About the Global Citizen event
Prince Harry and his American-born wife currently serve as campaign chairs for the VAX Live campaign. The campaign has attracted a number of celebrities, including Jennifer Lopez and Selena Gomez.
The Express quotes the Heir Pod podcast as saying Prince Harry “reveled” in the “rapturous” adulation he received at the VAX live concert. Reportedly, he exuded a “rockstar vibe” on stage.
The event featured a star-studded cast of musicians in a concert for 20,000 fans. It was held at the SoFi stadium in Inglewood, California. The festival was organized by the Global Citizen action group to raise money to purchase vaccines for populations around the world.
On his podcast, Royal author Omid Scobie said Harry would have been “itching” for such a welcome since arriving in the US.
