Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently stepped out in New York for their first joint appearances since the birth of their daughter, Lilibet Diana, on June 4. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended to participate in Global Citizen Live, to promote equal access to the COVID-19 vaccine as well as a reading at a school in Harlem. Royal commentator Katie Nicholl pointed out a notable inconsistency between the outing and the image the couple have wanted to offer the world of themselves.
The couple did face some criticism for the visit, including the fact that they travelled back to Montecito by private jet, after being vocal about the effects of climate change.
Ms Nicholl, the Royal editor of Vanity Fair, spoke about the event on The Royal Beat.
She said: “Turning up at an underprivileged school in Harlem, in a couture coat that costs more than the combined incomes of most of those parents at the school.”
“It doesn’t make any sense. It just shows them to not be in touch.”

The Duchess and Harry stepped down from their role as working royals in the British monarchy last year.
When they made the decision, they rescinded their rights to use their HRH titles and stopped receiving public funds for royal duties.
The Duke and Duchess had previously said they planned to carve out a “progressive new role” in the Royal Family and intended to “work to become financially independent”.
This saw them launch their non-profit, the Archewell Foundation.
