Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are preparing to attend an important ceremony in New York. At the Robert F. Kennedy Foundation event, the “rebellious” dukes will receive a special award, which they have been working towards for a long time.
The former American actress and the British Prince will be honored with the Ripple of Hope award for bravely challenging “racism” in the Royal Family. This award is given to “exemplary leaders” who have demonstrated an “unwavering commitment” to social change.
Meghan and Harry will receive the award at the hands of Robert Kennedy’s niece, Kerry. She stressed that the Dukes of Sussex had the courage to confront the monarchy itself and tried to prove that there could be no place for “racism” and mental health misunderstandings.
The couple openly expressed their opinion and went against long-standing traditions and foundations that were previously considered unshakable. At the same time, the couple was well aware of what such behavior could turn into.
“They knew that if they did this, there would be consequences, that they would lose their family, their position in this world, and that people would blame them for it. However, they did it anyway, because they simply could not do otherwise. I think they acted «heroically» by taking this step,” The Sun quoted Kerry Kennedy as saying.
Recently, Meghan Markle was condemned online. The former American actress tries to use a British accent in her speech: for this, the Prince’s wife was caustically ridiculed.
