During Vax Live: A Concert to Reunite the World, which was recorded on Sunday, May 2 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles and might be televised on Saturday, May 8, the Duke of Sussex took the stage to implore everybody to work collectively in defeating the continuing pandemic. This marked his first public occasion since attending Prince Philip‘s funeral in London final month.
“We are at a defining moment in the global fight against COVID-19,” Harry instructed the viewers of well being-care and important staff, as seen in clips posted to social media, in addition to protection in a number of media shops. “Tonight is a celebration of each of you here, the vaccinated frontline workers in the audience and the millions of frontline heroes around the world.”
He continued, “You spent the last year battling courageously and selflessly to protect us all. You served and sacrificed, put yourselves in harm’s way and acted with bravery, knowing the costs. We owe you an incredible depth of gratitude. Thank you.”
