Why is Meghan still wait­ing for her Bri­tish cit­i­zen­ship?

Scottish Daily Mail - - News -

THE Duchess of Sus­sex, who de­fied con­ven­tion last month by ring­ing a Labour MP to thank her for her sup­port, has rea­son to feel unloved by Boris John­son’s Gov­ern­ment.

For I hear Prince Harry’s wife is still wait­ing to be granted Bri­tish cit­i­zen­ship, de­spite ap­ply­ing up to two years ago.

‘Meghan is not yet a Bri­tish cit­i­zen,’ a friend of the Amer­i­can con­firms. ‘It might seem ex­tra­or­di­nary, given that she’s been mar­ried to the Queen’s grand­son for 18 months, but she ac­cepts that it’s a slow process.’

The de­lay means that Meghan won’t be able to vote in the gen­eral elec­tion. Mem­bers of the Royal Fam­ily are al­lowed to cast a bal­lot but, by tra­di­tion, choose not to do so.

How­ever, the Duchess has shown on mul­ti­ple oc­ca­sions that she’s pre­pared to defy con­ven­tion. A spokesman de­clines to say if she will vote in the U.S. pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.

On Tues­day, Meghan held a se­cret meet­ing with for­mer Demo­cratic con­tender Hil­lary Clin­ton at her Frog­more Cot­tage home.

She had pub­licly sup­ported her while still an actress, as well as us­ing her fame to lament Brexit and at­tack Hil­lary’s ri­val Don­ald Trump as ‘misog­y­nis­tic’ and ‘di­vi­sive’.
