@smarijuli2005 agreed: “Amazing! A well-deserved recognition!”

@andrews_ange said: “From their engagement interview they they have passions to create change and have a positive impact.

“They were both doing that before they met and have continued to do good. Excellent choice. They always uplift worthwhile causes!”

@Tinkerbellfern commented: “Prodigious financial success for a couple that hastily departed UK well knowing neither had any means of earning a living to maintain a lifestyle which required costly security.

“H & M shared millions from the very first Contract Bravo. King & Queen of ‘Living A Life of Service’.”

While @M2theMax linked to the war in Ukraine, saying: “With all the chaos happening in Eastern Europe right now, this is welcome news.”

The NAACP was set up in 1909 in response to ongoing violence against black people.

It is the US’s largest and most pre-eminent civil rights organisation, with more than two million activists.

In a statement, the president and CEO of NAACP, Derrick Johnson, said that the organisation is “thrilled” to present this award to Prince Harry and Meghan.

He added: “Together (they) have heeded the call to social justice and have joined the struggle for equity both in the U.S. and around the world.”

At the same time, the couple formed a collaboration, to launch the NAACP-Archewell Digital Civil Rights Award.

This award aims to recognise those “creating transformational change—at the intersection of social justice and tech – to advance civil and human rights”.

Commenting on the new award, Mr Johnson said: “Not only do they continue to lead by example, The Duke and Duchess have also decided to inspire the next generation of activists through the NAACP-Archewell Digital Civil Rights Award, ensuring the support and recognition of generations of civil rights leaders to come.”

The first recipient of the award will be Safiya Umoja Noble, a Professor at UCLA, and the co-Founder of the UCLA Center for Critical Internet Inquiry.

Safiya is the author of Algorithms of Oppression, a book based on research addressing the relationship between Google search algorithm and discriminatory biases.
