LIVE FROM THE ROYAL FAMILY: Prince Harry stuns Sussex fans with a rare appearance in the United Kingdom.
ON WEDNESDAY, PRINCE HARRY shocked Sussex fans by making a rare virtual UK presence.
Prince Harry, 36, made a virtual presence at the British GQ Men of the Year Awards in London through a webcast from the United States. Professor Sarah Gilbert, Dr. Catherine Green, and the AstraZeneca team from the University of Oxford, who were responsible for developing the life-saving COVID-19 vaccine, received the Hero Award. “I’m very honoured to be introducing our last honorees, who you’ll immediately recognise for their significant contribution to the fight against COVID-19,” the Prince added, dressed in a customary black velvet tuxedo and speaking live from California at roughly 3 p.m. Los Angeles time.
Professor Sarah Gilbert, Doctor Catherine Green, and the entire team of dedicated Oxford scientists are our heroes of the evening.
“Their groundbreaking Oxford Vaccination research has given the world one of our most powerful instruments for attaining vaccine equity.”
“They also tackled their mission with a humanitarian urgency,” the Duke continued.
“In April of last year, the Oxford Team secretly shipped a shipment of study cultures to India—an early illustration of the biotech collaboration we need to end this global crisis.”
“Until every community can obtain the vaccination, and until every community is connected to reliable information about the vaccine, we are all at risk,” Prince Harry added.
“That’s a familiar theme my wife and I have heard in meetings with vaccine specialists, industry executives, community activists, and world leaders.”
The Prince went on to state that the vaccination has reached “more than five billion” people around the world, implying that more than a third of the world’s population has received at least one dosage.
“However, there is a significant gap between who can and cannot get the vaccine,” Prince Harry continued.
“At this time, less than 2% of people in the developing world have got a single shot, and many of their healthcare staff are still unvaccinated,” he stated.
“If we don’t confront this imbalance as a group, we won’t be able to go forward together.”
The Duke then urged world leaders and pharmaceutical executives to “keep doing our part,” emphasizing that “where you’re born should not affect your ability to survive.”
