If Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s New York trip taught us anything, it is that the Sussexes are now on par with celebrities like Taylor Swift.
The Duke and Duchess’ trip to the Big Apple in late September made headlines for a number of reasons. And after appearing at the Global Citizen Live event, the couple was placed in the same category as a number of other A-Stars who were also in attendance. That’s what Meghan and Harry think about and now they have something in common with the Shake It Off singer.
Prince Harry and Meghan had several engagements in NYC
Stops on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s New York trip included visiting teenagers at the PS 123 Mahalia Jackson School in Harlem and a tour of our One World Trade Center and the 9/11 Memorial with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Governor Kathy Hochul. They also spoke at the Global Citizen Live event.
Prince Harry and his wife took the stage and gave a speech on vaccine equality. “My wife and I believe that the place you were born should not dictate your ability to survive. Especially when there are treatments to keep you safe, ”Harry told the crowd. Meghan then added, “Look, we know it feels like this pandemic has been going on forever. We get it, it’s a lot, and some people just get over it. But when everyone is over it, it will never be over. There is so much we can do today to get closer to ending this pandemic. “

What the Sussexes have in common with Taylor Swift
The Sussexes traveled with a lot of safety during their trip, including the man known for protecting celebrities like Swift.
On the podcast pod Save The Queen, royal expert Russell Myers said, “The only thing I read that I found very interesting was that Meghan and Harry hired the same bodyguards as Taylor Swift. There’s a guy who’s been photographed, a retired NYPD officer named Jimmy who looks after Taylor Swift, so we’re certainly in the higher echelons of the AAA list, aren’t we. “
Myers added, “It is not known whether Taylor loaned the guards and Jimmy to Meghan and Harry themselves, or hired him from a company. But he and his security guards were certainly seen at the hotel on the Upper East Side where Harry and Meghan stayed during their trip and coordinated the large fleet of vehicles [were] rolling through town to take them to all the different engagements. “

Who else was out with the Duke and Duchess?
Their own photographers and videographers were also spotted on the trip with Meghan and Harry.
It was reported that they accompanied the Sussexes and recorded their visit for “a rumored Netflix documentary about their lives”. The couple signed a $ 100 million deal with the streaming giant last year to produce content for the platform.
