Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
Today 40-year-old Meghan Markle and her 37-year-old husband Prince Harry flew on an official visit to New York. The couple were filmed near World Trade Center 1, a building that was erected on the site of the twin towers destroyed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack. This is the couple's first public appearance since the birth of their daughter Lilibet.

The Duchess of Sussex came out in dark clothes. She wore black flared trousers and a turtleneck and a navy blue coat. Stiletto heels to match the outfit complemented her look. Harry, dressed in a classic suit, walked next to his wife and held her hand.
The couple met with New York Governor Katie Hochul and Mayor Bill de Blasio.

On Saturday, Meghan and Harry will be attending the Global Citizen Live event in Central Park and will be broadcast worldwide. Their talk is expected to focus on the coronavirus vaccine they are actively advocating for.
It is not known whether the spouses of the children, two-year-old son Archie and three-month-old daughter Lilibet, took with them on the trip. They already have experience of an official tour with one child (the Dukes of Sussex traveled to South Africa with Archie when they were still performing royal duties), but not with two children.
