Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were asked by a heckler if they were “destroying the royal family” for their Netflix documentary.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex faced an avalanche of questions at the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights (RFKHR) Gala in New York City last night.

It was her first public appearance since the trailer for her Netflix docuseries Harry & Meghan: A Global Event was released.

When they arrived at the Hilton Midtown, someone hissed, “Harry, what do you think about destroying the royal family?”

“Meghan, you destroyed the royal family,” the person added, according to video footage tweeted by ITV journalist Fred Dimbleby.

Others in the crowd cheered the couple as they got out of the car while another shouted, “That’s him, that’s him!”

Members of the press later hurled questions at the couple such as “Are you harming your family, Harry?” and, ‘Harry, do you put money before family?’

Another asked: “Do you have a message for your family?”

Harry replied, “So many questions,” before being escorted off the blue carpet.

The trailer for the Sussexes’ Netflix show set the tone almost immediately: unflattering honesty about a royal family so often shrouded in secrecy.

It will focus on how Meghan’s marriage into the royal family became a “feeding frenzy,” Harry said in the trailer.

Meghan added, “I knew they would never protect you.”

In a nod to his mother, Princess Diana, Harry said: “I was scared. I didn’t want history to repeat itself.”

Last night, the couple were presented with RFKHR’s top humanitarian award for their activism for racial justice and mental health.

According to RFKHR, the Ripple of Hope Award is presented to leaders who have “shown an unwavering commitment to social change and a commitment to protecting and promoting justice, justice and human rights.”

The organization’s president and daughter of Robert F. Kennedy, Kerry Kennedy, said Meghan and Harry’s open talks about mental illness and racism were “incredibly brave.”

“They stood up, they spoke about racial justice, and they spoke about mental illness in an incredibly brave way,” she told American outlet Extra last night.

“It is incredibly important and very courageous for Meghan to come out on national television at this point and normalize the mental health discussion.”
