Commentator says Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are earning award for ‘attacking’ their family

Commentator Peter Ford shared his thoughts about the Sussexes’ award on Australia’s The Morning Show, pointing out how Harry and Meghan are earning an award for basically “attacking their own family.”

Ford noted that Robert F. Kennedy’s daughter Kerry Kennedy, who runs the human rights organization, said the Sussexes are receiving the award for their “heroic stance against structural racism within the royal family.”

Ford didn’t hold back, saying, “That’s why they are getting it. Let’s be blunt about this, they are now going up to collect awards for attacking their own family.”

He continued, “This is the same family who they were scratching at the door like cats to get to the queen’s deathbed. Once again we come back to this thing where they want it both ways.”

He noted, “They are great at putting out press releases and they’re great with the gunner — am I gonna do this, am I gonna do that?”

Ford added, “But what have they actually done? Really, what have they actually done? … You know, fighting racism is not putting out an untested claim on Oprah Winfrey, where you’re not even willing to name the person. That seems to be the extent of challenging racism within the royal family.”

Kennedy told Spanish news outlet El Confidencial the reasons why the Sussexes are receiving the award. “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,” Kennedy said.

“They knew that if they did this there would be consequences, that they would be ostracised, they would lose their family, their position within this structure, and that people would blame them for it,” she continued.

Kennedy added, “They have done it anyway because they believed they …read more
