Highlights From Global Citizen Live – The Meghan Markle and Prince Harry You Need to See
Last Saturday had everyone’s social media news feeds filled with highlights from the Global Citizen Live event across the world. We bet you’ve already come across a myriad of riveting performances by top superstars like Coldplay, Stevie Wonder, and Billie Eilish, but did you come across the passionate speech delivered by our most beloved ex-royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle?
But First, What’s the Global Citizen Live?
Starting on September 25th, the Global Citizen Live event was a 24-hour global awareness session to defend planet Earth, tackle vaccine inequity, and eradicate poverty. Celebrities and artists from 6 continents across the world joined hands to speak up (the best way they knew how to), for the climate problem and poverty, and to create change.
Global Citizen Live this year raised $1.1 billion across the world in financial commitments aimed at attending to the hunger and poverty crisis in the Horn of Africa, tackling the climate change crisis, and supporting the fight for vaccine equity.
Music Isn’t All We Got
With the crowd attentive and energetic right from the moment they spotted the Duke and Duchess awaiting their turn in the wings, it was obvious that what the couple had to say meant a lot to the public in Central Park. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s prime concern was calling attention to vaccine inequity. The couple made use of the stage granted to them by pleading with pharmaceutical multinationals to share the “recipe” for the vaccines, as Prince Harry called it.
He added that what’s needed most right now is a vaccinated world. While states across the globe are ready to commence vaccine production, companies are unwilling to share what it takes to make an item that could potentially resume stability in the world in a matter of months.
The Sussexes’ address was but six minutes long – but, they held their audience in their grasp for every second of those six minutes. One tiny occurrence, that showed just how attentive the audience was, happened when Prince Harry referred to Meghan saying ‘my wife’, and the crowd instantly went crazy screaming.
