The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will appear during the show at Central Park in New York City to encourage the donation of at least one billion COVID-19 doses to the places around the world who are are in need. During Citizen's VAX Live: The Concert to Reunite the World, held earlier this year, Prince Harry said, "The vaccine must be distributed to everyone everywhere. We cannot rest or truly recover until there is fair distribution to every corner of the world. The mission in front of us is one we cannot afford to fail out and that’s what tonight is about. The virus does not respect borders and access to the vaccine cannot be determined by geography. It must be accepted as a basic right for all and that is our starting point."
