Meghan and Harry’s award branded ‘suspicious’ over huge publicity to organisation


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are set to receive the Robert F. Kennedy Ripple of Hope Award next month.

“It comes, I think, four days after William and Catherine are in Boston, you know as you say, for getting involved with the JFK library and getting the Earthshot prize, or giving it out, announcing it.

“Then, you know, something for Harry and Meghan a few days later.”

He added: “It all seems a bit weird.

“As if it has got caught up in, sort of, Kennedy politics.”

Ms Elvin said: “Cynics might say, not me, that they wanted Harry and Meghan at this prestigious [and] getting this award and they had to think of a way to make that something.”

Mr Eden pointed out: “Clearly it’s got them lots of attention, we’re all talking about it and maybe that’s what they want.

“[Maybe] they want, you know, attention for their organisation, so good luck to them.

“But, I don’t think we really need to pay too much attention to this, you know, so-called human rights award.”

Meghan and Harry have been urged to not turn up to the ceremony with fears this could heighten the, already tense, relations with the Royal Family.

However, former royal correspondent Jennie Bond recently told GB News that the couple is in a “difficult position”, claiming that accepting the award on a public stage could “make things even worse” and “the rift could be even deeper”.

Meghan told Oprah that there had been some concern as to what colour their then-unborn child’s skin was going to be.

The couple have never revealed who made the comments, although Harry made clear it was not his late grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II or Prince Philip.
