Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to receive humanitarian award

Next week, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be recognized for their humanitarian and charitable work with the Archewell Foundation.

The charity’s executive director, James Holt, will accept the Partner Organization Award on the couple’s behalf at a ceremony that will take place in New York City. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are receiving the honor for their support of Afghan refugees and “generous financial support” they have given to the Human First Coalition.

Senator Richard Blumenthal of the United States will also receive the Haji Abdul Rauf Service Award for his efforts to support Afghan refugees and asylum seekers in addition to the other two.

Tickets for the prestigious award ceremony will cost $100, with all proceeds going to charity. It will include traditional Afghan food, music, and performances.

The news comes as the royal couple had a brief scare at their Montecito home due to rumors that mountain lions were in the area.

Additionally, they were specifically warned to take care of their dogs and their flock of chickens that they have been keeping on their estate.

The lion was spotted prowling about five miles away, close to the driveway of another homeowner, according to security footage that MailOnline was able to obtain.

“The fact that we have security footage shows though that residents are taking this seriously as it was shot by a camera which is what we’ve been urging residents to install,” said Sharon Byrne, executive director of the Montecito Association.

Added her: “Chickens need to be safe and secure because they can be a quick and easy source of food for animals that go hunting.

“We want everyone in the area to secure their residences, chicken coops, and any other animals they may own.”

Sharon continued, hopefully: “We also advise residents to install night lighting, alarms, cameras, and other security measures to prevent animals from rummaging through their trash in search of food scraps.

We’re hoping this mountain lion moves on on its own because they are solitary animals and, in the end, they don’t like being around people.

    Mountain Lions !!!??? While I care about he chickens and animals, PLEASE PROTECT MY KIDS FIRST.

    Receiving a humanitarian award is an awesome honor. Maybe we’ll run into each other if I decide to purchase a ticket to attend the ceremony and I haven’t heard from Dave by then.

    I know…this is a mess. I never thought I’d ever be in this type of situation.
