Amid applause for Prince William, Meghan Markle finds herself in a moment of shame as Secretary-General Antonio Guterres unveils a surprising revelation about her alleged meeting with him at the United Nations.
On September 18, Prince William engaged in discussions with the Secretary-General of the United Nations in New York, emphasizing the imperative need to accelerate efforts to combat climate change and safeguard our environment, as ‘confirmed a UN spokesperson.
Their dialogue also extended to strategies to improve the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, as well as discussions regarding financing for development. Antonio’s spokesperson said Prince William’s visit coincided with the annual high-level gathering of world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly, where Guterres will host a summit on all-important climate ambition .
Leaders met at the United Nations on Monday and Tuesday to deliberate on the Sustainable Development Goals set out in Agenda 2015, including ending hunger, reducing extreme poverty, tackling climate change and achieving gender equality. Guterres stressed the need for a comprehensive rescue plan to achieve these goals, deeming Prince William’s contribution both vital and pragmatic.
Antonio Guterres’ statements inadvertently stoked anger among Meghan and Harry’s supporters, as they unintentionally sowed doubt about Meghan’s past claims. Last year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle traveled to the United Nations in New York to meet Secretary-General Antonio Guterres during the annual gathering of world leaders. Meghan previously described the meeting as a “lovely meeting” with Guterres, but the secretary-general has now confirmed that Prince William is the first prince he has engaged with.
Additionally, during their visit last year, Prince Harry addressed the United Nations General Assembly, and while Meghan’s description of the meeting seemed positive, it’s worth noting that the audience was particularly sparse. Photographs of the event revealed many empty seats in the vast meeting room.
This revelation could have consequences for Meghan and Harry, especially as they position themselves as the next generation’s leaders on environmental and global issues. Prince William’s two-day visit to promote his Earthshot Prize, an ambitious environmental prize aimed at discovering and developing innovative solutions to tackle planetary challenges, is likely to have a significant impact. The award encompasses categories such as protecting and restoring nature, cleaning our air, revitalizing our oceans, building a world without waste, and repairing our climate.
Singapore is set to host the third Earthshot Awards ceremony in November, following previous events in Boston and London. Prince William’s commitment to the initiative comes as a major blow to Meghan and Harry’s aspirations, as it highlights his dedication to environmental causes and his growing influence on the world stage.
