Rob Rinder has labelled Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s human rights award ‘problematic’ as other campaigners were more deserving of the title – and we want to know if you agree.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were presented with The Ripple of Hope Award last night (November 6) for their stand against “structural racism” and mental health issues.
Judge Rinder star Robert accused the couple of lacking ‘humility’ by accepting the award which had been granted to them for challenging the racism within the royal family.
During Tuesday’s Good Morning Britain, the guest host said: “Surely what you would do is you have the profound and clear and honest humility as a human being, to know that there are real people out there who you should accept the award for, given the real human rights work they do.”
Rinder continued: “The idea I, or anybody else here would accept a human rights award given what is going on around the world, strikes me at the very least – to use the language of that world – problematic.”
Harry and Meghan received the award from the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights foundation, ahead of the couple’s upcoming Netflix documentary.
