- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry spoke during a live concert in front of 60,000 people.
- The crowds went wild when Prince Harry said, "my wife."
- In other royal news, Meghan Markle is one of the world's most famous faces—this is her journey from child campaigner to Duchess of Sussex
It's only been days since Meghan Markle's adorable tribute to her wedding day during an NYC outing and according to these photos, she and Prince Harry are still like newlyweds!
Meghan stunned in a white Valentino mini dress when the royal couple attended the Global Citizen Live concert in New York on Saturday, September 25, 2021.
One Twitter user called them, "a power couple. This entire trip Meghan has slayed every outfit of hers. There’s not a day that goes by where Harry isn’t admiring his wife."
Another commented, "That Harry and Meghan kinda love."
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual music festival, which is held in Central Park. Although the event predominantly aims to push for greater action to combat climate change, they were in attendance to discuss a cause very close to their hearts—vaccine equity.
Although they left their two children at home for this particular trip, fans noticed that Prince Harry was paying tribute to Archie with an adorable outfit choice during one of their first public engagements.
The philanthropic couple joined forces with Global Citizen, using their clout to encourage vaccine distribution to the countries that need it most. The purpose of the campaign is to encourage the planet's wealthiest countries to share one billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines with the countries that are struggling the most as the pandemic rages on.
As the couple took to the stage, the crowd went wild. Prince Harry said, "Look at us all here, 60,000 strong in New York City. Are we prepared to do what's necessary to end this pandemic?"
Meghan added her own greeting to the crowds saying, "It is so good to be back here with all of you."
"Look, we know it feels like this pandemic has been going on forever. We get it, it’s a lot, and some people are just over it." She then added, "But if everyone’s over it, it is never going to be over. There is so much we can do today that can get us closer to ending this pandemic and that’s why we’re all here."
The Duchess said, "We're able to be here tonight because the most brilliant scientists, researchers, frontline workers, and selfless public health leaders [that] have risked their lives to protect our global community."
"They are our humanitarian heroes," she said to the cheering crowds.
Harry then said, "Since this pandemic began we've been talking to experts about how we can do our part. This week we sat with independent global health leaders to further understand how we get closer to vaccine equity and ending this crisis."
"But we are battling more than a virus," he added. "This is a battle of misinformation, bureaucracy, lack of transparency, and lack of access. And above all, a human rights crisis."
The couple said that experts had told them in the previous week that many developing countries actually, "have the means and ability and workers to start manufacturing," desperately needed vaccines. They explained, however, that they're still waiting for,"the vaccine intellectual property to be waived, and for technology to be transferred over."
Prince Harry added, "And many of these vaccines are publicly funded, they are your vaccines, you paid for them. Where does it leave us?"
The Duke concluded, "My wife and I believe that where you are born should not dictate your ability to survive. Especially when treatments exist to keep you safe."
In light of all of their hard work to make the world a better place, they appeared on the cover of Time magazine after making its 2021 list of the 100 most influential people. However, royal fans were confused by one strange detail of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new photos on the cover and honestly—we can't unsee it!
