Why Meghan And Harry Are Planning To Take Their First Public Trip Since Moving To California

After stepping away from the royal family and royal duties, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moved to California. When appearing on "The Late, Late Show with James Corden," Harry said, "It was stepping back rather than stepping down. It was a really difficult environment, which I think a lot of people saw, so I did what any father or husband would do and thought, 'How do I get my family out of here?' But we never walked away, and as far as I'm concerned, whatever decisions are made on that side, I will never walk away," (via Associated Press News).

Since moving, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been busy with their children (son Archie and daughter Lilibet, who was born in June 2021) and with charity work. They started Archewell, volunteered with Project Angel Food, and partnered with José Andrés and World Central Kitchen in order to create community relief centers, as listed out by PureWow.

And now, they will be taking a public trip — the couple's first since moving to Montecito, California.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be involved with Global Citizen Live

The couple's upcoming trip, as aforementioned, is an important one. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be part of Global Citizen Live on Saturday, September 25, 2021 — a 24-hour event that is taking place at Central Park in New York City in order to unite the world to defend the planet and defeat poverty. Global Citizen's global campaign for the year, A Recovery Plan for the World, is made up of five objectives: ending the hunger crisis, resuming learning for all, protecting the planet, advancing equity for all, and ending COVID-19.

While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's work touches upon many areas of life, they have been very vocal about vaccines and ending the pandemic. Previously, they were co-chairs of Global Citizen's VAX LIVE event, and to celebrate Archie's second birthday, they showed support for Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance (via Global Citizen Live).

"What's most important right now is the health and wellbeing of everyone across the globe and finding solutions for the many issues that have presented themselves as a result of this pandemic," the couple wrote on Instagram back in March 2020. "As we all find the part we are to play in this global shift and changing of habits, we are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute. While you may not see us here, the work continues."
