The Duchess of Sussex has thanked supporters after winning an award for her podcast, just hours before the launch of her and husband Prince Harry's tell-all Netflix show.

Meghan, 41, issued a sweet message to fans after her podcast Archetypes picked up the top podcast honour at the People's Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Tuesday 6 December.

She shared a statement on her and Harry's Archewell website, which read: “Thank you to all the supporters and fans of Archetypes who voted for us for this special People’s Choice Award.

“I loved digging my hands into the process, sitting up late at night in bed, working on the writing and creative."

She continued: “And I loved digging deep into meaningful conversation with my diverse and inspiring guests, laughing and learning with them, and with each of you listening.

“It has been such a labor of love with an amazing team who were each instrumental in helping to bring this series to life.”

Archetypes won The Pop Podcast for 2022 award, beating the likes of Anything Goes With Emma Chamberlain, Why Won't You Date Me? With Nicole Byer and Armchair Expert With Dax Shepard.

Meghan's message came just hours after she and Harry, 38, received the Ripple of Hope Award at a gala by the Robert F Kennedy Human Rights (RFKHR) organisation on Tuesday night for their activism work in New York.

The accolade honours exemplary leaders across government, business, advocacy, and entertainment, and the pair were recognised for their racial justice and mental health work.

During the ceremony the couple announced a new collaboration between their foundation The Archewell Foundation and the RFKHR – the Archewell Foundation Award for Gender Equity in Student Film.

“Our hope with this award is to inspire a new generation of leadership in the arts, where diverse up and coming talent have a platform to have their voices heard and their stories told,” the couple said in a statement.

“The values of RFK Foundation and The Archewell Foundation are aligned in our shared belief of courage over fear, and love over hate. Together we know that a ripple of hope can turn into a wave of change.”

Harry and Meghan's recent statements and public appearance come as the release date for the pair's Netflix show looms closer.

The first three episodes of the six-part series will land on Netflix on 8 December, with the final three shows being available to watch on 15 December.

The royal family is bracing itself for bombshell revelations, with Harry speaking of a “hierarchy in the family”, a “dirty game”, and warning “we know the full truth” in a trailer for the show.
