When Prince Harry called the British press "bigot" during his March interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Society of Editors was quick to respond that it was "unacceptable" for the Sussexes to make such claims. However, the ensuing backlash resulted in the company's executive director resigning and an annual awards ceremony being postponed after editors and high-profile journalists were among those criticizing the company's position.
Now Harry and Meghan are trying to reinforce the voices of those who accuse the Society of Editors of not showing genuine commitment to change. "Without admitting that there is racism and withdrawing their previous writing, the Society of Editors denies the lived experiences of journalists of color and those who have received unfavorable media coverage only because of their skin color ..." We, the undersigned colored journalists, can do not believe in an organization that is so far removed from our reality and we urge its affiliates to consider continuing to join the group, ”read a letter signed by 123 journalists. The letter was sent after the postponed awards ceremony took place and the winners were announced.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex used their profiles to supplement the letter, saying they want to “raise awareness among a coalition of British journalists who are calling for stronger initiatives to tackle the underrepresentation, inequality and racial bigotry that are still in this one important industry. "A post on its Archewell website also states that the organization is" a proud supporter of journalistic diversity and news media organizations committed to telling the truth, exposing untold stories and giving voice to the voiceless.
