Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose not to answer a tricky question as they faced the media at the star-studded Robert F Kennedy Human Rights gala last night (December 6).
As the Duke and Duchess strode past the press pack, one determined reporter called out “do you have a message for your family,” and when they didn’t get a response followed that up by demanding “are you harming your family Harry?”.
But then a second voice called out to ask Harry if he is “putting money before his family” to which a clearly unimpressed Duke muttered “so many questions” before hurrying into the auditorium.

At the gala, Harry and Meghan were presented with a Ripple of Hope Award in recognition of their work in the areas of mental health and racial justice.
In his acceptance speech, the Duke of Sussex spoke of his admiration for Robert F Kennedy, younger brother of early Sixties president John F Kennedy.
“As we all face a complete and challenging time in the world, we choose the path of optimism of care for each other and our communities,” he said.
“We understand this honour, not about the culmination of a life's work, but instead and in many ways for us, a beginning”.
He added: “Bobby Kennedy said that ‘each time a man stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope’.”

Meghan added: “The enduring dream of RFK of a just and peaceful world is so much more than a simple hope. It's a direct ask, a specific challenge, a call to action, a test of individual courage and collective spirit.
“And his appeal to humanity is as relevant today as it was in 1966 when he stood before the University of Cape Town, a place we've visited and hold close to our hearts. And he delivered a vision for the common good of society.
“He also said those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance”.
In a statement, the couple connected the work their own organisation was doing with the RFK foundation.
They wrote: “The values of RFK Foundation and The Archewell Foundation are aligned in our shared belief of courage over fear, and love over hate.
“Together we know that a ripple of hope can turn into a wave of change.”
