Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, are continuing their long weekend in New York with the main event. The Duke and Duchess are participating in Global Citizen Live, a charity concert promoting global, equal access to the Covid vaccine. The couple made their appearance in Central Park, speaking to the audience about vaccine equity.

For the concert, Meghan wore a white, embellished Valentino shift dress, featuring flower appliqués. She paired the look with black, pointed toe heels and a loose, low ponytail.

"It is so good to be back here with all of you. Look, we know that it feels like this pandemic has been going on forever," Meghan said, per ET. "It is a lot and some people are just over it…There is so much that we can do today, now, that can get us closer to end the pandemic."

The mission of the Global Citizen concert is, according to the website, to call "on G7 countries (the world’s wealthiest nations) and the European Union to immediately share at least 1 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses with those most in need and support calls for a waiver on COVID-19 vaccine intellectual property rights."

Other celebrities also participating in Global Citizen Live include Andrea Bocelli, Billie Eilish, BTS, Camila Cabello, Coldplay, Cyndi Lauper, Demi Lovato, Doja Cat, Duran Duran, Ed Sheeran, Elton John, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lopez, Kylie Minogue, Lizzo, Lorde, Metallica, Ricky Martin, and Shawn Mendes.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex previously partnered with Global Citizen, co-chairing their VAX LIVE event in May. Meghan, however, was not able to attend that event in person, as she was still pregnant with the couple's daughter, Lilibet. This New York visit, in fact, marks Meghan's first official trip since she gave birth.

The royal couple has been taking advantage of their time in the city. On Thursday morning, the Duke and Duchess visited the One World Trade Center observatory and met with a few New York government officials. New York Governor Kathy Hochul, NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio, and De Blasio's wife and son, Chirlane McCray and Dante de Blasio all joined the couple on their outing. Yesterday, the pair ventured to elementary school P.S. 123 Mahalia Jackson in Harlem, where Meghan read her book, The Bench, to a class of second graders.
