Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be honored at a lavish awards ceremony next month for taking “brave” action against the royal family’s “authority”.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be presented with the Robert F. Kennedy Ripple of Hope Award on December 6, designed to recognize the work of “exemplary leaders”.
Kerry Kennedy, who heads the Robert F. Kennedy Foundation and is the niece of the late president John F. Kennedy, told Spanish news outlet El Confidential: “They went to the oldest institution in British history and told them what they had done wrong. , that they couldn’t have structural racism within the institution. That they couldn’t perpetuate misconceptions about mental health.
“They knew that if they did, there would be consequences, they would be ostracized, they would lose their place in their family, in this structure, and people would blame them for it.
“They did it anyway because they believed that if they didn’t question that authority, they couldn’t live with themselves. I think they’ve been brave in taking that step.
