Britain’s Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, met Saturday with a top U.N. official amid the world body’s biggest gathering of the year.
The royals came to U.N. headquarters to speak with Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed. All three were due to appear later Saturday at the Global Citizen citizen concert in New York’s Central Park.
“It was a lovely meeting,” Meghan said as the couple left the U.N. headquarters.
The U.N. said Mohamed commended the couple’s efforts to promote vaccine equity worldwide and hailed priorities they and the U.N. share, including climate, women’s economic empowerment, youth engagement and mental health.
Meghan and Harry are set to press for vaccine equity during the star-studded, 24-hour concert. It features performances staged in locations from New York to Paris to Lagos, Nigeria, and Seoul, South Korea.
