Meghan Markle gave a special nod to her big day when she stepped out with her husband Prince Harry during an official visit to NYC. The royal couple visited One World Observatory at the World Trade Center as a part of their trip.


Meghan and Prince Harry kicked off their cross-country trip to NYC with the visit, alongside Mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Kathy Hochul. The trip comes only days after it was revealed that Meghan and Harry will bring Lilibet to the UK to meet Queen for Christmas.

Meghan looked spectacular in an all-black outfit which let her incredible earrings do all the talking. The white gold and diamond Cartier earrings were worn by the Duchess at her and Prince Harry's nuptials at Windsor Castle in May, 2018.

The simple studs accented Meghan Markle’s wedding dress and have become a staple of her jewelry box. Understated elegance, with regards to ear adornments, is something she has in common with her sister-in-law the Duchess of Cambridge. Kate Middleton's pearl earrings are another example of how to add a little glamour to your look without going OTT.

Simple as the Duchess' studs are, they cost a jaw-dropping $16,700 (£12,200). Luckily for fans of the style, Amazon is selling a very similar pair in cubic zirconia for only $27 (£19.99).

Look like a real Duchess in this stunning pair of earrings which offer elegance at a price you can afford. 

The trip was announced only days before they left and is in order to attend Global Citizen Live from Central Park, which is on Saturday, September 25, 2021. The event aims to bring attention to the issue of vaccine equity.

Global Citizen says that the royal couple is attending to, "continue their urgent work with world leaders in the pursuit of global vaccine equity to end the COVID-19 pandemic for everyone, everywhere."

Previously, in an open letter for Global Citizen, penned by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, to highlight COVID-19 vaccine inequality they said, "The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated health, social, and economic inequality globally." 

"The global vaccine rollout thus far further deepens these disparities, with the poorest and most marginalized populations most adversely impacted."

Their dedication to helping those in need was also showcased on their son Archie's second birthday when they used their Archwell Foundation to lead a global fundraising effort supporting Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. This initiative raised a remarkable $3.5M.

The couple also served as Campaign Chairs of Global Citizen's VAX Live: The Concert to Reunite the World, which saw the Prince make a rousing speech about the importance of vaccine equity.

"The virus does not respect borders, and access to the vaccine cannot be determined by geography," he said live on stage. "It must be accepted as a basic right for all and that is our starting point."
