Reportedly, the Queen is not happy after the appearance of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in a political video. According to a royal source, their participation in a video where they encourage Americans to vote in their next presidential election "violated" the agreement the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have with the Crown after their separation from the royal family.

There is a new fire to put out in the British monarchy. The video in which Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, encouraged American citizens to vote in the upcoming election not only infuriated Donald Trump, it also attracted problems with Queen Elizabeth II. According to The Sunday Times, Harry and Meghan's participation in the video presented during the event TIME 100 was a "violation" of the "Megxit" deal made between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Queen after their separation from the royal family.

Last week, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made an unusual appearance on television to urge Americans to register and vote in opposition to "reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity" in the upcoming American presidential election.

Reactions to the video were swift, including that of President Donald Trump, who said he's "not a fan" of Meghan Markle. However, perhaps the most important reaction of all was that of the British Crown, which sees the encouragement of the royal couple as a "violation" of their agreements with the queen after withdrawing from their activities as senior working members of the royal family.

"The [royal] family are all wringing their hands, thinking: where is this going and does this abide by the deal to uphold the values of the Queen?" the source revealed to the newspaper The Sunday Times.

The repercussions of Harry and Meghan Markle's "political video"

According to the source, failure to comply with the agreements established after the so-called "Megxit" could prevent Prince Harry from establishing links with the British armed forces, as well as other members of the Crown, which would come as a great disappointment to the Prince.

"The door was left open. There were some things that Harry hoped he could opt back into. He dearly wants to hang on to the Royal Marines and the military appointments. That will be harder now," said the source.

The agreement Harry and Meghan have with Queen Elizabeth II is expected to be reviewed and renegotiated early next year.
