Meghan Markle at Global Citizen Live

Meghan Markle told supporters at the Global Citizen Live concert in Central Park, New York, how big pharmaceutical companies must waive their intellectual property rights over the coronavirus vaccine on Saturday, September 25.

The Duchess of Sussex said: "Every single person on this planet has a fundamental right to get this vaccine. That's the point—yet that's not happening. While in this country (and many others) you can go almost anywhere and get vaccinated, billions around the world cannot.

"This year, the world is expected to produce enough doses to meet the target of vaccinating 70 percent of people in every single country. But it is wrong that so much of the vaccine supply has only gone to just 10 wealthy nations so far, and not everyone else."
