Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reappeared this Monday, July 18 in New York to participate in the UN General Assembly
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are facing one of their most important days since they ceased to be senior members of the British royal family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex regained their notoriety on Monday July 18 and traveled to New York to attend as guests at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly which is celebrated this afternoon in the city.
Holding hands and smiling, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry arrived at UN headquarters between a great expectation, since it is one of the most important appointments of the wedding since they left London. Moreover, it comes at a difficult time for them, after details of the book ‘Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War Between All the Windsors’ were released.
However, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry wanted to get out of all the controversies to participate in a summit which is celebrated to remember the legacy of Nelson Mandela on the International Day with which he is honored. In it, the grandson of Elizabeth II took to the podium to deliver a long-awaited speech with which he not only paid tribute to the former president of South Africa, but also brought out his side. the most vindictive.
“I have spent time with many members of Nelson Mandela’s family and I speak to them and to you with respect. He was a man with the weight of the world on his shoulders. A man who endured the worst of humanity. A man who lost 27 years of his life, to enjoy it with his children, from which he will never recover, 27 years old. Even so, in all the photos, he comes out radiant because he was able to see the good in the world. Not because he was blind to injustices, he lived through them, but because he knew we could overcome them,” the Duke of Sussex began his speech.
And he continued: “From the horrific war in Ukraine to the rollback of constitutional rights in the United States, we are witnessing a global assault on democracy and freedom, the two great causes in the life of Nelson Mandela”.
With a serious face, Prince Harry delivered his most important speech and moved since leaving London under the watchful eye of Meghan Markle, to whom he dedicated a few precious words: “Since I visited Africa for the first time at the age of 13, I ‘ve always found hope on the mainland. In fact, for most of my life has been my lifeline, a place where I’ve found peace and healed over and over again, that’s where I find myself. felt closest to my mother, that’s where I found comfort when she died, And that’s when I knew my wife was actually my soul mate.”.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry participated in this summit at the express request of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, who took it upon themselves to invite them. It was also the first public appearance of the couple since their long-awaited return to the UK to be present at the Platinum Jubilee of Elizabeth II.
