It seems like accepting an award from Hillary Clinton is flying dangerously closing to mixing with politics?
How so? It's an award from a prestigious university that has named part of their program in an honor of a female leader. She's not an active politician nor is this affiliated with a campaign or political party in anyway... Senator Romney and various current MA politicians were at the Earthshot Awards on Friday as well.
Fair enough; I suppose since over here HRC is such a polarizing figure who is only known for her political career, it seems a little...off somehow, especially since it's unusual for the RF to accept awards. It's been said by many others that "The Royal Family gives awards, not accepts them" so maybe that's why this rubs me a bit wrong.
Still a fan of Sophie, though, but would prefer her not to accept awards in general, let alone from US politicians (current or former).
EDIT: I understand now that it is named after HRC and not given by HRC or her foundation. My discomfort with it is somewhat lessened.
I do hope this isn't the beginning of royals accepting awards though; that whole thing rubs me wrong but that is going to be a long, possibly off-topic explanation and I won't inflict that on anyone!
