During their speech, the couple shed light on the access to COVID-19 vaccines being limited to a handful of nations. Prince Harry said, “My wife and I believe that where you’re born should not dictate your ability to survive.” Also, Markle added, “It is wrong that so much of the vaccine supply has only gone to just 10 wealthy nations so far. . . It’s just not okay.”
