Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to join New York Mayor Bill De Blasio at observatory as they begin US 'adventure'

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry will join New York Mayor Bill De Blasio at an observatory today as they begin their US "adventure."

The Duke and Duchess will visit the One World Observatory in the city with the politician during their first public outing since baby Lilibet was born.

The couple will head to the city before going onto broadcast live from Central Park for a Global Citizen Live event to promote the Covid vaccine on Saturday.

The couple will "continue their urgent work with world leaders in the pursuit of global vaccine equity to end the Covid-19 pandemic for everyone, everywhere", Global Citizen's website states.

The New York event will be the first time Meghan will appear at a public event since giving birth to Lilibet in June.

Pal of the couple Omid Scobie revealed overnight: "Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan will begin their New York adventure tomorrow morning, September 23, when they join NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and Kathy Hochul for an 8am visit to the One World NYC Observatory."

The mum-of-two had previously released a pre-recorded video to celebrate her 40th birthday. 

Both she and Prince Harry had previously been on parental leave after the birth of their daughter Lilibet – named in honour of the Queen – with tomorrow's trip suggesting they are now ready to begin their era of "visibility".

Scobie previously said the "thriving" couple are "really excited" about the busy schedule ahead following the end of their parental leave.

Scobie, the preferred reporter of the Sussexes – who co-authored their biography Finding Freedom – confirmed the pair will return to public life after "keeping toxicity away".

"They're a couple who do very well in those moments of human interaction. They need to be on the ground," Scobie told PEOPLE.

"They say that the proof is in the pudding, and what we are about to see is that pudding."

Meghan, 40, and Harry, 37, were campaign chairs of Vax Live, whose aims were to "inspire vaccine confidence worldwide and help get the Covid-19 vaccines to everyone".

At the event's pre-recorded show in May, the Duke of Sussex was greeted with a standing ovation as he walked on stage at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

His five-minute speech encouraged people to "look beyond ourselves with empathy and compassion for those we know".

He added: "We need to lift up all of humanity and make sure that no person or community is left behind."


The couple – who have been avid campaigners for providing Covid vaccines worldwide – released a statement earlier this year.

They said: "Over the past year, our world has experienced pain, loss and struggle – together.

"Now we need to recover and heal – together. We can't leave anyone behind.

"We will all benefit, we will all be safer, when everyone everywhere has equal access to the vaccine.

"We must pursue equitable vaccine distribution, and in that, restore faith in our common humanity. This mission couldn't be more critical or important."
