Prince Harry and Princess Meghan accepted Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Ripple of Hope Award in New York for addressing racial injustice in the Royal family institution and mental health.
“Meghan, 41, dazzled in a white off-the-shoulder dress with long sleeves by Louis Vuitton. The Suits paired chic look with a few small accessories – including Princess Diana’s famous aquamarine ring — and had her hair swept back into a low bun. Harry, 38, kept it classic in a black and white suit. “
“When the duke and duchess accepted our award laureate invitation back in March, we were thrilled. The couple has always stood out for their willingness to speak up and change the narrative on racial justice and mental health around the world,” Kerry Kennedy, president of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy, said in a press release in October. “They embody the type of moral courage that my father once called the ‘one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change.’”
Kerry Kennedy, president of the Foundation and daughter of the slain U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy, said the couple had been “incredibly brave” to talk about their experience of racial injustice and mental illness, the Telegraph reported.
