Prince Harry and Meghan stepped out for their first public appearance of the year at the NAACP Images awards last weekend. It was here that the pair were awarded the President's Award for their ‘distinguished public service.’ This prestigious award has previously been awarded to stars like Rihanna and LeBron James.
During their acceptance speech, Meghan made a touching tribute to Harry’s mother Princess Diana (opens in new tab) by wearing a sapphire bracelet that previously belonged to her.
Prince Harry then made a rare, romantic confession about his wife, with whom he shares two children, Archie and Lilibet (opens in new tab). He revealed that he believes they were "brought together for a reason". He acknowledged that though he and Meghan are from ‘very different’ backgrounds they were clearly meant to find each other.
He said, "I think it's safe to say that I come from a very different background from my incredible wife, yet our lives were brought together for a reason.
"We share a commitment to a life of service, a responsibility to combat injustice, and a belief that the most often overlooked are the most important to listen to.”
Harry also used the platform to condemn the invasion of Ukraine, saying, “We would like to acknowledge the people of Ukraine, who urgently need our continued support as a global community.”
They also made a powerful statement (opens in new tab) on their Archewell website last week, writing that they “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”.
