Ms Kennedy, whose association The Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights is to award the Ripple of Hope gong to the Sussexes on December 6, told The Telegraph when discussing Meghan and Harry’s achievements: “They went to the oldest institution in UK history and told them what they were doing wrong, that they couldn’t have structural racism within the institution; that they could not maintain a misunderstanding about mental health.” After saying the Sussexes have the “moral courage” to discuss racial justice, she added: “Few would have the courage to question their colleagues, family and community about the power structure they maintained, and this is what Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have done.” Following the broadcast of Ms Winfrey’s interview with the Sussexes, the Firm famously issued a brief statement in which it described the issues raised by the Duke and Duchess were “concerning” and that, while “some recollections may vary”, they would be taken seriously and addressed privately by the family.

TV host rages as Meghan and Harry get award for ‘heroic stance’ against royals

Speaking on Australia’s The Morning Show, entertainment reporter Peter Ford suggested the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are “collecting awards” for seemingly “attacking their own family”.

Referring to the upcoming Ripple of Hope Award Gala hosted by the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights organisation, Mr Ford said: “Let’s be blunt about this, they are now going up to collect awards for attacking their own family.”

This comes after Kerry Kennedy, the daughter of Robert F. Kennedy, stated the couple is receiving the award on December 6 for their “heroic stance” against structural racism within the institution of monarchy.

Kate stopped royal aides sharing fashion details over cost concerns

Kate, Princess of Wales, is reportedly no longer sharing details of her outfits chosen for royal engagements due to the sensitivity surrounding the current cost-of-living crisis.

Speaking on the latest episode of the Daily Express’ Royal Round-Up, royal correspondent Richard Palmer discussed the decision.

He said: “I think they will on big [events] like when there’s a state banquet or things like that [or], you know, an overseas visit.”

Sharing his views on the move, he also said: “I think the cost-of-living crisis may well be part of that as well.

“It’s not a good look, is it, to turn up to a food bank in a £3,000 coat.”

He added: “But again, there’s always that difficult balance because people expect Princesses to look like a Princess.

“To look glamorous and to look something different from the people you see in the high street.”

The expert added he believes Kate will “mix and match” her outfit choices, wearing at times high street dresses and, at other events, expensive designer gowns.
