Prince Harry with Meghan Markle, paid a visit to the United Nations headquarters in NYC on early Saturday, where they met with U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed as part of the 193-member Global Body’s Yearly Assembly of Heads.
As soon as Harry and Meghan’s meeting was over with the United Nations office, Markle told the media, “It was really a wonderful visit.”
After the Harry and Meghan meeting, according to the UN, Mohammed praised the Duke as well as Duchess of Sussex’s dedication and efforts on the Seventeen Sustainable Developmental Goals. The United Nations developed the objectives in 2015 to address challenges like famine and alleviating poverty, sexual equality, as well as climate change mitigation.
The UN stated in an announcement that the Deputy Secretary-General “asserted appreciation for common goals around environmental change, women’s economic prosperity, youth participation, and particularly mental wellness.”
The pair is in NYC to attend the Global Citizen Live event in Central Park later on Saturday, which seeks to encourage wealthy countries to donate 1-billion shots of COVID-19 vaccinations to the world’s poorest nations.
The 37-year-old Prince and Meghan, 40, made a trip to the 9/11 World Trade Center monument in New York City later on Thursday. Governor of New York Kathy Hochul, as well as NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, welcomed them.
The year before, the pair left their sovereign responsibilities to make a fresh start in California, where they reside alongside their 2 kids, Archie, who’s now 2 years old, and Lilibet, who came into this world in June.
They’ve created their Archewell Institute and signed hefty Television shows as well as podcast production partnerships. The other week, the pair was featured on the front of Time magazine’s annual edition, recognizing the planet’s 100 most significant personalities.
As soon as Harry and Meghan’s meeting finished, we got to know the contents of the discussion on Saturday. Mohammed also “complimented the Archewell Foundation’s work in encouraging vaccination equity throughout the globe.”
During this last week, global leaders gathered with the United Nations having the goal of strengthening measures to combat both environmental issues, as well as COVID-19. Rather than going to New York for the yearly high-level United Nations General Assembly like last year, officials submitted videotaped statements.
