Sep 25 2021, 7:08 pm EDTPrince Harry and Duchess Meghan believe that inequitable vaccine distribution is a human rights crisis.The Duke and Duchess of Sussex gave a passionate joint speech in favor of global vaccine equity earlier today at the New York event for Global Citizen Live at the Great Lawn in Central Park. The couple called for equal global vaccine distribution, imploring world leaders and pharmaceutical companies to treat access to the COVID-19 vaccine as"basic human rights."
For the televised event, Duchess Meghan wore an elegant white shift dress by Valentino, embellished with floral designs at the collars, sleeves, and hem, with black heels and minimal jewelry. Prince Harry opted for a white button-up shirt with the collar worn open under a tailored black suit.

And while in this country and many others you can go almost anywhere and get vaccinated, billions of people around the world cannot," Duchess Meghan said. headtopics.com
Prince Harry also shared a summary of the Duke and Duchess' discussions regarding vaccine distribution with world health experts over the past year. The couple also met with world leaders duringmeetingsin NYC these past few days."They said many countries are ready to produce vaccines at home, yet they aren't allowed to, because ultra wealthy pharmaceutical companies are not sharing the recipes to make them. These countries have the means the ability and the workers to start manufacturing. All they are waiting for is the vaccine intellectual property to be waived and for the vaccine technology to be transferred over," he said.
Duchess Meghan continued,"And finally in our conversations, these experts shared that how the vaccine is distributed, and who it's distributed to, should be left to independent international organizations who know exactly where the doses are most needed. Just think about the millions of vaccines that have been discarded this year. That's like throwing away life vests, when those around you are drowning."
The couple also shared a cute moment during the serious speech, with the crowd cheering as Harry referred to Meghan as"my wife." They exchanged a brief embrace before he continued,"My wife and I believe that where you’re born should not dictate your ability to survive." They also stood hand in hand for the rest of the speech.

scobie Who ate all the pies scobie scobie Powerful couple. scobie Harry and Meghan are absolutely loved in the US. We know the U.K. hates them We don’t care what you all do across the pond after all, you have a whole monarchy to hold your attention daily. The brand Harry &Meg are building will never appeal to colonialism or a monarchy.
🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮 scobie 👇 Syringe Pharmaceutical companies sharing the Covid-19 recipe free of charge would not solve the world’s vaccine equity issues, experts claim, despite what the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may believe scobie scobie FYI.. Nobody was there to see Haz and Meg. They were there to see actual celebrities like J Lo and Billie Eilish.
scobie As they take private jets everywhere. 😂😂😂 I thought they were trying to fight against climate change as well. scobie Meghan would be more popular if she was just a touch like Diana in showing the world her love for her own children? Sadly she is nothing like Diana as we all admired (and believed) her mothering love she showed for her own kids and then passed that love on to other children ❤️
scobie Let’s not forget AstraZeneca who have donated vaccine on a non profit basis to countries in the developing world!
Go inside the famed New York hotel where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly stayingHarry and Meghan will appear at the Global Citizen Live event on Saturday in Central Park and will reportedly be staying at The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel. Who cares
scobie scobie scobie This is rich for them to push this topic when they refuse to come out and inform public if they have vaccinated yet or not🤔🤔 and going around NY hugging those children is wreckless. If that was my child id be absolutely furious that they endangered all those children!!! scobie and then the lovely eco warriers flew back home on another private jet because we have to do as they say not as they do.....
The haters are going to have to accept that Harry and Meghan are a philanthropic powerhouse. The royal family could have had that charisma, but they were petty and jealous and threw them away. Oh, if you don’t like Harry and Meghan, then just don’t read about them. They are jokes. My vaccine was free from CVS so today I donated $10 so that someone somewhere in the world can get two doses on me you can help too just go to and I believe you can donate between $5 and 1 million dollars.
Pls can Prince Harry and Meghan have their own country so I can move there… They are my very own royal that I admire so much… I am so done with old colonials🤣🤣🤣 scobie Only done for their netflix deal. No more, no less. scobie Who are they to call for anything? This whole trip was a stunt for footage for Netflix. That’s why MM was wearing inappropriate clothing - hiding the mic pac & wires. Pathetic.

Wouldnt it be prudent to know what is in vaccines. Talk with Africa and India about what happened to their precious little girls after vaccination... scobie Her stylist hates her 🤣 scobie Vomit This magazine still propping up these two grifters and trying to make them a thing? Good luck. scobie Sad tossers
