People do not understand what to give a reward to the scandalous prince.
The recent news about Meghan Markle and her husband Harry has shocked the British. The fact is that, as it became known, the prince and duchess were awarded an honorary award. They received the Ripple of Hope Award from the Robert Kennedy Foundation for their contribution to the fight for human rights. More specifically, Meghan and Harry were noted for their “opposition to racism.” And now the British are vigorously discussing this event. This was reported by Express.co.uk.
Apparently, the prince and duchess will receive an award for the fact that in their already infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey, which they gave in 2021, the couple made claims against one of the members of the royal family, in fact accusing him of racism. Neither the prince nor the duchess, as far as is known, made any contribution to the fight against racism. However, representatives of the Kennedy Foundation apparently believe that this is more than enough. So, the head of the fund, Kerry Kennedy, the senator’s daughter, said that she finds the actions of Megan and Harry “courageous.”
Megan herself, apparently, fully agrees with the words – it’s not for nothing that she has repeatedly compared herself to Nelson Mandela. Which, by the way, caused sincere indignation of his grandson. However, not everyone agrees with this assessment. So, the other day, the well-known TV presenter and journalist Lizzy Candy said that for her the decision to award Megan and Harry looks at least ridiculous, if not considered outrageous. After all, the entire “merit” of the duchess lies in the fact that during the interview she stated that one of Elizabeth’s relatives was concerned about how dark her skin with Harry would be for a child who was not yet born. At the same time, she did not name the “racist”, and also could not provide any evidence that the statement itself took place at all. According to Kandi, the “courageous” Megan was afraid to name her “offender” solely because this situation did not exist at all. And if she pointed to a specific person, he, of course, would sue her for libel.
At the same time, as Kandy noted, and many Britons agree with her, it is not just tactless to recall now that ill-fated interview, which no doubt shortened the lives of both Elizabeth and her late husband Prince Philip. After all, not even three months have passed since the death of Elizabeth. And rewarding Meghan with Harry at a time when the family is still mourning the late monarch looks like a direct insult to her memory.
