Duke and Duchess of Sussex give speech at The Kinsey Collection which showcases black art and history

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gave a speech during an exhibition about black art and history in Los Angeles last night.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were pictured at the Kinsey African American Art and History Collection’s event at SoFi Stadium yesterday.

In a video from the event posted on Instagram by screenwriter Matheos Coelho, Meghan could be heard saying: ‘I thought oh my gosh, the extension of that can mean you’re vocal about your success, they’ll see you and say you deserved it.

‘And hopefully you get to that place… so a huge thanks to the Kinsey family of course for not just having this incredible…’

Meghan, 42, wore a Carolina Herrera floral-embroidered wool cape worth £4,800, while Harry, 39, was in a smart suit with an open-necked white shirt.

Ms Robinson, who is a supporter of the collection, said: ‘Thank you Duke & Duchess of Sussex and @thearchewellorganization for supporting the @kinseycollection.’

In a second post showing a panel discussion, she added: ‘Great discussion last night supported by @thearchewellorganization and Duke & Duchess of Sussex.’

Harry and Meghan live in nearby Montecito in a £12million mansion with their children Prince Archie, four, and two-year-old Princess Lilibet.

It comes as Harry’s father King Charles III continues to undergo treatment for cancer – with Queen Camilla yesterday insisting he was ‘doing very well’.

And Harry’s sister-in-law the Princess of Wales remains out of the public eye as she continues to recover following her abdominal surgery in January.

The launch came on the same day that Harry made an appearance via videolink at the Diana Legacy Award event at the Science Museum in London. 

And earlier this week, former US president Donald Trump suggested Harry could be deported from America if he lied about his drug use on a visa application.

The Republican frontrunner told Nigel Farage that ‘appropriate action’ would be taken if the Duke concealed his past substance abuse on his immigration papers.

Also this week, Harry and Meghan were ‘downgraded’ on the official Buckingham Palace website.

Despite acrimoniously stepping down as senior working royals in January 2020, full and separate profiles of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had remained up alongside the rest of the Royal Family until yesterday morning.

On Mondaythose pictures and biographies briefly vanished. Within half an hour they were replaced with a significantly smaller, joint biography at the very bottom of the page – below the Duke of York.

The Sussexes’ entry now reads that they have stepped back as working royals, with just a couple of short paragraphs on each of them.

As for the Kinsey Exhibition, it aims to ‘celebrate the achievements and contributions of black Americans from before the formation of the United States to present times’.

Bernard and Shirley Kinsey are behind the collection, having spent five decades amassing one of the world’s biggest private collections of black art and artefacts. 

The items include a 1963 typed letter from human rights activist Malcolm X to author Alex Haley, and a handwritten bill of sale for an enslaved black man from 1832.
