The Duchess of Sussex made her first television appearance after the controversial interview she gave to presenter and friend Oprah Winfrey last March. Meghan Markle, already in an advanced state of pregnancy, appeared on video, in a previously recorded message about the online charity concert Vax Live, to talk about equity in a pandemic time.
In the video, recorded in the gardens of her home, in Montecito, USA, the Duchess begins by stating that “women, especially black women, saw a generation of economic gains annihilated” due to the health crisis and, both she and her husband , call for a recovery that prioritizes “the health, safety and success of all, particularly women who have been disproportionately affected” by the pandemic. Meghan, who in the recording wears a Carolina Herrera dress worth more than 2 thousand euros, also notes that, since the beginning of the health crisis, about 5.5 million women have lost their jobs in the USA, with 47 million worldwide on the way to extreme poverty.
But it was not only Meghan Markle who participated in the Vax Live concert, broadcast last Saturday, the 8th. Prince Harry also took the stage, in Los Angeles, to warn about the “politicization” of science, being received by a round of applause and a standing ovation the moment it appeared in public. “I think the saddest and most worrying thing for me and my wife… is the politicization of science. When we talk about life and death, which we are talking about now, vaccines cannot be politicized. We must ensure that everyone around the world has equal access to the vaccine, otherwise none of this will work. ”
