"One of my favorite nights of the year. Grateful to be around people helping others and giving hope, carrying on the legacy of RFK," Hilaria captioned her carousel of red carpet moments with Alec from the night before. "Meghan and Harry were honored and they spoke about mental health, humanity, and being open…so we know that we aren’t alone."

Applauding Meghan's "perseverance through bullying," Hilaria said the royal has given her "courage to persevere through the harassment I have experienced."

"We both have had our dark and suicidal thoughts from being picked apart, all the while, just wanting to be human," shared Hilaria, who explained Meghan's "intention" of sharing her story to help others in fact helped her, "even though our circumstances and particular struggles are different."

Likening herself to Meghan, Hilaria continued, "I see our common humanity. I hope when I open up about my struggles, this helps some of you too, as it is my intention."

The 38-year-old then thanked those who have shown her "kindness and positivity," especially when there is so "much negativity in the world."

"There are also amazing people, showing that we are all in this together," concluded Hilaria.
