Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to add another feather to their already glorious hat. The couple will be honored with the Ripple of Hope award at a gala in New York on December 06. Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Foundation will give the award to acknowledge the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for their work towards mental health, investment in Ukraine Aid organizations, and support of Afghan refugees in the United States.
Along with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky and NBA legend Bil Russell will also be awarded in the ceremony. The Sussexes receiving the Ripple of Hope Award has not gone down well with a lot of people and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is one of them. He questioned the thought behind handing the award to the royal couple. Meanwhile, the royal biographer Angela Levin is also not happy with the California-based couple receiving the prestigious award.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could not build close relations with A-list celebrities
Angela Levin questioned the charitable credentials of the Sussexes. She believes that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s charities are based on fantasies and persuasions instead of facts. It is also not known how much percentage of their wealth and income the Duke and Duchess really contribute to noble causes.
“Are they really up there with earlier award winners? Whichever way you look at it, their alleged achievements seem fantasy laced with persuasion and who knows what else, rather than fact,” Levin said as quoted by Hindustan Times.
Further, the royal biographer accused the star couple of making their way to the award with false claims. She reckoned that despite trying their best; they have not received invitations for the right parties or have not been able to get close to certain celebrities.
Thus, the Sussex royals are trying to get the same award as other A-list starts to be in the same league. She further warned Markle by saying, “Meghan, especially, is giving the impression they will stop at nothing to get to the top. She should be careful, as it could all crumble.”
