Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are back in New York City! The Sussexes touched down in the Big Apple yesterday, ahead of tonight's Ripple of Hope Gala, where they will receive an award from the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights organization.

The couple are being recognized for their work with regards to racial justice, mental health, and other social impact initiatives. They were last in New York City this summer, when Prince Harry spoke at the United Nations General Assembly for Nelson Mandela International Day.

"When the Duke and Duchess accepted our award laureate invitation back in March, we were thrilled. The couple has always stood out for their willingness to speak up and change the narrative on racial justice and mental health around the world," Kerry Kennedy, president of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, and Robert F. Kennedy's daughter, said in a statement. "They embody the type of moral courage that my father once called the 'one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change.'"

Also being honored this evening are Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan, Siris co-founder Frank Baker, Invenergy CEO Michael Polsky, and NBA legend Bill Russell.

The gala is set to be the Sussexes first public appearance since the trailer for their Netflix docuseries, Harry & Meghan, dropped. The first three episodes of Harry & Meghan premiere on Thursday, December 8, and all eyes are on the couple for what they will reveal in the show.
