The event organisers call them "two of the strongest voices on vaccine equity".Both Harry and Meghan have spoken out about vaccine equity in the past and in May, Harry made an appearance at Vax Live - a concert in California to promote the sharing of vaccines.

The couple has also previously written an open letter to the chief executives of pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca urging them to redouble their support for the UN-sponsored Covax vaccine equity programme.Meghan was last in New York in early September 2019, when she travelled to the city to support her friend Serena Williams in the US Open at Flushing Meadow.

Harry's last trip there was in 2013 when he toured areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy. The trip to New York comes after the couple was named in TIME magazine's 100 most influential people in 2021 last week.The magazine praised the pair for having "compassion for the people they don't know", and added: "They don't just opine. They run towards the struggle."

Harry and Meghan, who said they are "humbled" to be on the list, appeared in the magazine alongside a short profile of them by chef José Andrés, a founder of the World Central Kitchen charity. He told TIME : "Springing into action is not the easy choice for a young duke and duchess who have been blessed through birth and talent, and burned by fame. It would be much safer to enjoy their good fortune and stay silent.

"That’s not what Harry and Meghan do, or who they are. They turn compassion into boots on the ground through their Archewell Foundation. They give voice to the voiceless through media production."Hand in hand with nonprofit partners, they take risks to help communities in need—offering mental-health support to Black women and girls in the U.S., and feeding those affected by natural disasters in India and the Caribbean."
