“My husband and I are thrilled to soon be welcoming a daughter,” said the Duchess of Sussex.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are excited for their baby girl to come.
Meghan who is expecting her second child virtually appeared at the Global Citizen’s Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World on Saturday.
“My husband and I are thrilled to soon be welcoming a daughter,” Meghan said “It’s a feeling of joy we share with millions of other families around the world. When we think of her, we think of all the young women and girls around the globe who must be given the ability and the support to lead us forward.”
“Their future leadership depends on the decisions we make and the actions we take now to set them up, and set all of us up, for a successful, equitable, compassionate tomorrow,” she added “We want to make sure that as we recover, we recover stronger. That as we rebuild, we rebuild together.”
In her speech she was seen wearing a powerful piece of jewellery. The ornament along with it’s pendant is known as “Women Power Charm Necklace.” The pendant of the necklace displays the female sign adjacent to a raised fist.
In her speech Meghan also mentioned the importance of giving equal access to the COVID vaccine for future generations.
“We’ve gathered tonight because the road ahead is getting brighter. But it’s going to take every one of us to find our way forward. As campaign chairs of Vax Live, my husband and I believe it’s critical that our recovery prioritizes the health, safety and success of everyone, particularly women who have been disproportionately affected by this pandemic,” said Meghan.
“Women, and especially women of color, have seen a generation of economic gain wiped out. Since the pandemic began, nearly five-and-a-half million women have lost work in the U.S. And 47 million more women around the world are expected to slip into extreme poverty,” she also said.

Prince Harry and Meghan served as the campaign chairs of the star studded show. It’s aim was to expand donations and sharing of vaccine doses to priority populations across the globe.
Before the broadcast on Saturday evening, Global Citizen aired a clip where Harry discusses why the campaign is so important to him.
“Over the last year, everyone has experienced so much loss and so much struggle and I think the only way that we are really going to heal and recover is to do that together,” Harry said.
“When [Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans] asked us to be campaign chairs, of course, we jumped at the opportunity to say yes, to throw our support behind this because we believe in it,” he proceeded. “But I think what we really need to be aware of and what we cannot allow to happen, is science being politicized.”
