Why are Meghan and Harry in New York?

For many months, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been warring with the royal family. Now they're in New York City to talk vaccine equity, and bask in their own star power. Daily BeastHarry and Meghan Reinvent Themselves in—Where Else?—New York

Harry carried the briefcase while in New York City with his wife, Meghan.

When Prince Harry attended meetings in New York City Thursday with his wife, Duchess Meghan, eagle-eyed observers noticed a very sweet detail on his briefcase.

Harry, 37, carried a briefcase monogrammed with the words "Archie's Papa," a reference to the 2-year-old son, Archie, he shares with Meghan.

The Sussexes are also the new parents of a daughter, Lilibet, nicknamed Lili, who was born in June.

They spent Friday at a public school in Harlem, where Meghan read her children's book "The Bench," to students.

On Saturday, Harry and Meghan are scheduled to promote COVID-19 vaccine equity again when they take part in Global Citizen Live, an annual concert event held on the Great Lawn in Central Park.

Meghan Markle Apparently Confused TF Out of an Eavesdropper by Talking a Lot on Double Date in NYC

Cosmopolitan 25 September, 2021 - 12:41pm

The "spy" also claimed that "Harry got bored and started looking at his phone." 🙄

Like most people who visit cities where they have friends, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle took some time out to get dinner and catch up with a few of those friends during their recent trip to New York City. Unlike most people who get dinner with old friends/generally try to live their lives, Harry and Meghan's nice night out was fully eavesdropped and scrutinized. 🙄

According to a report from Page Six, the Sussexes hung out with another couple (described as a "blonde and a tall guy," who the outlet noted were believed to be Meghan's longtime friend, Misha Nonoo, who is blonde, and her husband, Mikey Hess, who, at 6'1, qualifies as a "tall guy") at the Bemelmans Bar at the Carlyle hotel on Wednesday night. Apparently, a "spy who sat opposite the pair" spilled all kinds of tea/seeming conjecture about the date—primarily that Meghan did "most of the talking" during the dinner.

The source couldn't emphasize enough how much Meghan talked during the double date, and apparently even asked their own dinner companion, "Why is she talking so much?" (No word on what insights the spy's dinner companion had into Meghan's personal conversational habits/psyche, tragically.)

Of course, no one outside of the actual conversation could answer the question of why Meghan was (reportedly) talking so much, but off the top of my head, I'd guess some combination of excitement to catch up with a close friend and share stories about big life news (like the recent birth of her daughter, Lilibet Diana) and/or excitement about some professional endeavor or passion project (of which the Sussexes notably have many).

Those are only guesses, obvi, but since the Page Six "spy" also reported that, "[Meghan] was excited about something" and "she talked with her hands a lot," they don't seem like terrible guesses.

The source also reported back on Harry's behavior during the double date, saying that he had "very few responses" during the conversation and—GASP—looked at his phone off and on during the dinner.

"Harry got bored and started looking at his phone," the source/spy said. "Then he got back in the conversation, and then he lost it again and went back to his phone."

Maybe Harry was checking out and taking a brain break/engaging in a little boredom scrolling (if that's a crime, I don't personally know any smartphone user who isn't guilty), but there are obviously lots of boredom-free reasons he could have been looking at his phone.

And that's just off the top of my head.

tl;dr: Meghan and Harry had dinner with another couple. Meghan said words. Harry looked at his phone for unknown reasons. #news

CBS New York 24 September, 2021 - 02:16pm

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spent part of their second day in New York City visiting an elementary school in Harlem.

The couple is here for a charity event, to meet with global leaders and push for vaccine equity, CBS2’s Natalie Duddridge reported Friday.

It’s day two of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s visit to NYC. They’re in town for @GlobalFestival to push vaccine equity. First they’re making a couple stops along the way. This morning they visited PS 123 in East Harlem to read aloud to the students @CBSNewYork pic.twitter.com/YDa28HxXIK

Harry and Meghan met with 2nd graders at PS 123 on West 141st Street. Harry sat with the kids while Meghan read from her book, “The Bench.”

“I wrote this book originally as a poem for my husband when we just had our little boy,” Markle told the class. “I haven’t ever read it to any other kids besides our own kids. So I’m really excited now I get to read it to you.”

The couple joined New York City Schools Chancellor Meisha Porter to highlight the Community Schools Initiative, which ensures children are emotionally and socially equipped to learn.

“When I was a little girl, sometimes you couldn’t see books and see people that look like yourself,” Markle said. “I wanted to make sure that everyone felt like they were included.”

No Q&A with the couple, but when Harry & Meghan were asked how their new baby girl Lillibet and son Archie are doing, Meghan responded “they’re so good” @CBSNewYork pic.twitter.com/wDUmoD55bS

It was the couple’s first major public appearance since the birth of their daughter, Lillibet, in June. Their son, Archie, is now 2 years old.

The kids stayed behind in California as Harry and Meghan attended meetings at the United Nations to discuss vaccine equity.

On Thursday, they toured the World Trade Center site, 9/11 Memorial and observatory with Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Kathy Hochul.

The main focus of their visit is to attend Global Citizen, a charity music festival, Saturday in Central Park.

The stage is being set for the concert that’s part of a worldwide, 24-hour event with a focus on climate change, ending hunger and fighting for global access to COVID vaccines.

Despite giving up their royal titles, Meghan and Harry said they’re continuing to use their platform for global change and to inspire the next generation.
