Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are one booked and busy couple! Over a month after their first joint visit to New York City in late September, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently spent a some days in NYC, attending a few major events and dazzling on one of their first red carpets in quite a long time. The trip was very work-focused for the couple, with each spending time discussing their advocacy efforts and using their platforms to highlight critical issues. So, let’s dive into what the pair got up to in the Big Apple.
Prince Harry attended a RE:WIRE virtual summit discussing the issue of misinformation. The conversation was very personal for the Duke of Sussex, who witnessed the pain his mother endured at the hands of pervasive media outlets. He also discussed his fears that what his mother went through would also befall his wife.
Meghan, meanwhile, was holding her own at the NYT Dealbook Summit. She talked about her recent endeavor to back parental leave in the United States. The Duchess of Sussex even echoed Princess Diana’s sentiments about her advocacy work, seeing it more as humanitarian than political.
Finally, Meghan and Harry got the chance to get really dressed up for an evening at the Salute to Freedom Gala at the Intrepid Museum in NYC. The couple dazzled with their red carpet looks, and Meghan truly stole the show in a red Caroline Herrera gown. It was a busy few days for the couple, and you can take a look at some of the highlights with this slideshow of photos!
