The couple stepped out at One World Trade Centre, where they met with politicians ahead of Saturday’s Global Citizen Live event, a 24-hour broadcast that aims to raise funds and awareness for vaccine equity across the globe.

At the event, Meghan and Harry met with Governor Kathy Hochul, NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio, Chirlane McCray and Dante de Blasio. They also walked down to ground zero to view a wreath and visit the 9/11 museum.

Harry and Meghan have flown to New York to attend Saturday’s live event, alongside stars including Elton John, Lizzo, Jennifer Lopez and Billie Eilish.

Previously speaking about the important of vaccinations, the couple said the missions was ‘critical’ in a joint statement.

“Over the past year, our world has experienced pain, loss and struggle — together. Now we need to recover and heal — together,” the couple said. “We can’t leave anybody behind. We will all benefit, we will all be safer, when everyone, everywhere has equal access to the vaccine.”

They continued, “We must pursue equitable vaccine distribution and, in that, restore faith in our common humanity. The mission couldn’t be more critical or important.”
