The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle paid a visit to the One World Trade Centre in New York today, Thursday.

Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, were joined by New York City’s mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor of New York State, Kathy Hochul, in the observatory located on floors 100-102 of the One World Trade Centre.

The couple are also to meet with Mr de Blasio’s wife, the first lady of New York, writer and activist Chirlane McCray, and their son Dante de Blasio.

Harry and Meghan were seen entering the building hand-in-hand as they waved to the waiting press.

Meghan wore an all-black outfit of trousers and a polo neck jumper under a black coat with her hair swept back into a bun with a middle parting.

She teamed her outfit with black heels and husband Harry wore a black suit with a white shirt and a black tie.

The pair were seen putting on black protective face masks before entering the building.

Their visit to the site of the original twin towers comes just two weeks after the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

While in New York, Harry and Meghan will be attending Global Citizen Live on Saturday, which is taking place in Central Park.

The event organisers have called Meghan and Harry “two of the strongest voices on vaccine equity” as their appearance in the show aims to "continue their urgent work with world leaders in the pursuit of global vaccine equity to end the COVID-19 pandemic for everyone, everywhere.”

Meghan hasn’t been seen at a public event since her and Harry’s daughter Lilibet was born on 4 June.

She appeared in a video to mark her 40th birthday and she and Harry appeared on the cover of TIME magazine last week.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been outspoken about vaccine equity as Harry made an appearance at the 24th GQ Men Of The Year Awards 2021 earlier this month to promote vaccine sharing between nations.

Presenting the Heroes award to the team behind the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert and Professor Catherine Green, Harry said: "Until every community can access the vaccine and until every community is connected to trustworthy information about the vaccine, then we are all at risk.

"As people sit in the room with you tonight, more than a third of the global population has received at least one dose of the vaccine. That's more than five billion shots given around the world so far.

"It sounds like a major accomplishment, and in many ways it is, but there is a huge disparity between who can and cannot access the vaccine.

"We cannot move forward together unless we address this imbalance as one."

To celebrate their son Archie’s birthday, the Royal couple began a fundraising effort to support Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, who co-lead the Covid-19 Vaccine Global Access Facility, COVAX, that aims to get vaccines across the globe to people in low income countries in need.
