In the issue, José Andrés, a chef who founded a nonprofit that provides meals to those in need in the wake of natural disasters, described Harry and Meghan as having “compassion for the people they don’t know,” and said they “don’t just opine — they run toward the struggle.”
Andrés praised the couple for the way they “take risks to help communities in need,” by “offering mental health support to Black women and girls in the U.S., and feeding those affected by natural disasters in India and the Caribbean.”
When the Sussexes gave their interview to Oprah earlier this year, they were met with praise from across the globe for being open and candid about their struggles with mental health and, since then, the prince released a documentary series on mental well-being and the impact of therapy on his life.
“Springing into action is not the easy choice for a young duke and duchess who have been blessed through birth and talent, and burned by fame,” Andrés also wrote. “It would be much safer to enjoy their good fortune and stay silent.”
