Prince Harry will be one of 15 commissioners leading a study of misinformation at the Aspen Institute’s new Commission on Information Disorder, the institute announced Wednesday — something the Duke of Sussex and wife Meghan Markle contend they’ve faced personally with the British media.
The Aspen Institute’s six-month commission will study and deliver recommendations on how to combat the misinformation crisis.
Harry will be one of three philanthropic leaders of the commission, along with Quadrivium co-founder Kathryn Murdoch and Skoll Foundation incoming president Marla Blow.
The commission will be led by journalist Katie Couric, Color of Change president Rashad Robinson and former Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency director Chris Krebs, and other commissioners include Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford, former Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) and national security leader Sue Gordon.
The announcement comes weeks after a wide-ranging interview with Oprah Winfrey on CBS in which Harry and Markle said the media had spread a false narrative about her and Kate Middleton and discussed the debilitating effects of the broader attacks against her on her mental health.
