Harry and Meghan, as part of the Vax Live Charity Concert, have now sent a letter to various pharmaceutical companies demanding that they expand access to the COVID-19 vaccines.
Thank goodness the Duke and Duchess of Montecito are there to protect the world from the scourge of the pandemic.
In an open letter, the Hollywood duo said, “The world owes you gratitude for leading the successful development and manufacturing of safe and effective vaccines against COVID-19. This was achieved in record time, amidst a once-in-a-century global pandemic. It’s truly a testament to what can be achieved when partners work together towards a shared goal.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated health, social, and economic inequality globally. The global vaccine rollout thus far further deepens these disparities, with the poorest and most marginalized populations most adversely impacted. As of May 1, over 80% of the 1.2 billion vaccine doses administered globally have occurred in high-and upper-middle-income countries while the very lowest-income countries have administered just 0.4%.”
“As we are seeing in countries like India, the urgency to deliver doses now to save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19 is only increasing. That’s why it is imperative that we ensure equitable vaccine access globally so that people are protected, economies can recover, and this global pandemic can be brought to an end everywhere.
“Thereforewe, the undersigned, stand with Global Citizens who want to see COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers act with extraordinary purpose, responsibility, and leadership in response to this equity crisis, including through the following actions.”
Then the couple goes line-by-line, asking Modern to “move up your delivery schedule with COVAX and increase the promised 2021 volume to at least 100 million.” They ask Pfizer to also “commit at least 100 million additional doses to COVAX at a not-for-profit price and to deliver them as soon as possible this year.” And asks the other companies to generally “increase global supply.”
It’s signed by the Vax Live Campaign Chairs Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.
I’m sorry, but what authority do these two have to demand anything from anyone. Open letters like this are something American politicians do, the people who have a modicum of authority and influence on the national and international stage.
These are simply two narcissistic dummies in Montecito living in a multi-million-dollar mansion who complained about their lot in life on Oprah.
Do they know about how the vaccine is manufactured? How easy is it for these companies to increase production? Do they know about the financial strains that any of these companies are under if they give away everything for free? What about their employees, have they been overworked already trying to get this vaccine done?
They are royals in the UNITED KINGDOM, not the United States. How dare they try to establish their own court in my country, acting like their meaningless title given to them by a foreign monarch has any sway on activities in this country.
It’s embarrassing, disrespectful, egotistical and another sign that their titles must be stripped, and Harry and his children removed from the line of succession.
If they want to use their titles, fine, but not in this country. This is the United States, we fought a war of independence 250 years ago in order to overthrow royal authority. Harry and Meghan live here now, they must change how they act. They are normal citizens here, if they want to be special, then they need to go back to his home.
