Meghan Markle will be making her first public appearance since the birth of daughter Lilibet as part of a 24-hour global TV show airing on Saturday.

Meghan and partner Prince Harry are set to join a team of celebrities in New York’s Central Park for the Global Citizen Live event streaming on the BBC.

The event organisers have called Meghan and Harry “two of the strongest voices on vaccine equity” as their appearance in the show aims to "continue their urgent work with world leaders in the pursuit of global vaccine equity to end the COVID-19 pandemic for everyone, everywhere"

The Duchess of Sussex hasn’t been seen at a public event since Lilibet was born on June 4, opting instead to make limited appearances in content such as her 40th birthday celebration video and the cover of TIME magazine alongside her husband last week.

Fans of the Sussexes will no doubt be pleased to see Meghan making a return to the public eye this weekend, just days after Melissa McCarthy shared how “sweet and genuine” Meghan was towards Harry when shooting for her birthday video.

The Duchess’ popularity also lead to an 83% spike in wide leg trouser sales after her appearance on the TIME magazine cover.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been outspoken about vaccine equity as Harry made an appearance at the 24th GQ Men Of The Year Awards 2021 earlier this month to promote vaccine sharing between nations.

Presenting the Heroes award to the team behind the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert and Professor Catherine Green, Harry said: "Until every community can access the vaccine and until every community is connected to trustworthy information about the vaccine, then we are all at risk,

"As people sit in the room with you tonight, more than a third of the global population has received at least one dose of the vaccine. That's more than five billion shots given around the world so far.

"It sounds like a major accomplishment, and in many ways it is, but there is a huge disparity between who can and cannot access the vaccine.

"We cannot move forward together unless we address this imbalance as one,"

To celebrate their son Archie’s birthday, the Royal couple began a fundraising effort to support Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, who co-lead the Covid-19 Vaccine Global Access Facility, COVAX, that aims to get vaccines across the globe to people in low income countries in need.
