Reflecting on Harry and Meghan’s award, President of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, Kerry Kennedy, told journalist Gustavo Egusquiza: “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.”
She continued: “They knew that if they did this there would be consequences, that they would be ostracized, they would lose their family, their position within this structure, and that people would blame them for it… They have done it anyway because they believed they couldn’t live with themselves if they didn’t question this authority.”
