Meghan echoes Kate’s Boston look at NYC awards hours before Netflix documentary airs

Harry & Meghan new trailer

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have arrived in New York City ahead of the 2022 Robert F Kennedy Human Rights Ripple of Hope Award gala, where they and other “exemplary leaders” will be honoured for their “unwavering commitment to social change”.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who travelled via private jet from their home in California, were seen arriving on Monday, with the awards ceremony set to take place on Tuesday 6 December.

It is expected that the couple will make a red carpet appearance on Tuesday ahead of the gala, where they will be honoured alongside Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and late NBA star Bill Russell for their work “to protect and advance equity, justice, and human rights”.

The royal couple’s trip comes just days before the first instalment of their highly anticipated Netflix documentary Harry & Meghan will be released, with the first three episodes to be released on Thursday 8 December. Three additional episodes will be released on Thursday 15 December.

Follow along with the latest updates about Meghan and Harry’s trip to New York City below.

Alec Baldwin praises Harry and Meghan for handling of press focus

“I was kind of shocked for them to come here and do this,” the actor said at the Ripple of Hope gala blue carpet.

“To handle difficult circumstances in the press without having too much difficulty. There’s always going to be certain difficulties.”

Baldwin joked that he might become “their driver” and lauded them for having “chosen a different path.”

“They’re newly arrived in the states. They haven’t been here that long. I think it’s great that they have agreed to support this cause which we’ve supported for years.”

The trailer also included a shot of Meghan and Harry photographed from above during their visit to Archbishop Tutu’s residence in Cape Town.

However, after the release of the trailer, Robert Jobson, the royal editor of the Evening Standard, claimed that the photo was not taken without the couple’s consent.

“This photograph used by Netflix and Harry and Meghan to suggest intrusion by the press is a complete travesty,” he wrote on Twitter.

The duke and duchess have also faced criticism over the trailer for their upcoming Netflix documentary, after fans noticed that many of the photos used appeared to be taken at events where Harry and Meghan were not present.

One photo used in the trailer appeared to have been taken in 2011, during a Harry Potter premiere, while another clip included in the trailer, which is meant to depict paparazzi surrounding the couple, appears to have been taken when Katie Price arrived at court in December, according to the BBC.
