Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got a bird’s-eye view of the New York skyline as they kicked off their trip to the city with a visit to the observatory at One World Trade Center on Thursday.
The royal couple is in town to attend Saturday’s Global Citizen Live event at Central Park to encourage equal access to COVID-19 vaccines. It was their first joint outing since the birth of their daughter Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor in June.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were accompanied by New York Governor Kathy Hochul, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, his wife, Chirlane McCray, and their son, Dante de Blasio.
The 37-year-old prince and Meghan, 40, also paid their respects at the nearby September 11 memorial and stopped by the adjoining museum.
The couple stepped down from royal duties in early 2020 and are living in California with their two children.
In May, they marked the second birthday of their son Archie by calling for donations to help provide COVID-19 vaccines to the world’s most vulnerable.
