Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Show Support For Ukraine

“We stand with the people of Ukraine,” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have said with a statement on their Archewell website.
Since stepping down from the royal family, the couple have spoken out on humanitarian issues, while focussing on fighting vaccine hesitancy as well as gender and racial inequality.
The couple will attend the NAACP Image Awards on Saturday, where they’ll receive the President’s Award in recognition of special achievement and distinguished public service.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have issued a statement on the Russian Invasion of Ukraine via their Archewell website.
The statement says: “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and all of us at Archewell stand with the people of Ukraine against this breach of international and humanitarian law and encourage the global community and its leaders to do the same.”
The news comes after Russia invaded Ukraine for control of Chernobyl, with many calling the invasion the biggest attack on a European state since World War II.
Harry and Meghan will also attend the NAACP Image Awards on Saturday, where they’ll receive the President’s Award in recognition of special achievement and distinguished public service. Past recipients of the award included Muhammad Ali, Jesse Jackson, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, LeBron James and Rihanna.
The couple’s focus since starting their foundation has been on tackling Covid-19 and encouraging vaccinations, as well as fighting gender and racial inequality.
“It’s a true honour to be recognised by President Derrick Johnson and the NAACP, whose efforts to propel racial justice and civil rights are as vital today as they were nearly 115 years ago.”
The couple has also teamed up with the NAACP on a new annual award, People reports, which will recognise leaders creating transformational change at the intersection of social justice and technology to advance civil and human rights.
Dr Safiya Noble will be the first recipient of the award and will receive a $100 000 unrestricted stipend to be used to continue her work.
Noble is a Professor of Gender Studies and African American Studies, and recognised as a MacArthur Fellow for her work on algorithmic discrimination which enabled her founding of Equity Engine, a non-profit committed to creating the conditions for black women and women of colour to thrive through access to education, investments, mentorship and mutual aid.
