Meghan Markle and Prince Harry deliver impassioned speech at Global Citizen Live

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made an impassioned speech on Saturday in their bid for global vaccine equity as they attended Global Citizen Live during their tour of New York City.

The couple joined forces to address the crowd, receiving a huge round of applause from the audience as they walked out on stage hand-in-hand.

"My wife and I believe that where you are born should not dictate your ability to survive. Especially when treatments exist to keep you safe," said Harry to the cheering crowds.

"Look at us all here, 60,000 strong in New York City," Harry began, asking: "Are we prepared to do what's necessary to end this pandemic?"

Meghan then greeted the crowds: "It is so good to be back here with all of you."

"Look, we know it feels like this pandemic has been going on forever. We get it, it’s a lot, and some people are just over it," Meghan shared.

"But if everyone’s over it, it is never going to be over. There is so much we can do today that can get us closer to ending this pandemic and that’s why we’re all here."
