Just days ahead of their much talked about Netflix docuseries release, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle faced an awkward grilling from journalists.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have faced much criticism since the trailer for Harry and Meghan' was released in recent days. And in a public appearance last night (6 December), the pair were asked a bunch of testing questions about the Netflix series.
Harry and Meghan attended a New York gala hosted by the Robert F Kennedy Human Rights organisation, where they picked up the Ripple of Hope award.
But as expected, the focus couldn't have been further away from their award.
In footage obtained by Sky News, one reporter can be heard asking the prince: "Do you have a message for your family, Harry?", before adding: "Are you harming your family, Harry?"
The brutal questions came while the couple were posing for pictures on the red carpet, but it didn't stop there.
As the pair started to head into the posh event, reporters threw even harsher questions at the Sussex's.
"Harry, are you putting money before family — are you putting money before family?" another reporter shouted.
The couple did not respond to any of the questions, with Harry saying 'so many questions' as he walked off with his wife.
Meghan was also grilled by reporters but not with the questions you'd expect.
Instead of the Netflix series or questions asked on claims she made in that now infamous Oprah Winfrey interview, Meghan was asked by one reporter where she got her dress from.
After escaping the grilling, the pair were soon on stage to accept their reward.
Upon accepting the award, Harry said: "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.
"We understand this honour, not about the culmination of a life's work, but instead and in many ways for us, a beginning.
"Bobby Kennedy said, '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."
The first part of Harry and Meghan's six-part documentary series - which will surely cause fireworks - is out tomorrow (8 December) on Netflix. The second part will be released on 15 December.
