Harry, Meghan visit New York City sites, including 9/11 memorial

New York: Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, got a hawk’s-eye view of New York City on Thursday with a visit to the rebuilt World Trade Centre’s signature tower.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, and their son, Dante de Blasio, posed for photos with Harry and Meghan at the 386-metre observatory at One World Trade Centre, where clouds partially obscured the panoramic view.

In answer to a question about how she was enjoying her trip to New York, Meghan responded, “It’s wonderful to be back, thank you.” Harry, asked the same question, said, “It’s wonderful, thank you.”

The royals did not make further remarks.

After enjoying the view from the 102nd floor, they made their way back down and outside.

Hochul chatted with Meghan while de Blasio and Harry spoke before posing for photos in front of the building, which stands near where the centre’s former twin towers were destroyed by terrorists on September 11, 2001.

Harry and Meghan then visited the neighbouring September 11 memorial plaza.

The couple looked out over a reflecting pool where one of the towers stood and then visited the September 11 museum.

The duke and duchess are in New York for a Global Citizen Live event to call for vaccine equity.
