Meghan Markle apparently broke royal protocol when she and Prince Harry were on their first foreign trip as a married couple.

The newly appointed Duchess of Sussex was busy meeting-and-greeting various guests of the British Ambassador to Ireland’s residence on Tuesday when she allegedly broke an important rule: not political.

According to the Irish senator Catherine No one, that was one of the leaders of the recent referendum to legalize abortion in Ireland, Meghan expressed her support for No one efforts.

In a since-deleted tweet captured by the Irish Sun, No one said, “A pleasure to meet Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex on the British Ambassador’s residence this evening. The Duchess and I had a conversation about the recent referendum – they watched with interest and was pleased with the result.”

No one was quick to come back on her tweet as many former members of the royal family are obliged to refrain from making political statements.

“I deleted because it was accidentally misleading – the Duchess was not, in any case, politically,” she later tweeted.

A rep for the royal family told Fox News they had no comment.

The royal couple will also visit the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association, the scene of the Bloody Sunday massacre committed by British troops against civilians in 1920 during their Ireland trip.

Harry said Tuesday that he hoped to take the opportunity to reflect on the “difficult passages” in the history between Britain and Ireland.
