Prince Harry Stands In Solidarity With India Amid The Second Wave Of COVID-19; 'When Any Suffer, We All Suffer'
The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry attended Global Citizen's VAX Live: The Concert to Reunite the World on Sunday along with his wife and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle. He marked his first appearance back in the U.S. after his late grandfather Prince Philip's funeral and the couple's interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired in March. He started his speech by addressing the relentless work of the frontline warriors who were battling courageously since last year to selflessly protect us all. He expressed his gratitude towards those who’ve served and sacrificed, knowing the costs. 

Amidst his strong speech, Harry even said they are standing in solidarity with Indians who are ‘battling a devastating second wave’ of COVID. “None of us should be comfortable thinking that we could be fine when so many others are suffering. In reality, and especially with this pandemic, when any suffer, we all suffer. We must look beyond ourselves with empathy and compassion for those we know, and those we don't. We need to lift up all of humanity and make sure that no person or community is left behind. What we do at this moment will stand in history and tonight, we stand in solidarity with the millions of families across India who are battling a devastating second wave,” he said during the concert and was quoted by People.

Prince Harry also said that ‘the vaccine must be distributed to everyone everywhere’ and one just cannot rest ‘until there is a fair distribution to every corner of the world.’ “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,” Harry continued.
