Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Call For Vaccine Equity During Global Citizen Live
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan believe that inequitable vaccine distribution is a human rights crisis.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex gave a passionate joint speech in favor of global vaccine equity earlier today at the New York event for Global Citizen Live at the Great Lawn in Central Park.
The couple called for equal global vaccine distribution, imploring world leaders and pharmaceutical companies to treat access to the COVID-19 vaccine as “basic human rights.”
“Every single person on this planet has a fundamental right to get this vaccine. That’s the point. But that’s not happening.
And while in this country and many others you can go almost anywhere and get vaccinated, billions of people around the world cannot,” Duchess Meghan said.
“They said many countries are ready to produce vaccines at home, yet they aren’t allowed to, because ultra wealthy pharmaceutical companies are not sharing the recipes to make them.
These countries have the means the ability and the workers to start manufacturing. All they are waiting for is the vaccine intellectual property to be waived and for the vaccine technology to be transferred over,” he said.
“And finally in our conversations, these experts shared that how the vaccine is distributed, and who it’s distributed to, should be left to independent international organizations who know exactly where the doses are most needed.
Just think about the millions of vaccines that have been discarded this year. That’s like throwing away life vests, when those around you are drowning.”
The couple also shared a cute moment during the serious speech, with the crowd cheering as Harry referred to Meghan as “my wife.”
They exchanged a brief embrace before he continued, “My wife and I believe that where you’re born should not dictate your ability to survive.”
They also stood hand in hand for the rest of the speech.
This pandemic will not end unless we act collectively with an unprecedented commitment to our shared humanity.
The vaccine must be distributed to everyone, everywhere. We cannot rest or truly recover until there is fair distribution to every corner of the world,” Harry said at the May event.

In between their lovey-dovey display, the couple preached to millions watching the event across the world about vaccine equity.
Harry said: “Look at all of us here 60,000 strong together in New York City! Are we prepared to do what’s necessary to end this pandemic?”
His wife Meg added: “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 but if everyone’s over it, it will never 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.
