The statement read: “Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and all of us at Archewell stand with the people of Ukraine against this violation of international and humanitarian law and encourage the world community and its leaders to do the same.”
It came after it was announced that Harry and Meghan will attend the NAACP Awards on Saturday, where they will receive the prestigious President’s Awards to mark their special achievement for ‘distinguished public service’.
And it is not the first time they have spoken out about a major problem and global conflict. After moving to the US in 2020, they were accused of running in the by-elections when they urged voters to ‘reject hate speech’ in a message that was widely interpreted as an attack on Donald Trump and tacit support for Joe Biden’s campaign.
Last August the ‘heartbroken’ Sussexes said the Taliban advance in Afghanistan left them “speechless” in a lengthy statement.
But the couple has been criticized by a royal expert who called it “another attempt to form an alternative awake royal family” and by social media users who marked and said the statement “vague publicity in search of word salad” that it was “irrelevant”, as it does indicate how they will personally help in the crisis.
And in December, Harry warned of “corporate greed and political failure” prolonging the pandemic – calling for global vaccine equity and comparing it to the HIV crisis of the 1980s and 1990s.

Her words followed Putin’s conviction of Boris Johnson earlier on Tuesday.
In a speech to the nation, the prime minister said the Russian president could not be allowed to ‘snoop’ freedom into Ukraine with an act of ‘arbitrary and reckless aggression’.
He said Mr Putin had unleashed “war” on the continent and that the West should respond to ensure the eventual “failure” of his offensive “diplomatically, politically, economically and ultimately militarily”.
“Our mission is clear. “Diplomatically, politically, economically, and ultimately, militarily, this horrific and barbaric enterprise of Vladimir Putin must end in failure.”
Mr. Putin openly branded a ‘dictator’, the prime minister admitting that the coming months may be ‘angry’, but the ‘flame of freedom’ will ‘flare up again in Ukraine’.
“For all his bombs and tanks and missiles, I do not believe that the Russian dictator will ever suppress the national feeling of the Ukrainians and their passionate conviction that their country would be free,” he added.
It is revealed that Harry and Meghan will attend the NAACP Awards on Saturday, where they will receive the prestigious President’s Awards to mark their special achievement for ‘famous public service’.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are joining forces with Muhammad Ali, Rihanna, LeBron James, Bill Clinton and Venus and Serena Williams to take the lead.
The ceremony is her first major Hollywood event since leaving the royal family, and will see her rub shoulders with host Anthony Anderson and dozens of A-listers.
“It is a real honor to be recognized by President Derrick Johnson and the NAACP, whose efforts to promote racial justice and civil rights are as important today as they were nearly 115 years ago,” the couple said in a statement.
‘We are proud to support the work of the NAACP and also to work with the organization on the newly created annual NAACP-Archewell Digital Civil Rights Award, which will be presented to Dr. Safiya Noble as part of the 53rd NAACP Image Awards. ‘
