Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to make their first public appearance since the Platinum Jubilee, and it involves a very exciting trip to New York.

Last month the Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited the UK to mark the Queen's 70th year on the throne, but since returning to their home in the US they have kept a relatively low profile – as they have done in the years following their departure from life as senior working royals.

But next week the duo will travel from California to New York where Prince Harry is giving a keynote speech to the United Nations. During his speech, which will take place during the UN's General Assembly on 18 July, the 37-year-old royal is expected to focus on one of his biggest passions, climate change, as well as world hunger.

It's not the first time that the royal has attended the event though – as he and Meghan both appeared at the UN General Assembly in September 2021, although they did not give a speech – nor is it the first time that Harry has spoken out about charitable causes. Just last year the Duke and Duchess gave a poignant speech at the Global Citizen Festival (which focussed on vaccine inequality) in New York.

"There's so much we can do today that can get us closer to ending this pandemic, and that's why we're all here," Meghan said as she addressed the crowd. "We're able to be here tonight because the most brilliant scientists, researchers, frontline workers and selfless public health leaders have risked their lives to protect our global community. They are our humanitarian heroes."

Chiming into the conversation, Harry added: "This week, we sat with independent world health the leaders to further understand how to get closer to vaccine equity and ending this health crisis. Every single person on this planet has a fundamental right to get this vaccine. That's the point, but that's not happening."

Previously, the pair put a pause on their podcast deal with Spotify over "concerns" that there was "COVID-19 misinformation" on the platform. "Hundreds of millions of people are affected by the serious harms of rampant mis- and disinformation every day," an Archewell spokesperson said. "We have continued to express our concerns to Spotify to ensure changes to its platform are made to help address this public health crisis. We look to Spotify to meet this moment and are committed to continuing our work together as it does."
