Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to accept an award for standing up to "structural racism" in the royal family. The couple has won the prestigious Robert F. Kennedy Ripple of Hope Award for challenging the royal family's "power structure".

John F Kennedy's niece Kerry Kennedy, who is set to host the awards, said the pair took a brave stand against the royals. This comes as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had earlier made bombshell claims about racism within the Royal Family during an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The pair alleged a senior royal made a racist comment about the skin colour of their son Archie. Prince William was forced to defend the royal family after the interview, saying, "We are very much not a racist family".

Buckingham Palace also issued a statement that read, "While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately."
