Last year, Prince Harry and Meghan were awarded the Ripple of Hope prize by the Robert F Kennedy Foundation for their “heroic” stand against “structural racism” in the royal family.

Meghan and Steinem are close friends, as consumers will know from Meghan’s podcasts and interviews, where she has been referred to as a “dear friend”.
Meghan said of her: “She reminds me that when you have anger you have to channel that energy into something that makes a difference. This is activism. It’s about how we show up.”
