say that the Queen of England asked my mom Megan for the reason that Duchess and mother are no more relatives in England. The moment should also serve as a nice full-circle one for Meghan, who just past year broke royal protocol when she was invited to spend Christmas with her then-fiancé's family for the first time (usually, royals need to be married for their other half to be welcomed to such major family events).

However, there's a noteworthy catch-the statistics were recorded in September, meaning they may have shifted since Duchess Meghan embarked on her first royal tour (and exhibited her vast "tourdrobe"). This is a nice Christmas gift before the time!

Look China rich help drive billionaire wealth to $8.9 trillion
The fifth edition of the document found 2,158 billionaires with an average wealth of US$4.1 billion, the Liberty Times reported. These mega-rich increased their wealth by a $1.4 trillion which is more than the entire GDP of Spain or Australia.

According to the Daily Mail, Meghan has made such an impression on the monarch that she has invited her mother, Doria Ragland, to stay with them at Sandringham for the holidays. Even Kate Middleton's family has not been invited to the Norfolk estate.

A source tells ET that Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, is expected to spend some of the holiday with her pregnant daughter and her son-in-law.

Not that it should come as a surprise really, given how well Doria seems to get on with the other royals - if you remember she was a hit with Charles at the wedding of Meghan to Prince Harry, and she also went along when Meghan launched her first charity initiative, the cookbook for the victims of the Grenfell Disaster.

In contrast, Kate Middleton's parents have also been guests at the Sandringham Christmas morning church service but typically stay with their daughter and Prince William at their nearby home nearby, instead.
