Start spreading the news! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are taking New York by storm and in style.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex began a trip to New York City this week, marking their first joint visit to the city and the first official joint outing by the formerly royal couple since they welcomed their second child and first daughter Lilibet "Lili" Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, in June.

Meghan and Harry, who left the U.K. monarchy in 2020 and are longtime philanthropists, are in New York to attend Saturday's 2021 Global Citizen Live event, the Global Poverty Project charity's 24-hour music festival, which this year is pushing equal access to COVID-19 vaccines.

During their trip, the couple visited a school in Harlem, where the duchess read to students from her children's book The Bench. Meghan, who showcased sleek fashion statements during their travels, and Harry also visited the United Nations headquarters and the National September 11 Memorial & Museum and met with top officials.

School Visit

On Friday, Sept. 24, the couple visited the P.S. 123 Mahalia Jackson school in Harlem in a bid to promote early literacy.

Reading to the Kids

The masked couple met with students and Megan read her children's book The Bench, inspired by Harry's relationship with their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, 2, to a group of second graders gathered outside.

"I wrote this when we just had our little boy," she said, according to multiple outlets, "and I haven't read it to any other kids but you."

Megan, who celebrated her baby shower during a solo trip to New York City when she was pregnant with Archie in 2019, wore a burgundy coat and matching top, pants and pumps for the visit. Her husband, who visited the city many times on his own when he was a working royal, wore a navy polo shirt and khakis.

Hugs All Around

At the school, Meghan and Harry were photographed posing with and hugging the students. Some kids also gifted them pink paper hearts on which they wrote personal stories. Meghan went through them individually, addressing each student by name, The New York Post reported.

Who's That?

Also during the visit, one student shouted out, pointing at Harry, "That's Queen Elizabeth's son," the newspaper reported. The duke is the queen's grandson.

Healthy Gift

Before they left, Megan and Harry donated to the school two garden boxes filled with vegetables and herbs, the outlet said.

Lunch Date

After visiting students, Harry and Meghan stopped by Melba's in Harlem for an afternoon lunch. "They were super nice to other customers and were overheard raving about the food," a source shared with E! News.

On Thursday, Sept. 23, the couple visited the One World Observatory at the site of the World Trade Center and toured the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. They met with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, New York State Governor Kathy Hochul and other officials.
