The NAACP Image Awards’ President’s Award is a high honor in recognition of special achievement and distinguished public service. Past winners include Muhammad Ali, Jesse Jackson, LeBron James, and Rihanna.

In a statement announcing Meghan and Harry receiving the award, Derrick Johnson, President and CEO of the NAACP, said, “We’re thrilled to present this award to Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who together have heeded the call to social justice and have joined the struggle for equity both in the US and around the world. 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.”

Meghan and Harry’s appearance comes after the couple was photographed earlier this month at dinner in Santa Barbara with Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank. It was a rare public outing for the couple, who has lived a very private, low-key life with their two children Lili and Archie in Montecito, California, since stepping back from their senior royal family roles two years ago.
