“Courage to take on the Royal Family’s ‘power structure’”:- Kerry Kennedy On Rewarding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle With The Ripple of Hope Awards

Published 11/21/2022, 7:30 PM EST

Although there have been far more disparaging remarks about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, their righteousness and self-virtues have stood the test of time. Ever since the infamous Megxit that marked their renunciation from the Palace’s ways, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have constantly put a bold front despite all ramifications. Their selfless service for the betterment of people has finally been recognized. 

The Times recently published that a longtime legitimate foundation will bestow Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with an honorable award. Apart from participating in various significant philanthropic commitments, the Duke and the Duchess have also left their mark on the oldest institution in UK history. Seems like the society that once was filled with all abhorrence for the couple has now finally had a change of heart.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to receive the Ripple of Hope Award

Kerry Kennedy, 83, is hosting The New York Gala 2022. She has reportedly said that the Duke and his Duchess would get awarded for having the “courage to take on the Royal Family’s ‘power structure’”. At the event, with immense pride and honor, the Robert F Kennedy Foundation will bestow the couple with the Ripple of Hope Awards. The award ceremony is to take place on the 6th of December, 2022. It is owing to the well-established fact that they have one among a few exemplary leaders with an unwavering commitment to social change. 

The lawyer also put forward the reason behind handing the self-exiled couple such an honorable mention. That said, she stated how they straight-up condemned the oldest UK building, presumably the Palace. This came after their admission to certain infamous practices in the Royal Family in the bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview.

The human rights activist also explained how challenging it has been for the dynamic duo to take such a step. She made us aware of how the move had escalated a dangerous risk regarding their family, job, and social status. Moreover, it also risked their already strained ties with the Royal Family. That said, it reportedly rubbed some fresh salt on an old wound. However, they did it anyway. They believed they could not face themselves if they didn’t question authority.
