The laureate is awarded to those who have worked to safeguard and advance equity, justice, and human rights and shown an unwavering commitment to social change.

In addition to supporting Afghan refugees, Harry and Meghan have invested in organizations that aid Ukraine and established the first-ever Digital Civil Rights Award in collaboration with the NAACP.

Robert Kennedy Human Rights President Kerry Kennedy stated: “We were thrilled when The Duke and Duchess accepted our award laureate invitation back in March.

The couple has always distinguished themselves by being willing to speak out and alter the global narrative on racial justice and mental health.

The moral courage that my father once described as the “one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change” is embodied by them, she continued.

The information was released on the same day that Harry’s father, King Charles, announced the date of his coronation.

It was made known that the new monarch will be installed on May 6, 2023, which also happens to be Harry’s son Archie’s fourth birthday.

Harry shared some information about his young son earlier this week during a video call with WellChild Award winners, including the fact that he has a toy giraffe named Gerald.

Since Peppa Pig also has a character who goes by the name of the giraffe, many fans interpreted this to mean that the Duke’s son enjoys the children’s television program.
