Harry, Meghan accept award for stand against royal family

Popular News

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle accepted a human rights award at a "Ripple of Hope" gala in New York where they were honoured for addressing racial injustice and mental health.

The couple received the award from the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Foundation which honours leaders across government, business, advocacy and entertainment who have shown an "unwavering commitment to social change".

Kerry Kennedy, president of the foundation and daughter of the US senator Robert F. Kennedy, said the couple had been "incredibly brave" to talk about their experience of racial injustice in the royal family and mental illness, the Telegraph earlier reported.

The award came days before a much-anticipated Netflix documentary series about the couple amid widespread speculation over what the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will say about the royal family.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down from royal duties two years ago and moved to California. They have delivered criticism of the British monarchy and accused it of racism, accusations that the family has dismissed.
