For the first time since the birth of their second child, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made some joint public appearances in New York. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited a school in Harlem, visited the 9/11 Memorial, held a meeting at the United Nations and spoke at the Global Citizen Live concert.

Prince Harry and his wife took the stage at Global Citizen Live at the Great Lawn in Central Park and received a warm welcome from the crowd before speaking on vaccine equality.
“Every person on this planet has the basic right to receive this vaccine,” Meghan said (according to Harper’s Bazaar). “That’s the point. But it’s not. And while in this country and many others, you can go almost anywhere and get vaccinated, billions of people around the world do not. can’t. ”

These countries have the means, the capacity and the workers to go into manufacturing. All they are waiting for is for the intellectual property of the vaccine to be relinquished and for the vaccine technology to be transferred. “
The host of the show calls the Duke and Duchess “unbearable”
After the Sussexes made a big comeback in the public eye, Sky News Australia broadcaster Alan Jones took aim at the prince and former Suit star with harsh words.
“[Whenever] Meghan Markle and Prince Harry need to appear and speak, they should give us a fair warning so that we can put on the eye mask and put on the earplugs, ”Jones said on his TV show (according to the Daily Star ).
He continued, “These two are really unbearable. Their last – a trip to New York – for a bunch of charitable activities. One was to visit the United Nations, they had a meeting with the Assistant Secretary General. United Nations… Honestly, on what basis do these two non-active royals meet politicians or world leaders? Their next visit was to a primary school so Meghan could read her children’s book to the students Grade 2. I bet half of them wondered what they had done wrong to deserve this.
The show’s host concluded his comments by expressing outrage that Meghan and Harry spoke at the climate change event, but continue to fly on private jets, saying: “Then , to preach to us about climate change as Prince Harry was caught flying home on a private jet for a polo match last month.
Another Sussex critic also lambasted the couple after their trip
Jones isn’t the only person to publicly blow up the pair after their return to the limelight. Longtime Sussex critic Piers Morgan also slammed the Duke and Duchess for returning to their California mansion on a private jet hours after giving their speech. Morgan mocked the couple, calling them “the prince and princess of pollution” and “the most toxic royals in the world”.
In an article for the Daily Mail, he wrote: “As with everything in the ridiculous world of Meghan and Harry, they like to preach one thing and do the exact opposite.
