Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are taking a bite out of the Big Apple! The couple kicked off their cross-country trip to New York City on Thursday with a visit to One World Observatory at the World Trade Center with Mayor Bill de Blasio, the mayor’s wife Chirlane McCray, their son Dante de Blasio and Governor Kathy Hochel.
They both dressed in black for the occasion: Meghan sported a black turtleneck with matches trousers under a jacket with her hair pulled back into her signature low bun, while Harry sported a classic suit and tie. While posing for a group photo, Meghan was asked about her return to New York. “It’s wonderful to be back, thank you,” she replied.
Meghan, 40, and Prince Harry, 37, announced earlier this week that they were heading to New York for Saturday’s Global Citizen Live from Central Park “to continue their urgent work with world leaders in the pursuit of global vaccine equity to end the COVID-19 pandemic for everyone, everywhere,” according to Global Citizen. The duo previously served as Campaign Chairs of Global Citizen’s VAX Live: The Concert to Reunite the World, where Prince Harry gave an impassioned speech about the importance of vaccine equity.
New York City is a special place for Meghan. It’s where she reunited with friends — including Serena Williams, Amal Clooney, Gayle King and Jessica Mulroney — in February 2019 for a baby shower ahead of the birth of son Archie.
Meghan also returned to the Big Apple in September 2019 to support Williams in the US Open final.
