The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were molested upon arriving for the former’s keynote speech at the United Nations in New York on Monday July 18.

Prince Harry, 37, and Meghan Markle, 40, arrived at the United Nations headquarters hand in hand before the Duke delivered a speech on Nelson Mandela’s legacy. In his speech on International Nelson Mandela Day, Harry warned of a “global attack on democracy and freedom”. He also spoke about his mother, Princess Diana, and delved into the war in Ukraine and abortion laws in the US. However, not everyone welcomed the Sussexes to the event.

A protester waited outside the UN headquarters building to berate the couple upon their arrival. “Mandela spent 27 years behind bars in SA,” read a poster posted by the protester. “Markle has spent 18 months in locks complaining on TV during a pandemic. Why are you here?”

The Sussexes have also been slammed by some Republican leaders. As shared by GBNews, Michigan MP Lisa McClain said: “Once again, the Duke and Duchess are poking their nose into American politics by attacking the US rule of law. I think it’s about time we bought them a history book on the Revolutionary War to remind them that our government stopped caring about the opinion of the royals in 1776.”

Georgia Representative Buddy Carter added: “The United States protects the lives of unborn children. Russia kills innocent Ukrainians. We are not the same and it is sick and perverse to compare the two ‘democracy and freedom’ that are so important to him.”

Harry delivered an impassioned speech about Mandela, a man “who has endured the very worst of humanity – vicious racism and state-sponsored brutality”. The Duke also spoke about his mother Diana, Princess of Wales, who met with the decorated South African leader in March 1997, and how he himself “seeked consolation” in Africa after her death. Still, many accused him of only speaking “for Netflix” and “to raise money” at the high-profile event.

During an appearance on TalkTV, royal biographer Tom Bower told host Piers Morgan that Harry agreed to speak “because he needs a profile,” adding that everything he and his wife do is “to protect the future.” documentary series built around”.

This comes as Meghan is rumored to be pursuing her political ambitions while continuing to make waves as an activist. The Duchess recently joined feminist icon and journalist Gloria Steinem in seeking ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. She also expressed her willingness to march in Washington, D.C. to protest the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Harry appeared to support his wife’s newfound interest in politics, commenting on the dangers of climate change, the Covid pandemic, “gun lies and disinformation”, the situation in Ukraine and abortion rights.

“We are living through a pandemic that continues to devastate communities in all parts of the world; climate change is wreaking havoc on our planet, with the most vulnerable suffering the most; the few who arm lies and disinformation at the expense of the many; and from the appalling war in Ukraine to the roll-back of constitutional rights here in the United States,” the Duke said. “We are witnessing a global assault on democracy and freedom – the cause of Mandela’s life,” he stressed.
