The royal family may have welcomed Meghan Markle with open arms, but when it comes to Prince Harry's friends, it's another story. According to a new report by the Daily Beast, Meghan's lefty political views don't sit well with the old money set with which the duke has long associated.

Well, this is a little awkward. 

  • Apparently, Meghan is well aware that being a royal means keeping your political stances to yourself, but nevertheless, Harry's friends are "on" to her.

    Lady Colin Campbell, a writer and confidante of Princess Diana, recently told the Daily Beast that Meghan has occasionally let her politics slip in front of Harry's friends and they're not here for it.

    "Her politics are an issue," Campbell said. "She is ultra-liberal and that trendy-lefty stuff does not go down well with some of Harry’s friends. He has introduced her to them all at parties and weddings and private dinners, but she is very anti- a lot of the things that their world functions upon, such as shooting."

  • Since marrying Prince Harry, Meghan hasn't vocalized her opinion on any political issues -- but it doesn't take a detective to know where she stands.

    Way back when Meghan had an Instagram account, she vocally supported Hillary Clinton and slammed Donald Trump and his misogyny on numerous occasions. She also was a supporter of Barack Obama, who, for the record, is Prince Harry's buddy. 

  • Harry obviously is well aware of where his wife sits on the political spectrum and doesn't seem to mind, so it's odd it's an issue with his friends.

    If Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Queen Elizabeth for crying out loud can accept Meghan, regardless of her views, why can't Harry's friends get over it?

    Meghan isn't going anywhere, so Harry's hoity-toity buddies are just going to have to get used to her, politics and all. And it may not be a bad idea, for everyone, to stick to mainly surface topics during conversations.
