Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have touched down in New York City—but they brought a little piece of home with them. During the couple's first joint appearance since their move to the United States last year, Prince Harry was photographed holding a portfolio briefcase that read, adorably, "Archie's Papa." He was leaving the United Nations building at the time, where the prince and Meghan had met with the U.S. ambassador to the UN, Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield.
Tweeted Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield: “Wonderful meeting with Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Important discussion of COVID, racial justice, and raising mental health awareness." The couple are in town for the Global Citizen Live event in Central Park this weekend, billed as a "gathering of Global Citizens, historic artists, and global leaders...just one part of 24 hours of action dedicated to our campaign, a Recovery Plan for the World."
Here's Harry leaving the United Nations building in NYC:
And here's a close-up of his briefcase portfolio:
Here's Harry holding it alongside some papers a little later in the day:
It's not clear how Harry got the briefcase–whether it's one he had specially made and brought from home (which makes me want to cry thinking about?), or whether it was a goodwill gift given to him by one of the leaders he met on the first day of his trip. (Maybe Meghan got a matching one?) Either way, adorable!
