Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry are joining forces with the Global Citizen project.
The organization is behind the upcoming event Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The concert aims to strengthen the public's confidence in coronavirus vaccines, and Harry and Meghan are among the star-studded names behind the show.
Prince Harry and Meghan want fair distribution of vaccines
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are listed as the "campaign chairs" and will be seen at Vax Live alongside megastars like Selena Gomez as host. You can also look forward to appearances by stars like Jennifer Lopez, Sean Penn, and Ben Affleck as well as President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
The campaign is not only intended to increase confidence in vaccines but also to raise awareness for getting vaccine access to less affluent countries. Global Citizen writes, "We are calling on world leaders to step up to make sure vaccines are accessible for all so we can end the pandemic for everyone, everywhere."
Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry are expected to deliver an important message during the event. Of the event, they also wrote on their Archewell website, "We must pursue equitable vaccine distribution, and in that, restore faith in our common humanity. This mission couldn't be more critical or important."
After Prince Harry's time in the UK for Prince Philip's funeral, he is now back in the US. With Duchess Meghan, he'll take part in the Vax Live event, where there will even be an audience on site. You can watch the show live on May 8 on ABC, CBS, and YouTube.
