Piers Morgan scoffs at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's award for 'heroic' royal exit
Piers Morgan, 57, was stunned to learn a foundation set up to honour President J F Kennedy's brother Robert has awarded Meghan Markle and Prince Harry a Ripple Of Hope Award, a status they share with Ukrainian President Zelensky this year.The pair will join a list of former winners which includes Barack Obama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu - and Piers scoffed when he discovered they were being placed in the same category, exclaiming it was hard to imagine "two less heroic figures in modern history".Kerry Kennedy, one of Robert's 11 children, insisted Meghan and Harry had "changed the narrative" around the world about mental health and racial justice.However, Piers branded them greedy and argued they had set out to cause "as much damage to the monarchy as they can" without providing evidence of any abuse they suffered.Kerry, whose famous father once worked with the civil rights activist Dr Martin Luther King Jr, had praised the pair for their "moral courage".He told the Telegraph: "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.""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," he continued."They believed they couldn’t live with themselves if they didn’t question this authority.
