Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan visit One World Trade Center in New York


Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are in New York! The couple made their first in-person public appearance since welcoming baby Lilibet in June by stepping out to One World Observatory in New York City.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were joined by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Governor Kathy Hochul at the landmark. It was a poignant visit because the One World Trade Center is built on the original site of the One and Two World Trade Center, the Twin Towers. The Sussexes' visit comes two weeks after the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Earlier this month, the couple took to their Archewell website to remember those who lost their lives in the attacks.

Meghan topped her minimalist ensemble with pointed-toe heels and elegant jewelry.
